ELEMENTS Provides Quantum Xcellis Users a GATEWAY to Work Seamlessly with Avid
Breakthrough technology to debut at IBC 2016, enabling Avid Workstations to share media files natively
ELEMENTS, developer of advanced solutions for unrestricted collaboration in shared media workflows, has announced its ELEMENTS GATEWAY as a virtually embedded application in Quantum Xcellis™. ELEMENTS’ breakthrough development connects between Avid workstations and Quantum’s StorNext® file system including its archive storage tiers, providing Quantum’s post-production and broadcast customers the ability to share files natively across the entire facility and across all platforms – including Avid Media Composer and with native Avid Project Sharing and Avid Bin-locking support.
Quantum Xcellis, the next generation high-performance storage solution, is designed to share and leverage data quickly, easily and cost-effectively. ELEMENTS leverages the Xcellis system’s unique ability to support embedded applications to make their unique technology available to customers working with Avid workstations mixed into their heterogeneous environments.
ELEMENTS GATEWAY also provides users with the option to enable ELEMENTS’ full range of workflow enhancement tools, including the Media Library, a comprehensive media asset management and editing tool. Equipped with a full-text search engine, a file manager and task management tool for customized workflow automation, the web-based Media Library caters to every important step of a digital post-production workflow and offers unique features that significantly simplify and streamline everyday tasks and approval processes.
The solution with ELEMENTS GATEWAY and Quantum Xcellis will be demonstrated at IBC in ELEMENTS’ stand #7.B08, and Quantum’s stand #7.B27 in the RAI convention center.
The embedded ELEMENTS GATEWAY in Quantum Xcellis™ will be commercially available with the release of StorNext version 5.4 in calendar Q4 through ELEMENTS and Quantum.
