Digital Bedrock and axle Video Offer Integrated
Solution at NAB

Companies announce partnership for digital
preservation workflows.
Boston, MA — Digital Bedrock, an affordable, secure digital preservation service that
protects and keeps digital assets evergreen, and axle Video, the leader in radically simple
media management software, are announcing that axle has developed an export
tool supporting Digital Bedrock’s new service. 
Priced at $195, it allows “one-click” export from axle 2017 software and
the axle Gear software-appliance to Digital Bedrock’s concierge archiving
service.  From the intuitively designed
export tool interface, assets (along with their metadata) can be selected using
axle’s Approval button, and batch-exported in a file format that can be read
directly by Digital Bedrock, for long-term, managed preservation.

Sam Bogoch, CEO of axle Video, said “This is an ideal solution
for customers who want a radically simple user interface to archiving and
digital preservation, without having to worry about engineering the back end of
the system. Digital Bedrock’s high-touch business model is very consistent with
the way we approach customer support at axle, so we can be confident our joint
customers will have a good experience.”

The integration means that small and midsize teams working
with valuable video content can seamlessly export metadata about that content
to Digital Bedrock’s service, along with the files themselves.  The media and metadata are then brought into
Digital Bedrock’s workflow and managed from there.  “We’re thrilled to be working with axle Video
and their prestigious roster of clients and partners worldwide,” said Digital
Bedrock founder Linda Tadic.  “Performing
full, managed digital preservation is a complex and costly endeavor for most
organizations. Digital bits degrade, formats and software become obsolete, hard
drives crash, and files are destroyed, lost, or hacked.  At Digital Bedrock, we act as the client’s
staff and infrastructure, so the client has no need to hire or train staff in
digital preservation functions, license software, or pay for infrastructure or
high capital expenditures. Digital Bedrock was developed to do that work for
clients so their funds and time can be spent on their core business. Clients
provide their files to us, and we do the rest.”
Digital Bedrock’s staff interface with clients, so a client
knows the people working with them. It is much more than anonymous Cloud-based
data storage. Clients are provided with custom tools to help them select which
digital content to preserve, to access and audit their assets at any time, and
to implement a long-term preservation plan.
Each company will be reselling the other’s products to its
clients starting at NAB, and the joint workflow will be demonstrated in the
axle Video (SL13609) and Digital Bedrock (SL15516) booths throughout the show.
