Case studies

  • New: Asian Film Archive Case Study

    The Asian Film Archive (AFA), based in Singapore, was founded in 2005 as a cultural heritage organisation, designed to capture, preserve, and make accessible, the rich and diverse film collection of the region. The archive had far outgrown the cumbersome, in-house catalogue system, which was time-consuming to use. The AFA sought a proven, fully-featured asset management system tuned to the needs of audio visual archives, which would be scalable, with streamlined workflows for physical and digital assets, yet cost effective, simple to implement, and easy to use. 

  • New: Astro Case Study

    Astro, the leading satellite broadcaster for Southeast Asia has implemented the first phase of a comprehensive file-based workflow platform from TMD. From its two broadcast centres in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Astro delivers around 180 SD and HD channels, with related online and catch-up services.

  • RTE FAST Case Study

    The fundamental business case for moving to a modern, file-based architecture is common to all broadcasters. It enables the move to full HD production and playout, together with serving multiple platforms; it eases the integration of digital islands; it reduces the cost of tape administration; and it addresses the very real difficulties in continuing to source and maintain VTRs and related equipment to access the archive.

  • National Film & Sound Archive of Australia Case Study
