The Major League Baseball (MLB) Network has selected Ericsson's (www.ericsson.com) HD video processing solution for its live coverage surrounding the 2010 MLB All-Star Game, including the MLB All-Star Red Carpet Show, MLB Tonight All-Star Batting Practice and MLB Tonight All-Star Edition. The solution is intended to allow MLB Network to use less bandwidth and simultaneously improve picture quality.

In other MLB news, Major League Baseball Productions will use technology from Front Porch Digital's (www.fpdigital.com) SAMMA product line to preserve the visual history of America's pastime by migrating professional baseball's video archive from videotape and other analog media to digital storage. As the multi-year project progresses, MLB Productions and sibling MLB Network will rely on an expanded and upgraded Front Porch DIVArchive system to provide content storage management (CSM) for a digital production workflow that includes access to stored archival content.
