Dashboard tools can be configured according to station or operator preference, providing a tailored overview of archive activity within the facility relevant to the user, a key feature of the FlashNet Infinity system.

The SGL FlashNet Infinity dashboard is simple to navigate with visually pleasing data analysis and reports. Detailed health checks provide key benefits. Users can easily check throughput relating to the number of current or completed jobs defined by asset, department or system for any time period. These trend analyses can be used for projecting future capacity and throughput requirements.

FlashNet Infinity provides small broadcasters that don’t have a MAM system with basic management tools that allow them to see what’s in the archive or stored on a certain disc so that they can archive material on the disc, or restore material in the archive, viewing a low res copy on the FlashNet Infinity dashboard.

Lee Sheppard, SGL’s Director of Product Management says, “We’re really excited to launch FlashNet Infinity at NAB 2016. The dashboard provides the next-generation of archive management with sophisticated tools that very quickly and easily give detailed analysis of the heart of the facility as well as monitoring, reports and much more. We look forward to making further FlashNet Infinity announcements over the coming months.”
