Imagine Products to Demonstrate PreRoll Post at NAB 2016

PreRoll Post is an application that makes LTO tape archiving easier and more efficient by automating the indexing of camera originals — complete with thumb nails, proxies and metadata.

Imagine Products will show its PreRoll Post software at NAB, an application for archiving that not only backs up camera originals, but copies full-resolution media to LTO tapes, local disk or optical disc.

Macintosh or Windows users can use PreRoll Post to create nonproprietary backups of any file or folder using the open-source Linear Tape File System (LTFS). The archiving application streamlines the process of placing any file type onto an LTO-7, LTO-6 or LTO-5 tape, or onto Sony's Optical Disc Archive (ODA).

The software takes advantage of the LTFS, which is supported by many tape drive manufacturers. LTFS mounts a tape as a volume (hard disk) within OS X. This makes it possible to write and read from the tape as if it were a disk without proprietary software or formatting.

PreRoll Post is hardware-independent, enabling use with any LTFS-compliant tape drive or Sony ODA. Both the Mac and Windows version of Preroll Post is priced at $499.

"Hard drives are great for delivering files to your client, but they shouldn't be trusted as a long-term archiving solution,” said Michelle Maddox, marketing director at Imagine Products. “PreRoll Post makes using LTO tape drives or the Sony ODA easy and affordable."

Imagine Products develops video workflow solutions that help film and media professionals back up, view, share, transcode and archive their digital-video assets. These specialized workflow applications are designed for broadcasters, postproduction facilities and others whose businesses rely on digital video.
