Shared storage and so much more
|The ProMAX Platform Studio Series is a High-Performance Workflow Server, designed for video professionals to accelerate and improve their content creation process. It features powerful shared storage that is optimized for video workgroups using Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, Apple’s Final Cut Pro and other creative software applications. Platform scales easily for workgroups of all sizes, is simple to deploy, and integrates seamlessly with existing IT infrastructure.
What sets Platform apart from other storage systems is its ability to accelerate content creation. Platform Servers manage multiple production processes including media asset management, transcoding, and rendering that would typically be executed on individual workstations. Because Platform has direct access to the media it can accomplish these operations more efficiently, meaning you’ll finish projects faster and deliver better results for your customers.
