The <link products management-archive media-archiving product show pa-105060>Proxsys PA system leverages innovative design to ensure fast, easy access to video media associated with active projects. The Java web start Upload Tool enables users to drag-and-drop single files, structured content like XDCAM EX or complete NLE projects, extract and enrich metadata and push to the Proxsys PA online storage and ultimately, move to LTO-5/6 data tapes. Automatically generated preview clips, as well as temporary hi-res files can be quickly and easily accessed online. Utilizing the LTFS file system allows LTO tapes to be mounted like standard removable media, enabling quick file transfer to and from the archive tapes with just a few clicks. The newest Proxsys PA system, the Proxsys PA-60 supports 2.5 TB LTO-6 tapes.

Proxsys PA is compatible with popular camera formats including XDCAM, XDCAM EX, AVCHD, AVCINTRA and NLE solutions such as AVID Media Composer, Adobe Premiere, Apple Final Cut PRO X, GV Edius.

"No other solution on the market offers such a complete and comfortable workflow for cost effective media archiving on LTO 5/6 tape,” said Norman Schlomka, Proxsys Product Manager. “The combination of a browser-based user interface, integrated video engine for Proxy rendering and hierarchical storage management make the Proxsys PA-Series the best-in-class solution for managing and archiving video projects.”
