(Oakdale, Minnesota--March 18, 2013) Small Tree, the video editing shared storage experts, will be showcasing its enhanced GraniteSTOR TITANIUM8 and 16 models at NAB 2013 (Booth SL6005). TITANIUM is a high performance, capacity dense, dedicated video editing shared storage appliance with advanced file sharing capabilities enabling simple, real-time collaboration. The improved model is already available for purchase.
An “all-in-one” system with a budget-friendly price, TITANIUM offers extreme flexibility, supporting a wide range of performance and capacity requirements. Professional video editors with limited IT resources can focus on editing video, not on managing the infrastructure supporting their workflow.
TITANIUM16 is a 3U rack-mount solution configurable up to 20 GbE or 12 10GbE ports and storage capacity from 32TB to 320TB, while delivering up to 72 streams of ProRes 422. TITANIUM8 is a 2U rack-mount solution configurable up to 10 GbE or 8 10GbE ports and storage capacity from 8TB to 96TB, while delivering up to 35 streams of ProRes 422. Both systems work seamlessly with popular editing software such as Final Cut Pro, Adobe Creative Suite and Avid.
TITANIUM is built on a customized open source operating system that was designed to be easy-to-use, feature rich and reliable, while providing exceptionally robust performance. Storage can be made available to users within minutes of initial start up and the powerful and convenient Web-based GUI makes management of the system straightforward and simple. TITANIUM supports file and volume replication as well as tape backup. By using a Web-based browser, TITANIUM can be managed from anywhere with an Internet connection, providing optimal convenience to post-production professionals facing tight deadlines.
Storage, file server and networking are all contained in the TITANIUM chassis, which means users can connect an editing workstation directly to the system with no other networking equipment required. If additional editing workstations are required, a Small Tree switch is easily integrated with the new system. As a result of its tremendous flexibility, TITANIUM is ideal for any post-production environment, whether it’s in the studio, at home, in a mobile production truck or on a remote shoot requiring on-site video editing.
“In today’s fast moving and ever changing post-production environment, it is absolutely critical that shared storage provides the best balance of capacity, performance, ease of use and cost to minimize expenditures,” said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. “The continued growth of the TITANIUM family demonstrates our commitment to delivering systems that do exactly that - give post-production professionals high performance shared storage solutions that provide flexible options at less cost.”
The upgraded TITANIUM8 and 16 are currently available for delivery worldwide.
