Cambridge Imaging Systems previews next-gen Imagen system and demonstrates seamless integration with partners at IBC 2014 25 Jul 2014

At IBC 2014 Cambridge Imaging Systems will preview the new version of Imagen, the world-class media management and publishing solution, as well as demonstrating strong relationships with companies including Microsoft, Quantum and Spectra Logic that will help users to create scalable, secure end-to-end workflows. The company will discuss these partnerships and present demonstrations of Imagen 3.4 at IBC 2014 on Stand 6.C23.

The first look at Imagen 3.4 will reveal cloud-based object storage support for Microsoft Azure and Amazon cloud services. Imagen users can now take advantage of low cost cloud storage for backups, proxies, or even as a primary resource. Imagen's storage service now offers simple drop down menus for easy access to Microsoft Azure's Blob and Amazon's S3 cloud storage systems. The object-based storage solutions offered by these vendors offers incredible scale and affordability for anyone using Imagen.

Imagen 3.4 also offers an exciting new range of stock website themes and browser-based schema editing. The new version of Imagen is scheduled for delivery in October 2014.

Cambridge Imaging Systems is also building on its relationship with Quantum, the leading provider of specialised scale-out storage and data protection solutions, with the introduction of IQ, a new unified production, storage, delivery and archive platform. This best of breed integration combines Quantum's StorNext Pro STUDIO scale-out storage appliances with the flexibility of Imagen media management and publishing software. Bridging the gaps between production, archive and delivery, IQ offers next generation content storage management, long term preservation and monetisation through a customisable web platform.

In addition Imagen's storage service API has been extended to support Spectra Logic's BlackPearl deep storage appliance, giving Imagen users the ability to deploy a tier of deep storage that is cost effective, easy to manage and scalable. Black Pearl takes advantage of tape's low cost and features economical scaling to Exabyte capacities. The combined solution enables media to be moved seamlessly into mass tape storage.

Cambridge Imaging Systems will also be on the Microsoft stand in Hall 13 demonstrating ImagenCloud, the cloud-based version of Imagen that sits on the Microsoft Azure platform. ImagenCloud offers all the asset management and publishing features of Imagen without the need for hardware expenditure and hosting expertise; it ideal for small and medium size archives that do not have the internal resources or technical expertise to set up the IT infrastructure needed to manage and publish their content online.

Tom Blake, Managing Director, Cambridge Imaging Systems, said, Working with these leading developers means we can combine our strengths and bring together the best asset management and storage solutions in ways that best suit our users. We're excited to present these new workflows to our visitors at IBC 2014.
