OWC’s Copy That software program is a workflow software designed to rapidly and precisely switch video footage to backups, editors, producers, and administrators.
With Camera to Cloud, which provides safe wi-fi transmission of video recordsdata as much as the cloud for post-production, it might be tempting to assume that backing up information utilizing a duplicate and switch utility is turning into outdated. However, issues can occur throughout switch to the cloud, like misplaced packets, or congestion that would trigger a file to not arrive or be incomplete.
OWC says its new Copy That software program streamlines the ingest course of with quick, verified copies of recordsdata from RED, Blackmagic, ARRI cameras, and different storage media.
“Copy That streamlines the process of copying media from cameras quickly, accurately, and securely to your storage solutions,” OWC explains. “Not only is your data copy incredibly fast, but it is also secure with checksum and file size verifications giving you peace of mind the copies are completely intact.”
The software program is designed to deal with great quantities of knowledge with larger bitrate transfers, and may carry out a number of file transfers from a number of digital camera connections. Not solely does Copy That backup and ingest information for archiving and post-production, however via quite a lot of checksum protocols, Copy That will confirm each little bit of your file’s switch to make sure that it’s being copied precisely with no dropped packets.
“Copy That for Mac is built on speed, optimized to complete the copy process using every available resource at its disposal, whether you are copying an entire card/disk or moving select files,” the corporate says. “Copy That for Mac’s intuitive interface enables you quickly select your media, destinations, reporting, and type of verification needed to begin the duplication process. Once set, Copy That gets to work — Copy, verify, complete.”
OWC argues that whereas velocity is nice, information integrity is extra necessary. Through a number of protocols together with XXHash-64, MD5, SHA-1, SHA-2 256, SHA-2 512, and file measurement verification, content material creators can be certain that the media information they switch arrives intact, and with Copy That’s reporting characteristic, the app will present detailed stories in PDF, CVS, TXT and different codecs that embody all related info, together with file identify, standing, checksum verification, begin and end dates, location, and many others.
“Once you’ve moved your media, you need to know precisely where it’s located at a moment’s notice. Copy That for Mac builds detailed reports (MHL, PDF, TXT, CVS) that include all relevant information,” OWC explains. “Reports also include thumbnails to find the shot you need in seconds. Copy That also makes sure you know where you are in the copying process with a Job Archive list that keeps track of copy jobs.”
Copy That additionally has customized presets, which will be set as a way to carry out the identical activity a number of occasions. Consequently, a manufacturing can preset the utility to switch from the identical digital camera setup, full with the identify, location, and file naming prefix and suffix particulars to be used on a number of transfers releasing the digital camera assistant to carry out different duties.
The software program is launching in Beta for Mac computer systems beginning as we speak, and customers can join it on OWC’s web site.
