Sony's Optical Disc Archive System To Be Relased Next Month


Sony's next-generation Optical Disc Archive storage system will start shipping across Asia Pacific in October 2012.



Unveiled at IBC 2012, this system provides a complete archiving solution for broadcasters, motion picture companies and production houses.



Sony also announced that it is developing a new robotic library, the ODS-L10, which can contain up to two drives and a maximum of ten 1.5TB media cartridges. This means that it will be able to store up to 15TB of data, all in one 19-inch rack mount unit. Planned to be available in the beginning of 2013, the ODS-L10 will form part of a full line-up of solutions that include an even larger and expandable robotic library, currently in development and planned for release in late 2013.



In order to help develop and promote the optical disc format, Sony is working with ten leading manufacturers, including Adobe and AVID, who have all expressed their support for the archiving system.

A variety of high capacity media cartridges are available for the Optical Disc Archive system, from 300GB to 1.5TB. Each cartridge allows random file access using the Universal Disc Format (UDF) system. Optimised for ultra-long term media archiving, the cartridges have an estimated 50 year lifespan and are built to withstand changes in temperature and humidity, and resist dust and water droplets. Each cartridge has a built-in RFID to check the contents of the media with mobile devices for efficient asset management, such as cartridge loaning, stocktaking and shelf archiving.



Equipped with a USB 3.0 interface, the ODS-D55U drive unit is easy to set up. To help users organise their media assets, the ODS-D55U is equipped with Sony's management software solution, Content Manager. By automatically extracting metadata and storing it in a database, Content Manager allows users to quickly search, browse and retrieve files. The ODS-D55U drive unit with one Content Manager license will be available in the Asia Pacific market from October 2012.

Since its launch in 2010, XDCAM Archive has been adopted across the world as a powerful file-based content and archive management system for small to medium sized A/V businesses. To be released in December 2012, version 1.6 will enable users to connect XDCAM Archive to Sony's Optical Disc Archive system.

TDK has announced its support for the Optical Disc Archive system and that it will begin manufacturing disc media under license from Sony. Front Porch Digital has also announced its support of Optical Disc Archive by 2013 along with Sony's expandable robotic library and the use of Archive eXchange Format (AXF) with the Optical Disc Archive system for improved long-term protection and preservation.
