SeaChange Rolls Out New Open MediaClient Systems to Bring Unprecedented Advantages to Broadcast Television

New Architecture Enables Edit-in-Place, Play-in-Place Workflow

MAYNARD, Mass. (Sept. 1, 2004) – SeaChange International (Nasdaq: SEAC) today introduced the SeaChange MediaClient™ family of broadcast I/O subsystems, which embrace the Common Internet File System (CIFS) to enable television operators to store, package and distribute video more flexibly and cost-effectively than ever before. The first products in the MediaClient family are MPEG-2/DV-based video codecs designed to support recording, playout and workflow throughout the television enterprise regardless of video image format, file type or compression scheme.

“Support for multiple compression standards and file types is a necessity for today’s television enterprise,” said John Pittas, vice president, broadcast systems, SeaChange. “Coupled with the use of a centralized, high-performance content server and remote client workstations, CIFS will allow multiple editors and post-production suites to collaborate with each other through parallel access to all the stored media, thereby enabling parallel workflow in the various phases of today’s television production and distribution chain. The ability to record, edit-in-place and play-in-place is now a reality with our newest storage and I/O product introductions.”
