I previously haven’t heard of Avid NEXIS being used as IPDirector Nearline storage. On one of the productions we have still tried to get it to work and have partially succeeded.
An exciting story about a peculiar storage behavior causing IPDirector problems. Warning: log-reading, some programming and Powershell scripting inside!
One of our customers has been requested to uninstall certain .NET framework versions from their workstations: it had surfaced that the EVS IPDirector version that the they were running was incompatible with anything above .NET Framework 4.5.1…
This week I had a chance to work on an interesting project involving a beautiful free piece of software called Caspar CG. And we have enhanced it with metadata from EVS IPDirector!
One of our customers was often getting requests from operators to do a Nearline (network storage with media files) re-scan for them. So I went to investigate the problem!
