ProMAX Adds Full SSD Workflow Servers with up to 64TB per Unit and 3.2GB/sec Performance

New Workflow Servers open up new opportunities for collaborative editing and multi-user image sequence finishing.  

(April 24th, 2017; Santa Ana, CA) ProMAX Systems, world leader in integrated workflow technology for creative media organizations, has released a new lineup of Platform workflow servers focused on very high-performance – 4K and higher – finishing workflows.  These systems, based on 3D NAND SSD technology offer massive performance combined with high capacity storage for image sequence workflows in the media creation space.

“Collaborative Finishing Workflows for 4K DPX or other image sequences are particularly difficult to handle in a Shared Storage Environment” said Jess Hartmann, CEO of ProMAX.  “Each of these video streams requires over 800 Megabytes per second throughput to each workstation.  When you have multiple artists pulling these kinds of streams at the same time, traditional Shared Storage systems just can’t keep up.  But with our new Platform Online SSD systems, we can deliver up to 4 streams, or 3.2 Gigabytes per second, to a team of content creators”.
