Post Production Storage

Desktop and Portable storage reaches new heights of performance, from 4K capable pocket SSD’s, to compact and large capacity desktop Thunderbolt RAID Arrays; its never been easier to provide high capacity and high performance storage for a single laptop or workstation.

 

Direct-attach storage from: G-Technology, LaCie, Sonnet Technologies, Symply

Post Production Shared Storage

Centralise your content and facilitate collaborative editing, grading and graphics. From GigE to 10GigE, 8Gb to 16Gb fibechannel, shared storage will change the way you work, with integrated Media Asset Management tools and Scalable capacioty; we can help you find the right shared storage platform for your needs; whether it’s a small workgroup or 100 users

 

Shared storage platforms from: Avid, Editshare,G-Technology, Quantum, Studio Network Solutions

Workstation Virtualisation with Nvidia GRID

High end GPU Workstations no longer need to be a static terminal. Leveraging the immense power of Tesla GPU’s, Nvidia Grid technology allows you to deploy up to 8 virtual workstations per GPU.

 

Users simply need a 5MB/s connection with good latency; and a Chrome webrowser – access full workstation experience and operation from a Tablet, Chromebook or laptop.

 

Ideal for replacing traditional rich media spaces; whilst gaining flexibility of presentation and place-of-work – with simplified localized ICT maintenance and support.

NDI and HDBaseT integration

Leverage HDBaseT and/or Network Device Interface to unify your production and post production workflows over standardized CAT6A or Fibre optic cabling.

 

The days of traditional broadcast infrastructure are rapidly being surpassed by the fliexibility, ease of deployment and ICT management of networking infrastructure – sernd uncompressed HD or 4K down a single Ethernet port; combined with Dante audio (see our audio section for more detail) and standardise your connectivity.

 

NDI and HD-BaseT products from: Newtek, AJA, JVC and Adobe.
