Keep your media accessible

Still storing your old footage on tapes in a cabinet somewhere? Nothing inherently wrong with that, but how do you keep track of the content you have? With our digital archiving solution, you can build a digital archive with all source material archived safely, while keeping preview versions and metadata accessible and searchable. By implementing multiple storage solutions using our Hybrid Cloud stack, we can arrange a wide variety of archive solutions to meet your needs.

Step 1

Storage setup

Automatically provisioned by MediaLab or bring your own. Connect to existing storage or start from scratch with an empty bucket. Get in touch to discuss more advanced configurations. A good foundation is half the work!

Step 2

Choose your tier

Choose for Hot, Cold or Archive (Glacier) storage. MediaLab will automatically move data to the desired tiers during the archive and restore processes.

Step 3

Index media (optional)

When using a storage container or bucket that already holds content, you can instruct us to index your existing assets. These will become visible in the folder structure inside your MediaLab environment. Optionally, MediaLab can automatically transcode proxy files for online previews (storage tier permitting).

Step 4

Select media

Select the media you want to archive, easily within your trusted MediaLab environment.

Step 5

Send to archive

Press Archive to start an archive action on a file or folder. The source files will be send to the archive storage if necessary and the correct storage tier will be set.

Step 6

Restore and download

Restore an archived item? Not a problem! Simply press restore, wait for the process to complete and download the source file via your regular MediaLab environment.

Compatible with your existing tech stack

We take pride in the accessibility and flexibility of our platform. One of the reasons we're so flexible is our seamless integration with different storage solutions.

By offering cloud integration for our archiving, you can keep using your regular MediaLab interface and you can still generate share links, play back the preview versions and search on the metadata that has been added. It integrates seamlessly as a folder in your account, so it can be secured using our regular user- and group permissions.
