Model Details

Multichannel portable minimal capturing solution for Migration on the go!

The Alteran Technologies ViTaDi mini-AutoPack breaks new ground by creating the ultimate on-location capture solution.

Roll the ViTaDimini mini-AutoPack into a room with VTR’s and the appropriated storage solution, set it all up, then you will be capturing using any of the standard supported formats. The system can also be used with the ViTaDi-Robo, which is a portable robotic tape loading solution.

The ViTaDi mini-AutoPack comes complete with custom configurable computer and multi-channel capturing solution. In addition, the mini AutoPack can plug into a pre-existing digital asset management solution or fiber/ethernet based SAN.

The Vitadi mini-AutoPack is not expendable to multiple connected system.


miniAutoPack Features:

- 4 Channel video Ingest

- Standard 422 serial machine control

- Post capture confidence monitoring

- Capturing software

- Light-weight portable case for traveling

- Comes pre-configured with network capabilities

Additional Detailed Information:

Introduction of Alteran Technologies:

The Alteran Technologies product offering is an affordable, scalable video migration solution that enables the automated digitization of video content. This solution is designed to organize and control rapid video migration. Using a complex and proprietary database backbone, the solution can ingest over 64 channels of content at a single time, which makes it one of the most efficient in the industry today.
   This customizable turnkey solution targets high-volume encoding of videotapes to digital file formats, which allows for accessibility to searchable digital archives and asset management systems.

Alteran Technologies’ automated robotic hardware/software video migration solution, ViTaDi, combines with the Telestream’s Pipeline™ network encoder to automate the process of simultaneously capturing and digitizing multiple videotapes and encoding them in real time to digital video files. Telestream’s Episode® Engine works in tandem with ViTaDi and Pipeline to begin transcoding the video files to additional formats while they are being encoded. The result is an extremely rapid and efficient means to capture, transcode, and deliver video in multiple video/audio file formats to media servers, digital archives and asset management systems.
