GP archives has renewed its confidence in Opsomai for the migration of all its digital files towards a LTO-8 backup.
Back in 2014, when Opsomai already upgraded the technical platform of GP archives, which was called Gaumont Pathé Archives at this time, in order to digitalize its film library in 2K and 4K, Opsomai installed the HSM module (Hierarchical Storage Management) that comes with its Media Asset Management software Opsis Media. Thanks to this module, GP archives was able to backup all the DPX and ProRes files produced by its film digitalization scanner and delivers these assets as full length programs or user defined clips directly from these tapes, through its Web portal.
In 2021, Opsomai is going to replace the Overland-Tandberg LTO-6 library that was installed in 2014 by a more recent model with LTO-8 drives and to transfer these archives from one library to another, moving therefore 15,000 hours of archives that weigh more than 1 PB. Opsomai will also take this opportunity to upgrade its Opsis Media software to its latest version, in order to further optimise client access to the leading French bank of moving pictures in black and white and color from 1895 to today. Meanwhile, GP archives speeds up its archives digitalization plan with the acquisition of a second 5K scanner.
