Archiware P5

Archiware’s P5 data management software offers professional protection, replication, backup and archive for production storage. P5 Backup ensures that large data sets are backed up in the shortest time possible. P5 Archive is a long-term storage solution for data migration with mini-MAM features. P5 Synchronize replicates data to ensure maximum data availability.

Limecraft Solution and Integration with P5 Archive

Limecraft is a collaborative workspace that combines ingest and handling of dailies, computer-assisted logging, transfers back and forth post-production, online sharing, review and approval, and management masters including subtitling and localisation. Limecraft speeds up production and increases quality because it removes switching between multiple apps or transferring data between different tools. High-profile production needs optimum protection. For this reason, automatic archiving to LTO tape is available through integration with Archiware P5 Archive.

Protecting production at the very beginning: Check-in and check-out of Camera Cards

Many high-volume producers need improved support of camera cards in post-production to optimise their workflow. They also need to prevent the creation of folders or ad hoc. Collections of files from camera cards need to be archived, managed, and checked by online editors. Metadata needs to be consistent to be the foundation for later postproduction and long-term use.

Balancing LTO tape and online storage generates significant savings in terms of reduced high-performance online storage space. Additionally, LTO tape offers maximum security through its air gap and durability. Automated workflows driving the storage management help avoid errors and reduce turn-around times. Material can be easily retrieved and instantly used in post-production without manual intervention.

In a first step, camera cards are recognised by Limecraft Edge and transferred as such to a Networked Attached Storage (NAS). Simultaneously, Limecraft Edge also creates web proxies and sends them to Limecraft Flow, including their grouping as a card and adding the card manifest to the collection.

Next, a custom workflow to archive those cards as such from the NAS to the tape drive driven by Archiware P5 Archive) is triggered by Limecraft Flow (in the cloud) and executed by Cloud Connector running on premise.

The Mayam Tasks workflow engine software package brings the advanced functionality required by leading media companies. The Mayam Tasks workflow engine is currently in use supporting media workflows in 15+ countries.

 

 

Mayam recently developed JustSKOS.

JustSKOS is a structured multi-lingual application of the SKOS-XL standard to manage flat and hierarchical data sets, allowing tailored presentation and edit views.

 

 

Mayam Tasks and Mayam JustSKOS are deeply integrated back and forth Limecraft Workspaces. Complex workflows can be started from within the Limecraft environment. During execution by Mayam, progress reporting is displayed in parallel in both in Mayam and in Limecraft user interfaces. Taxonomies managed by Mayam JustSKOS can be used as a restricted datatype for custom fields defined in Limecraft.

Mayam handles complex tasks such as receiving and processing order confirmations, accessing physical storage vaults, or managing long-running QC or restoration tasks.

To the end-user, it is completely transparent integration as there is only one login and a single user interface.
