StorageDNA Showcases Enhanced LTO LTFS Archiving and Management for 4K, HD Workflows

IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 4, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StorageDNA, Inc., a leader in intelligent nearline and archiving workflow solutions for media professionals, will feature the latest version of its innovative archive engine for LTO LTFS, DNA Evolution™, at IBC2014, taking place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands on September 11 – 16, 2014. The company will demonstrate DNA Evolution 3.5 and preview its accelerated archive workflows and enhanced content management for 4K and HD pipelines in stand 7.B42. StorageDNA customers, Gorilla Group and Multi Screen Media Pvt. Ltd. (Channels: Sony Entertainment TV) benefit from DNA Evolution's conform and archive asset management tools by creating faster and more cost-effective file-based pipelines.

"With DNA Evolution, rather than restore all of the data for a job, we can use an AAF or EDL to do a selective restore for the conform directly from LTO tape," said Rhodri James, technology director for Gorilla Group. "This saves a huge amount of space on our core shared storage systems, it saves time by making the conform process faster, and ultimately saves us money."

Powerful search and tagging via DNA Evolution's built-in Archive Asset Manager and automated conforms, are features engineered to provide quicker and more reliable 4K and HD media workflows. To streamline file-based environments, DNA Evolution offers unparalleled open access to content and delivers the highest possible archive-restore performance. DNA Evolution is the only software using an open format to store all metadata (XML) and data (LTFS), and with the multi-step verification process, long-term protection and integrity of media is ensured.

"DNA Evolution creates real efficiencies in our file-based workflow. With the system, we can quickly and easily archive all of our shows, promos, fillers, and AV material. It used to take days for end users to find content, but the easy-to-use web-based search interface allows them to find content in just seconds," said Sujay Hanje, AVP, post production, Multi Screen Media.

Designed to accelerate creative workflows, key features of DNA Evolution include:

  • Fully-integrated Archive Asset Manager: Native clip support for over 180 formats, an HTML-5 player for low-resolution previews, timeline notes, and Smart Search which provides powerful global metadata search for quickly and accurately locating content to repurpose and monetize.
  • Smart Conform: A unique LTO conform engine reduces storage costs and streamlines time-consuming conform processes.
  • Sharing and Collaboration: With its easy-to-use browser-based interface, local and remote users can easily search, find, review, and collaborate for an efficient approvals workflow.
  • Storage Management (technology preview): Manage online storage utilization with simplified movement to and from LTO LTFS.

"StorageDNA is proud to provide real world archiving and archive asset management features for today's most demanding file-based workflows," said tC Chakravarty, CEO and president, StorageDNA. "We continue to innovate so users can derive the highest possible value from content in archives they've built using our solutions."
