Bright Systems, Inc., developer of disk recording and data infrastructure technology, has announced that its new BrightClip intelligent data recording technology will be demonstrated at IBC 2008 (booth 7.J39) integrated with a range of best of breed digital film systems. BrightClip, which made its debut at IBC last year, has now been integrated by leading manufacturers into their products, offering extensive cost-saving and efficiency benefits to post facilities world wide.
BrightClip provides superior disk recording and media playback by overcoming the need for disk optimization which is caused when media is recorded randomly as it moves between postproduction processes. BrightClip employs advanced, highly sophisticated technology to ensure media is laid out logically onto the disks. Designed specifically for the film and video industry where multiple processes are the norm, BrightClip is a major new technology, enabling customers to achieve increased stability, better use of resources and faster project turn-around times.
â€œBrightClip brings dramatic benefits to collaborative digital postproduction workflows,â€? said Bill Robertson, general manager at da Vinci Systems. â€œThe task of disk optimization is a burden to facilities. By integrating BrightClip into our product line, we are providing customers with increased predictability and performance.â€?
â€œNo other system guarantees that file sequences and media streams are laid down in the most optimal pattern, or that multiple writers will not cause data to become interleaved, causing systems to slow down and stop working efficiently,â€? said James Brooks, Development Manager, Drastic Technologies. â€œBefore BrightClip, systems had to be ‘kludged’ together with multiple storage pools, paper access systems â€“ and a lot of waiting. With BrightClip, everything can run into the system as fast as the operators can ingest it.â€?
â€œThe uptake from leading software developers to integrate BrightClip with their products has been extremely positive, demonstrating that Bright is regarded as a true innovator in the design and development of pioneering solutions that bring real benefits to the digital community,â€? said Antony Harris, CEO, Bright Systems, Inc.
BrightClip can be set up for use with applications either direct through API, or indirect through an administrative interface. With the API, an application developer has full access to the dynamic pre-allocation functionality within their application. Alternatively, if an application is not BrightClip-enabled, an administrator can set up a watch folder to utilize the BrightClip recording technology. BrightClip files appear as normal alongside regular project and other files, making their use entirely transparent.
