    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.

    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.

      Media Composer 5 will be released a week from tomorrow, and without question, it represents the biggest upgrade Avid has offered in years — since the last version 5, to be exact, way back in 1994, when the modern Media Composer was born.

      Poker Night At the Post Group

      June 2, 2010, 5:30 pm
      I had the great pleasure of being invited to The Post Group Poker Night Party last week. I was greeted by Dan Kliman, who gave me a hearty welcome to start off the night. While I’m a player, I’m not that kind of a player, so I decided to go on a tour of their beautiful facility.

      Review - Magic Bullet Grinder

      June 1, 2010, 5:29 pm
      I woke up this morning to an email from the fine folks at Magic Bullet. It had all kinds of info about their new helper app "Grinder" It is a new app designed to help batch convert your h.264 native files into prores or photo-jpeg. It also can help speed up creating lower res proxies, AND adding timecode!

      Using Compressor to Convert to DNxHD36

      June 1, 2010, 5:28 pm
      Here is a freebie compressor setting. Recently I was working on a rather large project and we had several different formats that we needed to put into Avid. This compressor setting was made to convert whatever .mov file into DNxHD 36.

      FCP 7 - Reconnect Media Bug

      June 1, 2010, 5:27 pm
      This one is a bummer. It seems like if you are reconnecting media in final cut 7 you can end up stuck and are forced to force quit. There isn’t really a fix for this other than to not cause it. Luckily the bug is fairly reproducible.

      Adobe CS5 and nVidia: First Impressions Pt. 2

      Sorry about dropping from sight for the last couple of weeks, but when the day-job calls, it calls with a vengeance. I also apologize for the lack of photos, but I just didn’t think to do screengrabs at all the right times. Bad editor! No doughnut!

      This program offers a way to assign metadeta to Quicktime files that will be plugged into an ALE. I found it very helpful when working with 7D files being put into Avid (after being converted to DNx36 HD into Compressor) that were missing reels and other important information that is needed in an EDL.
