Digital Vision unveiled its new Bifrost Archive Bridge at an offsite whisper suite during NAB. The system automates and streamlines the process of restoring and preserving assets and creating high quality digital media.
“Protecting and preserving assets can be an incredibly expensive and time-consuming process, in the face of which many are overwhelmed and defer the undertaking,” said Kelvin Bolah, president, Digital Vision. “Bifrost is a truly revolutionary process because it combines technical efficiencies, relatively low investment and unbelievable speed.”
The Bifrost Archive Bridge is suitable for archives of any size, comprising various workflow components that can be utilized either as a stand-alone system or integrated into existing infrastructures depending on individual requirements.
Bifrost includes an extensive web-based logging and reporting infrastructure developed by Digital Vision, which allows progress to be remotely monitored and analyzed. Features include logging and cataloging, film scanning, audio synchronization, automated restoration compatible with Thor hardware acceleration, and media management and delivery.
“Taking the first steps to protect valuable assets can be a daunting prospect. Bifrost Archive Bridge takes away that fear,” said Rob Wall, market manager, workflows and media managements, Digital Vision.
