Iron Mountain Entertainment Services (IMES), the leading physical and digital media archiving service for the entertainment industry, today announced that it has won a SATIS trophy for Innovation and Creation for their Smart Vault media asset management platform. The award recognises Smart Vault for its capability in helping organisations of any size to ensure their content is stored securely, together with best-in-class technology ensuring fast and flexible access to all assets.

The annual SATIS Awards – organised by Génération Numérique – celebrate innovations in the audiovisual sector and were presented on 10 November 2022 in Paris at this year’s SATIS exhibition.

IMES’ Smart Vault provides organisations involved in the production of content with a powerful one-stop solution for content management, storage, and archive. It is being used by Canal+ to digitise, preserve, transform and monetize up to 110,000 hours of valuable tape repository delivered to the groups’ specifications and standards while ensuring chain of custody of the physical assets which remain managed, transferred and kept at IMES in France.

Lance Podell, SVP and General Manager for Iron Mountain Entertainment Services said “We are proud to have been awarded the SATIS trophy for Innovation and Creation for our Smart Vault media asset management platform. This is extremely gratifying to win, but even more important to our team is that we won for the benefits and value we have been able to deliver for our clients’ archives through Smart Vault, such as for Canal+. Thank you to SATIS!”
