IBC: Bright debuts Data Manager standalone file manager

AMSTERDAM — Reno, NV-based Bright Technologies (www.4bright.com), the developer of technology for shared media, is launching Data Mover at IBC. The solution is a sequence-aware file manager designed specifically for the media and entertainment industry. Previously available only as an option for the company’s BrightDrive media file servers, Data Mover is now available as a standalone, cross-platform file manager for all workflow automation environments.
Data Mover brings high-performance, multi-threaded, sequence-aware data transfer intelligence to complex digital post processes, providing users with a secure method of handling media files. It’s optimized for fibre channel environments and has been designed for integration with today’s multi-platform workflows. It also includes full support for StorNextFS or HyperFS workflows.

Data Mover recognizes the characteristics of media files and manages them intelligently to provide optimal system performance, regardless of the hardware platforms being used. It includes a range of easy to use features, including Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux cross-platform command-lines; media-savvy sequence management regardless of transfer target; interactive and argument-based bandwidth throttling; multi-source and target transfers; advanced transfer engine control; and enhanced performance options when transferring to BrightDrive workspaces. 

Data Mover copies sequences optimized for 3D stereoscopic workflows to reduce load for workspaces. Over time, it helps to improve workspace performance by reducing data fragmentation and randomization.
