Square Box Systems Highlights CatDV 12

Square Box Systems’ IBC highlights include CatDV 12, the latest version of the company’s MAM system; and support for CatDV archive in Amazon S3.

Judged a “major step forward” in the evolution of the CatDV product line, CatDV 12 features an updated user experience along with native support for Square Box Systems' recently introduced Server 7.

In addition, CatDV 12 includes enhanced support for audio files including an advanced waveform display, VU meters, and the ability to handle more audio tracks. The system's logging and ingest capabilities have been updated, and CatDV 12 is now able to operate independent of specialized video players. With support for large installations, CatDV features a 64-bit architecture and a playback engine that supports the latest broadcast and camera formats.

Worker 7 for Linux is the latest version of the company's workflow automation solution for CatDV MAM deployments. “Worker 7 for Linux makes CatDV an even more compelling option for large-scale enterprise users who need to manage huge volumes of assets,” says the firm. It includes a new media engine that supports all major video players.

The CatDV Pegasus Server enables “Google-style searches across millions of assets” and includes support for Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases. At IBC, Square Box will highlight its enhanced security, analytics and reporting, plus audit capabilities available in the latest version.

The firm's Enterprise Server 7 server features web-based system administration and 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 fully customized user interface for different users.

At IBC, Square Box Systems will launch CatDV Archive to Cloud in response it says to customer demand for the ability to leverage cloud services in their MAM operations. There will be demonstrationa of the ability to archive media assets and associated metadata to Amazon's S3.
