Launching the FIFOPro Ingest Back-Up System at NAB 2014

By Arco Groenenberg

At next week’s NAB Show, we’ll unveil our new FIFOPro ingest back-up system – an ideal solution for news departments and live production applications to streamline workflows and save time, space and money.

Traditionally for SAN back up, broadcasters have relied on recording onto multiple tape decks, one for each feed, with station personnel manually loading, labeling, cataloging and storing each tape for back-up FIFOpro_PressImage_nologoinsurance. In this mode of operation, if the need arises to restore from tape, it must be manually de-archived, taken to the editing bay, loaded and then transcoded into the proper format prior to editing.

FIFOPro has been created out of market demand for an easier, more efficient way to back up ingest. The system provides an automated workflow. It continually records and archives multiple HD-SDI feeds on a rolling First-in/First-out (FIFO) basis, retaining all content for 72 hours before deleting it from the system. This data is automatically recorded in an edit-ready AVCi 50 format along with its metadata, including channel, date and time. If original content is lost or damaged, it’s a simple process to find and access the stored media via web browser and export the selected clips to the watch folder for immediate editing.

If you’re a broadcaster or live event producer looking for an ingest back-up system to simplify your operations, Digital Nirvana has the perfect solution for you. Stop by our NAB booth, SU11017, to learn more about FIFOPro and how our other new technologies can benefit you.
