TOPICS INCLUDE:

Get Connected - When software isn't enough for broadcast remote access In these unprecedented times, it has never been more important to stay connected. But how can you stay connected with your on-premise PCs while the workforce is so distributed? Find out how high performance IP KVM is helping broadcasters gain real-time remote access to critical computers from anywhere in the world.

Rock Solid - Design, Build and Maintain robust KVM solutions from Broadcast Centres On this webinar Adder's KVM experts show how resilient design and install best practices can help maintain a robust KVM system. The session also covers support tools and useful industry tips for broadcast centres who are looking to utilise IP KVM and leverage a single platform for a range of broadcast applications.

The Network Effect - Deploying KVM in broadcast centres with distributed networks While many early IP KVM adopters simply exchanged a switching chassis for an off-shelf network switch, others have taken advantage of the great benefits available if you step back and design a fully functional IP KVM. In this, Adder share what those benefits are and how you can utilise them with ADDERLink INFINITY.

Pulling the Plug - The real reasons people are replacing their legacy KVM with IP Large areas of the broadcast sector are adopting IP across their facilities. Faced with rising costs, shrinking budgets and the drive to do more with less, IP is providing the answers to many broadcast challenges. Discover why organisations are moving away from legacy KVM approaches and how you can do the same.

GB LABS - UNIFY HUB

ONE THING IS CERTAIN - REMOTE WORKING IS HERE TO STAY

As short term fixes need to become longer terms plans, many people are finding efficient workflows are much harder and more difficult in the new landscape. Adding historic issues of multi-format data over spread out over numerous locations, into the mix also escalates the  problem.

Introducing GB Labs Unify Hub, which unifies the many worlds of storage – on-prem, cloud and remote, in a simplified and logical way, giving you ultimate flexibility.

UnifyHub product gblabs

A platform designed to meet all the challenges of today’s (media) production environment, it applies intelligence to combine on premise and cloud storage, empowering remote production while maintaining data integrity and security. It also provides a ‘unified’ approach to content and metadata - wherever your material is physically stored – allowing the content needed to appear as a single, secure and coherent source, ideal for high-efficiency, collaborative and remote working.

UNIFY HUB SIMPLIFIES THE DIFFICULTY OF MANAGING MULTIPLE USERS TO/FROM MULTIPLE CLOUD SERVICES IN ONE ORGANISATION.

It’s a game-changer when it comes to the workflow behaviour that is not going away anytime soon. The cloud and/or on-prem experience has been completely redesigned – for remote or onsite users. And those users will just get what they want, when they want it, with minimal delay and expense.

SIMPLIFY, REVOLUTIONISE AND ULTIMATELY ‘UNIFY’ ALL ASPECTS OF MEDIA

Unify Hub is an appliance not only designed for the turmoil of today’s COVID-workflow, but it’s also a mind-shift of what and how storage actually is and means. Unique, independent, and compatible with all brands of storage – cloud and on-prem – there is no other product on the market that makes such an immediate and impactful difference to media professionals.

Unify Hub works with GB Labs storage, other manufacturer storage, cloud storage and cloud computer services – all packaged in a 1RU interface.

Unify Hub is available as a turnkey appliance that’s going to simplify, revolutionise and ultimately ‘unify’ all aspects of media. Available immediately, aggressively priced, with full support and maintenance options, Unify Hub is the missing link to your data workflow.

Unify Hub leverages your current infrastructure, as well as your future plans and can work in conjunction with your current on-prem storage to give remote workers a seamless in-office experience.

Unify Hub can handle remote access to the content without having to move any content from the original storage. A massive bonus - enabling remote users to continue to work securely with this original content.
