PROXSYS PA-10 (HDD 4TB + LTO-5 Drive)
VITEC Proxsys PA Series
What we think:
Many buyers think Digital asset management (DAM) is just too complex, too expensive and suitable only for big organizations.
Proxsys PA will change all that. It's a turnkey system that combines local online video storage with a tape drive for long-term archiving. Not only does it support media and video files, but it can also archive complete NLE projects. So there it is, finally, a turnkey system that's quick to set up, easy to use, enables fast media searching and retrieval, and safeguards your content.
Proxsys PA is a robust and cost effective Media Archive Solution combined with online video storage, an online database and long term LTO-5 archive. It presents a complete Workflow for smart archiving ranging from fast ingest of your data, online access to all preview clips and temporary Hi-res files and easy file organization, search and preview via an intuitive Graphical User Interface to automated archiving on LTO-5 tapes.
With our new generation Proxsys PA you can directly import and archive XDCAM (EX), P2, AVCHD, AVCIntra, MOV, AVI, H.264, MPEG-2, uncompressed, etc. files or even complete NLE projects.
As enhancement of an NLE Editing Server you can simply drag your Final Cut, Edius or Premiere project file to a self defined Watch-Folder from which the PA will copy the project - with all assets and folder names/locations - to the Proxsys online storage. After set rules (e.g. after 30 days) the project will be archived on LTO-5 tape; and can later be completely retrieved simply via the LTO-5 tape. Thanks to the LTFS file system you can mount an LTO-5 tape just like a standard removable media.
The former time and resource consuming process is reduced to a minimum while your desired files are safely stored and ready for use with just a few clicks. The project oriented structure allows you to keep track of your media and via linked metadata information the powerful search engine of the Proxsys PA facilitates the search and retrieval of your media content.
