​Square Box Debut New CatDV Versions

Square Box Systems is bowing CatDV 12, a new version of the company’s media asset management system at the 2016 NAB show. It is also introducing Worker 7, the latest update of the company’s workflow automation solution for CatDV MAM deployments.

CatDV 12 features an updated user experience along with native support for Square Box Systems' recent Server 7. In addition, the system's logging and ingest capabilities have been updated.

“Now supporting Linux environments, Worker 7 makes CatDV an even more compelling option for large-scale enterprise users who need to manage huge volumes of assets,” explained the company. “Worker 7 includes many new functions designed to make workflow automation and integration more powerful and easier to deploy.

The CatDV Pegasus Server enables Google-style searches across millions of assets and includes support for Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases. At the 2016 NAB show, Square Box is highlighting the enhanced security, flexibility, sophisticated asset usage analytics and reporting, plus audit capabilities now available in the latest version of the Pegasus server.

The firm's Enterprise Server 7 server now features Web-based system administration, a REST administration API as well as many core improvements including support for larger customer deployments, centralized path mapping, more efficient search tools, and a customized user interface for different users.

Square Box Systems will further launch CatDV Archive to Cloud in response to customer demand for the ability to leverage cloud services in their MAM operations. At the Show, the company will demonstrate CatDV Archive to Cloud's ability to archive media assets and associated metadata to Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3), the online file storage Web service offered by Amazon Web Services.
