SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced that TVBEurope has honored Quantum's StorNext® Pro Solutions with StorNext Connect™ as a Best of Show Award winner at IBC2014. The awards recognize the best technology, equipment and companies serving the broadcast industry. In the case of Quantum, the award reflects the many benefits of easy-to-deploy, high-performance StorNext Pro™ storage systems for today's complex workflow environments.

StorNext Pro Solutions, including the new StorNext Pro Workgroup announced last week, are customized storage system configurations based on Quantum's industry-leading StorNext 5 technology platform. They are specifically designed to enable the newest digital workflows and higher levels of efficiency for broadcasters and postproduction facilities:

  • StorNext Pro 4K meets the demands of modern 4K media workflows from ingest to production to delivery with flash-based metadata appliances and highly scalable disk storage.
  • StorNext Pro Studio makes it easier to refresh or enhance existing Apple Xsan deployments by providing a high-performance, scalable and 100 percent Xsan-compatible solution.
  • StorNext Pro Workgroup provides ingest, production, review and delivery, with different options for petascale content storage and access at any stage of the workflow. These options include Quantum's Lattus™ object storage-based system, which extends online collaboration by seamlessly shifting non-real-time workflow operations to a fully protected, infinitely scalable storage infrastructure, with no negative impact on performance.
  • StorNext Pro Production supports complete, high-performance workflow storage spanning content production to content library management.

All StorNext Pro Solutions are supported by StorNext Connect, an easy-to-use tool set that simplifies the installation, discovery, management and monitoring of StorNext environments. With StorNext Connect, users can shorten the time it takes to deploy or upgrade StorNext systems, identify problems before they arise and reduce the risk of downtime or degraded performance by eliminating error-prone manual tasks.
