Software firm DejaSoft has further expanded its Avid remote file sharing software, DejaEdit in version 3.2 to support Microsoft Azure secure storage. Another major highlight includes the safeguarding of project files with robust prior encryption before they are directed to an assigned media server chosen by the user.
DejaEdit enables multiple remote Avid editing and storage systems to synchronise files and bins with each other, securely across the internet, ensuring that editors and other contributors can collaborate using shared assets, irrespective of where they are located.
DejaSoft also provides users with multiple options for media server configurations that range from a simple turnkey approach, to using existing cloud storage accounts, or retaining the media files “in-house”. For customers looking for a turnkey set-up, DejaSoft provides its own “ready-to-go” cloud storage for the media server.
Storage provided by Amazon Web Services, Wasabi and Backblaze are all already supported in DejaEdit.
Alternatively, customers who would like to keep their media files “in-house” can configure their own media server using open source object storage software MinIO.
DejaEdit version 3.2 now allows customers to store media files to their Microsoft Azure Blob Storage account.
CTO at DejaSoft Nikolai Waldman notes, “Security of editing data is of primary importance to us. DejaEdit 3.2 now encrypts media files transparently for each project with a unique 256-bit key before they are sent to the media server. They are then decrypted after being downloaded to the client. This ensures that data saved on the media server (or if intercepted in transit) is unintelligible to unauthorised people.”
Compatible with Avid Media Composer and Avid Nexis systems, DejaEdit 3.2 will be available in early September in time for IBC which runs “virtually” this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
