Pineapple Entertainment Selects Facilis Shared Storage Solution

News Image
Pineapple Entertainment selected a Facilis shared storage solution to enable a collaborative approach to media production.

Based in Copenhagen City with a staff of around 50 people, Pineapple Entertainment's core business is TV programs; however, since its establishment, Pineapple Entertainment has expanded to produce over 200 hours per year of fun, relevant and powerful content for all media platforms.
Recently a change to Pineapple’s production portfolio meant that it needed to consider a more collaborative storage solution.

"Previously a lot of our programmes, such as talk shows, needed only one editor, but we started bringing in more factual entertainment programmes that required multiple editors working simultaneously on the same material," said Christian Martens, Head of Production, Pineapple Entertainment. "We had two suites connected with a NAS but no project sharing, and the rest was standalone storage, so we began looking at a suitable collaborative storage replacement."

The Pineapple team set three main requirements for their research: the ability to share files, a system that was easy to use, and one that was budget friendly.

Stjernholm & Co A/S, Facilis’ distributor in Scandinavia, supplied and installed the system, and Martens found the installation process to be simple and painless.

The initial system was subsequently expanded with two additional Facilis shared storage units that at first worked independently, but were then integrated with the first system into the main workflow. "It was very easy to expand the system – Kristoffer came in and did some magic for a day and had it running perfectly in a short amount of time, with no disruption,” Martens noted. “We now have 12 edit suites all connected to the Facilis storage so we can move people around easily from one edit suite to another. All the editors are used to having a collaborative system like this, and they are happy with they way it allows them to work."
