Broadcast production has evolved rapidly over the past few years with no signs of slowing down. The demands of a fully digital HD workflow with multiple camera formats and an even greater number of delivery formats are driving a need for improved efficiency and flexibility in production. This need will only grow as 4K broadcast becomes more prevalent. Few storage solutions are up to the task of simultaneous multiple ingest, transcode, editing and delivery streams, especially at 4K resolutions. But one is. StorNext® delivers the ideal combination of shared storage and data management capabilities to support broadcast workflows.
StorNext is a completely open platform offering unmatched collaboration, performance and reliability. From workgroups to full facilities, StorNext delivers unmatched workflow efficiency. Built on decades of proven service at top broadcasters, StorNext is the standard for broadcast production.
Frame-accurate shared access to media files is essential for effective collaboration. StorNext centralizes content and enables simultaneous, seamless and fast file sharing over high-speed IP and Fibre Channel networks.
With every increase in image resolution and every new camera source, the storage capacity needed to capture and manipulate content grows dramatically. With StorNext you can start with the amount of storage you need today and easily scale up to dozens of petabytes with zero downtime.
Media companies have an increasing demand to share content across teams, whether down the hall or across the globe. StorNext provides multi-user accessibility and transparent visibility, allowing users to access any content from any location.
StorNext empowers you to optimize capacity through policy-driven, automated storage tiering, reducing the need for costly primary storage. Files can be automatically and transparently moved from flash to tape, object storage or the cloud—while optimizing performance and maintaining security and high availability.
The new system has much faster performance overall, and it provides much more flexibility. Now, we have 200 seats with high performance access to all the shared content through the StorNext File System—so that more editors can work faster and more collaboratively, and spend less time moving themselves or the content around.Roland Rodgers
We got the StorNext edit/play out system up and running just in time for the games, and it worked perfectly. It easily handled up to 25 TB of ingest every day, let us edit work as we needed and turn content quickly into a variety of different broadcasts—and, very importantly, gave us a 16 channel live play out capability that was totally reliable.Lourenço Carvano
