MDV

Free Media Management Tool for AVID Systems

MDV is a tiny app. It allows you to dig in and access all those hidden MXF/OMF file attributes AVID has implemented in its internal database management system. Once you have identified the projects and files associated with them - then you can move them into a folder for archival purposes.
You can deal not only with files/names , but with Bins! Put some media into your bin and feed it to MDVx - and you'll get the complete file list with the referenced files. MXF and OMF media works out of the box. Currently developing AMA support...

  1. Hello,
    Recently we moved to Avid Interplay environment.
    Is your software supports retrieving materials from that environment?

    Thanks in advance,

    1. Yes. This app can retrieve media from any mounted drive – it might be a physical drive, a network drive, a virtual one etc..
