Archion is demonstrating the high performance and broad functionality of its EditStor family of solutions with Avid and Adobe creative tools at NAB 2015.

“We are very excited to debut our most powerful shared storage product, EditStor Omni, at NAB 2015,” said James Tucci, chief technology officer of Archion. “Now, for the first time, today’s creative professionals no longer have the need for expensive and complicated SAN technology. Omni delivers tremendous performance without the need for multiple servers required to handle metadata and file system. It also surpasses the limitations of other SAN file systems on the market, such as dynamic volume expansion and performance.”
“Once again, Archion has listened closely to our media and entertainment customers and partners and has developed another innovative, cost-effective and standard-setting product,” said Reuben Lima, Archion’s chief executive officer. “Omni, meaning ‘all’, was designed to alleviate the need for multiple storage solutions within a facility and enable one single media storage server to handle all of the workflows required by today’s creative professionals.”
The latest and the most powerful addition to the EditStor family of shared media storage, EditStor Omni is engineered to tackle nearly every bandwidth-intensive post production workflow. With available speeds of more than 4500 MBps, facilities owners can provide their creative teams with enough bandwidth to simultaneously play back, for example, up to four 4K DPX files, 23 streams of 5K (REDcam), as many as 200 streams of DNxHD 220 or other demanding combinations.
Omni’s advanced throughput engine and file system, combined with state-of-the-art storage architecture and patented technologies, ensure constant data flow for all content creation applications. EditStor Omni also continues to extend its Ethernet-based protocols from gigE and 10gigE to include 40gigE and has the power to extend to future protocols, workflows and cloud-based systems.
Like EditStor ES and EO, Omni offers tremendous flexibility for creative professionals. Features include the ability to share over multiple protocols, the seamlessness of dynamically expanding volumes, automated data and volume replication, support for and compatibility with several user authentication methods, including LDAP workgroup and Windows Active Directory, and much more.
EditStor Omni is completely compatible with all of today’s best content creation software, including Adobe CC and Anywhere, Avid Media Composer and Pro Tools (with the industry’s most transparent Avid Project sharing), Apple Final Cut Pro X, Autodesk Smoke and Flame, Black Magic Resolve and more. Easy to set up, manage and scale, each system mounts the workspaces in the protocol of choice to ensure the greatest compatibility and performance.
