Avid Interplay Web Services Plug-in

Cost-Effective Archiving

SGL’s Interplay Web Service Plug-in powered by Glookast offers highly cost-effective “Drag and Drop” archiving from within Interplay | Access, using Interplay watch folders, but without requiring Interplay | Archive. ISIS storage can now be managed optimally without high overheads. The Plug-in can be replaced with Avid | Interplay | Archive in the future without the need to re-archive any content.

Easy to Set Up, Cost Effective to Run

Define any Interplay folder as an archive or restore Watch Folder. When users want to archive or restore material, they drag the item into the relevant folder, and the Plug-In does the rest.

The Avid | Archive Engine and Avid | Archive Providers are not required.

All the Benefits of LTFS

Use your FlashNet-archived assets in a stand-alone editor: simply put your LTFS tape into a stand-alone editor and drag and drop files to the Avid Editor software.

Archives may also be sent to other FlashNet-configured Interplay systems. The metadata stored on the LTFS tape may be checked into the Interplay system.
