Las Vegas—WCPMedia Services, developer of the cloud-based media asset management platform WCPApp, is powered by technology from Western Digital Corporation (NASDAQ: WDC), a maker of leading-edge cloud storage solutions. WCPMedia is a Platform as a Service solution that allows content owners to manage, market, transcode and deliver media assets to production partners, broadcasters and distributors.
WCPMedia Services will be demonstrating WCPApp at Western Digital Corporation’s HGST’s booth (SL9721) at NAB, April 18-21 in Las Vegas.
The application is used by studios, distribution companies, producers, institutions and others worldwide to eliminate the time, costs and security risks associated with physical delivery, and gain better control over high-value media assets.
WCP has designed its infrastructure with scalability in mind. The ability to manage large data sets is essential for storage purposes and the smooth operation of the front-end web application. It is even more critical for online services such as ultra-fast file transfers and transcoding on demand.
WCP’s specialized service platform for media and entertainment clients’ high-value content is hosted by the private, Tier 4 secure Swiss data center, Moresi.com, in a partnership spanning several years. Storage at Moresi.com is part of the even wider Moresi storage infrastructure, supported by over four petabytes of Western Digital Corporation storage.
One of the key components of WCP’s architecture is a fast scalable storage configuration, shared by transcoding farm servers and accelerated file transfer software. The SAN leverages Western Digital Corporation’s disk technology and is controlled by a new type of architecture that embeds shared, ultra-fast storage layers into a virtual environment. This configuration also facilitates ultra-fast file transfers and transcoding on-demand.
The result is in a boost in performance for the transcoding and QC engines that is a true game changer.
