HTV found exactly the successfull solution to the management of the broadcasting activities, selecting tapeless solutions provided by ETERE. Now HTV chooses to expand highly this system,specifically the LTO Petasite library migrates to LTO5 and upgrades to 500 slots to facilitate the accommodation of the huge quantity of video files that HTV produced during the last years. It’s worth mentioning that also the number of LTO drivers managed by the system has got increased to 3 by adding a new Etere Data Pump. In order to improve the system performance, a new disk archive has been added based on Harmonic MediaGrid.
