Sony XDA-AI2PK overview

  • 1Description

The Sony XDCAM Archive Management System, (2 Server Package) is an easy to use system that helps manage, find and archive all your media and metadata. This management system can be used in conjunction with various news/edit systems, workstations, connected devices, and users in the field — making it the perfect set of tools for on and offline content. This turnkey file-based content archive management solution comes pre-installed with all client applications that are accessible through a standard IT network, making setup and integration into existing systems a breeze.

Using a central server, the XDCAM archive system can manage all your material and uses XDCAM Professional Discs as the offline shelf archive format. Like XDCAM Professional Discs, all clips on the archive system have a low resolution proxy and a hi-resolution version. The proxy files are always available on the system server, while the hi-resolution files are either kept online or archived offline to the XDCAM Professional Discs. Not just video, XDCAM archive manages all your documents, pictures, music clips, and graphics; in fact anything you want!

This intuitive system offers great tools for digitizing, importing, cataloguing, and archiving, besides supporting ingesting of video content from both file-based and tape-based materials. With the XDCAM archive system, you get a fast and convenient method to add and edit metadata fields for video content. Additionally, it also allows you to customize your search parameters and quickly locate any file on the system.
