FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PANASONIC ANNOUNCES ARCHIVING SOFTWARE FOR P2 CONTENT
SECAUCUS, NJ (February 22, 2011) -- Panasonic Solutions Company has introduced new software products, the AJ-SF110 Video Ingest software and AJ-SF100 Linear Open-Tape (LTO) Archive software, to facilitate the secure storage and easy retrieval of P2 content. The software supports all P2 card sizes, formats and frame rates.
The AJ-SF100 software is for archiving P2 files to LTO, Blu-ray (BD) or other storage devices. It features proxy creation, metadata editing and works with database software (SQL server) functions. With AJ-SF100 software installed, the operator can quickly search content on the storage device with metadata and preview the proxy image to confirm. When using an LTO storage device, the operator can playback P2 content on the LTO directly and retrieve partial images from it quickly and easily. In addition, the transferring speed of the LTO is up to six times faster than AVC-Intra 100 normal speed, when using LTO5*.
The AJ-SF110 software is for video ingesting via IEEE 1394 or SDI. It converts the footage of a connected video recorder to P2 files such as AVC-Intra 100/50, DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV during ingest. When connecting a video recorder via SDI, it can also control the recorder with RS-422. With the AJ-SF110 and AJ-SF100 software installed, a large amount of content on video tapes can be easily ingested as P2 files and archived.
Support requirements for the video ingest software include a PC with more than 8GB DDR3 memory, Windows 7 professional 64-bit OS, and an SDI interface board; requirements for the LTO Archive software are a similarly configured PC plus SQL server software, external HDD, a P2 drive, and a BD, LTO or other storage device.
The AJ-SF100 LTO Archive software and AJ-SF110 Video Ingest software are available in May at suggested list prices of $5,000 and $2,500, respectively.
* AJ-SF100 supports LTO4 AND LTO5.
