Designed for video professionals, this application works with all the most popular industry video formats and compression methods, including AJA Raw, Apple ProRes, DVCProHD, HDV, XDCAM, DV, CineForm, REDCODE, Avid DNxHD, Avid DNxHR, Apple Intermediate, 16 bit RGB and RGBA, uncompressed, and more.

AJA DataCalc allows you to change settings and calculate storage requirements in a single screen with simple controls and a clear concise display. Media durations can be entered in units of days, hours, seconds, or even as precise as frames using time code mode. Clicking on results will rotate you through alternative values including KB, MB, GB or TB for storage calculations or time results in a variety of formats when in TimeCalc mode.

Summary information obtained by DataCalc can even be optionally shared via email or other iOS and iPadOS share services, and a Favorites feature allows you to save common calculations for speedy reference.

Really useful for digital preservation usage

I’ve been using this app on and off for a few years now, calculating file sizes for long term preservation storage. It’s a very useful timesaver.

In the last couple of years a large number of archives have moved preservation files to long term storage on the FFV1 codec (version 3) and it would be amazing if you could add support for this - it would be a real asset for archivists around the world.

Incredibly Useful

Just what you need if you need to calculate your storage capacity for a video project or if you need to know whether your video editing system can actually handle the data throughput for te the video codec you would like to encode. Simple to use and absolutely invaluable for the intended target audience.
