Front Porch Buys Samma Systems

LOUISVILLE, Colo. -- Front Porch Digital, the global leader in content storage management (CSM) for the broadcast, media, and entertainment industries, today announced that it has acquired New York-based SAMMA Systems Inc., the global leader in the migration and preservation of videotape to digital files.

"While Front Porch Digital has offered our current broadcast customers near-line and online storage for many years, the largest collection of media in the world today is still stored on videotape," said Mike Knaisch, president and chief executive officer of Front Porch Digital. "Our acquisition of SAMMA is strategically planned to offer broadcasters, archiving facilities, and other content owners a new system uniquely capable of accessing all that stored content and of making it available in a cost-effective way."
