As a software front-end to Spectra's BlackPearl, an object storage platform that moves content seamlessly and economically into disk, tape and Cloud, Spectra RioBroker offloads the data transfer job from the application to the Spectra RioBroker system. This brings greater performance, parallelism, scalability, ease of implementation and consistency to the entire platform. Spectra RioBroker also simplifies the integration process to popular asset management software applications by providing Partial File Recall and File Transfer Protocol (FTP) capabilities. Spectra's RioBroker software is available now.
Spectra RioBroker benefits include the following:
The BlackPearl ecosystem grew with new certified clients, including Imagine Communications' Nexio Motion and Tiger Technology's Tiger Bridge. Additional integrations are completed for axle ai, GLOOKAST and Marquis Postflux for Adobe Premiere.
