Baystor Introduces Two Storage and Retrieval Solutions

Designed to economize asset management for the broadcast industry (February 09, 2005)

Baystor launches two new products designed to economize asset management for the broadcast industry. These products complement the already-popular BK-2500 DVD burning system, which retains original timecode, closed captions, metadata and vertical blanking data to industry standard optical discs. The new products being unveiled at NAB 2005 in Baystors booth #SL4552 are listed below, and can be easily added to existing station environments by connecting them via a Gigabit LAN.

BK-1500 Playback Only Unit. With an MSRP under $5,000.00 Baystors new playback-only unit facilitates retrieval of assets stored on DVD. Use the BK-1500 to play back assets while archiving others on the BK-2500 recorder. With built-in RS-422 and frame accuracy, DVDs are guaranteed to operate the same as tape, preserved with original timecode, CC and VBI. A built-in 40 GB hard drive and programmable playback allows this unit to be used as a video server.

Closed Caption Teletext Search Software. Locating assets that reside on your network is easy with Baystors innovative search software. Just like an Internet search, users can type in a keyword or phrase and instantly see the timecode In & Out locations and keyframe of the clip containing that phrase. This software will search assets that reside anywhere on the network of BK-2500s and within the BK-1500 player. Once the original clip is located, you can play it back, copy it to a DVD, schedule it for playback or transfer it directly into your editing system, all without generation loss.

Baystors innovations will be a welcome relief for facilities with large libraries of deteriorating tapes. Storing assets on DVD is the most economical way to archive aging video. With Baystors innovations archiving has become more reasonable and locating clips on the network has been streamlined.
