News Image
Pixit Media has announced it is to exhibit its software defined storage as a central repository to provide 4K uncompressed playback for a number of applications used in the broadcast and post industries at BVE 2016.

Some of the companies demonstrating their technology through the PixStor central NAS storage system will include Adobe, Digital Vision, Google, Mellanox, NetApp and The Foundry.

Showcasing how PixStor users can utilise industry standard commodity hardware, technology partner NetApp will display its latest all flash disk arrays, while Mellanox will display its high speed network and switching.

Software partners on the stand will highlight the performance and management capability of the 4K workflow, by showing operators how they can render using Google compute through industry standard commodity hardware components. Digital Vision will display its 4K grading and restoration software Nucoda, alongside NUKE Studio for VFX Editorial and Finishing from The Foundry, in addition to Adobe's complete Creative Suite for graphic design, video editing and web development applications.

Furthermore, PixStor's ability to seamlessly extend into Google cloud and store content using Google Nearline storage will be demonstrated. Using the vast resources of Google Cloud storage in conjunction with the PixCache Cloud Gateway Appliance, attendees can view PixStor's ability to submit render jobs to cloud based render farms and return these completed jobs.

Also on display will be General Atomics data management software suite, Nirvana – a metadata centric storage management tool enabling users to make secure commercial decisions on where to store data and use advanced analytics to help make decisions on where to keep it and for how long.

Lastly, Milk Studios will be discussing Pixit Media's role within their recent expansion to Cardiff alongside Escape Studios.

Barry Evans, Technical Director, Pixit Media, said: "At Pixit Media we appreciate that with ever decreasing budgets companies need intelligent and data aware file systems to ensure data is stored on the most cost effective storage platforms. That's why we're pleased to be demonstrating our relevant solutions this year at BVE, enabling customers to invest wisely in non-proprietary technology that does not lock them in to one vendor."

Pixit Media will be at BVE 2016, stand K11, from 23 to 25 February.
