Comprehensive solution for online content management

The logical extension of a MAM system is an Archive. This way, files that are no longer needed for daily production can be moved offline to cheaper LTO tape storage.

Advantages of the Solution

  • Fully web based application, browser access
  • Archive and restore through Archiware P5, triggered from eMAM interface
  • Economic use of precious online storage space thanks to easy archiving
  • Automated, rule based archiving processes
  • Professional long-term storage on LTO tape
  • Tape cloning for offsite storage
  • Parallelization for higher performance
  • Cost effective extension that pays off by saving online storage investment

eMAM is a powerful media asset management system designed to simplify managing video content. With an online proxy library accessible worldwide, eMAM is flexible enough to run as a local installation, a cloud-based deployment or as a hybrid system.

Media assets are organized through an intuitive web interface. Users can collaborate at every step of the process with AI-tagging, online editing, commenting tools, and shareable links for approval and distribution. 

eMAM’s security allows users to control access to their media through configurable restrictions.

eMAM can be purchased as a permanent license or as a subscription to run on local or cloud infrastructure. eMAM Cloud now allows customers to get eMAM as SaaS monthly or a PaaS/VM version on the Amazon AWS Marketplace.

Triggering an archiving process in the eMAM interface

Content is managed via the web interface. For the user, assets remain searchable and proxies can be viewed independent of their location. Using the same web interface, single files, groups of files, folders and categories can be moved to or retrieved from the Archive through the integration with Archiware P5 Archive.

P5 Archive supports LTO drives and libraries from virtually any manufacturer such as Tandberg, SpectraLogic, IBM and Quantum, to name just a few, so it can be run in any storage environment.

Archiving and restoring processes run in the background, but the status can be monitored in the eMAM dashboard.

Cloning adds professional level security by creating two identical tape sets, one for off-site storage. Scalability regarding performance and number of archive/restore jobs running simultaneously is provided by the Archiware P5 Archive parallelization feature.
