CUPERTINO, Calif. - (BUSINESS WIRE), September 08, 2010

Interra Systems, Inc, the industry leader in QC or Automated Content Verification with its BatonT product, today announced the integration of Baton with storage servers of SeaChange International Inc., an industry leading provider of multi-channel playout servers and scalable IT MediaLibrary storage that deliver a high-quality television experience.

The SeaChange Universal MediaLibrary (UML) meets the demands for scalable, reliable and multi-format play-to-air storage of today's broadcast operations. Considered as the next-generation IP storage, this enterprise-class server infrastructure offers simple-to-manage, open storage that enables broadcasters to economically deploy and expand their operations. It also serves as a play-to-air server as well as the production storage for today's most popular non-linear editors.

Moreover, current and future users of the SeaChange Broadcast MediaLibrary (BML) 24000ex can also take advantage of this integration, as SeaChange BML 24000ex - a high performance, fault-resilient digital media library - also supports Baton's automated content verification solution. BML 24000ex caters to media companies that aim to achieve a seamless, highly reliable tapeless workflow.

Interra's Baton is the industry's leading QC or Automated Content Verification system that ensures content readiness in file-based SD, HD, and mixed workflows. Baton is used in production by leading Broadcasters, Post-production houses and Studios.

The integration enables Baton to support efficient content verification for customers using SeaChange UML. Baton can seamlessly access content on these systems with support for content access via both FTP and CIFS protocols. This enables in-place verification of media content, resulting in higher throughput and enhanced workflow efficiencies.
