What’s the latest development at Quantum?


Xcellis is our brand new platform, built on StorNext 5. It really helps people with their entire media workflow from ingest, to editing, to special effects, transcoding and probably more importantly, archive. We’re certainly seeing the size of files increasing dramatically, as people are moving from HD (high-definition) to HDR (high-dynamic range), 2K, 4K, even up to 8K. The amount of the files, that they’re working with are so large that it puts a big bottleneck in their workflows, and long-term storage is quite expensive as well. With Xcellis and the StorNext 5 platform we’re able to help people speed up their time from creation to transmission and long time archive.
