    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.

      Adobe Premiere Pro Update Is Significantly Faster

      August 7, 2018, 6:35 am
      Jason Vong was testing the latest MacBook Pro when he saw an obvious issue with Premiere Pro. It was struggling to keep up with the same timeline on a Windows laptop, and even Final Cut Pro X. This has been a problem for years now and the lack of optimization has caused users to switch to FCPX for the speed boost.

      Lectrosonics PDR used on Mission Impossible Fallou

      August 6, 2018, 5:05 pm
      Tom Cruise, who famously performs many of his own stunts, doubles down on the derring-do in Mission: Impossible — Fallout, the latest installment of the spy thriller franchise. Multi-award-winning British production sound mixer Chris Munro had to up his game to cleanly capture Cruise’s dialogue as the action star clambered aboard a moving helicopter, leaped from a high-altitude jet and sped through the streets of Paris, using Lectrosonics PDR Portable Digital Audio Recorders, as well as his existing arsenal of Lectrosonics Digital Hybrid Wireless equipment.

      Cheaper graphics cards? There’s a reason for tha

      August 6, 2018, 5:05 pm
      We first wrote about the disastrous effect that crypto-currency mining was having on the graphics card market back in February, when miners were using as many GPUs as possible to crack the equations necessary to create new crypto. Back then, a Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070, suggested retail price $380, was selling for up to $1000 in some markets and availability was almost non-existent.
