ELEMENTS is Expanding

This year in Hall 7, be on the lookout for the big yellow E that signals the updated ELEMENTS stand – now three times larger than before. We have scaled up our presence to fit all the new stuff that we have been working on and to welcome as many guests as possible while maintaining appropriate social distancing.

You can expect the following:

  • Presentation of a new file system partnership
  • Media Library Panel now on DaVinci Resolve
  • New Media Library Functionalities
  • Discussing Remote vs On-Premise Live Productions
  • Our Storage Qualification Program
New booth location in the middle of hall 7

File System Innovation

This year, we are introducing an all-new high-performance file system to the Media and Entertainment industry – BeeGFS. Developed by ThinkParQ and designed to power supercomputers, BeeGFS will enable us to build highly efficient cloud and on-premise storage environments and benefit from high-performance Ethernet workflows with revolutionary on-demand cloud possibilities.

In September, we used an ELEMENTS BOLT environment with BeeGFS to achieve the highest performance score ever recorded by the SPEC SFS VDA benchmark. At this years event we will have colleagues from BeeGFS on hand to answer all questions related to this revolutionary file system.

Media Library Panel

Many Adobe Premiere Pro users have come to love and regularly use our Media Library Panel. Now, we have released the Panel for DaVinci Resolve users too. The Panel provides the same, powerful features in both NLEs such as: Importing clips and rough-cuts together with all the comments on the footage, starting Automation jobs and the granular search function. The Panel also allows you to reuse Media Library proxy files for offline editing, helping you to save time and bandwidth. A simple click of a button is enough to relink the timeline to proxy or high-resolution footage.

Media Library Updates

AAF Support – Rough-cuts created in the Media Library, can now be downloaded as an AAF file. This feature, together with our existing EDL and XML support allows you to easily import Rough-cuts into your favorite NLE such as Avid Media Composer, Premiere Pro or DaVinci Resolve. All comments on the clips used in the sequence will also be imported.

External transcoders – Support for external transcoders has been added, which means that you can now use Colorfront Transkoder or Telestream Vantage to generate proxy files for the Media Library.

Improved sharing – Anonymous sharing links can now be sent. The links can be password protected and can, if required, take the user straight to the download while skipping the UI.

Other improvements include the possibility to quickly render a subclip into a physical file, an updated Rough-cut Editor interface, excluding certain folders from Media Library scans and much more.

IBC Panel Discussion: Remote vs On-Premise Live Production

Join us at the IBC Panel on Friday the 3rd of December at 12:15 on the Production Stage of the Hall 7 where our CTO, Heiner Lesaar, will be discussing the pros and cons of remote vs on-premise live productions and exploring what possibilities the future might bring. Here, we will talk about possible transformations that storage vendors might need to take on and how ELEMENTS’ workflow-centric approach might be of great benefit.

Storage Qualification Program

We have started a Storage Qualification Program helps to ensure the compatibility of ELEMENTS products with a selected range of 3rd party storage vendors for the Media & Entertainment industry. Quantum Xcellis and Dell EMC Isilon are the first to have been qualified, and we look forward to explaining to you what this program could mean for your company.
