Ferry machines go virtual
19. August 2013 04:25
In order to ease and speed up the installation of new ferry background processing computers and new DVA-Profession installations, we are currently working on moving the ferry setups into Linux-KVM based virtual machines. The current VM-host is running on Debian 7, and the benchmarks look very good so far: There seems to be no noticeable performance loss due to virtualization. We are currently working on 2 setups in parallel:
- Classic setup with Debian 6
- New setup with Debian 7

Recently, DVA-Profession was installed the the museum of modern art (mumok) in Vienna. They are planning to use it for preserving their analogue video collection which is now mostly on VHS, Beta-tapes and DV. Their current long-term storage format of choice is FFv1/PCM in an AVI container.
Using FFv1 in Adobe Premiere

Since we've been using the "FFv1" lossless video codec throughout our whole workflow - From capture to archive - we're always happy to hear of additional applications and use-cases where FFv1 is used.
In case you want to use "Adobe Premiere" for editing video, you can install "LAVFilters", which provide FFv1 encoding/decoding as DirectShow filter. That's basically it: Now you can import/edit/export FFv1 lossless video with Adobe Premiere :)
