NLT Archive

By combining NLT’s powerful migration technology that provides the interface to Interplay Production and the massive storage offered by the XenData Archive Server, content can be moved quickly from online to a near-line position and later restored to Avid ISIS on-line storage for reuse. Since clip and sequence metadata is always online within Interplay Production, users can quickly find and decide which assets to retrieve from the archive.

• The Open Interplay Archive provides desktop-based archiving and retrieval of media assets such as clips and sequences. The Interplay database tracks media files stored in the SONY ODA or LTO library, so team members can look for both archived and online media using a single interface such as Interplay Access or MediaCentral | UX. User's simply select and right click to restore assets, NLT's Nearchive server moves the media assets to the ISIS SAN where they appear online automatically.

• Optionally, the solution indexes content and supports searching independently of the Avid Interplay Production database. All clips written to the archive are cataloged by an extended configuration of axle Video’s browser-based asset manager. This configuration makes the entire contents of the archive searchable from any PC, Mac or iPad connected via WiFi, allowing archived files that originated in Interplay Production to be searched and retrieved by users not connected to the production workgroup.

• In addition to search functions, axle allows browsing of all assets in the archive via its built-in H.264 streaming player capabilities. When each master clip is saved to the Open Interplay Archive a streamable H.264 proxy file is also placed into a reserved folder structure in axle, and associated with the master clip and its metadata. Users who are browsing assets can play back any clip, as well as scrub within the clip, advance frame by frame and share comments on the clip with their colleagues.
