DetailsEditor | 02 April 2015

Media logistics platform provider Nativ has forged a partnership with scale-out storage, archive and data protection firm Quantum.

Under the terms of the arrangement, the two companies will integrate Nativ's MioEverywhere media logistics product with Quantum's StorNext 5 shared storage and workflow platform. The result, claim the firms, will be a 'complete' end-to-end digital content platform where workflow orchestrations in MioEverywhere solution can benefit from automated movement of content across different levels of Quantum storage, including Lattus extended online storage and Scalar tape libraries. MioEverywhere will also provide federated search across all levels of storage in each workflow stage and offers access to browser-based tools to enable approvals, logging, search, workflow and media processing. The new solution is also integrated with Adobe Premiere and Prelude to allow transfer of media and metadata between on premise and remote Quantum storage solutions.

Commenting on the move, Nativ CEO Jon Folland said: "Our joint solution will highlight the power of a cloud-based media workflow in enabling digital content producers and owners to control their media and make more money from their content."

Added Alex Grossman, Quantum vice president media and entertainment: "The combined Quantum-Nativ solution provides users with an end-to-end media management and archiving platform optimised for their workflows. This makes the creative process more efficient and enables organisations to leverage their content more easily and cost effectively."
