Mobile media server and storage appliance ELEMENTS CUBE awarded „Best Product of 2016“ and gains recognition for innovative features that increase efficiency on set
Dusseldorf, Germany, Jan 3, 2017: ELEMENTS, developer of advanced solutions for unrestricted collaboration in shared media workflows, has announced that its mobile media server and storage appliance ELEMENTS CUBE has been recognized as “Best Product of 2016” by TM Broadcast. The unique solution impressed with its exceptional design and unique features, allowing customers to carry up to 32TB portable high-performance media storage in an ultra-small chassis.
ELEMENTS’ comprehensive set of field-proven and fully intuitive workflow enhancement features and media asset management tools embedded in the appliance make ELEMENTS CUBE much more than mobile storage. Providing users with access to ELEMENTS’ award-winning Media Library, its exclusive web-based media asset management tool with a fully intuitive graphical user interface, CUBE customers are able to view, pre-select and annotate media assets from anywhere.
The easy-to-use Rough-Cut editing tool empowers the director or editor to create rough-cuts right on set, using any standard computer or tablet. Rough cuts conducted with the Media Library are fully compatible with virtually every professional editing application available today, including Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere, so the entire project can be transferred seamlessly, while fully supporting Avid bin-locking and project sharing.
„We are very proud that ELEMENTS CUBE has been awarded “Best Product of 2016” by TM Broadcast just one month after ELEMENTS Media Library won the Coup de Coeur award at SATIS in Paris ,” says André Kamps, CEO of ELEMENTS. “It is truly rewarding to receive recognition for our solutions that are specifically designed for video professionals, not IT professionals. We continue to actively develop new features to make media workflows even faster and simpler for our users.”
Already providing utmost flexibility for customers to work with their media assets from anywhere, the latest version of ELEMENTS CUBE puts less than 8kg (18lbs) on the scale, even when fully populated, allowing users to simply take their media assets on commercial airlines as carry-on luggage. Equipped with whisper-quiet fans and USB 3.0 and E-SATA ports, ELEMENTS CUBE supports combinations of SAS, SATA and SSD drives, and allows utilization of ingest cards.
