Square Box Systems Unveils Pegasus Server

News Image
Square Box Systems has unveiled the CatDV Pegasus Server.

It is suitable for large enterprise deployments with demanding MAM requirements and features a new accelerated CatDV search engine for fast, Google-style searches across millions of assets. The Pegasus Server also includes support for Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and MySQL databases, as well as analytics, reporting, and audit capabilities.

The new Pegasus Server joins two others at the top end of the CatDV server range; the entry-level CatDV Workgroup Server, ideal for small teams, and the CatDV Enterprise Server, equipped with configurable security and suited to larger departments and production facilities. Enabling networked CatDV operation, all three servers leverage a client-server architecture and a central shared database, which allows media catalogs to be searched and updated by multiple concurrent users.

With the accelerated CatDV search engine and a new auto-suggest capability for search terms, the Pegasus Server delivers improved search capabilities in enterprise-scale deployments with many millions of assets. By precaching searches, the Pegasus Server enables text searching that can be at least 100 times faster than other MAM search engines. By tracking every change to the CatDV database, the Pegasus Server also delivers full audit capabilities. The server's reporting and analytics engine enables users to generate system and media usage reports.

In addition, the Pegasus Server provides flexible access control rules that enable enterprises to set custom permissions based on a user's role; for example, only users that belong to a certain sports team can view game video for that team.

"The CatDV Pegasus Server offers everything large enterprises need to access and work with their mission-critical media assets as efficiently and safely as possible," said Dave Clack, CEO of Square Box Systems. "At the 2016 NAB Show, we're looking forward to showing enterprise customers how the Pegasus Server's enhanced search, analytics, and security capabilities can deliver new efficiencies, cost savings, and peace of mind."

Square Box Systems will highlight the Pegasus Server at the 2016 NAB Show, booth SL5025. The new server will be available immediately following the show, with support for Mac, Windows, and Linux environments. Square Box Systems will also offer an additional REST API option for the Pegasus Server that automates CatDV setup and configuration.
