PreRollPost™ Archiver- Affordable LTO Archive System
NOW with Discovery Channel tape Verification Tools!
PreRollPost™ is an application that automates indexing your camera originals, complete with thumbs, proxies and metadata, while backing up full resolution media to local disk and long-term LTO-5 or LTO-6 tape.
PreRollPost takes advantage of the Linear File Transfer System (LTFS) supported by tape drive manufacturers. The LTFS mounts a tape as a volume (hard disk) within OSX. This makes it possible to write and read from the tape as if it were a disk without proprietary software or formatting. It also makes PreRollPost hardware independent—you can use it with any LTFS compliant tape drive.
The PreRollPost Archiver Macintosh software controls copy operations from field hard disks (created using ShotPut Pro™) onto LTO-5 or LTO-6 tape. You may choose to make an additional copy onto local hard disk at the same time. All copies are verified using MD5 checksum integrity algorithms.
The backup process is not specific to HD files; it may be used with any files. For example, you can back up NLE project files or entire hard disks if desired.
However, if you are backing up camera originals, PreRollPost has an option to create thumbs and browse quality 5 second proxies (using ProxyMill™ application). The index is saved onto the local hard disk as well as optionally on the LTO tape.
Tapes may be presented to clients as a self-contained "Deliverable" with high resolution originals, and an index of clips in QuickTime format that may be played directly from the tape at any time.
PreRollPost requires a LTO-5 or LTO-6 tape drive, and mini-SAS interface device or card. The PreRollPost 'one-click' installer includes everything you need to easily get LTFS up and running for single drive LTO-5 or LTO-6 HP, IBM, Quantum and Tandeberg models. HD-VU™ and ProxyMill™ demos included; full license activations for these sold separately.
