For video editing teams requiring a mobile shared storage solution, Small Tree will be demonstrating its GraniteSTOR TitaniumZ-5 system at this year's Content & Communications World Expo in New York City (Booth 953). An all-in-one Ethernet-based shared storage solution for professional video editors who require shared access to media files, the portability of the TitaniumZ-5 enables post-production teams to edit at home, in the office, at the studio or on location.
A five-drive system supporting 2TB, 3TB or 4TB disk drives, TitaniumZ-5 is simple to set up and manage, allowing the storage to be available to users within minutes of initial start up. The Server, Networking and Storage are all accommodated within TitaniumZ-5's space saving desk top design, while the unit's capability to support up to 2 ports of 10Gb Ethernet offers peak performance all at an extremely attractive price point.
Providing high-performance sharing, quickly and directly from the RAID, TitaniumZ-5 includes simplified setup and management, RAID protection for multimedia editing and Small Tree's industry-leading tech support. Creative teams will feel the difference in increased performance and productivity immediately with this all-in-one system that is able to meet the most demanding editing situations.
As with Small Tree's TitaniumZ-8 and 16 systems, the TitaniumZ-5 offers optimal flexibility with the ability to work across multiple protocols (AFP, SMB, NFS and iSCSI) and platforms, including Adobe Creative Suite, Avid Media Composer, Avid Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut Pro 7 and Apple Final Cut Pro X. Additionally, the TitaniumZ-5 system includes Mint project sharing software from Flavoursys - customers can purchase a 4 or 8 seat license - which offers seamless project and media sharing for Avid Media Composer.
"We wanted to provide a better value shared storage solution for our customers in addition to a solution that would meet mobile production requirements, and the TitaniumZ-5 has done just that," said Corbin Seeber, Small Tree president. "Increased performance from every core technology used in the TitaniumZ-5, combined with Small Tree's custom software, has created a shared storage product solution with greater storage capacity, higher editing performance and more features supported at a very cost-effective price."
