KYNO by Lesspain Software is a Media Management App used by professionals in the media, entertainment & non-media industry as a media storage browser, player, logging and metadata tool, multi-purpose production assistant, file organiser and converter.

Archiware P5 Archive is a powerful archiving tool that migrates files off fast but costly online storage to the archive storage of choice, be it LTO tape, cloud or disk. Especially when combined with LTO tape, P5 Archive unleashes its full potential, offering features such as tape cloning to create a second copy for safe, offsite storage and that much-needed air gap, and drive parallelisation for even higher throughput.

Archiving from the KYNO interface

KYNO ́s integration with P5 Archive creates a solution with outstanding power and simplicity. Online and offline storage can now be used in production with similar ease of use. Finalised productions can migrate to the long-term archive from within the KYNO interface. Archive can be on either disk, tape or cloud storage. This makes LTO tape, the most economic storage for long-term archive, available from KYNO. 

All completed productions are kept safe and in reach for re-use, reference and monetisation of any kind. Customisable metadata fields and menus of P5 Archive can be used to build an individual metadata schema for specific searches. Thumbnails and proxy clips support visual browsing of all archived media.
