Facilis To Showcase Shared Storage System At BroadcastAsia 2016

News Image
At Broadcast Asia 2016, Facilis will showcase its TerraBlock shared storage system on two separate exhibitors' booths.

Singapore-based broadcast solution provider, The Media Village, will demonstrate a TerraBlock shared storage system connected to an Adobe Premiere Pro workstation, a client running Digital Vision's Phoenix Film restoration software and another color grading client on Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve.

Simultaneously, VSN will demonstrate TerraBlock integrated alongside its VSN Explorer Production Asset Management (PAM) software system.

TerraBlock's appeal comes from its combination of advanced technology, reliable & robust operations and a highly competitive pricing strategy. Earlier this year Facilis introduced its latest SSD (Solid State Drive) technology, which it has incorporated within the TerraBlock Hybrid24 and SSD8 products. While the integration of SSD technology significantly increases the available shared bandwidth for heavy 4K+ production workflows, it's equally important to correctly and efficiently utilize SSD technology in a broadcast or post workflow.

By combining the best of traditional spinning disk technology with enterprise-class SDDs, a hybrid solution offers the best of both worlds and gives users the ability to dynamically assign volumes where performance matters most. Most importantly, users never have to waste valuable space on SSDs with persistent data, since spinning HDs in the same enclosure are used for automated offload and mirroring.

Capacity increases have also been announced across the model line, with substantially lower price points, making TerraBlock accessible to the broadest range of broadcast and corporate users.

Broadcast Asia 2016 coincides with Facilis receiving several ground-breaking orders within the APAC region. The company recently received its first order from Hong Kong whilst another, secured in the Philippines in partnership with The Media Village, represents its largest ever TerraBlock order. Earlier this year, Philippines-based ABS-CBN Corporation iPost (Integrated Post Production) purchased four TerraBlock 24D Hybrid 24 systems, which have already been delivered and installed at the customer's Quezon City-based post production facility.

iPost operates under the Technical Operations Division of the Philippines' national commercial broadcast television and radio network, ABS-CBN. It provides audio and video post production and visual effects services with an extensive range of content from drama series to soaps, talk shows and game shows. ABS-CBN operates two national TV channels, two regional radio networks, 11 cable channels and six international channels.

The TerraBlock shared storage system is integrated alongside iPost's content ingest facility to capture video feeds from other channels within the network and also from external sources. Eventually, the TerraBlock systems will be part of a larger central ingest system aimed to manage materials from acquisition to post production and delivery to in-house clients.

"We evaluated several other shared storage systems prior to making our decision and the Facilis TerraBlock out-performed all of its rivals," Jessie Yamzon, the Head of Post Production at iPost, said. "Price and performance combined with its ease of maintenance were major factors that also led to the decision."
