​CatDV Archive to Cloud at IBC

Square Box Systems is showcasing CatDV Archive to Cloud at IBC, a new capability enabling users to archive their assets to cloud-based services directly from CatDV.

CatDV Archive to Cloud enables the archival of media assets, and associated metadata, to popular cloud services directly from CatDV. At IBC the solution will be shown working with Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), the online file storage web service offered by Amazon Web Services.

New from the company at IBC is an Advanced Panel 2.1 for Adobe Premier Pro CC, supporting mixed Windows/Mac editorial environments, and full round-trip metadata; plus CatDV Web 2.1, a major update to the company’s popular web client, featuring intuitive, browser-based tools for non-technical users. Also on show will be CatDV Advanced Panels for Adobe Anywhere, adding CatDV media management power to Adobe Anywhere real-time collaborative platform.

For non-technical MAM users, such as producers, marketeers and company executives, the firm's web 2.1 delivers a refreshed browser interface with new tools for custom skins, improved touch-screen interactivity on PDAs, tools for clip collections, filters, timed/expiring web links and approval workflows, plus flexible licensing options.

Square Box Systems has also added an array of new functions to its workflow workhorse systems – Worker 6.1, Server 7 and Pegasus Server – supporting the deployment of CatDV systems in enterprise-scale MAM operations by large and multi-national organisations.

Along with 64-bit and Yosemite support, new capabilities in CatDV Worker 6.1 include faster batch processing, FFMPEG for transcodes and proxies, and quicker update of CatDV from other systems (DRM, storage systems) with automated XML2 and .CDV file import.

CatDV Server 7 now allows browser-based administration and configuration, and features centralised path mapping, more efficient search tools, and flexible metadata across production groups for added security.

The Pegasus Server adds Oracle and Microsoft SQL support, enables rapid, Google-style searches across millions of assets, and has additional security configurations.

Also on show at IBC will be North Shore Automation’s Akomi distribution MAM, the simple web portal for secure sharing of assets from CatDV systems to wide audiences of non-technical users.
