Quantum Unveils New StorNext Pro Solutions Delivering Optimized Storage for Modern Digital Workflows

New Lower-Priced Offerings for Broadcast and Post Facilities Support 4K Resolutions, Multiple Camera Formats and Broader Content Distribution Models

SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today introduced its StorNext® Pro Storage Solutions, which are specifically designed and highly optimized to enable the newest high-performance digital workflows and drive higher levels of efficiency for broadcasters and post-production facilities. Users today face tremendous challenges building storage infrastructure that adequately supports the latest 4K workflows, more camera formats and a greater number of delivery options. With Quantum's StorNext Pro Solutions, these challenges are easily overcome by leveraging the power and efficiency of the newly re-architected StorNext 5 platform. The offerings are initially available in three configurations, each tailored to specific customer workflows: StorNext Pro Studio, StorNext Pro 4K and StorNext Pro Production. Each one is highly scalable, includes three years of product support and integrates seamlessly with the extensive StorNext ecosystem, including products from Apple, Adobe, Autodesk, Avid, Telestream and all popular media asset management applications.

At the core of the StorNext Pro Solutions is StorNext 5, a new, high-performance storage management platform optimized for the deadline-driven demands of modern media workflows. Offerings include:

  • StorNext Pro Studio is designed to easily refresh or enhance existing Apple Xsan storage environments by providing a high-performance, scalable and 100 percent Xsan-compatible solution with 48 TB of storage capacity. StorNext Pro Studio integrates the StorNext M441D metadata appliance with the StorNext QX1200 RAID storage system, making it cost-effective, easier to deploy and ideal for today's production studios.
  • StorNext Pro 4K provides high-performance storage for both new and existing StorNext deployments to support demanding 4K media workflows. With flash-based metadata performance using the StorNext M445 SSD metadata appliance and scalability provided by StorNext QX1200 RAID storage systems (144 TB raw capacity), this configuration enables efficient 4K workflows, including ingest, production and delivery.
  • StorNext Pro Production gives post and broadcast professionals a complete storage platform spanning content production to content library management. Combining the highly scalable StorNext M662XL metadata appliance, StorNext QX1200 RAID storage systems (96 TB raw) and StorNext AEL500 41-slot (102.5 TB) LTO-6 library, this unified storage foundation effectively serves production workgroups, integrated Windows/Linux review stations, proxy and transcode servers, LTFS acquisition, delivery and archive.

All StorNext Pro Solutions are available with configuration enhancements that provide additional storage capacity, features and professional services.

Quantum will showcase StorNext 5 and its new StorNext Pro Solution offerings at the 2014 NAB Show (booth #SL8416) at the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 7-10.
