The clip metadata is continuously available in Interplay for searching. When needed the media is copied from Archive to ISIS and relinked to the clip for immediate use. …are you upgrading to ISIS, keep your existing MediaNet storage and use it as a Nearchive solution, ask us how.
- NLT has announced a partnership with XenData and axle Video to build an archive bundle that allows the Nearchive software to utilize the XenData tape archive which supports 1000’s of Terabytes of data. Nearchive now supports the tape automation required to support very long term archives as well as using disk storage for nearline caching of data. The deep archive is further enhanced by exporting the Interplay clip metadata with an H.264 proxy to the axle Video browsing software. Using axle Videos browser and the HTML 5 video player the entire contents of the archive can be browsed from any Mac, PC, or iPad and video reviewed. Restores can be triggered from within Interplay or using the external axle browser.
