Enhanced Support for Creative Workflows — CatDV now enables even more creative workflows through integrations with Adobe Creative Cloud and Avid® Media Composer. The system now features an updated and more powerful Advanced Adobe panel that can also operate in Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects, Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. CatDV also boasts enhanced support for Avid workflows.
Enhancements for Cloud and Hybrid Deployments — CatDV now offers a range of cloud and hybrid (supporting both on-premise and cloud) deployment options, including the seamless management and movement of content for creative workers who prefer to focus on making compelling content rather than worrying about NAS, SAN, cloud, or object storage tiers. New integrations with file acceleration tools from Aspera make these options even more compelling. In addition, CatDV now offers extended support for AWS S3 archive including KMS encryption and Glacier support with configurable expedited restores. CatDV has also built an all-new AWS deployment template with proxy playback from S3. Additional enhancements include an integration with Media Silo and support for Backblaze B2 archive.
Expanded Support for Micro-Services and Distributed Deployments — CatDV now includes the ability to deploy server plugin components on separate servers. Examples include data movers for archive plugins such as Black Pearl, S3, Azure, and B2.
New Workflow Automation Options and Extensions — CatDV now offers powerful new workflow automation enhancements, including a file path cleaner for removing invalid characters that can wreak havoc with storage and creative tools downstream; an MD5 checker; policy-based archives and restores; a document/PDF analyzer with simple OCR; and a YouTube uploader. Also available is a two-factor authentication and single sign-on solution based on SAML2– providing additional security for both web and installed CatDV users.
