Catalina

Catalina

Motion imagery media engine

Our open and extensible server-side software powers your metadata-rich media processing, storage, exploitation and dissemination operations. Catalina works with the rest of our software suite and can easily be used on its own or in conjunction with other media processing, storage and exploitation systems.

Capture

Connect to any video and metadata source to collect, index, and record mission-critical media and metadata. Catalina uses a wide range of media formats, codecs and standards to collect pertinent information from any source, accurately store and index that data, and make it available for easy query through its WSDL interface.

Improve

Use a vast array of computer vision and metadata processing capabilities to extract, improve, edit or delete information contained in your media or metadata. Catalina ensures that the data products from your system contain the best information possible.

Serve

Disseminate your data as files or streams or access them directly through our SOAP and REST WSDLs using your own systems and software. When paired with TacitView, you have a complete data processing, visualization and editing system.

Scale

Catalina is designed and built for capability. A single Catalina can easily handle dozens of simultaneous feeds and operations, and additional Catalina instances can be deployed to support co-located scaling or distributed operations. Using built-in federation capabilities, you can access your data and mine information across several Catalina nodes.

Secure

Catalina is an enterprise level media management system that uses SSL and certificate based security protocols and methods, combined with support for external LDAP user, role and permissions to control access to capabilities and data. Catalina can be administered through our web-based administrative interface, or you can design and build your own thick or thin client interface to control Catalina through its WSDL.

Expand

Insitu has invested heavily in the design of a scalable and extensible architecture that allows us and our customers to extend the capabilities of our software. We enable you with the API and documentation to write your own new capabilities to work in real-time or as a batch process within Catalina, or you can contract our Solutions team to help. Either way, customizing Catalina to your system is straight-forward and does not require re-writing software.
