YoYottaID software application for secure file copy with checksum and verification with full library functions and notifications.

Easy 3 Step Import

  1. Select Media Source
  2. Setup Backup Destinations
  3. Start Import

It’s even quicker next time you use that media as YoYottaID remembers your Backup destinations and folders.

Simple Media Management

YoYotta’s software runs on Apple Mac hardware. On a production use a MacMini or Retina MacBook Pro. Use an iMac or MacPro in a cutting room or post house. Connect using USB3 and Thunderbolt to RAID storage and video I/O. Receive Alerts, create a PDF Report, ensure file permissions are set correctly.

Fast and Secure

As soon as camera cards or drives are connected they will appear on the left in the Media table. All drives are mounted read-only preventing accidental erasure. YoYottaID calculates an MD5 checksum whilst copying and then verifies against this without any slowdown. When completed the green ticks show that all is correct and a PDF report will keep an audit of the files copied.

Multiple Media Back Ups

Cards can be copied to multiple Backup destinations simultaneously. Copy multiple cards at once. Limited only by the speed of connected storage. Stop an import and pickup later.

Organise Your Media

YoYottaID can make consistent folders based on Project, Day, Date, Camera and Media names. This will make life easy throughout your project.


YoYottaID creates a PDF report and this can be automatically emailed to you without needing to setup any email software. The report contains the media checksums for future reference. With the optional YoYottaID Library module all activity and metadata including checksums is logged online for future reference.

Selective Import

The client brings their slow USB2 drive into your Post House. You need all the DPX and ArriRAW files in your grading suite right now. The trouble is the files are all over the drive and there are loads of other file types that you don’t need.
When you connect a drive YoYottaID will show all the file types. Select the ones you need and YoYottaID will quickly transfer just those. They won’t just be dumped into one folder, the original folder structure will be preserved on the destination. Also YoYottaID knows about sidecar files, so for example if you select MOV you will also get THM, if you select R3D you will also get RMD.
