MediaKind Video Storage and Processing Platform (VSPP)
For cable companies, multiple service operators (MSOs), telcos and content providers who need a cost efficient, reliable solution for massively scalable video storage and recording that exceeds stringent performance requirements, the MediaKind Video Storage and Processing Platform (VSPP) is the only field proven, large scale software-based solution that provides resiliency, very high throughput, and virtually hands-off maintenance. This platform is highly optimized to minimize hardware footprint and provide the best possible TCO.
Supported use cases
Cloud based DVR applications enable service providers to offer a DVR service without the need todeploy or upgrade to expensive DVR boxes at the subscriber site. By locating the storage and streaming at the network operation center and running an RS-DVR client software at the subscriber site, operators can offer a full DVR service without the need of hardware upgrades at the subscriber.
Dynamic origin server
The origin server is a scale out media storage system that can also perform content transformation, and streaming. The origin ingests MPEG-TS CBR and ABR, and transforms them on-the-fly to RTSP and different OTT formats, thus eliminating the need to store multiple formats.
VSPP tiered architecture
Supports different tiers to address specific streaming patterns as well as content popularity.
With an ongoing transformation to the full-blown Media Edge for the legacy and OTT delivery.

Spectra BlackPearl Converged Storage System
The Spectra® BlackPearl® Converged Storage System solves the problem of costly and complex approaches to digital preservation by combining multiple standard interfaces and storage targets into a simple and affordable solution designed for diverse workflows. BlackPearl incorporates feature-rich software within the ultimate purpose-built hardware platform to modernize content storage. It’s a self-managing, cloud-enabled object storage platform that provides organizations with the openness, scalability, efficiency and control they demand to easily grow and adapt to changing business models. BlackPearl tightly integrates with industry-leading asset management applications to simplify workflows, seamlessly managing large volumes of content. The solution unlocks multiple storage targets including online disk, nearline disk, deep storage tape, and even public cloud. Through BlackPearl’s advanced data policy management software, data can be stored on any storage target and policies can be applied to determine how many copies will be made on each storage target and how long the data will reside there.
Data can be archived to Spectra Logic storage targets via several different paths or workflows. Manual file movement is employed when the user can identify the files to be moved themselves. Advanced scanning software can search a file system and identify files to be archived based on date, project or other criteria. Fully automated archiving software can continuously scan and archive inactive files while still allowing users to access the files as they always have. And applications intended for other specific tasks, such as video asset management software, can allow users to archive directly to Spectra storage without leaving the application.
Spectra Logic partners or customers can also utilize Spectra Logic designed clients or build a Spectra S3 application. With BlackPearl’s product family, organizations will find the perfect fit for their unique workflow.

At 1.5 petabytes in just 4U of rack height, this new system is 83% more dense than Cloudian’s earlier offerings. And it’s 2X the density of what some big-name competitors offer. Furthermore, because it’s an s3-compatible object storage system — not just a drive array — there’s no additional space needed for controllers.
If you’re in a colo, this reduces rack-inches needed by over 70%. If you’re in your own data center, you can delay expansions and do more with the space you have. Either way, you save cost and can do more with the precious space you have.
