The optional Interplay Archive network service provides desktop-based, drag-and-drop archiving and retrieval of clips, sequences, and other media assets. The Interplay database tracks files stored in an external storage library, so team members can look for both archived and online media using a single interface. Interplay Archive restores requested files to the online system automatically.
Streamline access to and from archive
Send a clip to the selected archive destination directly from the Interplay Assist or Access window, or drag-and-drop into an Auto Archive folder.
Search without switching applications
Easily search for a clip in the archive database using the SEARCH tab in the Interplay Access window.
Eliminate clutter with Partial Restore
Skip the guesswork: you can use the "tree" view to find only the clip you want to restore. If only a segment of the archived master clip is required, Interplay Archive orders a partial restore of the subclip, saving time and online bandwidth.
Simplify transfers to and from the editing suite
A menu command embedded in the Media Composer, NewsCutter, iNEWS Instinct, and Symphony Nitris system interfaces makes it easy to send and retrieve media to and from archive, without interrupting the edit session.
Let Auto Archive do the housekeeping
Simply drag a clip or sequence to an Auto Archive folder and let Interplay media service and system options (such as Interplay Transcode or the Airspeed Multi Stream server) generate and store low-res versions of archived media for preview prior to retrieval.
Folder level archiving
Interplay Archive supports archiving or restoring all of the Avid assets in a given folder in a single operation, dramatically simplifying the user interface for these routine tasks.
Avid offers fully integrated, tested, and supported Interplay Archive solutions based on SpectraLogic and Sun StorageTek archive storage libraries, as well as software from SGL and other leading archive management software partners.
Start small or go big
With Interplay’s highly scalable archive capacity, you can start with a small high-density solution and scale to hundreds of petabytes of capacity, all managed within the same simple interface.
