Data Migration

Leverage your assets

Before you begin implementing a new media production system, you need to have a solid plan in place for migrating all of your existing assets and material. Avid Labs Data Migration is a versatile solution that makes it easy to migrate both media and metadata from your existing production environment into Interplay | Production.

The Data Migration solution performs the migration in three steps, starting with full metadata migration. In this step, configurable options allow for attribute mapping—including custom attributes and time-based keywords contained in your existing system. In the second step, all media located on your existing servers will be migrated into Interplay | Production and rewrapped into a compatible format. And in the third step, all material located in any tape archives you may have will be migrated.

  • Get easy and automated migration using a standalone toolkit
  • Prioritize any media that is needed immediately for production
  • Maintain all of your existing metadata

Interplay | Production-Analytics

Make informed production decisions

With increasing challenges of networked media production environments, and the rapid increase in stored data across a rising number of systems, performing detailed data analysis is a critical requirement. That’s why Avid Labs designed an effective reporting solution for Interplay | Production. While current Interplay systems provide some components that can be used for data analysis, the new Interplay | Production-Analytics solution aims to benefit the vast majority of Interplay | Production customers.

Interplay | Production-Analytics features a dedicated data-mining database and a set of predefined reports. The data pulled from Interplay | Production is stored in a Microsoft SQL Server database and processed by SQL Server Reporting Services. It is also possible to customize reports utilizing external business intelligence solutions such as Tableau or Chartio.

  • Experience seamless integration with Interplay | Production
  • Use standard APIs that are open to the public
  • Get reliable data with state-of-the-art, service-oriented architecture
