Imagine Products, Inc., award winning software publisher specializing in video indexing solutions, and Primera Technology, Inc., a leading manufacturer of DVD and Blu-ray Disc™ publishers, announced today they have partnered to offer a fully-integrated digital video archiving solution.
Video professionals can now streamline their workflow and automatically archive content onto write-once Blu-ray Disc media using Imagine’s popular ShotPut Pro™ software and a Primera Bravo-Series Disc Publisher. The entire offloading, disc creation and label printing archival process is automatic and hands-free.
“Our solution introduces the first Macintosh compatible, automated and failsafe method to store content from Panasonic P2 and AVCHD, Sony XDCam, and RED ONE memory cards. This is a remarkably affordable and effective solution for those who need to archive for the long term,” said Dan Montgomery, President, Imagine Products, Inc.
With ShotPut Pro™ as soon as a video card (volume) is detected, an offload (copy) is started to multiple hard drive locations including a designated “burn folder” for a Bravo-Series Disc Publisher. As offloads are completed, card copies are automatically created on Blu-ray discs for archive. The burned discs are printed with smudge proof ink direct-to-disc and include customized information such as contents, date and project information gathered directly from the video card’s Metadata. Sample templates may be further customized with your own graphics and company logo, or other text information.
ShotPut Pro™ is just $89.00 and can be installed on any Macintosh computer running OS X 10.4 or 10.5, and is also available for Windows XP/Vista®. ShotPut Pro™ version 2.0 with the Primera support is available now as a free upgrade to existing ShotPut Pro™ owners.
The Primera/Imagine offloading and archival solution was very well received as it was previewed at the National Association of Broadcasters exhibition held in Las Vegas, NV, April 20-23, 2009 in the Primera, Panasonic and Sony booths.
ShotPut Pro™ v 2.0 is available from Imagine Products webstore at www.imagineproducts.com or from Primera at www.primerastore.com.
