The CatDV Advanced Panel 2.1 for Adobe users.
Among MAM releases around CatDV from Square Box Systems is the CatDV Advanced Panel 2.1 for Adobe PremierPro CC and new functions to its workflow workhorse systems Worker 6.1, Server 7 and Pegasus.
The CatDV Advanced Premiere Panel 2.1 for Adobe Premiere Pro CC released at IBC, supports workflows for Adobe in mixed Windows/Mac environments. “The addition of true, round-trip metadata allowing metadata to be edited within CatDV and/or Adobe Premiere Pro CC delivers even more power for content producers and Adobe artists to collaborate together as they search, preview, track and manage media assets during editorial,” says developer Square Box.
For non-technical MAM users, such as producers, marketeers and company executives, the Web 2.1 delivers new interface with features including custom skins and operational configurations for individual users, improved touch-screen interactivity on PDAs, new tools for clip collections, filters, timed/expiring web links and approval workflows, plus flexible licensing options.
Square Box Systems has added an array of functions to its workflow workhorse systems to further develop CatDV as an option for large-scale, enterprise MAM users and the efficient management of huge volumes of assets.
CatDV Worker 6.1, the company's new workflow/automation engine, delivers accelerated performance and is easier to deploy. Along with 64-bit and Yosemite support, new capabilities 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 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, plus sophisticated asset usage analytics and reporting.
In response to customer demand to leverage cloud services in their MAM operations, Square Box Systems has taken CatDV Archive To Cloud. This new feature enables the archival of media assets, and associated metadata, to popular cloud services directly from CatDV. CatDV Archive To Cloud will be shown working with Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service), the online file storage web service offered by Amazon Web Services.
