Workflows are evolving as producers, large and small, are utilizing the full range of tools available to create compelling stories. Whether they’re a post-production facility focused on motion design or a broadcaster delivering election results, collaboration and speed are core workflow requirements. The adoption of high resolution content has increased editorial flexibility, allowing visual effects and compositing teams to enrich the visual experience. At the same time, producers are managing a wider range of ingest sources, meaning editors have more content to draw upon. With all this increased complexity, storage solutions must meet demands for speed and capacity while remaining open and reliable.

At Sports Video Expo, you’ll see a variety of attendees from broadcasters to post production professionals. Content creators come to the show to learn more about the newest trends, hear from industry leaders and review the latest technology. It is an opportunity to check out the latest solutions designed to fulfill and surpass the demanding requirements of the media industry.

Selecting the appropriate storage architecture can be daunting. Quantum’s StorNext Pro Solutions, introduced earlier this year, have set the bar for simplifying the acquisition and implementation of collaborative storage for professional media facilities – regardless of scope or scale.  In fact, that is the beauty of the solutions. They have been designed with the unique needs of post-production or broadcast facilities in mind. They address a wide range of needs from the high performance and capacity requirements of 4K, to the streamlined refresh of Xsan environments.

At SVExpo, Quantum is excited to introduce the latest addition to the StorNext Pro family – StorNext Pro Foundation! Independent production facilities may not require petabyte scale capacity but they still have deadlines necessitating a collaborative, high-performance storage network.

StorNext Pro Foundation is designed for these smaller, collaborative production teams of up to seven users. It is fully integrated around the StorNext 5 file system software and comes in either 48TB or 96TB configurations. We’ve included redundant components for continuous operation, as well as StorNext Storage Manager for policy based file migration.

Quantum knows that productivity is critical, and one part of that is the ease of deployment and use of StorNext Pro Foundation. We get it – smaller organizations often do not always have a full time administrator to focus on their technology environment. StorNext Connect streamlines the installation of StorNext software with a self-guided interface. A single user interface also enables software downloads and StorNext client or server upgrades. With the ability to discover, manage and monitor the entire StorNext environment, not only are deployments faster and easier, but small teams will find it easier to proactively identify potential problems and resolve them before they interrupt productivity.

If you’re at Sports Video Expo, join us to see these solutions in action and let us help you define the collaborative storage solution designed for your workflow environment.
