Case Study: Media & Entertainment - TRANSIT
TRANSIT, a creative services agency, leverages PROMISE SANLinkTM with Mac mini for an inexpensive Xsan metadata controller
TRANSIT is an upstart and fast-growing creative services agency specializing in editorial for theatrical film advertising. Located in Santa Monica, California, TRANSIT has delivered high profile theatrical trailers and TV spots for full feature films such as Thor, Madagascar 3, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, and The Help.
When tasked with designing their next generation storage infrastructure, TRANSIT was in search of a storage solution that required support for up to 25 editors and would scale easily as new editing systems were added. Among their chief concerns were creating a collaborative environment where editors could easily share their projects in a file-based workflow, a reliable solution based on Mac OS X systems, and meeting their performance requirements all while keeping a limited budget in mind. An additional consideration was the ability to have a truly portable, work anywhere environment where any of the producers could access their assets regardless of location within the TRANSIT facility. The ease-of-use, portability and small form factor of the PROMISE SANLink fully supported this requirement.
