Square Box Systems and Scality Team Up to Deliver Integration of CatDV With Scality RING MAM Storage System
Square Box Systems and Scality today announced an integration of Square Box Systems’ industry-leading CatDV media asset management (MAM) system with the Scality RING scale-out file and object storage system. The integration creates a seamless archive-and-restore process for CatDV users looking to leverage Scality’s specialized MAM storage solution.
“Storage is at the heart of any successful MAM strategy. That’s why we’re committed to integrating CatDV with the industry’s state-of-the-art storage and archiving solutions,” said Dave Clack, CEO, Square Box Systems. “Scality RING is designed from the ground up to streamline MAM storage, which makes it a great complement to CatDV’s award-winning MAM capabilities. The combination of CatDV and Scality RING gives our customers a fail-safe and clear archive-and-restore workflow for their critical media assets, with maximum efficiency and uptime.”
Scality RING software-defined storage makes the most of MAM solutions like CatDV, delivering enhanced storage performance for media assets, the scalability to support a rapidly growing media infrastructure, and support for industry-standard X86 hardware to keep storage costs under control. Unlike conventional NAS systems, Scality enables 100 percent availability and “14 nines” durability.
The Scality RING integration uses CatDV’s Amazon AWS S3-based plug-in to move and access media managed by CatDV. Server-based queuing manages priority of archive and restore activity and can be deployed either with the server or alone for greater throughput. In addition, CatDV’s Worker provides new options to automate archive workflows based on CatDV metadata and policies. For example, users can opt either to archive all files that are older than one month or to archive files for a particular project when it is completed.
“Content is the core of our joint customers’ businesses, so keeping it intact and always available is critical,” said Paul Speciale, Scality’s chief product officer. “This integration makes it easier than ever for CatDV users to take full advantage of Scality RING software-defined storage, boosting the availability of content when and where it’s needed for production, distribution, and other critical media workflows.”

Studio Technologies Offers Flex-Use Audio Resources with Model 5330 Interface
Studio Technologies, manufacturer of high-quality audio, video, and fiber-optic solutions, introduces the Model 5330 Flex-Use Dante(r) Audio Interface, a simple yet high-performance means of interfacing analog signals with applications that utilize Dante audio-over-Ethernet media networking technology. Four line-level analog sources can be connected to the unit and then, after conversion to digital, output by way of four output (transmitter) channels associated with the Dante interface. Four signals that arrive by way of Dante can be converted to analog and then output as balanced line-level signals. A 2-channel/stereo monitor section allows the input and output signals to be selectively observed using meters, a headphone output, and line-level outputs.

EditShare Jumps Into The Game With Ubisoft Montreal Posted: 14/11/2018
EditShare Jumps Into The Game With Ubisoft Montr and eacute;al

EditShare® a technology leader in intelligent scale-out storage, AQC and media management solutions, is helping UbiSoft Montreal meet the demands of live capture, editing and real-time playback of up to 4K content with its enterprise EditShare XStream EFS 450 shared storage solutions and integrated EditShare Geevs video servers which support up to 4 concurrent ingest and playout streams. “We have a different set up from the typical capture or montage studio. First, our montage studio is larger than the average. With over 3,500 people on staff, we have a lot of different connections and workflow demands,” says Michel Forbes, System Administrator, Ubisoft Montreal. “One of the key workflows is live capture, edit and real-time video playback. This is the defacto workflow for many teams; the complexity of managing such a large operation and heavy project load requires a high degree of organization and system performance. We researched the options and found EditShare to be versatile enough to meet the requirements with the performance necessary to support the nuances and needs of these demanding productions.”
