Spectra Logic has announced that ITV, the UK’s largest commercial television network, has selected two Spectra BlackPearl Converged Storage Systems and two Spectra T950 Tape Libraries to protect and preserve the organisation’s digital assets long-term. The solution enables ITV to send digital assets to dispersed data centre locations on differing media types, to assure the ultimate safety and security of their content with a genetically diverse data preservation strategy.
“Spectra has met all of ITV’s criteria, providing a simple, affordable and easy-to-use digital archive that is purpose-built to meet our needs,” said Marcel Mester, senior project manager, ITV. “We are confident in the ability of our Spectra solution to preserve our video content for future generations
“As an existing Spectra customer, ITV was familiar with Spectra’s products and services and confident in our ability to deliver exactly what they needed in a digital archive solution,” said Brian Grainger, chief sales officer, Spectra Logic. “The combination of Spectra’s BlackPearl and tape libraries streamlines ITV’s digital workflow, eliminating costly middleware and simplifying the management of their assets. It keeps their content safe and secure, while still allowing creative departments to quickly access data as needed.”
