    September 11, 2010, 1:13 pm
    Hudson, Mass, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands, September 10, 2010 – Facilis Technology, a leader in shared media storage technology for post-production and content creation, today announced new hardware and operating system for TerraBlock shared storage systems. The 64bit operating system, as well as high performance SAS controllers, adds to the available bandwidth for multi-stream uncompressed and 2K/4K DI workflow.
    Facilis Technology Demonstrates New 64bit TerraBlock at Stand 7.D05





    See Extreme Multi-user Write Performance Over 8Gbit Fibre and 10Gbit Ethernet







    Hudson, Mass, and Amsterdam, The Netherlands, September 10, 2010 – Facilis Technology, a leader in shared media storage technology for post-production and content creation, today announced new hardware and operating system for TerraBlock shared storage systems. The 64bit operating system, as well as high performance SAS controllers, adds to the available bandwidth for multi-stream uncompressed and 2K/4K DI workflow.





    TerraBlock now supports 10Gbit Ethernet for access to Multi-user Write volumes. This more than doubles the stream count for Ethernet clients on the Facilis Shared File System network when aggregating multiple 1Gbit clients.




    Key features of TerraBlock shared storage now include:


    ? Dynamic sharing methods of Multi-user Write (file-level) and Single-user Write (volume-level), selectable on a per-virtual volume basis


    ? Access to virtual volumes over 8Gbit fibre channel or 1Gbit Ethernet with 10Gbit uplink


    ? Avid media and project sharing through native file system emulation


    ? Single-user Write volumes that support up to 4K uncompressed bandwidth





    "The move from an analogue to a tapeless workflow requires robust, fast, and flexible storage," said Ken Bell, MD at QuadLogic, European partners for TerraBlock. "Whether delivering uncompressed HD or DV over fibre or Ethernet to Mac and PC platforms, Facilis TerraBlock does it simply and performs as promised. With such pedigree it is an obvious choice in the broadcast and post-production market."





    Additionally, to help meet the ongoing demand for low-cost storage, Facilis will be showing the T8, a new SAS direct-attached storage option. This product will feature dual-channel 3Gbit connectivity using the ATTO ExpressSAS R380 adapter, and is qualified for multi-stream HD or 2K DPX applications.





    Facilis TerraBlock will be at IBC, September 9-14, stand 7.D05. TerraBlock with 64bit OS and 10Gbit Ethernet is currently shipping. For pricing and availability, please contact QuadLogic at info@quadlogic.co.uk. Visit Quad Logic Systems at the Facilis TerraBlock stand 7.D05.

      A Conversation With 'Early Man' Composer Tom Howe

      February 15, 2018, 1:26 pm
      Often the unsung heroes of the filmmaking business, composers can really help a film reach its full potential. Tom Howe is a composer whose most recent work includes scoring for Professor Marston and the Wonder Women, as well as the newest Aardman Animation film Early Man. His past credits also include Wonder Woman, The Legend of Tarzan, and The Great British Bake-Off.

      How Martin Scorsese Perfected the Voice-Over

      February 15, 2018, 1:26 pm
      Voice-over narration in film is often accused of being lazy or a crutch. Cinema is, after all, about visual storytelling. A voice-over can undermine the nature of the art form when misused. However, Martin Scorsese’s filmography, namely Goodfellas, Casino, Wolf Of Wall Street and Taxi Driver serve as excellent reminders for how great a voice-over can be when done right.

      Why Hitchcock Altered the Opening Sequence of 'Not

      February 15, 2018, 10:47 am
      You’d be hard-pressed to find a critic who does not count Alfred Hitchcock’s Notorious among the director’s best works. Francois Truffaut called it his favorite black-and-white Hitchcock film, saying that it is “the very quintessence of Hitchcock.”

      Remembering Jóhann Jóhannsson, Visionary Film Co

      ’d first knowingly heard Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson‘s work in Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival, in which the score is characterized by a low, rumbling din and staccato vocalizations that, fittingly, sound altogether alien to the ears.

      5 Tips For Throwing A Rough Cut Screening Party

      February 14, 2018, 10:20 am
      No matter how awesome your movie, there are always ways to improve it. Having spent the greater part of my career working in film distribution, most rough cuts are ten minutes too long. But if you are like most filmmakers, you’re too close to the material to know what to cut and what to keep.
