Archive and storage products may contain assets, but without a way of tracking, finding and retrieving them, they are virtually worthless resources. It is impossible to separate archiving and storage of assets from the ability to manage the assets. Stark business sense suggests that archiving and storage are functions of a holistic media asset management system, not a separate operation.
The cost of not having ready access to the archive, or of not being able to search and restore copies into the production environment at will, is to fail to exploit the archive’s potential.
EditShare's Flow media asset management system seamlessly integrates with Ark Tape, EditShare's LTO-based backup/archive system:
- Proxy video files are automatically created for all media copied to Ark, enabling browse, search, and viewing of all clips stored on Ark
- The status of all clips is shown in Flow Browse: online, archived, online + archived, or offline
- Authorized users can restore individual clips from within the Flow Browse application
- The media space restore destination can be chosen by the user from within the Flow Browse client
With a centralized and integrated archive, all of your media is always just a few clicks away, enhancing workflow efficiency, production creativity, and revenue generation.
