Atempo (, a provider of cross-platform data protection and archiving solutions, has introduced several new features for Atempo Digital Archive designed to address the file archiving needs of organizations in media and entertainment markets.

These new capabilities in Atempo Digital Archive (ADA) 3.1 include the archival of complex file formats with full metadata ingestion, partial and full restoration of creative content and the ability for creative professionals to directly archive from Final Cut Pro. Together with the software’s performance, flexibility and intuitiveness, the added functions further optimize ADA as the preferred solution for customers to integrate digital archiving into the creative workflow, says Marylise Tauzia, director of Product Marketing and Management at Atempo.
Atempo Digital Archive 3.1 features the new capability to archive MXF, DPX and MOV files, three of the most widely used formats in media and entertainment organizations. The MXF file format in particular is widely adopted in creative industries as the new standard for exchanging metadata linked to audio and visual content.
Creative organizations further benefit from ADA’s new support for Final Cut Pro, Apple’s popular editing software, which gives end-users the ability to archive media assets themselves directly from the Final Cut Pro interface, says Tauzia. This integration into the creative workflow further ensures the preservation and storage efficiency of high-value data, he adds.
Atempo is providing product demonstrations of ADA 3.1 at the NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, this week. It runs natively on Mac OS X 10.4 and higher. ll components of Atempo Digital Archive offer a native Mac interface. A demo is available for download.
