NAB 2022: Quantum Develops New Solutions to Address Content, Storage Needs

At NAB 2022, Quantum (Booth N4109) is launching three new products that allow creative teams of any size – both small and large – to respond to the growing need for continuous, collaborative content production.

This has only become more difficult as more creative teams navigate remote work and the rising demand for content – the Cisco Annual Internet Report predicts that by 2023, 82% of all global internet traffic will come from streaming videos and downloads. That demand places a heavy burden on content creators. Every company and creative team understands that to reach an audience effectively and help them connect with their work and brand, they need to create content quickly and collaborate as a team because it’s more than one person can create, manage, or keep track of. In fact, these teams need to leverage their shared talents and accelerate their work – together. The new wave of agile content creators and storytellers need technology to efficiently manage non-stop data to meet the non-stop demand of their audiences, from wherever they’re working.

Quantum H4000 Essential
The basics: Quantum’s new H4000 Essential (H4000E) brings the power of the Quantum H4000 to small, independent creative teams. H4000E is an all-in-one content organization and collaboration, highly available shared storage solution powered by Quantum StorNext and Quantum CatDV. Designed for easy setup with no IT expertise required, the H4000E can be up and running within minutes. This helps small creators manage their video data and collaborate on files anywhere, accommodating remote work, and allowing them to leverage the same technology and capabilities available to large corporate video teams, content producers, and broadcasters at a scalable and accessible price point.

Who it’s for: Small-independent creative houses or small creative teams within large organizations

Key features:

  • StorNext collaborative shared storage systems starting at 48TB or 96TB of raw storage, expandable up to 384TB
  • Quantum CatDV pre-installed and pre-configured for use by up to 10 named users, including use of Adobe Premiere Pro CatDV Panel

This next-gen NVMe offering doubles the speed and storage available through the Quantum F series, allowing content producers with increasingly demanding workflows delivering incredible performance in a very small footprint to drive out workflow bottlenecks in their work in process storage to work faster and more efficiently. Customers already use the F2100 for complex production needs, including AR/VR development. The new product can facilitate storage and processing power previously only accessible with racks of spinning disk storage.
