ERA showcases enhanced automated workflow & intelligent archive solutions at BVE North 2012
ERA Ltd, an IT infrastructure and application reseller specialising in Post Production, Broadcast and Media, will showcase enhancements to ERA MediaFlow, its innovative workflow automation solution, and present StorageDNA LTO LTFS archiving at Broadcast Video Expo North, Manchester Central Arena, 13-14 November (Stand F5).
Launched earlier this year and already delivering operational benefits and cost-savings to international media companies, ERA MediaFlow is an enterprise-class multi-client workflow automation solution that effectively controls media assets, projects and resources – all through a single web-based platform. Resilient, scalable and feature-rich, ERA MediaFlow helps identify and eliminate bottlenecks in even the most complex workflow and enables effective remote collaboration. At BVE North 2012, the team will demonstrate the latest feature enhancement that allows a DPX sequence to be validated and automatically moved through the workflow as a single object; removing the need to manually control DPX files, simplifying media management and reducing costs.
Also at the show, ERA will present the latest version of DNA EvolutionTM, the intelligent LTO-5 LTFS archive and retrieval workflow solution from Storage DNA. Powering complex and critical workflows for customers ranging from film studios, television production companies to government agencies, DNA EvolutionTM optimises the management and delivery of file-based digital media in most environments (including Avid, Final Cut Pro, P2, RED, Arri and AJA Ki Pro); allowing companies to archive, locate, restore and share content at blistering speeds.
“With a powerful set of workflow solutions and experience of complex IT integration, ERA is well-placed to help media companies cost-effectively manage, store and distribute their digital assets” says Sean Baker, ERA Ltd. Commercial Director. “Our focus on open architecture, flexibility, scalability and performance is delivering real tangible benefits to our clients, helping them to what they do best in today’s competitive market.”
