DigitalGlue Wins Coveted 3,600 sq. ft. Studio Build Out Project with Stack’s Bowers Galleries


Glass-to-Glass Systems Integrator utilizes decades of expertise to build out state-of-the-art facility 

Murrieta, CA – October 18, 2021 – DigitalGlue, trusted systems integrator and enterprise-level storage provider, has completed a 3,600 sq. ft. studio build-out for Stack’s Bowers Galleries Video Production division operating as Griffin Studios. Stack’s Bowers Galleries, established in 1933, is a world renowned, leading rare coin auction house and merchant dealer. They conduct live, internet, and specialized auctions of rare U.S. and world coins, currency, and ancient coins. Their new World Headquarters, in Costa Mesa, CA, includes a production studio, an 8-seat control room, and a large event space that can double as a secondary production studio. The new studio facility, which Stack’s Bowers Galleries entrusted to DigitalGlue to build out, not only showcases their live and online auction events but also provides a studio rental space for multi-media productions and events in Southern California.

As the Swiss Army Knife of the industry, the DigitalGlue team carries decades of experience in studio build-outs, post-production, broadcast, and distribution services. When working closely with Stack’s Bowers Galleries and their team to finalize the design of this project, DigitalGlue was able to bring knowledge from numerous areas of expertise and decades of experience. Brian Kendrella, President of Stack’s Bowers Galleries, believes that “DigitalGlue was an invaluable partner in the creation of our broadcast studio, from design to implementation to post-completion support. An important factor in choosing DigitalGlue was not only their systems integration expertise but the support they could provide as we grew and expanded our studio offerings.”

When finalizing the design of Griffin Studios, DigitalGlue took a commonsense approach; utilizing cutting-edge technology that met Stack’s Bowers Galleries production requirements today while anticipating future needs in a way that is easy to adopt and understand. One of the most notable future-aware installations is the use of a hybrid HD and 4K baseband system rather than an IP solution. Bobby White, Engineer-in-Charge on the project, explains that “when Stack’s Bowers Galleries is ready to move from HD into 4K, this innovative hybrid system will allow them to continue to rely on their existing infrastructure instead of needing to go out, buy, and learn new technologies.” The cherry on top of DigitalGlue’s multifaceted offering is its ability to identify production studio-specific staffing needs. Not only are they designing, implementing, and overseeing the studio-build out, DigitalGlue is able to give the Stack’s Bowers Galleries team experience-backed advice on the type of employees they will need to bring on board to support the success of the in-house and rental facilities long term.

DigitalGlue Builds Disaster Recovery Solution for Major Religious Broadcasting Network


Murrieta, CA – August 18, 2020 – DigitalGlue,
trusted Systems Integrator, has partnered with Trinity Broadcasting Network
(TBN), the world’s largest Christian television broadcast group, to build a
Disaster Recovery system to be located at their WWTO TV station and production
facility in Chicago, IL. The purpose-built Disaster Recovery solution will back
up TBN’s primary play-out and uplink in Tustin, CA, the Network’s headquarters,
for a fraction of the cost, without sacrificing any functionality.

The system will provide four channels of local play-out by utilizing a prior generation Harmonic Channel port/MediaGrid and Electra 9000 Series compression platform for full mirroring of TBN’s uplink channel count in Tustin, CA. Larry Haley, Vice President of Operations and Engineering at Trinity Broadcasting Networks noted that “late last year when we needed to add an HD MPEG-4/AVC channel for our Positiv Movie channel launch, new licenses to our Electra 9000 series platform were no longer available. DigitalGlue worked with Harmonic to provide an attractive upgrade plan to the latest Harmonic Electra-X series platform which allowed them to reconfigure the existing Electra 9000 system to meet our Disaster Recovery needs while staying within the budget.”

The strategic use of repurposed
equipment as part of the overall upgrade/refresh plan extends the life of the
still viable Harmonic products for the Disaster Recovery application while
saving the Broadcasting Network money. In addition to using this playout and compression
equipment, DigitalGlue will install new Satellite Modulators at the Disaster
Recovery site to maximize modular efficiency.

Redundancy is one of the most important elements of a disaster recovery solution. The TAG 22 channel MCM9000 provided the best-compressed stream multiviewer solution for source monitoring. The MCM9000 combined with the planned relocation of the redundant Cerebrum server to Chicago, which provides a system-wide monitor for the Regional TV stations as well as Tustin, will maintain network-wide distributed redundancy.

The final system element of the Disaster
Recovery project was the installation of VideoFlow DVA202 equipment. The
performance-grade DVA202 ensures reliable bi-directional IP distribution of TBN
content to and from Tustin to Chicago over IP, as well as the back-up
distribution of the core Local TBN regional stations uplink over IP to Chicago,
New York, and Phoenix.

This multi-tier approach has allowed
DigitalGlue to create and provide the most efficient Disaster Recovery solution
that is budget-friendly while maximizing functionality and data protection. To

DigitalGlue Makes Enterprise Storage Easy and Affordable with creative.space Version 1.5


Atlanta, GA – February 26, 2020 – DigitalGlue has announced version 1.5 of the creative.space Web App along with a beta release of their Desktop App. Unlike current solutions in the marketplace, creative.space is the world’s first managed storage service designed specifically for creatives, eliminating the need for IT involvement. The intuitive Web App simplifies collaborative storage by providing a streamlined user experience that promotes productivity and creativity, therefore increasing revenue and decreasing expenses for their company. With the release of this new software version, creative post-production teams finally have an enterprise storage solution that adapts to their needs, fits their budget, and does not require specialized knowledge or IT training.

As a Systems Integrator, DigitalGlue has helped media organizations build and support video-centric solutions for over 18 years by combining cutting edge technology with custom software, specializing in taking complex workflows and making them simple. As the industry transitioned from tape to file-based workflows, DigitalGlue worked with customers to evaluate and select the right storage and media asset management solutions for their needs. During this process, they discovered that unrealistically high price points and overly complex, yet underdeveloped, software put existing options out of reach for most video teams.

Out of necessity, a solution was born. Rather than pay upfront for a traditional shared storage server with an annual service level agreement covering reactive support, creative.space bundles hardware, software, and proactive support into a fixed monthly rate based on a 1, 2, 3, or 5-year contract. Unlike purchasing or leasing storage, a creative.space service contract is flexible, allowing customers to adapt to changing needs with modular or complete upgrades. DigitalGlue’s proactive monitoring enables bottlenecks to be identified and addressed before rather than after they interrupt work, saving customers from unexpected delays and even data loss.

creative.space is designed for Creatives to
make storage easy, taking the complex IT-centric tasks and simplifying them
with a streamlined user experience backed by DigitalGlue’s DevOps support team.
The backend development team works with customers to build powerful API
toolsets that eliminate the need for command-line operations. The frontend team
builds user interfaces that are intuitive and practical for customers and tuned
to their workflows. As a common resource for diverse media organizations,
DigitalGlue can spread efficiencies across the entire network of creative.space
nodes. Every feature moves creative.space closer to removing technology as a
bottleneck to creative workflows.

Over the course of two years, DigitalGlue
worked with a select group of Early Adopters to build a storage platform that
is easy to deploy and maintain. The result is an enterprise storage solution
that provides scalable real-time performance with administrative tools that do
not require IT experience to use. Rather than build a proprietary solution from
the ground up, creative.space takes advantage
of the latest advances in enterprise storage hardware and open source software.

By removing the burdens of traditional storage workflows, Early Adopters were able to realize previously unattainable workflow efficiencies, saving hours each day that were repurposed in creative ways to generate more revenue in less time. Contact sales@digitalglue.com today to learn more.
