Vienna, Austria (June 17, 2011)–Belgian broadcaster VRT will base its new digital music archive on NOA mediARC.
NOA Audio Solutions has announced that Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroep (VRT), the major Flemish-language broadcaster in Belgium, will install mediARC with 10 clients, associated software including mediARC Web and ediaButler transcoding, and several NOA IngestLine CD-Lector migration devices.
“We were really impressed with the comprehensiveness of the NOA bid and with the technology NOA can provide,” said Tom Caljon, VRT project manager. “NOA’s unique knowledge of archiving and search best practices will help make it possible for VRT users to find what they are looking for in our database for years to come – even with millions of entries to choose from.”
VRT’s muziekbeheer (music management) project will eventually migrate to a managed, digital archive of some 150,000 CDs for secure, accessible preservation with the best possible audio quality for the long term. The project also calls for NOA to develop new features to be integrated into future versions of the mediARC product, which will benefit all existing and future mediARC users. These include API extensions to facilitate software integration, and enhanced load balancing for moving content in and out of storage. NOA will also enhance its Web lookup feature’s ability to find metadata relevant to an individual CD online, associate it with the CD, and then occasionally merge it with information already contained in the local database. This will help streamline the database and ultimately improve both the accuracy and speed of search and retrieval.
