CatDV 12, the latest version of the company's MAM system features native support for Square Box Systems' recently introduced Server 7. The software includes enhanced support for audio files, offering 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.
Square Box will show a new version of its Adobe Premiere Panel, designed for Adobe Creative Cloud users. The original Adobe Premiere Panel enables any CatDV user to log in and search the CatDV database, and also browse production groups and catalogs, from within Adobe Premiere. The new Advanced version offers enhancements, including keyboard navigation, quick previews, and a robust user interface that presents media, a player, and metadata all within the same panel. Other new tools include a frame-accurate player, the ability to update metadata (for example, to kick off a restore from an archive), and the capability to handle more metadata fields when exporting content to Premiere.
The CatDV Enterprise Server 7.2 will be shown including a live logger, frame-accurate video playback, dynamic sub-clip trimming and download, and sharing of groups of clips. In addition, CatDV's Web 2.2 client has derived values and coloured metadata highlighting — for review, online or archived status. A range of additional organization tools are also provided, such as creation and renaming of catalogues, moving assets, and new drag-and-drop capabilities. Further, a new Professional Web Client offers a source and record rough-cut editor and full-screen user interface reflecting installed options with Server 7.2.
Worker 7 is shown with support for Linux, Windows and Mac environments. This is described as an option for large-scale enterprise users that need to manage huge volumes of assets in virtualized or cloud environments. Redesigned to run as a service for enterprise-scale deployments, Worker 7 can be monitored remotely, and it has a new GUI for workflow design and configuration. Also on display will be several new plugins for Worker 7, including a file path cleaner, archivers for S3, Azure, and Black Pearl, and a new analyzer for PDF, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files.
