Square Box Updates CatDV Pro

Version 3.0.1 gets bug fixes, performance improvements By Dave Nagel
Square Box Systems has released CatDV Pro 3.0.1. Version 3.0.1 is a free update to the asset management software designed for video logging and cataloging. It's available now for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

CatDV Pro 3.0 is a cross-platform utility for managing video assets. It catalogs video clips with thumbnails, low-resolution previews and metadata annotations. It uses automatic shot detection for logging and can import and export EDLs from several video editing applications. With the optional CatDV Workgroup Server, users can share catalogs via a centralized, searchable database.

The new version offers bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as a newly revised user manual. Other improvements include:

  • Live capture improved;
  • Addition of an uncompressed audio option for compatibility with Final Cut Pro's OfflineRT codec;
  • New buffering for minimizing dropped frames;
  • New Verbatim Logger.

CatDV Pro 3.0 costs $275 and is available for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows. The update is free for users of version 3.0. For more information, visit
