Symply Demonstrate Industry’s First Affordable High-Speed Multi-User StorNext®6 Powered Thunderbolt3 Storage Solution at NAB New York
SymplyWORKSPACE technology demonstrates company’s innovative Thunderbolt™3 shared storage platform capable of 4K editing and 8 simultaneous Thunderbolt™3 clients
Cambridge, UK, 15th October 2018 – Symply, a Global Distribution brand, will be demonstrating SymplyWORKSPACE, the first Thunderbolt™3 based SAN technology using StorNext®6, at the NAB New York (booth N237).
With the high adoption rates of Thunderbolt equipped workstations and laptops being used in media production, being able to connect high-speed shared storage has not been easy and requires expensive and bulky adapters. SymplyWORKSPACE allows laptops and workstations equipped with Thunderbolt™3 to ingest, edit, finish, and deliver without the need to move content locally, even at 4K resolutions with a direct Thunderbolt™3 cable connection, and with no adapter needed.
Based on industry leading Quantum StorNext®6 sharing software, users can reliably connect up to 8 laptops and workstations to the system using a standard Thunderbolt with no additional hardware or adapters, and share video files, graphics and other data files instantly.
One of the early limitations of Thunderbolt™3 has been the short cable length from storage to workstation. With the introduction of Corning® optical cable technology, users can now be tens of metres away from the SymplyWORKSPACE.
While the company has not announced pricing or availability, the systems are expected to start under $10,000 USD for 48TB and up to four users, making the solution perfect for smaller post-production houses, in-house creative, houses of worship, sports teams, ad agencies, and any creative user facility with more than one user looking for high-speed sharing at an affordable price”
