Original Team that Created SAMMA to Offer Continued Support and Introduce Cutting Edge Access Technology
AGOURA HILLS, July 14, 2016 – GrayMeta, a provider of metadata and digital asset management solutions to the world’s leading media companies and the only authorized provider of SAMMA support for hardware and software, today announced it would once again provide world-class SAMMA support and predictable pricing following Oracle’s discontinuation.
SAMMA support under GrayMeta will be led by Chi Long Tsang, Mark Gray, Josef Marc and Bob Berger – the original creators of the groundbreaking, Emmy award winning preservation technology. GrayMeta’s SAMMA support will be greatly enhanced by the dedicated focus of a media technology company passionate to see its clients succeed.
“As the creators of SAMMA, we know it better than anyone in the world and take enormous pride in providing our customers the world-class service that enables them to succeed in their mission to preserve their highly valuable content,” said Mark Gray, president of Gray Meta. “We are thrilled at the opportunity to once again offer our customers service that exceeds their expectations, and do so at price points that offer real value.”
SAMMA was inspired to solve a vital need of the archival community: preservation. The pioneering team behind it has since partnered with some of the world’s leading technologists to solve another vital need: access.
As part of the transition, GrayMeta will offer complimentary introductory access to MetaFarm, an automated metadata mining platform that provides search and navigation of all an organization’s files.
MetaFarm offers an unprecedented and intuitive way to access an organization’s vast digitized archives, with filenames no longer being the only insight into content. Metadata extraction like Media Info, Image Recognition and speech-to-text allow for easy, never before available search of the content material itself, and more capabilities are added every day.
GrayMeta is a breakthrough big data company that powers automated metadata collection and represents a new way of thinking about extracting metadata across the enterprise. GrayMeta’s innovative metadata solutions, powered by MetaFarm, offer the freedom to extract, store, update and add intelligence to metadata—to be more searchable across more applications, turning your information into valuable data.
