Question: Our students use iMovie software for our video yearbook, and we have amassed a large collection of digital video tapes that are disorganized and desperately in need of a structured index. Is any software available that can help with this need?

The IT Guy says:
iDive is a relatively inexpensive digital video cataloging software program that can provide the functionality which you and your students seek. Whether you have lots of storage capacity to digitize all your tape video or not, you can set import options to allow the creation of an index with frame samples. The current version of iDive does not allow you to import video already digitized with iMovie or Final Cut Pro, but a future upgrade of the product should add that functionality.
