Cleversafe and Brevity Solve Today’s Video Requirements for the Media and Entertainment Industry with Combined Video Transport, Transcoding and Object-Storage Technologies
CHICAGO, March 28, 2013 – Today’s increasing requirements for timely video asset availability are challenging studios and broadcasters’ video production, post-production, and distribution. Traditionally the process of transporting and transcoding video have been done in sequential steps. Maintaining video assets in active archives has become costly, as both the size and volume of video have increased. Cleversafe, Inc., the solution for limitless data storage, and Brevity Ventures, Inc., the next-generation enterprise solution for the transporting and transcoding of video, have solved the challenges of transporting, transcoding, storing, and distributing video by creating a much more efficient workflow, decreasing file size and transport time and ensuring a more reliable repository.
Cleversafe and Brevity will showcase their combined capabilities at the 2013 NAB Show held April 8 – 11, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The companies will demonstrate how Cleversafe’s patented object-based dispersed storage technology combined with Brevity’s accelerated multi-point transport and transcode protocols, delivers unparalleled cost-benefits and workflow efficiencies for media and entertainment (M&E) customers.

The increasing size of large video files has forced the M&E industry to use creative but time-consuming and costly workarounds to produce, distribute and store digital media assets, causing loss of revenue and time. New big data obstacles require a solution that goes beyond the reach of traditional storage and content distribution network providers.
“The greatest, most costly, challenges facing media and entertainment customers is the extended delay in transcoding and transporting media files to multiple and often disparate locations, while also reliably and efficiently storing those assets,” said Russ Kennedy, Vice President of Product Strategy, Marketing and Customer Solutions, for Cleversafe, Inc. “Our partnership with Brevity delivers a single, innovative and integrated solution that can simultaneously transport and transcode files to multiple locations and store these large video stores with reliability and agility, at a fraction of the cost.”
Cleversafe’s object-based storage solution leverages information dispersal algorithms coupled with encryption to expand, virtualize, transform, slice and disperse data across a network of storage nodes in order to deliver limitless scale and availability. This innovative approach to ingesting and storing massive amounts of content data provides an inherent level of security with no single point of failure, and allows customers to have continuous availability to their data.
Brevity’s technology transforms time-consuming and costly workarounds that plague the M&E industry with a breakthrough solution designed to accelerate the transport of digital video files, while simultaneously transcoding “on the edge.” Brevity also integrates web-based collaboration and workflow automation tools that provide an unrivaled user experience for managing and distributing digital media assets.
“Brevity’s mission is to redefine media production and distribution by delivering new efficiencies and creating increased opportunities for media & entertainment customers,” said Mike Jackman, Chief Business Development Officer for Brevity. “Our partnership with Cleversafe will further our efforts to address bottlenecks and change the industry in a meaningful way by simplifying workflows, optimizing high-end production and distribution, speeding up simultaneous transport and transcoding functions, and enhancing project collaboration in a limitless way.”
