CatDV Mid Sized Enterprise Systems
Cirque Do Soleil
An example of an Enterprise scale customer Cirque Du Soleil. On a daily basis Cirque Du Soleil producers, creative directors, choreographers, marketing executives and freelance collaborators use CatDV to find and browse assets, to research old performances, plan new shows, and prepare materials for corporate communications. All of the footage, including the historic archive materials from 1984-94, is tagged with a range of labels.
They can quickly ingest, log and tag clips using CatDV Professional, and using the CatDV Web Client can easily perform searches, make playlists, create mini-assemblies and export these to Final Cut, or send us an XML for us to start the editorial.
One of the CatDV workstations is dedicated to ingest, proxy generation, logging and tagging. A CatDV Worker Node is also used to make copies and proxies of the ingested footage, and the proxies and native footage reside on the 88TB Xsan. The Cirque Du Soleil team also writes scripts for the CatDV Worker Node to copy and deliver materials to archive using Archiware PresStore and Quantum systems.
