Dorna Sports S.L.
An example of one of our Pegasus scale customers is Dorna Sports S.L. who are a highly acclaimed international sports management and marketing company, headquartered in Madrid. It is the commercial rights holder for most of the world’s top motorcycle sport events.
In 2014, Dorna replaced their aging Final Cut Server system with a large scale, custom built CatDV MAM installation. Over 800,000 media assets were migrated onto a new CatDV Server in Barcelona, with the MAM database being accessed via a mix of fixed desktop and web based logging clients. Dorna Editors make extensive use of the CatDV plugin panel for Adobe Premiere, enabling the CatDV media catalogues to be searched from within Premiere and media to be imported directly into a Premiere bin for editing. Dorna archivists use the high-end CatDV Pegasus client for its enhanced rough-cut editing and logging capabilities.
A subset of the Barcelona CatDV server is installed in the Dorna Sports team post-production trackside unit. This is taken around the world to individual racing circuits, where motorcycle race footage is logged and tagged locally, before the media is then uploaded to the master CatDV Server in Barcelona. Contingency is built-in through the use of “cold stand-by” servers running copies of the master CatDV Server software.
