Integrations with ngenea data acceleration platform featuring Perifery, Wasabi, 7fivefive, Nara, Grass Valley, and Tuxera simplify AI in Media Workflows


pixitmedia, a Kalray company (Euronext Growth Paris: ALKAL) and a global leader in software-defined storage, data management, and orchestration solutions for the media and entertainment industry, will present a series of demonstrations with its technology partners at NAB 2024 in booth SU4100.


ngenea, the leading data acceleration platform enables media and entertainment professionals to streamline global workflows. Levering its rich media toolkit, seamlessly integrates with other technologies to simplify complex environments and extract value from data. Adding AI innovations to their media workflows is high on the agenda of media organizations, therefore, Kalray has collaborated with select AI innovators to build end-to-end AI media workflow solutions.


At NAB, Kalray will highlight the integration capabilities of ngenea with strategic AI and cloud media technologies by Perifery, Wasabi, 7fivefive, FilmLight, Grass Valley, and Tuxera. These joint solutions address the diverse needs of AI and cloud media workflows, so customers can unlock new levels of efficiency and agility by revolutionizing their storage, software, data orchestration, and content management.


Perifery AI + ngenea
ngenea is now integrated with Perifery’s AI+ content management application, redefining content retrieval and helping users intuitively search for historical content across locations, types, and collections. The integrated solution offers descriptive search capabilities by classifying content based on objects, faces, textures, and colors. As such, novel AI applications benefit from streamlined content retrieval and search granularity. The solution also eliminates the need for extensive manual metadata tagging, simplifying global content management.


Wasabi + ngenea

Wasabi’s cloud storage now incorporates the ngenea data orchestration platform, combining Wasabi’s scalability and cost-effectiveness with ngenea’s advanced data capabilities. The joint solution enables users to orchestrate data between global sites using Wasabi’s global network as a backbone and minimize data duplication, which reduces operational costs.


7fivefive Lens + ngenea

ngenea is now integrated with Lens, 7fivefive’s management platform for optimizing remote editing workflows. This integration enables organizations to manage on-prem, cloud and hybrid environments in a single interface. Lens users benefit from ngenea’s guaranteed performance in AWS and its unique data orchestration capabilities. The combined solution ensures a simplified cloud experience and rapid deployment of resources in the cloud. Editors can handle spikes in demand during live event broadcasting by dynamically scaling resources.


Nara + ngenea

Nara, FilmLight’s new browser-based solution for searching, viewing, and transferring raw camera footage, incorporates ngenea. Together, Nara and ngenea are helping creatives improve their project efficiency by reducing the storage and time required for transmitting and accessing dailies and rushes content across facilities.


Grass Valley AMPP + ngenea
ngenea’s integration with Grass Valley’s AMPP SaaS Platform offers opportunities for improved TCO for media organizations. This collaboration will optimize ingest and playout workloads for broadcasters worldwide, ensuring scalable data storage and orchestration on a global scale. As a unified storage platform that adapts to infrastructure, specific production requirements, and workflows, AMPP + ngenea enables users to efficiently manage and utilize their media assets across distributed environments with SaaS flexibility.


ngenea powered by Tuxera
Kalray’s pixitmedia is also partnering with Tuxera, a software company specializing in file systems and storage management solutions. The SMB server Fusion File Share by Tuxera is now integrated into the ngenea data acceleration platform, adding seamless compatibility and performance across different devices and platforms. Tuxera enhances ngenea’s data integrity protection and improves storage performance and data transfers.


“ngenea was designed to seamlessly integrate with technologies that our customers use regularly for their media workflows. We are excited to see how these new partnerships turn ngenea into a catalyst to enable advanced AI solutions,” commented Eric Baissus, CEO of Kalray. “Our complementary strengths help craft solutions that empower our customers and address their challenges.”
