NAB NY 2018: DigitalGlue Highlights creative.space Media Storage Platform
DigitalGlue will be offering attendees of the 2018 NAB Show NY a look at their creative.space media storage solution. Offered as an On-Premise Managed Storage (OPMS) service, creative.space features a high-speed, high-capacity platform with thorough and inclusive 24/7 monitoring, technical support and next-day repairs — all available at an affordable fixed monthly rate. Company executives, including the developers of creative.space, will be at DigitalGlue’s Booth #N1019 throughout the show to discuss the benefits of the solution and demonstrate how it works.
“We are extremely excited to bring creative.space to the NAB Show NY and speak directly with attendees about how it delivers superior performance at lower than cloud prices and allows collaboration without compromise,” says Tim Anderson, DigitalGlue CEO/CTO. “With the demand for 4K, HDR, and IMF delivery, VFX and finishing houses are left with few options that provide the performance, scale, and affordability needed to provide high-quality content on-time and on budget. creative.space, and particularly the //BREATHLESS system, addresses the needs of creative and technical professionals within the broadcast and postproduction space who are in need of cost-effective storage solutions. It provides the hardware necessary to eliminate the bottlenecks that cause delays, stretch budgets and lower the overall quality of the production.”
creative.space comprises several systems that have been tailored for different applications. DigitalGlue will highlight the platform’s //BREATHLESS system that was developed to target video production, VFX, and Content Distribution Networks. More than ready for 4K, 6K, and even 8K uncompressed workflows using JPEG2000, DPX, multi-channel OpenEXR, //BREAHLESS features a 36-bay all-flash NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) drive packed into a 1U form factor with the capability to deliver 10 million random read IOPS of storage performance. The system will be shown with 4TB NVMe SSDs, however a 16TB version will be introduced later this year, allowing 576 TB of Flash storage to fit in 1 RU.
creative.space enhances collaborative workflows by optimizing the latest, most advanced hardware and software for efficiency and increased productivity via its OPMS. The all-inclusive solution is offered at a fixed monthly rate based upon 1, 2, or a 3-year contract.
Other systems in the creative.space platform, in addition to //BREATHLESS, include: the //AUTEUR series which starts out with 120TB RAW capacity across 12 drives in a 24-bay 4 RU chassis for facilities experiencing rapid growth; //DEUS EX, a hybrid NVMe SSD and HDD media storage solution built for uncompressed high-resolution workflows; //ROGUE – a portable system that is an easy entry point for small teams; and the soon to be released //MONTAGE featuring 60 drives in 4-RUs (Up to 720TB) for those who need serious capacity and consider scalability a top priority.
DigitalGlue, the US distributor for TAG V.S.- the international specialist in advanced IP monitoring and high-quality UHD Multiviewers, will also show a model multiviewer and montoring solution that will focus on the systems’ UHD/HDR monitoring capability.
