May 23, 2012 Leave a comment

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 Final Cut Pro® 7 XML
o Adobe® Premiere® AAF/XML
Avid® Interplay® support
• DNA Evolution integrates with Avid Interplay as an archive engine to transparently archive and
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
• DNA Evolution integrates with the CatDV worker node and provides a native way for CatDV users to
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
Tape verification
DNA Evolution features a rapid tape verification function:
• Before source content is deleted, DNA Evolution can perform a verification and checksum of the
content written to tape; the verification will perform LTFS tape health checks and content checks
ensuring complete tape and content integrity

Avid Technology Professional Services Tandem Join Key Code Media

April 20, 2010-Burbank

Key Code Media announces the hiring of Ed Locke and Scott Williams. As Avid Technology, Inc. veterans they bring a combined eighteen years of experience working with advanced Avid solutions. The addition of Scott increases the number of certified Avid ISIS and Interplay engineers to 4 on staff, and Ed Locke brings 10 years of solution and workflow design experience. Mike Cavanagh, President of Key Code Media, states “Scott and Ed have a combined 25 years of industry experience, at Key Code Media they will help our customers manage the migration to tapeless workflows by leveraging advanced storage technologies and cutting-edge workflows covering ingest through distribution. Our clients count on Key Code Media to have the expertise to enable them to integrate the most cost effective and highest performing solutions available. This hiring further shows our commitment to providing the top talent in the industry to address complex solutions and workflows.”

Ed Locke joined the sales organization as a specialist on storage infrastructure and broadcast workflow. Ed spent much of his time at Avid working closely with broadcasters and the technologies that enable next-generation workflows. He discussed the significance of file-based workflows back in 2006 on a panel with other recognized experts at the “Tape-Less Revolution” event hosted at CBS Studio Center by the Television Academy. Most recently he worked on projects including “Entertainment Tonight/The Insider”, “The Ellen DeGeneres” show, Comcast Sports Net, and Fox Sports International. Asked about his move to Key Code, Ed had this to say; “Working for Key Code Media was a natural choice, their reputation for supporting their client base is completely aligned with my views. This position allows me to continue developing integrated multi-vendor solutions for broadcast clients while expanding the tool box to fully enable my design capability. Key Code Media’s exposure to our industry and their relationship with Avid create the exciting opportunity for me to work more closely with many of the customers I’ve been engaged with for years. I can continue to provide a deep knowledge of Avid’s workflow and solutions while leveraging complementary products to design a broad range of Editorial and Broadcast environments.”

Scott Williams joined the technical department and is well versed with integrating Avid solutions that include ingest through distribution and archive as well as configuring robust Cisco network infrastructures. Scott originally joined Avid through the Pinnacle acquisition and has deployed multiple mission critical broadcast systems including the West Coast deployment of the Fox SportsNet, CNN, Televisa (Mexico City), RDS (Montreal) and Bright House Networks using products such as Avid ISIS, and Avid Interplay. Scott adds “Key Code Media is big enough to support large client infrastructures, but also small enough to allow every employee have input and help guide clients. I am on the Strategic Product Group at Key Code Media which helps define, vet and approve the technologies we represent to our clients. I am excited about this next move for my career.”

Key Code Media is a media solutions value added reseller and systems integrator specializing in video and audio workflows including Avid Technology, Apple, HP, Sony, Panasonic, JVC, NewTek, Facilis, Digital Rapids, Isilon, StorageDNA, Root6 and Telestream.  Offices are located in Burbank, Santa Monica, San Francisco and Seattle.
