Kylie Flavell Relies on PROMISE Technology and HP to Overcome the Pressure of Filming and Editing on the Road

Filmmaker and Travel TV Host Works with PROMISE Pegasus2 and HP Z Workstations to Simplify and Accelerate her Workflow

HSINCHU, Taiwan, and SON, The Netherlands – September 3, 2015Kylie Flavell is a filmmaker, editor, producer and travel TV host whose shows have aired in 68 countries across networks such as National Geographic and Discovery.  With her equipment strapped to her back, Kylie sets out to capture incredible experiences every day that show the beauty of people and places all around the world.  Kylie operates as a one-girl production company and works wherever possible, which means she needs a stable and portable workflow to help her work more efficiently.  The solution was found by leveraging Thunderbolt™ 2 solutions, including PROMISE Pegasus2 and HP Z Workstations.

HP and PROMISE are leading providers of solutions with Thunderbolt 2 for the media and entertainment market. Creative professionals can build amazing editing systems with Thunderbolt 2 solutions from HP and PROMISE that deliver outstanding performance for even the most demanding projects.  Kylie edits all of her content in Adobe® Premiere® Pro with the HP Z820 Workstation and PROMISE Pegasus2 R6 and M4 hardware RAID storage.

The Thunderbolt 2 connectivity of HP Z Workstations and PROMISE Pegasus2 is ideally suited to storing and editing SD, HD, 2K and 4K video with Premiere Pro. The solutions can handle the required capacity and performance requirements for creation, production, and distribution at higher bandwidths and they help Kylie simplify and accelerate her workflow so she can go full throttle and finish the project in time without worrying about waiting around.

“Since I’ve been using the HP Z820 Workstation and PROMISE Pegasus2 workflow I’ve dramatically reduced my post production time and saved my footage safely without the stress of fearing I may lose months of footage from filming in countries all over the world,” said Flavell.  “Thanks to the performance of Thunderbolt 2, I can edit quickly and efficiently before I jump on another flight out to film in a new country.”

“Thunderbolt is all about providing creative professionals with tools that offer performance, simplicity and flexibility to help them develop amazing content,” said John van den Elzen, Managing Director, PROMISE Technology EMEA. “The combination of Pegasus2 and HP Z Workstations offers exceptionally fast connectivity which enables Kylie to push the limits of her creativity.”
