Key Code Media announces Exciting news from the StorageDNA front.

StorageDNA is releasing some very cool features June 30th.  The new features were shown off at NAB 2012 and the beta testing has gone incredibly well.
miniMAM™Version 2.0 gives DNA Evolution its first set of miniMAM features including:
– Clip view
– Enhanced web view that virtualizes a set of files in a file-system to a clip view; for example,
when archiving an Avid MediaFiles folder with a number of files, DNA Evolution will present
an enhanced virtual view that presents clips rather than the underlying file structure; this clip
view will match what the editor sees in Avid® Media Composer®, and will also enable
searching on clip names to quickly find what is needed
– Clip-name extraction support for the following file types (P2 Op Atom MXF, Avid Op Atom
MXF, MOVs, Op 1a MXF)
– Clip-name extraction extended to other file-types (such as, XDCAM) post-version 2.0
Proxy view
– DNA Evolution will be able to play proxies tied to clips
– Proxies will not be auto-generated by DNA Evolution, however, DNA Evolution can be
configured to point to a proxy directory and it will index and link the proxy to the hi-res; proxy
to hi-res link is maintained by looking for a partial name match of the hi-res in the proxy
directory
– The proxies are web playable via a QuickTime® player; as long as the proxies are playable in
QuickTime, they will be viewable
Enhanced bin/sequence archiving and restore for Avid®, FCP 7, Adobe®
• DNA Evolution will feature a fully automated mechanism for editors to archive and restore their bins
and sequences, without the need for IT help
• The mechanism will allow an editor to export a bin/sequence in a watch folder via AAF/XML
• Once exported, DNA Evolution will process the bin/sequence for archive or restore and manage the
process transparently
• Editors will be able to view the progress via a web URL
• Supported types:
o Avid AAF for AMA and non-AMA media

o Adobe® Premiere® AAF/XML
Avid® Interplay® support

restore content from the Interplay Access/Media Composer interface
• DNA Evolution integrates into Avid Interplay via web services, eliminating the need for an additional
archive database

CatDV support
• DNA Evolution integrates with CatDV as an archive engine to archive and restore content from the
CatDV interface

archive, delete, move, and restore content
Queuing
• DNA Evolution supports queuing on the autoloader/library models
• Queuing allows multiple jobs to be initiated to the same autoloader; DNA Evolution can then queue
the jobs and also enables prioritization of the jobs
Support for Thunderbolt™ PCIe expansion devices
• A Thunderbolt version of DNA Evolution, designed to offer “true” desktop/laptop archiving to LTO, will
be released
• This version of DNA Evolution can be installed on any Mac® laptop with a Thunderbolt port for field or
standalone archiving and restores

content written to tape; the verification will perform LTFS tape health checks and content checks
ensuring complete tape and content integrity
