The System Provides Up To 35 Terabytes of Storage
Gainesville, FL, April 13, 2007 – The TCT Network in Marion, Illinois has recently incorporated a MediaVault Archive System into its Digital Broadcast MediaFire Central Automated Master Control System. Based on blue laser technology, the MediaVault provides the TCT Network up to 35 Terabytes of archive storage.
MediaVault’s Blu-ray disks offer up to 50GB per media and storage libraries up to 35 TB of data and up to 14 parallel data streams with 72Mbps each. Blu-ray media life is greater than 50 years without compromising playback quality, independent of the frequency of playbacks or the need of managed backups. The form factor of drive and media is identical to the CD/DVD format; however, the Blu-ray disk currently has 5 times the density per recording layer of a DVD.
Based on the Blu-ray media, the MediaVault is an automated system that allows the TCT Network random access to its huge storage capacity.
Digital Broadcast’s MediaVault is an enhancement to the MediaFire Central System already operating at the TCT Network. With MediaFire Central, the central site in Marion has complete control and monitoring of the automated playout and satellite recording at the network’s stations in seven different locations. The individual stations, however, do have the ability to control the playout schedule locally, if that should become necessary.
