(Oakdale, Minnesota--August 24, 2012) To meet the ongoing demand for affordable, robust and versatile video editing shared storage systems, Small Tree is introducing the GraniteSTOR TITANIUM4 storage system. GraniteSTOR TITANIUM products provide affordable, all-in-one Ethernet-based shared storage solutions for professional video editors requiring shared access to media files whether it’s in their home studio or on the road.
A four-drive system supporting 2TB, 3TB or 4TB disk drives, TITANIUM4 starts at $7,345. The appliance’s unique design enables video editors with limited resources to focus on editing video projects, and not on trying to locate critical files off portable storage drives, to help improve workflow efficiency.
Equally effective in studios or on the move with a mobile production crew, TITANIUM4 is simple to set up and manage, and the storage is available within minutes of start up. TITANIUM4 is configurable from 8TB to 16TB of storage capacity, while driving up to 9 streams of ProRes 422. The new system offers extreme mobility and supports popular editing software such as Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer and Adobe Creative Suite, while enabling Windows, Linux, Macintosh and Unix clients to share media files. As a result, post-production professionals can rest easy knowing that no matter what software or platform they are working from, Small Tree’s latest system will work seamlessly in their environment.
“Mobile post-production teams face tight deadlines, so making sure editors have immediate and simultaneous access to files is critical,” said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. “TITANIUM4 is a highly portable, robust solution for editing teams on the go. At the arena, on the slopes or at the beach, TITANIUM4 is ideal for helping you edit your raw footage immediately while still on-site.”
TITANIUM4 supports both file and volume replication. By using a Web-based browser, the system can be managed from anywhere with an Internet connection, providing optimal convenience to post-production professionals facing tight deadlines. Additionally, storage, file server and networking are all contained in the TITANIUM4 chassis, which means users can connect an editing workstation directly to the system with no other networking equipment required.
