Delivering single and multi-user access, editing, sharing, & distribution of 4K footage for Post Production and Broadcasting, House of Worship, Sports and Education environments.
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.
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 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.
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.
VTrak 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.
VTrak 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.
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.
Today's high-end camera are becoming increasingly compact for mobility. Thus, portability is now a key consideration when it comes to on-set or remote footage capture. The Pegasus2 M4 HDD/SSD provides the most portable Thunderbolt 2 solution – and it can fit in the palm of your hand. SANLink2 16G FC creates direct connectivity from Thunderbolt 2 desktops or laptops to VTrak x30 FC storage systems. Similarly SANLink2 10GBaseT provides a MacPro or HP z800 workstation direct connectivity not only to 10G storage, but directly to 10G Ethernet. SANLink2 10G SFP+ is for direct connectivity to 10G that require even further distances such as remote branches.
Pegasus3 The next generation of industry-leading Pegasus desktop RAID systems, featuring Thunderbolt™ 3 technology. Thunderbolt™ 3 provides throughput rates up to 40 Gb/s, twice the speed of Thunderbolt 2.
The VTrak J5000 Series are redundant SAS/SATA JBOD expansion units for cloud and enterprise data centers. The VTrak J5000 Series allows users to leverage the advantages of 12 Gb/s SAS technology to help optimize performance for the bandwidth intensive, high-performance requirements of enterprise level storage.
SANLink2 8G FC is a compact device that allows a Thunderbolt™ 2 host computer to directly connect to a Fibre Channel SAN. SANLink2 10GBase-T allows a Thunderbolt™ 2 host computer to directly connect to 10Gbps ethernet. SANLink2 10G SFP+ connects devices to the network via optical for remote branches and offices at greater distances at over 100 meters.
