Unified Media Production


Meet the deadlines

If your business wants to excel with media in today’s 100% digital world, you’ll need high-performance storage and network systems in which every application can seamlessly participate to form an uninterrupted workflow. Storage to safely store and quickly retrieve huge media files; Networks that support multi-stream playback for many applications in parallel without dropping frames.  
 

Media workflow environments are only as solid as the foundation they’re built upon. This foundation will determine if deadlines are met and deliverables are finished. Central to this is the editor, who needs to have access to any video file from any editing workstation. This requires a networked file system that meets the requirements essentially for proper production.

 

The need

  • Guaranteed access to media content for every application

  • Rock-solid dependable technology, even in the most busy circumstances

  • Flexibility and linear scalability

  • SAN performance with NAS usability

  • Maximum throughput

  • Guaranteed read/write access

 

Our solution


guaranteed performance.
predictable.

WARP has been designed specifically for video workflows and has been proven in some of the world’s most demanding video environments.

It is a linearly scalable, clustered storage and computing platform to sustain real-time workflows. Its high-performance software-based file-management platform allows you to dramatically increase your workflow productivity by running applications directly on the WARP cluster.

The WARP cluster creates a unified pool of highly efficient storage, with a proven 100% storage utilization rate at a guaranteed and predictable performance. As a result, you’ll need less physical storage to hold the same amount of data - reducing capital and operating costs.

Guaranteed content access

With WARP, all applications of the video and audio workflows work on a centralized storage and have a guaranteed access to all contents. The available computing power and architecture enable parallel access to and use of media content.

ONE FLEXIBLE SOLUTION

WARP drastically improves the flexibility in your postproduction flow, by offering one solution as a foundation to tackle all challenges.

High-performance computing power

With WARP, you may run even the most demanding applications, such as e.g. real-time transcoding, directly on the high-performance computing platform.

Grow when you need it

WARP empowers you to cope with the growing demand for recording, formats and content. With WARP, you easily add nodes and storage capacity whenever you need them.

Guaranteed write/read access
