Focus Enhancements debuts entry-level MAM system

Focus Enhancements, a specialist in media management and Ultra Wideband (UWB) wireless technology, has announced the PX-1, an entry-level addition to its ProxSys family of media asset management (MAM) solutions.

Shown at NAB2007, the company said its PX-1 was the industry's first entry-level, turnkey MAM system that integrated both hardware and software into an easy-to-setup, easy-to-use digital media asset solution.

Designed to service small- to medium-sized organizations, the PX-1 allows digital media professionals to assign time code-based metadata to their HD or SD video content, which, when combined with its proxy preview, enables fast search and retrieval. Through the PX-1's Web browser interface, users can create projects and containers from which content can be copied, transferred, shared or deleted.

The PX-1 can simultaneously manage up to 10 concurrent users connected anywhere in the world. It supports nearly all SD and HD video formats, popular graphic and audio formats, as well as many data formats, including PowerPoint and Word documents.

Also included with the PX-1 is the Focus Enhancements Capture Suite and Media Import software. With this client-based software, users can capture live video, import existing digital media folders and files or seamlessly import video content from Focus digital disk recorders and/or the Panasonic P2 MXF format while preserving all native metadata.
