Robotic Bulk Tape Ingest


At Ortana, we understand that regardless of the use case, the need to digitise tape content comes with a few constant requirements – digitise it as quickly as you can, without sacrificing accuracy or quality, for the least cost possible. Often seen as conflicting – it can be difficult to find a solution that delivers on all these needs.

Through our own extensive experience of digitising tape libraries in a wide range of environments, the Cubix Robotic Bulk Ingest solution allows you to scale quickly and cost effectively, whilst ensuring the same or higher accuracy of capture.

Built using the Cubix MAM & Orchestration platform – it natively integrates with Sony™ Flexicarts, VTRs and Telestream™ Pipelines to allow for true 24x7x365 operations.

Our configurable workflows ensure that the process of preparation, capture and onward processing can be easily tailored to meet the exact requirements of your media supply chain – whether than be your own MAM or one of the many portal solutions provided by Cubix.

Robotic Bulk Tape Ingest


The solution is able to support three different methods of capture (in all cases channel conditions monitored);

Crash Capture – where the whole tape is captured from head to loss of servo lock for a configured period.
Timecode – where the whole tape is captured from head to loss of servo lock for a configured period.
In Point Only – where an in point is provided – and the capture continues until a loss of servo lock occurs for a configured period.

This ensures the right method can be selected to provide the maximum efficiency for your content types.
