Media Asset management is an essential part of television production. With tape no longer being the industry standard of acquisition it is easy to misplace of even loose footage that has been shot. We no longer have the luxury of going to the library and finding a physical tape and this is why products like CatDV have become so valuable.
CatDV is an easy to use, editor agnostic platform capable of scaling from a single user license model to a multi user enterprise product that can be used in and outside your facility or production base. CatDV has a quick and easy to use interface that combines advance search functions, Metadata tagging and manipulation within customer customizable project panels, sequence and locator integration with both Avid Media Composer FCP and Adobe, as well and a web interface that can be used for review and approval as well as on set logging. CatDV will also automate ingest and check in of new assets using the CatDV Worker node.
New options and features see added integration for XenData archive and a dedicated Adobe Premier Panel.
