    Facilis Technology Demonstrates New 64bit Terra

    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.

      Got Greener Grass?

      February 8, 2010, 8:43 am
      In the world of editing, I know of many who wish they could make a living in post-production, even doing the smallest projects. Many editors in and outside Hollywood do, moonlighting on random corporate promos and commercials. They often wish they could get something more regular, like cutting a tv series be it only on the smallest cable channel...

      Negative Spaces Blog downloaded this on a whim and I think it's actually pretty useful for reference. It's basically a dictionary of modern video terminology along with some simple explanations of various codecs, formats, and hardware. For $1.99 why not?

      Talking on Casino Jack

      February 6, 2010, 8:42 am
      One movie that had Park City audiences buzzing at this year’s Sundance Film Festival was Casino Jack and the United States of Money (opening on May 7, 2010). This daring documentary takes a piercing look at the lies, greed and corruption surrounding infamous Washington, DC lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his cronies. Casino Jack marks the third feature film collaboration between director Alex Gibney (Oscar-winner for Taxi to the Dark Side) and editor-producer Alison Ellwood and co-editor Lindy...

      Avid Screencast - Red Workflow IV

      February 5, 2010, 8:41 am
      This is the fourth of several episodes covering a workflow for using Red Digital Cinema Cameras with your Avid editing application. In this episode, we’ll conform a sequence that was offline edited in Avid to Apple’s Color, where you’ll be able to grade from the original R3Ds. You will not believe it, but it’s actually a pretty quick and painless process!

      Slip, Slide, Ripple, Roll. Trim your way to Edits

      February 5, 2010, 8:40 am
      I’ve been editing on non-linear systems for 12 years. With each passing year I’m happy to say I’m still learning. One of the tools that took me a while to really grasp was the trim tools. In fact it wasn’t until I had to learn Final Cut Pro about 7 years ago that I truly started to appreciate the power of the trim. I use the trim tool daily, hourly, probably many times a minute. The trim tools make an editor’s life easier. Trimming is like the wax you put on your car.

      I'm not a post guy. Never have been. But as the workflow has moved from film to tape and tape to data, I've had to learn far more about post production then I ever thought I would need to.

      FCP to Soundtrack OMF Bug Workaround

      February 4, 2010, 8:35 am
      Spent most of the afternoon trying to chase down a Final Cut Studio bug. Today’s task was to generate an audio-only OMF version of my movie for the sound editor. I wanted to check the OMF included the handles and keyframes that I had specified. As Soundtrack can import OMFs, I tried that.

      Avid MetaFuze is a tool from Avid Technology that converts various video formats (most notably DPX and RED RAW) into native DNxHD media that can be used with Avid’s editing products. The product ships with two interfaces – a GUI for direct transcoding, and a command-line version more suitable for scripting.
