Primeras’s Archiving Solution for Tapeless Video Workflow is Now Shipping
New software allows automated offloading and archival of digital video content.
PLYMOUTH, MN, USA (June 9, 2009) — Primera Technology, Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer of CD/DVD and Blu-ray Disc™ Publishers, announced that it has partnered with Imagine Products, Inc. to offer fully-integrated support for Imagine’s award-winning ShotPut Pro™ software. Primera and Imagine recently introduced their combined solution at NAB 2009 in Las Vegas. The products are now shipping.
Video professionals can now streamline their workflow and automatically archive content onto write-once DVD and Blu-ray Disc media using Imagine’s software and a Primera DP- or XR-Series Disc Publisher. The entire offloading and archival process is automatic and hands-free.
“Until now, hard drives have been a popular way of offloading and storing video content in a tapeless workflow. But what if your 1TB drive fails? You’ve lost hundreds of hours of footage forever,” said Mark D. Strobel, Primera’s vice president of sales and marketing.
“Our solution is the world’s first inexpensive, automated and failsafe method to store content from P2, AVCHD, SxS and RED memory cards. This is a remarkably affordable and effective solution for those who need to archive for the long term,” added Mr. Strobel.
As soon as a video volume is detected, an offload is started to multiple drive locations which can include hard drives and a DP or XR-Series Disc Publisher. The burned disc is printed direct-to-disc with customized information that can include Metadata directly from the camera’s memory card.
ShotPut Pro can be installed on any Mac® OS X, 10.4 or higher. A Windows XP/Vista® version is also available.
