Digital media files can come from a range of external sources and may arrive on portable USB drives, memory sticks, or internet downloads.
Kiva features multiple ‘gigabit speed’ USB 3.0 ports and two ‘10-gigabit speed’ USB 3.1 ports—all available for plugging in portable storage devices. Kiva can then quickly and efficiently import that media directly from these portable devices.
Kiva also features 10-gigabit ethernet ports for media file ingest from any network-connected location. Since the built-in media file import tools support any number of user-defined watch folders, Kiva can be easily programmed to automatically ingest all media from these networks, to free up your production staff for more important tasks.
