Square Box Systems announced the launch of CatDV Archive to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) Cloud, enabling the archiving of CatDV-managed media assets and associated metadata in S3, the cloud-based file-storage service offered by Amazon Web Services.
Square Box Systems claims that its CatDV helps teams organize, communicate and collaborate effectively in organizations that create or manage a large volume of digital media. These tools support sophisticated media workflows, from single-user installations to large dispersed teams in global operations.
With CatDV Archive to S3 Cloud providing a direct link to S3 from CatDV’s Web and desktop user interfaces, users can copy content directly to Amazon S3 object storage or archive files to clear space on their local storage drives — all the while preserving the assets’ metadata and tagging. They can view the status of the service and the job queue at any time during a CatDV Archive to S3 Cloud operation.
“Ideal for production, postproduction, and repurposing of finished media assets, CatDV is well-suited to content creators in traditional broadcast and production operations, as well as many other types of businesses,” said Dave Clack, CEO of Square Box Systems. “With CatDV Archive to S3 Cloud, we’ve given our customers even greater workflow flexibility and the added confidence that their valuable assets are protected — with the increasing cost savings and efficiencies enabled by the cloud.”
