SGL, provider of content archive and storage management software for media and entertainment, is showing its Avid Interplay web services plug-in with partial file restore at NAB 2016, taking place between 16 and 21 April. Powered by Glookast, developer of tools that solve challenging media production issues, the partial file restore functionality is a key feature as it enables editors to easily select and restore elements of a clip directly from the archive in high resolution. Prior to this, partial file restore functionality could only be achieved using the full Avid Interplay Archive system.
Glookast’s Glooport media retriever powers the partial file restore element of the workflow, allowing editors to partially retrieve media from the archive rather than fully restoring entire assets. This means, for example, that an editor can archive a high-res version of an Avid asset via SGL’s Avid Interplay Web Services plug-in keeping a proxy online within the Avid system. If they want to restore only a portion of that proxy, Glookast’s Glooport media|retriever provides the capacity to carry out the partial restore of the archived assets so that editor only restores the portions required.
