Media Distributors to Private Label SoleraTec's Digital Asset Management solution as 'Constellation VCM'

San Diego, CA. - April 27, 2009 - SoleraTec, LLC of Escondido, CA, has signed a vertical market OEM partnership agreement with Studio City, CA, based Media Distributors. Media Distributors has a strong presence in the broadcast media, television, and entertainment industries with a deep understanding of the video digital asset management needs of the production, post-production, and broadcast media markets. Media Distributors has private labeled SoleraTec's digital asset management solution as Constellation and will be the exclusive sales partner within these industries for SoleraTec.

Constellation Video Content Manager (VCM) was specifically designed to manage video data as well as track and mange the various metadata attributes within those video files. This is the first video asset management system to leverage next-generation multi-tiered enterprise storage techniques and is the first to include digital fingerprinting. It delivers a highly flexible, scalable, storage and distribution system for a wide range of customers, from large-scale video-rights holders to small production and post-production companies. The system easily conforms to the existing workflow of any organization.

Constellation VCM recognizes and supports data from today's leading video editing solutions, including Final Cut Pro, Avid, ProTools, and others. The software also recognizes other standard video formats, such as mpg, wma, mov, and more. Once the video file assets are ingested and cataloged within the Constellation Information Repository, userconfigurable policies can then migrate and replicate the video assets to secondary, less expensive, storage, immediately generating a greater return on investment of storage resources.

'There is a strong need for more efficient asset management solutions, and we have been working with some of our leading customers to deliver the kind of seamless value that Constellation VCM brings to the production and post-production industry,' said Richard Myerson, president of Media Distributors. 'We can now deliver a massively scalable, intelligent asset management and workflow solution to our core entertainment and media customers that are far superior to any previous solution, at far more attractive price points.'

Understanding the unique workflow requirements of film and television production companies, Constellation VCM can significantly reduce the management requirements for handling digital video assets.

'The entertainment industry requires an extremely thorough understanding of the how the workflow processes take shape and Media Distributors has a long history of providing quality service and support to this market,' stated Mark Armstrong, CEO of SoleraTec, LLC. 'We are proud to be working with such a solid and reputable company as Media Distributors.'
