CACHE-A v3.1 ARCHIVE APPLIANCE UPDATE DELIVERS POWERFUL NEW FEATURES AND LTFS CAPABILITIES AT IBC 2012

Date: 30/08/2012

Cache-A Corporation, manufacturer of award-winning archiving appliances, will showcase the latest v3.1 software upgrade for its range of archive appliances at IBC 2012, Amsterdam, 7-11 Sept, (Hall 7.E06). This powerful upgrade delivers dramatic leaps in performance through accelerated 64-bit processing, new LTFS (Linear Tape File System) capabilities, and a host of customer-driven operational features allowing users to archive, access and exchange archived content with even greater ease. 

The v3.1 upgrade will be available across all Cache-As archive appliances the desktop Prime-Cache5, flagship Pro-Cache5, high-performance Power-Cache, and flexible Library 24/48 automation systems. Highlights include: a new, enterprise-level, 64-bit, Linux Operating System (OS); high-speed LTFS (Linear Tape File System) dubbing, plus new LTFS tape-spanning capabilities; and a range of operational improvements, including e-mail notification and command queue management, which boost productivity and efficiency during archiving processes. 

The blazing speed of Cache-As new v3.1 upgrade is a huge advantage in our editing and archiving workflows, said Richard Price of NOW Productions, in Los Angeles, California. NOW Productions produces video and archives materials for the Church of MSIA, which holds over 80,000 pieces of video and audio media covering 45 years of recordings. The company uses the Power-Cache, and several Pro-Cache units, as the final archive for all projects and digitized original media. "Incredible performance, combined with the new LTFS features and improved user toolsets, allow us to confidently use LTO media into the foreseeable future." 

The new, 64-bit Linux OS (CentOS 6.2) transforms existing 32-bit Cache-A appliances to 64-bit processing, resulting in improved performance. The new OS improves integration of Cache-A archive appliances with storage systems from industry-leading manufacturers, including storage area network (SAN) solutions from Facilis, Studio Network Solutions and StorNext, and network-attached storage (NAS) solutions from Archion. 

The v3.1 upgrade also features significant LTFS enhancements, extending Cache-As leadership in supporting the LTFS format. As LTFS is an open format that other applications and platforms can read, it provides futureproof independence from specific software applications. It is compatible across solution environments, allowing increased data mobility and content interchange. 

The v3.1 upgrade supports high-speed LTFS tape-to-tape dubbing, enabling users to more rapidly make a perfect duplicate copy, or deliver content to a client. It also supports seamless tape-spanning for large projects. This facility allows a project to be automatically archived across multiple LTO-5 cartridges, and saves users from the difficulty of breaking up a project into cartridge-sized chunks. 

Among the operational improvements of the new v3.1 release are: e-mail notification on completion of archive and restore sessions; command queue management, enabling users to edit and prioritize jobs in an archiving queue; and user feedback improvements, including the addition of dialog boxes informing users about an appliances performance and activity status. 

"This latest upgrade underscores Cache-As Archiving Made Easy¢ mantra," said Phil Ritti, CEO of Cache-A. "It directly addresses customers needs to make archiving faster and more efficient, and is particularly advantageous for media and entertainment companies wanting long-term archive solutions with increased data mobility and the ability to share content organization-wide."

DPA Captures Sound for Netflix Original Film: Oxyg and egrave;ne

When it came time to record the Netflix original French-language film, Oxygène (Oxygen in English), the audio team had quite the challenge in front of them. The premise of the scientific horror film focuses on a scientist, played by French Actress Melanie Laurent, who has lost her memory, awakens, trapped in a medical pod and must find her way out before the oxygen levels diminish. Given the setting, the pod is used for 90 percent of the film and, with its tight quarters, Production Sound Mixer Ken Yasumoto and Boom Operator Josselin Panchout knew they needed a reliable and unobtrusive microphone solution, which they found in DPA Microphones.
