EASILY SCALE STORAGE CAPACITY, USERS & PERFORMANCE
Platform is designed to scale easily for today’s dynamic video workgroups.
|Scale Storage – Platform Online can support up to 192TB per server (in just 3RU of rack space) and up to 576TB per node, with flexibility to expand to multiple petabytes in a multi-node architecture.
Scale Users – Users can connect to Platform either directly or through a switch using 1GbE or 10GbE over copper or fiber infrastructure. There is no limit to the number of users that may connect and no per user license fees. Platform Online Series can support up to 20 x 1GbE direct connections or 16 x 10GbE connections
Scale Performance – Platform’s scale-out architecture increases video streaming performance in parallel with expanding storage capacity. So when you add a storage expansion to your Platform server you add another pool of disk bandwidth, increasing the total concurrent streaming performance of the system.
Platform’s architectural foundation is built around a Project Management focus. This approach allows natural organization of common data for creative users that need to collaborate on active work. It also promotes simple backup, permission management and retention design. Projects are mounted like volumes from workstations and take on various attributes assigned by project administrators. This design enables a powerful and extensible approach to creative project management.
MEDIA ASSET MANAGEMENT
Get organized and find your files faster. Indexing, search, custom metadata tagging, proxy generation and preview are all built-in to Platform and require no additional license fees. Learn More about Project Based Media Asset Management.
Platform Servers feature a built-in transcode engine that can process up to 8 simultaneous transcodes. This enables creative groups to offload time consuming file conversions from their workstations. Create custom transcode workflows to convert media at ingest or for delivery with support for multiple formats.
BACKUP AND ARCHIVE
With LTO backup and Archiving capabilities built directly into the system, media administrators can easily protect, deliver and manage their digital assets by copying to LTO tape. Platform supports full and incremental backup as well as full MD5 checksum archiving and uses industry standard formats like LTFS and tar. And with the ability to generate and view proxies of archived assets, users save significant time managing media assets.
SIMPLE CONTROLS FOR USERS & ADMINISTRATORS
A browser based UI allows users and administrators to manage the system and access content from anywhere on the network, and delivers a superior collaborative editing experience for creative workgroups.
What sets Platform apart from other systems is its ability to join an existing Windows domain and integrate natively with the Active Directory structure. This means that Platform is able to utilize the same users, groups and permissions that are already in place at an organization rather than maintaining a separate user account system that must be synced periodically. This is especially important for enterprise and corporate environments, schools and colleges.
