SGL will also highlight improvements to its FlashNet Infinity User Interface.

The latest version of the SGL's FlashNet content management system will be on display in Las Vegas. New features include enhanced disaster recovery with new tools that enable multiple sites to stay in sync with each other, even when every site is running its own production processes, integrated Amazon Cloud Archiving, and support for Sony’s Ci cloud-based media sharing and collaboration service.

SGL will also highlight improvements to its FlashNet Infinity User Interface. Infinity delivers a toolset for archive and restore functionality, system health, monitoring, and analysis. New features include a navigator tool to explore the set of archived assets in their original folder format, support for watch folder projects, advanced metadata support, and capacity analysis. FlashNet is available as a free upgrade to all SGL FlashNet users covered by a current support contract who are running FlashNet 6.6 or later.

There are also revisions to the FlashNet Watch Folder Service. The service now manages projects, offers efficient Incremental Archiving, monitors vast numbers of watch folder files and supports Mac and camera storage workflows. There is also support for Sony’s latest optical disk system, the ODS 2. FlashNet’s ODS 2 support provides speeds that approach 2Gb/sec writing and 1Gb/sec reading, as well as support for AXF.
