IRVINE, Calif., April 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- StorageDNA, Inc. today announced the version 2.0 release of its flagship workflow product, DNA Evolution™ for LTFS LTO-5 archive and retrieval. In response to feedback from their customers, the company is now making available significant feature enhancements for improved media asset management, broadcast integration, digital camera masters and Thunderbolt™ support for PCIe expansion devices. DNA Evolution 2.0 will be available in the second quarter of 2012 and a free upgrade for existing customers with a support contract.
Leading the list of improvements is the introduction of StorageDNA's miniMAM™, a built-in product enhancement that provides clip views, thumbnails and proxies for many of the most popular camera and editing codecs used today. In addition, StorageDNA has added archive and retrieval support for Avid® Interplay® using the Web services SDK, which does not require a separate archive server database. StorageDNA has also added enhanced bin, sequence and project archiving for popular editorial applications, such as Avid and Final Cut Pro®, using a simple drop folder.
DNA Evolution 2.0 provides new broadcast workflows for on-air archive and compliance for Avid® Airspeed® and Omneon® Spectrum™ playout servers. This automated workflow will archive all media sent to air and create a browseable database. An improved user interface is also featured for archiving raw media camera assets from many of the top camera manufacturers. In addition, the new release offers improved workflows with multi-target archiving to LTFS LTO-5 and disc, as well as user-definable templates and distribution formats for LTFS LTO-5 "with the touch of a button." DNA Evolution 2.0 provides support for the Thunderbolt PCIe expansion chassis from Sonnet™ and Magma®. This new feature will allow users the flexibility to choose from multiple Apple® CPU offerings including the iMac® or MacBook® Pro for their archiving needs.
"With the phenomenal growth of file-based workflows and media, our customers need to easily archive, locate, restore, distribute and share their digital assets," said Tridib Chakravarty, president and CEO of StorageDNA. "The major feature enhancements in this release were designed to meet the creative and technical workflow demands of today's production, broadcast, and post production professionals."
