​StorExcel Ships AXZiS LIGHT DAM and Storage

StorExcel has introduced StorExcel AXZiS Light, a bundled storage and digital asset management solution that works with Adobe Creative Suite.

Built on Evolphin Zoom digital media asset management software and the XenData SX Series archive server, StorExcel's AXZiS Light is marketed as an entry-level solution that enables small groups to produce, edit, and publish content more efficiently using tools within Adobe Creative Suite (CS).

Users can link to and search across all assets — video, audio, print, still images, and graphics — from within any application. The interface of Evolphin's Zoom software enables users to track each iteration of digital content and all of its associated metadata. Other search options, thumbnails, high-resolution previews, and the software platform itself drastically reduce the time spent locating and managing digital assets.

The product tracks the progress, approvals, and governance of the content as it goes through the digital media supply chain, including the integrated disk and LTFS archive tiers. In addition to supporting work across the entire creative environment, the StorExcel solution simplifies and automates versioning to ensure that users work with the up-to-date version of content rather than many differently named versions of the same file.

“By performing de-duplication tasks in the background, Zoom further reduces the cost and complexity of maintaining efficient, readily accessible storage,” said Lance Hukill, company president. “Designed for media workflows, the XenData SX Series archive server provides a highly scalable LTO digital and media asset archive. As a result, AXZiS LIGHT scales smoothly to support growth up to an enterprise-scale platform. Groups and organisations working with the solution can expand with confidence, knowing that the underlying software and storage infrastructure will continue to meet their capacity and performance requirements.”
