dnaLTFS with myLTOdna and PrimeTranscoder has been shortlisted in the Store category in the IABM BaM Awards™ 2018
INDIANAPOLIS and IRVINE, Calif. — March 29, 2018 — Imagine Products, creator of software utilities for backing up, viewing, sharing, transcoding, and archiving video assets, and StorageDNA, a leader in intelligent nearline and archiving workflow solutions for media professionals, today announced the joint solution, dnaLTFS with myLTO and PrimeTranscoder is a finalist for the IABM BaM 2018 at this year’s NAB show in Las Vegas. Both thought leaders, the two companies have collaborated on an integrated solution that enables random access to files on an LTO tape, essentially turning it into a hard drive with dnaLTFS – an LTFS adaptation that was never available before. The results are time savings and easier access to assets in production and postproduction workflows.
The new joint solution is called myLTOdna. It is an integration between Imagine Products’ myLTO tape-authoring application and StorageDNA’s HyperTape high performance direct access tape solution powered by dnaLTFS. The result is a simple and intuitive user interface with which to administrate HyperTape operating modes manually, or automatically from creative applications such as Imagine Products’ PrimeTranscoder — a process that is highly preferable to command line operations.
“StorageDNA has been dedicated to M&E markets since 2004, and we strive to provide customers with workflow-enhancing solutions that make LTO tape a more usable storage medium. We chose to work with Imagine Products on our HyperTape user interface because the company is known for highly intuitive interfaces and well respected for LTO/LTFS archiving and workflows,” said Tridib Chakravarty (tC), CEO and president of StorageDNA. “By joining forces with Imagine Products and integrating our capabilities, we are providing media professionals with the simplest and fastest LTO workflows available today.”
“When StorageDNA contacted us last year about a partnership, we jumped at the chance to work with another company as highly regarded for its advances in LTO/LTFS workflows. Together, we’ve created a cutting-edge solution unlike any other — a way to access files from an LTO tape like you would a hard drive,” said Michelle Maddox, marketing director at Imagine Products. “In doing so, we’re passing our many decades of combined knowledge and expertise directly to users. This kind of LTO solution has never been available before, and it will simplify so many workflows.”
