PROMISE Technology & XTREM PRODUCTIONS

BACKGROUND

The 24 hours of Le Mans is so thoroughly associated with the concept of endurance it is almost a cliché. And now the PROMISE Pegasus line can literally make the claim of having endured the test of Le Mans in the expert hands of the Xtrem Productions crew.

If you are a motor sports fan, chances are good you have seen the work of Xtrem Productions. The French media production company specializes in creating exciting motor sports video content for television and online/social media audiences, and doing so using PROMISE Pegasus since 2014. So when PROMISE introduced the PegasusPro, Xtrem Productions was eager to put it to the test.

 

CHALLENGE

The Xtrem Productions crew has used Pegasus3 and Pegasus2 on location at the motor sports events like the FIA World Endurance Championship, European Le Mans Series , including Le Mans paired with a Mac Mini server for the on-site post-production storage setup. Ideally the crew would then be able to quickly transfer the footage to a high performance storage solution capable of being used for editing by multiple stations simultaneously. That’s where the PegasusPro R16 comes in.

SOLUTION

For the 24 hours of Le Mans video, the PegasusPro R16 enabled four MacBook Pro editing stations connected via SANLink 10GB adapters to work as fast as if the data were stored locally. The key difference of course is that all the data used could be stored safely on the PegasusPro R16 protected by PROMISE RAID redundancy. The convenience of 10G RAID NAS plus a ThunderboltTM 3 connection to the administrator create workflow efficiency that could not be realized prior to this game changing system.

Installation and setup was a simple procedure as well. The administrator can setup the R16 via ThunderboltTM 3 or Ethernet connection using an easily installed application. The administrator can then use the default settings or customize users and folders as desired. A user application is installed on the client systems which then ask for access from the administrator. Once this is done, no further configuration is required, it is ready to use.
