Post Production & Broadcast – tuned in to your challenges
Higher resolution (4K, 5K, 6K, 8K) ingest and capture means storage capacity requirements will continue to grow and higher performance technologies are needed. These larger file sizes mean rendering, compositing, coloring, and editing require significant bandwidth, and can increase workload productivity time spans - making it hard to meet deadlines.
As rich media continues to shift towards higher resolution images and video, customers must deploy storage systems that are equipped to handle the delivery of video streaming and content distribution of media at higher bandwidth. And let’s not forget that this growing amount of content will need to be backed up and archived in different tiers depending on access requirements for the most efficient data lifeycle management.
House of Worship - broadening sermon and worship reach
Houses of Worship seek to find ways to broaden sermons to wider audiences, but may have constraints in production staff, or storage bandwidth issues for housing or streaming such media. Further, weekly sermons, training, worship, conferences, or concerts all require content creation and delivery technologies.
Promise also addresses the different needs of different size churches, from a small, community-based house of worship, to nationally recognized “Megachurches.” Add in the growing popularity of web streaming as an exciting, cost-effective way to reach more parishioners, and you have a market as unique and varied, as there are religions! For all your rich media needs, the Pegasus2 and VTrak A-Class offer flexible solutions for single users, multi-users, and multi-viewers.
Sports – moving at the speed of the games
Sports venues at different locations require a means to capture, catalogue, edit and distribute footage for content management. Moving game to game requires mobile truck staffing and portable cameras. At the same time, higher resolution sports require more storage, but most portable storage solutions don’t have the speed and capacities necessary. Pegasus2 offers solutions starting at portable 2TB SSD and 4TB HDD capacities and up to 48TB desktop configurations that can be transported in mobile trucks. More importantly, these products feature the speed and performance you need.
As sports footage is increasingly shot in HD and 4K for animations, effects, and slow motion replay studio processing bandwidth will be severely impacted, in terms of time and delivery. VTrak A-Class is optimized for high bandwidth video editing and can easily double the bandwidth of an editing studio.
Education – learning about the need for easy, basic storage
Classrooms are increasingly using video for education capture and curriculum. They require small-scale storage that can be managed by classrooms. And of course, as budgets are always an issue, all solutions must be both cost-effective and reliable. The Pegasus2 solutions are portable for individual desktop or classroom use. For more robust needs, the VTrak A-Class can be shared in a classroom setting as a digital locker.
Now that more and more classrooms are online, infrastructure is needed to support that curriculum made online for more student access. The VTrak A-Class can scale out to store rich media content with student permission access control. This access can be onsite or remote.
It all starts with fast, high-capacity storageVTrak A-Class provides shared storage that can ingest and capture in post production workflows starting at 32TB and scaling out to over 7PB's. Pegasus2 solutions begin from 2TB SSDs or 4TB in HDD's to 48TB; each solution can then be daisy-chained up to 6 times.
Work more efficiently, with more peopleVTrak A-Class allows for multi-user simultaneous editing, thereby improving workloads from months to weeks, or from weeks to days. SANLink2 adapters directly connect Pegasus2 workloads to VTrak for multi-user collaboration. And Pegasus2 Thunderbolt 2 desktop RAID storage can offload 4K footage from cameras at over 1300MB/s. So what used to take hours, now takes just minutes.
High-bandwidth for content creation and delivery
Promise solutions offer the speed and performance that enables multiple camera capture to be offloaded to a Pegasus and edited simultaneously from a VTrak A-Class. Streaming content can be distributed by the VTrak A-Class once rich media is edited and transcoded. VTrak A-Class shared storage appliances and VTrak x30 RAID storage subsystems can also be tiered for primary and secondary storage, or for backup and archiving needs and digital asset management.
