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.

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.
