(Emeryville, CA--September 21, 2015) Advanced Systems Group (ASG), a leading video, data, audio and film integration firm, will present a “Lunch & Learn” program on Oct. 1, 2015, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Harmonic’s headquarters in San Jose. The presentation will show how Harmonic’s MediaGrid shared storage solution and Electra X advanced media processor work within broadcast and editing environments. Lunch will be provided.

The demonstration will simulate a real-world editing environment, with multiple editors using multiple editing platforms while simultaneously sharing assets. “Whether your editing environment is based around Mac or Windows-based equipment, MediaGrid is a powerful and practical shared storage solution,” said Dave Van Hoy, ASG president. “This Lunch & Learn program is a great opportunity to see how Harmonic’s products improve file-based workflows in a real-world demonstration.”

Powered by the Harmonic PURE Compression Engine, the cost-effective Electra X appliance delivers superior video quality at low bitrates for broadcast and OTT multi-screen delivery. It features real-time encoding of SD, HD, and UHD media, integrated high-quality branding and graphics, and reliable transport stream playout for increased operational flexibility.

Simple to deploy, manage, and scale, MediaGrid storage accelerates file-based workflows and provides the ability to manage the entire asset lifecycle. It reduces the cost of nearline media storage, making it practical to deploy multi-petabyte digital media libraries and archives for video-on-demand and other applications.

The ASG Lunch & Learn is free, but pre-registration is required. For online registration and more information, please visit
