The Media Manager component of the discovery ][ Enterprise workflow provides a solution for efficient, secure media management. It eliminates the tedious and manual processes associated with identifying, processing, and tracking your media inventory and helps protect the chain of custody for all case media.
The Media Manager component handles:
Quantifying the scope of a data collection
Building a full chain of custody
Barcoding media for identification, storage & tracking
Ensuring hard drive identification and verification
Managing data copying from multiple sources and locations
Applying “set-it and forget-it” templates to reduce inconsistencies
Media Manager works seamlessly with the Enterprise Streaming workflow to copy data from media and send it through the processing, filtering, and review phases of the workflow. Media Manager allows you to monitor the status of Streaming Copy or Discovery jobs independent of your processing system.
Administrators and users tasked with overseeing case media—from initial intake through final processing—should use Media Manager. These users should be familiar with your company’s media handling processes and the cases associated with the media. In addition, Media Manager users or someone on the team should be well-versed in the use of processing and other Enterprise components in use at their site.
