Archive content to LTO, Sony ODA or Microsoft's Azure Cloud using Xendata Library Management Software, The Xendata software can support multiple libraries both on-premises or in the cloud using cost-effective Azure Cold Blob Storage. NLT's Archive is fully integrated with Xendata providing a best in class archive solution for the Interplay Production Asset Management system.
NLT’s powerful asset migration technology provides the interface between Interplay Production and the library management system, content can be moved quickly from online to a near-line or archive position and later restored to Avid Nexis 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.
Archive now supports archiving content directly from iNews story queues. With this standard feature, Archive is able to poll designated iNews queues for new stories with linked sequences, extract the related sequence information, and automatically generate a STORE job request to archive the sequence (which pulls in all master clips and relatives). In addition, the story metadata is extracted from the "News story markup language document" and added to select items in the sequence being archived. This enriched story content can then be searched for using Interplay, MediaCentral or using the Archive's browser-based asset search feature.
