TV Production Company Sees Workflow Improvement with Small Tree System

(New York, New York--October 11, 2012) Star Crossed Pictures, a New York-based TV production company, recently installed a TITANIUM8 Ethernet-based shared storage system from Small Tree to improve its editing team’s workflow.

Having been awarded several large projects, including a documentary focusing on the ongoing transformation of storied Madison Square Garden, Star Crossed Pictures required a storage solution that would allow editors immediate and simultaneous access to media files quickly and efficiently. Small Tree’s TITANIUM8, a 2U rack-mount solution configurable up to eight GbE or eight 10GbE ports and storage capacity from 16TB to 96TB, is connected to the facility’s three new iMacs, two Mac Pros and several Macbooks running Final Cut 7, providing maximum performance and flexibility.

“Before installing the TITANIUM8 system, we were saving media on portable drives and copying files as needed,” said Stephen Palgon, president of Star Crossed Pictures. “As the size of the projects we were awarded increased, it became obvious that this was a completely inefficient way of working. The Small Tree system enables our editors to access media from wherever they are working in our facility and, more importantly, to share media easily.”

In addition to the system’s performance, a primary reason Palgon decided on the TITANIUM8 was the solution’s scalability, which offers Star Crossed Pictures an ability to upgrade to meet its changing needs.

“With our expanding roster of clients, including MSG Network, Pac 12 Network and NFL Network, it’s critical that we are equipped to meet greater demands and tighter deadlines,” Palgon continued. “The installation of TITANIUM8 gives our editing team the speed and accessibility they require today, while providing peace of mind that we’ll be able to add more storage in the future without any disruption to our workflow.
