Two Thumbs Up for Deep Freeze!

Deep Freeze is the best way for TV studios and TV production companies to reduce interruptions to their broadcasting and media production process due to computer system downtime.

In fact, Deep Freeze will even remove the need for mobile IT support, such as for news van computers.

Customized Configuration

  • Configuration Administrator makes setting up for your unique broadcasting environment a simple matter.
  • Specify multiple passwords, select drives to be Frozen and create ThawSpaces to save data.
  • Create workstation tasks, schedule maintenance and set advanced networks.
  • Even create multiple customized installers with different configurations for different broadcasting/editing functions.

Easy Deployment

  • Deploy Deep Freeze system restore software as part of your imaging solution.
  • Or deploy it as a Silent Install natively, either as an .exe or as a .msi by using our Deep Freeze MSI Packager.
  • You can also use the Enterprise Console to deploy.

Central Management

  • Easily deploy, configure, and manage Deep Freeze across your broadcasting environment with Enterprise Console or Core Console, included free of charge.

  • Check out our Integration Page for more information.

Enhanced Security, Compliance and Privacy

  • Complete protection for the master boot record (MBR) from rootkit injections and key loggers makes security and data bulletproof.
  • Customization Code ensures that unauthorized administrators are prevented from accessing or controlling a computer that runs Deep Freeze.
  • Administrators can assign up to 15 passwords or create One-Time passwords that will expire after a single use on the workstation.

Windows Updates

  • Automatically download Windows updates even when machines are Frozen.
  • Cached updates are applied as soon as the machines are Thawed, which means Windows Updates are much faster.
  • Forego setting maintenance window completion times and detect when updates are complete and automatically return the computer back to a Frozen state.

Retain Critical Application Data Across Reboots

  • Redirecting both user and application data to storage space on non-system or network drives.
  • Create virtual storage drives called ThawSpaces.
  • Data retained in a ThawSpace or a Thawed drive is not erased upon system reboot, even if the computer is in a Frozen state.
  • Or try using the complementary Faronics Data Igloo that allows you to redirect data for storage.
