Efficiency and performance is (y)our ultimate priority! 

Integrated end-to-end framework built specifically for archives

Exceptional versatility, configurability, scalability

Unparalleled logistics, operations control and efficiency

... and a lot more!

How it Works

jobDB includes all the tools needed to transfer conventional carrier-based audio and video content to digital media objects. It can be combined with any number of ingestLINE and actLINE tools and processors to build powerful systems capable of handling archive projects of any size and complexity.

jobDB Archive Workflow Management

The archive workflow management logs ALL relevant data centrally over specific NOA middleware components towards ONE central log place.

Carrier and File Ingest

jobDB systems are built to organize mass digitization of physical audio and video carriers, but also allows to import related files to be used as attachments, or even digitally born media.

General Public Path

The General Public Path (often referred to as GPP) is a centrally reachable distributed physical storage, to which only processors have read and write access and serves for inter-task file communication during the execution of a workflow.

File Delivery

Files are moved towards a CIFS share / network path / HSM including all relevant technical Metadata, scans, MD5 checksums, XML Markerlists, ...

Native Client

The native jobDB ControlCenter client gives the users access to workflow management, workflow design, to-do tasks, inventory processes, reports, mass execution of workflows, and much more...

NOA and 3rd Party Processors

A vast range of transcoders, analysis tools, simple interfaces for user decisions, and file importers are available with NOA software. On top of that, any kind of 3rd party tool based upon CMD line or scripting can be joined to the jobDB workflow engine.

jobDB API and Interfaces

An optional API allows you to connect your own interfaces, messages, and control jobDB from another workflow system.

Starting View

Simple direct access to Searches, Reports, and general overview of running tasks.


Carriers can be assigned to any Collection. An unlimited amount of Collections helps to organise archive repositories depending on their location, content, work allocation, etc.


Carriers are part of a collection and represent the physical artifact inside jobDB.


Root Parts represent the digital facsimile of a carrier and can be of several types (Ingest, Merge, Registration or Custom). Outgest Parts are segmented or unsegmented manifestations of the digital facsimile.


The currently assigned workflow is depicted here with its actual rundown state.
