CatDV’s UI Gets a Makeover

Square Box Systems’ CatDV asset management software benefits from a new web-based user interface and access to features like a “source and record” sequence editor, live logging of video assets, and comprehensive catalog-management tools.

"We developed Web 2.2 in direct response to customers who wanted more robust internet and intranet access to CatDV Server 7's installed options. Web 2.2 Advanced is an all-new experience that mirrors the UI design of our desktop application — with navigation, results, and details all presented on a single page," said Dave Clack, CEO, Square Box Systems. "Web 2.2 Advanced is built on the same HTML5 foundations as our previous-generation Web 2 interface and inherits many of its most popular features, but also offers more advanced functionality for power users."

Web 2.2 has a frame-accurate player and brings views to life with derived values and colored metadata highlighting, making it easier than ever for users to review online or archived content.

Plus, there's a new live logger enabling quick and efficient logging of video assets while they are playing, with customizable keyboard shortcuts and button panel. New catalog-management tools allow users to create, rename, and delete catalogs and drag clips from one catalog to another.
