Media Asset Management Systems
DNA Evolution™ is an intelligent LTO LTFS workflow solution with an open XML-based integration interface that allows it to be easily integrated with third-party media asset management (MAM) solutions such as, Avid® Interplay and CatDV®. The workflow solution is engineered for maximum performance with an archive accelerator; direct connect deployment, and built-in data movers for the fastest archives and restores.
Avid Interplay Archive & Restore
“The affordable support, tight integration and performance make this the obvious choice for any Interplay deployment.”
– Mike Halbrook, President, TM Television
DNA Evolution is the simplest and most cost-effective archive solution for Avid Interplay. Other solutions are based on an older Avid Interplay architecture and require a second archive database and transfer manager. It is a well-integrated archive option for your Avid Interplay environment and allows you to archive and restore directly from Avid Interplay Access and Avid® Media Composer®. DNA Evolution also offers a high-performance data path between Avid® ISIS® storage and LTO tape media.
The DNA Evolution integration with Avid Interplay gives you the most flexible archive and restore options. It allows for any Avid Interplay folder and its sub-folders to be watched; any new elements are monitored, and only incremental media files are archived. This enables multiple archive workflows such as: create an archive, drop a folder in Interplay, monitor an existing project, monitor an ingest folder, and monitor a send-to-playback folder.
DNA Evolution integrates via Avid Interplay Web Services eliminating complex and costly setups.
CatDV: Archive and Restore
"As an integrator who's made it my focus to help mid-sized producers deliver at enterprise levels, I appreciate solutions that can handle the pace of modern post production. DNA Evolution combines the speed of a direct-attached LTO system, Web-based administration, and the compatibility of LTFS to provide a fast, reliable archive, and retrieval solution for CatDV integrations."
– Bryson Jones, Hi-Def Cowboy
DNA Evolution provides one of the fastest and most tightly integrated ways to easily archive and restore CatDV assets. The LTO and LTFS-based archive and nearline solution enables a direct-connect infrastructure for archiving and restore speeds that are four times faster than network-based solutions, at over 1.2 Gb/sec.
The workflow solution allows you to manage and monitor via the native CatDV interface so you can archive and restore without leaving the CatDV interface. In addition, DNA Evolution provides you with reports per file status such as: Tape ID, checksum, and results back into CatDV. This allows you to perform a search within CatDV and know the exact tape where your media is located. With DNA Evolution, you can manage media natively using CatDV and save on storage costs.
