IMT Software Integrates SoDA Data Management Application With CatDV MAM System
IMT Software, a division of Integrated Media Technologies has announced the integration of Square Box Systems’ CatDV media asset management (MAM) system and IMT Software’s SoDA data management application. The integrated solution offers a unified archive-and-restore process to CatDV users and simplifies the use of cloud strategies by leveraging SoDA’s capabilities to manage on-prem, cloud or hybrid cloud storage resources.
“Storage is at the heart of any successful media management platform and strategy,” says Dave Clack, CEO, Square Box Systems. “That is why we are integrating CatDV with SoDA providing a simple archive and data management solution to the cloud, as well as, on premise object storage for our customers.”
Designed to optimize and manage MAM storage systems and archives, SoDA data management software allows CatDV users to streamline post-production workflows from ingest to archive and manage projects to and from the cloud within a single interface. The integrated solution delivers policy-based data management to move media assets between on-prem and cloud storage tiers seamlessly and provides the built-in capability to access, search and archive media assets. SoDA predicts the cost and time required to move data to and from the cloud, giving users unprecedented insight to make smart, informed cloud storage decisions.
“Cloud storage is an essential part of today’s modern workflows, and it is more important than ever to understand the true costs of the cloud,” said Bruce Lyon, IMT’s CEO. “SoDA provides real-time insight into cloud spend and data transfer and access times, while also allowing users to leverage all storage tiers within AWS within a single solution. The integration of SoDA and CatDV’s award-winning MAM system enables users to attain new levels of insight into their assets and the costs and simplify the lifecycle management of their data.”
CatDV creates catalogs of all types of media and metadata including video, images, audio files and documents through advanced analysis of metadata information both internal and external to the media it is tracking. From small production groups with hundreds of assets to large multinational enterprises with millions of assets, CatDV can scale to the needs of any organization.
