Jordi AG Communication launches ADAM BOX Automated Digital Archiving

Dietikon/Amsterdam 01.September 2017 – Jordi AG Communication, the Swiss-based system integrator and manufacturer, is introducing ADAM BOX at IBC 2017 – the newest version of its ADAM automated digital archive migration solution. ADAM BOX is a scalable solution for digitising professional video tapes in production, post-production or broadcast facilities, designed to suit the requirements of small to mid-range media facilities. Jordi AG Communication’s archiving solution can be seen in action during IBC 2017 on the Rohde & Schwarz booth (7.E25).

Originally designed for large broadcasters, ADAM is now available in a mobile format –ADAM BOX– for small and medium-sized companies, such as regional broadcasters, production or post-production, as well as companies that offer video archive digitising as a service for short-term projects. ADAMhas been designed to migrate large quantities of broadcast-quality video tapes to a digital archive, autonomously and cost-effectively. The entire process is fully-automated, from the point of inserting the tape through to the final digitised product. The system uses standard software modules together with an industry-standard robot, ensuring reliable, high quality yet cost-effective digitisation.

ADAM BOX delivers proven results, with many major European broadcasters having successfully used ADAM for a number of years. These include SRG (Switzerland) since 2006, WDR mediagroup (Germany) since 2011, BR since 2015, plus MDR and SWR since 2016. As of today, ADAM has enabled broadcasters to digitise up to 700,000 hours of video assets.
