Peace of mind

Missing footage means lost time, money and a lot of stress. Hedge ensures complete backups, so
you can sleep well at night.

Built for video

Offload footage lightning fast. Multiple sources to multiple destinations is a cinch, taking the hassle out of data handling.

Kick the boredom

Offloading media is as exciting as decaf coffee. Hedge automates the no-brainer tasks, reducing the time spent staring and swearing.

Features

Superfast transfers

As files get bigger and bigger, old copy-verify methods just aren’t cutting it. Hedge’s Fast Lane engine is purposely built for speed.

Superfast Transfers

Simultaneous backups

Create as many copies as you need, at the same time. Hedge transfers multiple sources to all destinations, fully utilizing your bandwidth.

Multiple backups

Keep track of everything

Keep complete track of what goes where, when and how with Transfer Logs. MHLs allow you to re-verify backups at a later moment.

Transfer Logs

Flexible storage

Hedge is just as comfortable with NAS, SAN and RAID as it is with USB or Thunderbolt disks. Working online? Upload to your cloud service, server or remote disk, with verification.

Network raid & RAID support

Expand your workflow

Have Hedge auto launch your AppleScripts and process footage to fit your specific workflow. Sort, transcode, rename, tag: it's all possible.
