Al3xa Data Manager is an application designed to help you better manage your data workflow. With the terabytes of data that you will create with your ALEXA system, Al3xa Data Manager helps to step in, making sure copies of each MOV file go to the right place, and accurately.
Al3xa Data Manager helps to speed up your on-set workflow. Now you can make multiple copies of each MOV file at the same time to different destinations. No need to copy once, then copy elsewhere. Simply mount your ALEXA MEDIA and hit the start copy button. Your data will instantly go to all the destinations you have setup. No sitting waiting for multiple copies, and no single point of failure.
Copies Made Safely
Make sure that the data from your ALEXA MEDIA is truly unique, and if not, make it unique! We've run into times when the Alexa camera accidentally creates folders with identical names to previous shots (either due to human error or computer fault). With Al3xa Data Manager, it will alert you to any such situation and by default create a new folder to safely store that data in. If you know its a duplicate shot, you can always override the program.
Copies Made Correctly
Al3xa Data Manager helps to ensure that the data you read from your ALEXA MEDIA is the same data you have throughout your post process. With the terabytes of information you will create, its very easy for a digital zero or one to get misplaced, not to mention hard drive failures and overwrites. Any one of these issues can lead to a failure of your MOV files. We overcome this by creating checksums right off the card and passing those through the copy process. If one byte of data is missing you will know about it.
No matter what platform you currently use to backup and archive your MOV files with, the checksums created by Al3xa Data Manager are platform independent. So you can use the Mac version on set, the Windows version in editorial and know that the checksums will still match. In fact, because these checksum types are industry standards, you can be confident that you can use them years down the road.
