Digitizing traditional media provides extensive possibilities for storing, indexing, referencing, and distributing content. Increasingly, owners of analog media such as video and audiotapes and disks are seeking new ways to make the most of their content. Whether you’re looking to generate additional revenue by web-enabling your media for online distribution, or want to enhance communication and knowledge sharing by extending your analog content for online use, sio.co can help get you there.
As an adjunct to our restoration services, sio.co has developed a range of video and audio encoding processes encompassing all major formats at compression ratios from high-end broadcast quality to broadband and dialup formats. Our DMS staff includes experienced “veterans” in this field.
When compressing video, it is essential to start with the highest quality source available. By virtue of our proprietary restoration techniques, sio.co is able to bring any video or film format as close to its original state as possible before employing high-end hardware pre-processing, then capturing uncompressed to the digital domain. Once digitized, our parallel batch-encoding process allows multiple bit rates and multiple formats to be rendered simultaneously, which means that the media can be processed very quickly. A visual QC stage ensures consistent quality of the finished digital files.
High-end analog to digital conversions
High quality component video signal routing
Multiplexed A/V equipment for parallel capturing and encoding
MPEG2, MPEG1, RealMedia, Windows Media, and QuickTime
Ability to handle even the most obscure tape or disc formats
Optical and tape back-up systems
Visual Quality Control
Digital audio is now a part of everyday life, from the introduction of the Compact Disc in the mid-eighties and the emergence of MP3 in the nineties, to internet radio stations, and now internet jukeboxes. The flexibility afforded by digitized audio is compelling. Encoding an audio archive converts a room full of bulky (and perishable!) tapes, disks, wires and cylinders into a manageable digital audio system which can easily be indexed and referenced.

On Demand Growth
Management provisioning and storage is performed easily and automatically while connecting all public and private storage units together, allowing them to act as a single unit. Growing is as simple as adding expansion units instead of expensive additional server hardware.
The Power of Public and Private Clouds Combined
Scale up to 1440TB and concatenate to existing storage pools and scale your archive environment to hundreds of petabytes with little effort.

Built for the Generalist
Our platform was built with the IT generalist in mind as an easy solution for rapidly scaling enterprise storage needs with the click of a mouse. Three clicks allows for provisioning of a iSCSI storage volume or a NFS network share. Two clicks allows users to assign storage to a host. Because today’s IT environment requires rapid and quick moves, we’ve built our system to work along with the speed of business.
Storage for the Masses
Like their larger counterparts small and medium businesses are finding the need to scale and store data like never before. Our enterprise software includes thin-provisioning and user interface management that is simplified enough for a Johnny-come-lately to run load testing and thin-provisioning in a flash.
The ease of rapidly deploying VSAs en masse provides even the most nascent IT manager the power to scale in quick succession.
[tab label=”Total Backup Control”]
The increase demand of high performance archiving applications requires more than a run-of-the-mill software solution. With scalability of 810TB per system in just 26U of total rack space, our high efficiency platform is cost effective for nearly any application and allows for simple and easy scaled usage as your storage needs grow.
