WE WERE A BIT WORRIED ABOUT
AN ALL-FLASH SYSTEM COSTING
TOO MUCH FOR A MEDICAL PRACTICE THEIR
SIZE – BUT NEXSAN CAME IN AT THE RIGHT PRICE THAT FITS THEIR BUDGET . years ago and that ’ s what motivated Endemol Shine North America to look for a solution that would streamline their processes and save them a significant amount of labour and time in production . Endemol Shine North America developed a business model around a file-based workflow to give them the ability to have all of the camera masters available online , at the same time .
After a thorough review guided by a leading solutions provider in the media and entertainment space , Endemol Shine North America selected Nexsan as it met its criteria of affordability , stability and solid support . In addition , Endemol Shine North America was impressed with Nexsan ’ s market reputation , particularly its well-known engineering prowess . Avid was selected for the file-based workflow .
Alex Palatnick , Vice President , Post Production , Endemol Shine North America , said : “ We developed a series of simplified file-based workflows over the years which have always relied upon top-notch stable equipment to support it . Nexsan has served as a critical element of this infrastructure .”
Continuous innovation
Endemol Shine North America ’ s first highdensity storage array was a Nexsan E-Series 60 ( E60 ) with 80TB , which is still used and still running perfectly today .
“ Since our initial purchase , Nexsan and its product family have done nothing but evolve and continue to innovate ,” Palatnick continued , “ So , recently , when we required a solution that would also provide even greater throughput and bandwidth , we partnered with QSR Systems and together we agreed that Nexsan should be the first place we look . We knew it would be our best choice from a feature , functionality and ROI standpoint . And , while we did our homework and researched other potential options , Nexsan Unity stood out from its competitors .”
Since the Nexsan Unity deployment , the four Nexsan E60s with over 1PB have been aggregated at the subsidiary site 51 Minds and the Nexsan Unity at ½ PB is now serving as the backbone of the entire post-production network at the corporate site . �
