Introduction of Square Box Systems
CatDV is a scalable, cross-platform, multimedia asset database from a UK-based software company, Square Box Systems Ltd. It handles a wide range of file types, with enhanced support for video content. CatDV includes media analysis tools and automatic scene detection to extract the metadata inherent in most media files, together with support for importing and exporting edit decision lists and other video-oriented file formats.
The software works on Mac and Windows platforms and is designed to work as a librarian, logging, and workflow improvement tool for non-linear editing systems.
The software provides a searchable catalog for the large number of multimedia file types that exist, with log notes and thumbnails available using either on-line or off-line lower resolution proxy videos. The off-line file browsing facility enables re-use in multiple projects, especially when network connectivity or bandwidth issues apply.
