announces that SingTel
has purchased a BrightDrive media recording system. The new system will provide the primary workflow infrastructure for a new data-centric postproduction facility for SingTel`s IPTV service, mio TV.
BrightDrive`s media sharing technology is central to the facility`s new tapeless postproduction workflow. SD or HD source tapes are captured into BrightDrive using dedicated ingest stations. A range of systems, including 11 Final Cut Pro/Kona systems, are able to access multiple real-time streams of 2k media simultaneously across the network. This allows processes such as editing and encoding to take place at the same time. The final encoded files are pushed across to mio TV`s streaming servers.
SingTel mio TV`s BrightDrive is being installed and supported by The Media Village, Bright Systems` business partner for SE Asia.
