    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.

    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.

      ARRI RAW for Final Cut v1.0.2

      July 16, 2009, 4:23 pm
      ARRI creates and manufactures the ARRIFLEX D21 digital cinema camera. The camera generates raw image sequences which can be recorded on to digital recording systems such as S.Two’s DFR system and Codex Digital’s field recorders. ARRIRAW files are saved to these devices, preserving the maximum fidelity of the image captured by the D21 cinematography camera. The ARRIRAW Toolkit allows MacOSX users to work with these ".ari" files natively in Final Cut Studio and any Quicktime enabled application.

      Avid Media Composer and Boris FX

      July 16, 2009, 4:22 pm
      Over the past few weeks I’ve found several great tutorials on using Avid & Boris FX together. Some of them have already been posted on PVC, some haven’t. I wanted to put them all together into one place. Media Composer ships with both Avid FX (a special Avid version of Boris Red) and Continuum Complete. When you put it together it makes for an extremely powerful compositing and FX solution.

      WORKFLOW: 'TRACEY ULLMAN'S STATE OF THE UNION'

      July 15, 2009, 4:19 pm
      Tracey Ullman's comedy sketches are often a barometer of the cultural zeitgeist. Her current show, Tracey Ullman's State of the Union, is the latest forum for the Emmy award winner to showcase her uncanny impersonations and hilarious skits in a satirical look at a day in the life of America. Her unique take on the country's celebrity-obsessed, 24/7 news culture is one step ahead of viewers' expectations with the kind of searing and irreverent insights that keep audiences laughing and coming...
