Magewell Cloud management software provides centralised confi guration and control of multiple Magewell streaming and IP conversion devices. It also offers stream management features including protocol conversion and SRT relay. The system can run on a cloud hosting platform or on-premise server. Magewell claims an intuitive, browser-

based interface makes it easy for integrators, administrators and users to manage multiple Magewell encoders and decoders across many locations. Also new is Magewell’s Ultra Encode family of universal live media encoders, which are designed to offer systems integrators and video

professionals a fl exible and affordable encoding solution for applications ranging from live streaming and remote contribution to IP-based production. Ultra Encode supports H.264, H.265 and NDI|HX encoding, plus a wide range of streaming protocols, including SRT, RTMP, RTMPS, RTSP and HLS. Ultra Encode can also be combined with Magewell’s Pro Convert decoders for end-to-end media transport in NDI|HX or streaming formats.


Archiware BY DAVID FOX

Archiware has released version 7.0 of its P5 Data Management Platform, which is claimed to contain “a slew of innovative features”. These include an elastic container storage engine for disk and cloud, true incremental cloud backup, an LTFS engine with Archiware’s own driver that can import foreign LTFS volumes and offers LTFS exchange support on all platforms, as well as fast verifi cation of written data. P5’s new container storage

Magewell’s new Ultra Encode family of universal live media encoders


format for backup and archive to cloud storage moves away from the virtual tape concept. Multiple volumes are now replaced with single Storage Containers to access disk and cloud storage.

As of P5 version 7.0, regular full backups are a thing of

the past. The amount of data requiring renewed backup to disk and cloud is signifi cantly reduced, thanks to the new elastic container storage format, along with the intelligent organisation of the data within. Expired containers are simply removed from the backup when no longer needed. Full backups are only required when writing to LTO tape, allowing whole tapes to be recycled and reused. Support for import of

foreign LTFS volumes brings benefi ts for users with data stored on such tapes. LTFS tapes can now easily be searched and browsed by importing them into P5 Archive to an index of choice. All LTFS tapes written by P5 or third-party LTFS software are supported. Formatting, reading and writing of LTFS volumes for import/export is supported on all P5 platforms, including Windows and FreeBSD.

Collaboration in the cloud is clear-cut for Composer users with Postlab CREATE & PRODUCE Hedge BY DAVID FOX

Hedge has unveiled Postlab for Media Composer, a cloud-native system for Avid editors, allowing them to work remotely, but together, through Avid’s own collaborative tools.

Postlab for Media Composer serves as an extension to an on-premise Nexis or other Avid-

compatible NAS/SAN storage, eliminating cumbersome access gateways and high latency associated with cloud- media workfl ows, and it is usable regardless of available bandwidth. Where bandwidth is insuffi cient for real-time cloud operation, media fi les are prefetched and securely cached, so they’re available for immediate editing. A fl exible pricing model lets post facilities and media businesses use the Postlab

platform without upfront commitment and scale or reduce team sizes when needed. Paul Matthijs, co-founder and CEO of Hedge, said: “Media companies need a way to collaborate remotely right now. Given the uncertainty around the pandemic, many do not want to make signifi cant investments or sweeping infrastructure changes. Postlab for Media Composer extends facilities’ on-premise storage by providing much- needed secure remote editing

Archiware P5 has replaced multiple storage volumes with a single container

for a small incremental cost. It’s fast, secure remote editing that delivers the same great experience of being in the facility.”

It includes “industrial-strength security without having to rely on slow and hard-to-confi gure VPNs”, so editors can work from anywhere, even with slower

internet connections. Postlab can keep existing workspaces in sync and makes Avid’s bin locking feature work in the cloud so users can seamlessly collaborate on projects without overwriting each other’s work: a crucial component of any workfl ow, on-premise or in the cloud.
