Migrate your large video tape library to digital, on premise 
or at our new Los Angeles facility!

Our package has everything needed to migrate your library to digital files including ALTO Archive Storage, Loki Media DVOs, & CURIO ANYWHERE to extract the metadata 
and catalog it all in a searchable library.

The FLYPACK is the most efficient, automated, and cost effective way to migrate large videotape libraries to digital files at scale.

Concurrently encode 8 Streams of any source to your choice of formats, up convert to HD, international standards, as well as noise reduction.

Put as many FLYPACKs you need, where your videotapes are, or we can arrange to have them shipped to one of our secure, migration locations.

Each FLYPACK is self contained and uses SAMMA, the application used by major broadcasters, large studios and the Library of Congress.

We bring the Emmy-Award winning SAMMA solution consists of state-of-the-art robotics software allowing general operators to automatically or semi-automatically migrate content from videotape to digital form.

Deployed by major archivists and tape preservationists all over the world including the Library of Congress and Getty Images, SAMMA helps clients throughout the museum, institutional, national archive, service bureau, government, and media & entertainment sectors with a highly efficientconfigurable and cost-effective means for controlling videotape migration queues & digitizing content.
