Quantum Brings StorNext to the Cloud at NAB With Live Collaborative Workflow for Post and Broadcast Production

Integration With Adobe, Levels Beyond and Telestream to Show Automated Ingest, Edit, Transcode and Distribution Using Quantum's StorNext and Lattus

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 04/07/14 -- NAB -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced that it will show a live demonstration of "StorNext in the Cloud" -- a StorNext®-Lattus™ Object Storage cloud-enabled media workflow running concurrently at its NAB booth #SL8416 and in its customer demonstration facility at Switch's SUPERNAP data center. Leading media production companies relying on StorNext-based workflows for production and archive will now have the ability to seamlessly integrate private cloud workflows into their facilities as well as enable media sharing worldwide, linking StorNext-based workgroups without maintaining duplicate copies of content.

Quantum's Lattus-powered private cloud streamlines collaboration between remote groups, improves efficiency and enables automation of common ingest, transcode and delivery operations as a seamless extension of StorNext production workflows. Creative teams can share content in real time over multiple, geographically dispersed locations and maintain a single, highly durable asset repository, or replicate assets among multiple sites for resiliency and faster access. Working in this advanced cloud-enabled environment also provides the flexibility to optimize the security and integrity of content management, scale capacity up/down to meet short-term needs, and incorporate business continuity and long-term preservation of content over its lifecycle.

In the NAB demonstration, content is ingested into Quantum's StorNext 5 platform and quickly moved to Quantum's Lattus Object Storage cloud using the Levels Beyond Reach Engine platform and Quantum's StorNext Storage Manager™. The content in the cloud can be edited locally through StorNext 5 using popular editing, proxy generation and finishing tools, as shown in the demonstration, and both locally and remotely using new editorial, logging and VFX workflow tools such as Adobe® Anywhere. Editors can also work on content directly without having to download high-resolution originals. Anywhere is designed to eliminate the delay of transferring or duplicating files across locations with the Adobe Mercury Streaming Engine and to remove the expense and hassle of proxy files. With Telestream's Vantage, transcoding happens in the secure cloud without making additional copies or moving files. Finally, content can then be distributed directly from the cloud using Reach Engine to any location, including a head end, uplink or a content provider, such as Netflix, YouTube, etc. Anywhere adds the ability for real-time simultaneous versioning -- eliminating the need to pass project files. Each component in the system (Quantum, Levels Beyond, Telestream and Anywhere) adds unique value; combined, the creative workflows are unlimited.

Quantum's Lattus-M provides fast and extremely durable long-term content inventory for delivery and future monetization by integrating next-generation object storage technology with StorNext Storage Manager in a highly scalable and efficient disk-based offering that enables policy-based management and rapid retrieval of content from multiple, geographically spread locations at nearline speeds. Lattus-M is a petascale "forever archive" offering much greater durability than traditional RAID, including true self-healing and self-protection capabilities, and providing automatic multi-site protection without the need for replication. The result is an object storage-based cloud infrastructure which is scalable, highly resilient and disaster-tolerant.

Alex Grossman, vice president, Media and Entertainment, Quantum
"Changing dynamics in the media landscape require a fresh new look at how post-production workflows are managed. One of the hot topics this week at NAB will be the future of cloud-enabled workflows. Where others are just talking about it, we will show at our booth how broadcasters and post facilities can lower costs and maintain flexibility when managing globally dispersed media collaboration environments. We've partnered with companies offering best-in-breed technologies across the workflow to demonstrate how StorNext 5 and Lattus can make this option a reality today."
