Solid State Logic announces a major expansion of its business with products based on its new MediaWAN technology platform, encompassing all aspects of digital video acquisition and storage technologies. The expansion results from merging the operations of Broadcast Devices LLC (BDL), developer of MediaWAN, with those of SSL.

MediaWAN Gravity is a complete, scalable broadcast production system that uses proprietary software running on standard high-performance PCs and servers. Geared to the fast-moving, multi-format nature of today’s media operations, the software provides encoders for importing video from a variety of sources (including HD), a preview and job allocation interface for production coordinators, editing software for journalists and management tools for news producers. An asset management database and user interface also provide for seamless information lifecycle management in the video domain.

In addition, MediaWAN technology has also been developed to provide a cost-effective backhaul service. MediaWAN Backhaul allows media networks to install encoders at remote locations and automatically ingest video and audio content to central servers where it is immediately available for use. The system operates over a private MPLS network that provides a high QoS and highly efficient use of the bandwidth enabling broadcast-resolution video to be delivered at a fraction of the cost of traditional satellite transmission. The company states that the system operates at very low latency, which improves the performance of the circuit for remote interviews.
