Barry-Wehmiller implements Quantum's StorNext workflow for greater collaboration

Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) has deployed Barry-Wehmiller´s StorNext Pro studio as the storage foundation of its corporate video production workflow, the company said.

StorNext solution enables faster creation of 4K and other video content and more efficient, cost-effective collaboration

The size of files involved has grown larger, the video team struggled with an aging corporate-IT-supplied NAS system that had difficulty supporting all the traffic on a busy network. The system lacked the power and capacity needed for a high-resolution, multi-stream, edit-in-place video production workflow.

StorNext is optimized for collaborative workflows, enabling faster and more cost-effective creation, management, processing and delivery of content. Powered by Quantum´s StorNext 5 platform, the media workflow solution includes the company´s new Xcellisâ„¢ Workflow Director and 48TB of high-performance QXS storage connected to dedicated Fibre Channel fabric.

With the high-speed file sharing provided by Quantum workflow storage, multiple editors on the video production team can view and work on the same files at the same time at full resolution — including multiple streams of 4K footage –decreasing the time required to complete projects. Typical projects that previously took 60 days are now often finished in 25-30 days.

Quantum provides scale-out storage, archive and data protection. The company´s StorNext 5 platform powers modern high-performance workflows, enabling real-time collaboration and keeping content accessible for future use and re-monetization.
