New Mobile Media Storage is Light Enough to Fly
Debuting at IBC 2016: Next Generation ELEMENTS CUBE Packs Terabytes into Ultra Small, Portable Package
ELEMENTS, developer of advanced solutions for unrestricted collaboration in shared media workflows, has announced the release of a new generation of ELEMENTS CUBE, a portable high-performance media storage with up to 32TB in an ultra-small form factor chassis. Even when fully populated, the latest version of the mobile storage unit puts less than 8kg (18lbs) on the scale, allowing users to simply take their media assets on commercial airlines as carry-on luggage.
But the technical makeover of ELEMENTS CUBE show further improvements: in addition to supporting SAS, SATA and even SSD drives, it now has USB 3.0 and eSATA slots on board, while also allowing the use of ingest cards. New and advanced cooling fans ensure whisper-quiet operation.
CUBE is a lot more than just portable high-performance storage though. The comprehensive set of field-proven and fully intuitive workflow enhancement features and media asset management tools embedded in ELEMENTS CUBE simplify the transfer of media assets to central storage at the post-production facilities. ELEMENTS CUBE 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 new and improved ELEMENTS CUBE will be demonstrated at IBC in ELEMENTS’ stand #7.B08 in the RAI convention center.
The new ELEMENTS CUBE is available immediately through ELEMENTS and its worldwide reseller channel.
