Optical Disc Archive is a new generation high capacity storage system set to revolutionize video and data archiving. Sony developed the Optical Disc Archive system to help provide long-term digital data preservation and management of media assets in a way that is simple and affordable. At the core of the Optical Disc Archive system, is a cartridge housing 12 optical discs and a specialized drive unit, the ideal solution for large scale long term archiving. The drive is easy to setup and comes equipped with a USB cable and a 300GB starter media cartridge (ODC-300RE). Simply download and install the ODS-D55U Microsoft® Windows® PC or Apple® Macintosh® system driver software on a compatible workstation or laptop, connect the USB3.0 interface cable and load the cartridge media. This enables users to drag and drop files directly to the cartridge just as if it was a conventional USB external drive. To help content creation professionals manage their metadata and improve workflow efficiency, Sony has developed the Optical Disc Archive Content Manager, which is a software application (license) bundled with each drive. The Content Manager application has a simple graphical user interface with three main functions: Browse, Search and Archive.
