Square Box Systems Announces CatDV MAM Enhancements

News Image
Square Box Systems has introduced a selection of new enhancements for its CatDV media asset management (MAM) solution.

The updates include expanded customization capabilities for tailored MAM workflows, new enhancements for cloud and hybrid installations, and expanded support for micro-services and distributed deployments.

"Our enterprise customers asked, and now we've delivered. With these latest enhancements, we're offering more customization options than ever before for deploying completely tailored MAM workflows based on CatDV," said Dave Clack, CEO, Square Box Systems. "And now, CatDV can operate seamlessly in hybrid IT environments consisting of both on-premise and cloud-based resources. This enables the transparent management and movement of assets for creative workers who prefer to focus on making compelling content rather than worry about NAS, SAN, cloud, or object storage tiers."

CatDV's new customization features include enhanced JavaScript support and an all-new custom user interface toolkit. Both the desktop and web versions of CatDV and the system's Worker automation engine now support JavaScript, and the user interface toolkit enables customers to build completely new user experiences for every CatDV component. Recent CatDV customizations, built on these APIs, include a document analyzer that can extract text from PDFs, photos, and MS Office documents for indexing by CatDV; and a tool for uploading assets to YouTube.

CatDV's new cloud/hybrid enhancements include integrations with file acceleration tools from Aspera, as well as extended support for AWS S3 archive, such as KMS encryption and Glacier support with configurable expedited restores. CatDV has also built an all-new AWS deployment template with proxy playback from S3. Additional enhancements include support for Backblaze B2 archive and Contigo object storage.

In addition, CatDV now includes the ability to deploy server plug-in components on separate servers. Examples include data movers for archive plug-ins such as Black Pearl, S3, Azure, and B2.
