Pegasus is a new, premium CatDV client. It builds on the foundation of CatDV Enterprise and includes built in support for MXF and archiving plus a brand new solution for integration with Avid Media Composer. It also includes metadata support for Red Epic files. Pegasus can co-exist with CatDV Enterprise clients and is available as a stand-alone product. The product is downloadable today.
CatDV Pegasus provides a complete Avid workflow solution within CatDV. Sequences, Master Clips and Subclips can be exported to Avid Media Composer from CatDV. The CatDV AAF Tool supports import of Avid created sequences, Master Clips and Subclips. Supported media is relinked within Avid media Composer.
This allows for CatDV to collaborate with Avid Editors as never before, providing a full round trip of media and supported metadata. Logging clips and sequences can be performed outside of the Avid edit suite saving valuable time and resources. Shot lists with added meta data can then be prepared off site and then sent to the Avid NLE for editing.
Media can be ingested and transcoded using the CatDV Worker and then Pegasus can send the clips to Avid .
Master clips, subclips and sequences created in Avid Media Composer can be exported to CatDV. Supported media and metadata is imported to CatDV, the Avid MXF media is relinked and metadata available to all CatDV users.
This new tool allows for a complete ‘round trip’ workflow of media and metadata between CatDV and Avid Media Composer. Allowing CatDV to manage and search all your media assets and make them available to your Avid editors.
Clips and sequences can be simply dragged into Avid by selecting the AAF Tool icon and dropping onto any open Avid bin.
For media playback 3rd party codecs may be required
