Why DNAevolution?

Manage your media, simplify your workflow and save

We deal with vast amounts of camera master data… which takes up a massive amount of space on our nearline storage... DNAevolution enables us to utilize our network storage more cost-effectively. One of the biggest benefits is the ability to quickly archive the high-resolution media and conform directly from the LTO tape–easily restoring content selectively against an edited timeline.
