Square Box Systems’ CatDV Adds AI, Cloud
Square Box' CatDV MAM with new Adobe integrations.
Heralding its NAB presence Dave Clack, CEO at Square Box Systems says "Since we launched CatDV 15 years ago, we've stayed on the cutting edge of MAM innovation through a concentrated product development effort based on customer input and the evolving media industry. At the 2018 NAB Show, we're looking forward to showing prospects, partners, and customers powerful new enhancements for CatDV that empower small-, medium-, and large-scale enterprises to repurpose and monetize millions of assets with ease and efficiency."
A range of cloud and hybrid deployment options are supported, including the management and movement of content for creatives “who prefer to focus on making compelling content rather than worrying about NAS, SAN, cloud, or object storage tiers.”
CatDV now includes the ability to deploy server plugin components on separate servers. Examples include data movers for archive plugins such as Black Pearl, S3, Azure, and B2.
New integrations with file acceleration tools from Aspera are offered along with extended support for AWS S3 archive. CatDV has also built a new AWS deployment template with proxy playback from S3. There is also support for Backblaze B2 archive.
There are new integrations with Adobe Creative Cloud and Avid Media Composer with an updated and “more powerful” Advanced Adobe panel that can also operate in Premiere Pro, After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. For sports deployments, CatDV now includes button-based logging and sports-focused search options.
