Portland Timbers and Thorns FC Choose SNS for Shared Storage, Media Asset Management
Studio Network Solutions announced a new corporate relationship with Major League Soccer’s Portland Timbers and the National Women’s Soccer League’s Portland Thorns FC. The agreement leverages the high-performance EVO shared storage server and its included EVO Suite of software tools to accelerate video production workflow for Portland’s professional soccer teams.
“We are excited to add the Portland Timbers and Thorns to our EVO family,” said Ryan Stoutenborough, president at SNS. “Professional sports teams have to be able to produce high-quality video content quickly and efficiently. EVO gives Portland’s soccer powerhouses the speed, capacity, and workflow tools they need to create exceptional video content for their loyal fan base in the stadium and at home.”
“SNS provides us with the high-performance storage and media asset management solutions we need to create top-quality video content for our fans. We chose to partner with SNS because of their reputation for performance, quality, and support, and because their product offers a full solution to our workflow and storage needs,” said Robert Rice, vice president of IT for the Portland Timbers.
“EVO streamlines our creative workflow so we can manage our ever-growing library of video content more effectively and focus on creating incredible, media-rich experiences for our Timbers fans,” said Mike Marchlewski, director of video content for the Portland Timbers.
EVO enables multi-user collaboration for professional video production. Every EVO shared storage solution comes with the included EVO Suite, a collection of media asset management, automations, remote editing, and cloud workflow tools that won multiple NAB Product of the Year Awards earlier this year.
