XenData at IBC Amsterdam Sept. 7th – 11th, 2007 Hall 9 Booth 9.301

(PresseBox) (Munich, ) XenData will be demonstrating the XenData MX Edition of its popular Archive Series Software. The MX Edition runs on three or more Windows 2003 servers to provide high bandwidth long term data storage for demanding digital video archiving applications.

The MX Edition offers two major advantages over competing systems: it provides a single file system interface for ease of integration; and it writes to data tape using the open standard POSIX tar format ensuring data interchange with many third party utilities and applications.

In addition to using the POSIX format, all other aspects of the solution conform to IT industry standards. The system will archive and retrieve all file formats, as if being stored on magnetic disk; file security and access permissions full adhere to the Microsoft security model based on Active Directory; the management consoles are standard Microsoft Management Console snap-ins and error reporting is via the standard Microsoft Event Log. The emphasis on standards ensures longevity of the solution and it contrasts with traditional digital video archiving which uses proprietary management software.

The MX Edition is already successfully integrated and in full operation by a major broadcaster together with a media asset management system. This solution greatly increases the versatility and productivity of high throughput file based broadcast networks.

The MX Edition is fully compatible with the well established XenData Video Edition that runs on a single server, allowing existing XenData customers to easily upgrade if they require additional throughput for their digital archive.

The full solution will be demonstrated at IBC 2007 Amsterdam from 7 to 11 September at the XenData Booth in Hall 9 9.301.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Amsterdam.
