Facilis Boosts End-to-End Creative Workflows

Facilis announces the compatibility of TerraBlock shared storage and SyncBlock archiving solutions with popular tools from Cinedeck, Empress and axle Video.

Las Vegas, NV --

At NAB 2013, Facilis Technology continued to raise the bar for end-to-end creative workflows with the announcement of compatibility for its high-performance TerraBlock shared storage and SyncBlock archiving solutions with popular tools from Cinedeck, Empress and axle Video. Each new qualification brings post production and content creation professionals the option to expand their ingest, storage, archiving and asset management capabilities with production-proven solutions that cater to a wide range of facilities – from boutique to mid-size and larger creative shops.

NAB attendees can visit the Facilis booth (SL 7606) and various partner booths throughout the show to see how these workflows foster greater productivity and collaboration:

Facilis TerraBlock at the Cinedeck Booth – SL 14911Cinedeck’s MX multi-channel ingest platform supplies the virtual facility with constant media assets from several concurrent inputs. Now qualified as a 10Gb connected client to Facilis’ Shared File System, facilities can access up to 4:4:4 10bit HD direct ingest with real time proxy generation for up to 4 channels concurrently. A live ingest workflow with TerraBlock will be on display for attendees to check out at the Cinedeck booth throughout the show.

Empress Showcases eMAM 3.3 and TerraBlock Workflow – SL 12505Empress, a leading enterprise asset management provider, has qualified Facilis’ TerraBlock and Shared File System as supported storage for its eMAM 3.3 digital asset management system. The new version of eMAM features integration of Adobe products directly in the MAM interface and will be showcased with the Facilis TerraBlock in a shared workflow with Adobe Prelude and Adobe Premiere Pro during NAB.

axle Video at the Facilis Booth – SL 7606axle Video has made its radically simple, affordable MAM (Media Asset Management) software compatible with Facilis SyncBlock to facilitate easier archive management. The software delivers search and playback of proxy assets even after data has been moved from Tier 1 storage. Post production and content creation professionals can now quickly track every asset placed into an archive, complete a search and find it.

“No shop or facility is alike; each requires its own unique workflow,” said James McKenna, Vice President of Marketing for Facilis. “Qualifying TerraBlock for such a diverse range of solutions is an example of our commitment to meeting the needs of each professional. TerraBlock is a flexible, powerful solution for any post production and content creation environment – from the five-man shop to a global broadcast facility.”
