Field 2 Shows Its Power at NAB 2014

Boasts support for Solid State Drives, runs on EditShare?s new ground-breaking Storage v7 platform, and sports a brand new, (April 01, 2014)
DMN Newswire--2014-4-1--

EditShare®, the technology leader in shared media storage and end-to-end tapeless workflow solutions, is showcasing its updated Field 2 portable shared storage solution at NAB 2014 (booth SL5709). The Field 2 release dons a new, modern design that enhances the aesthetic of any production workspace, operates on the brand new EditShare Storage v7 platform, and supports Solid State Drives (SSDs), offering users up to six-times the performance as compared to the enterprise-class 7200 RPM drives.


?Our customers are deploying Field 2 for a wide range of productions ? in environments ranging from broadcast trucks and sporting events to corporate offices and small post-production facilities,? comments Andy Liebman, founder and CEO, EditShare. ?A Field 2 with Solid State Drives is ideal for any workgroup that demands the greatest possible performance in a small, portable box. An eight-drive Field 2 with SSDs can support nearly 50 streams of ProRes 422 or Avid DNxHD® 145, or over 140 streams of 25-Mbit video such as DV25 or XDCAM-EX 25. In fact, the new Field 2 with SSDs is so powerful that just to make a point, we are running our entire NAB 2014 booth off a single Field 2 shared storage unit.?



All of the 1-Gigabit and 10-Gigabit attached NLE workstations as well as the ingest and playout servers at EditShare?s NAB 2014 booth are powered by a single Field 2 shared storage server running with eight SSDs. Attendees can book a demonstration to see the new Field 2 in action by clicking: http://www.editshare.com/about/about-us/book-demo-nab.


In addition to the new look and support for SSDs, Field 2 now runs on EditShare Storage v7, the company?s new shared storage release. EditShare Storage v7 is built on the newest high-performance Linux kernel to deliver higher-than-ever stream counts and smoother operation. The enhanced operating system incorporates a new Quality of Service (QoS) module that allows users to reserve bandwidth for high-priority activities, such as real-time capture or playout, while limiting the bandwidth of low-priority activities. At the network layer, EditShare Storage v7 supports the SMB2 networking protocol, enabling uncompressed 4K over 40-Gigabit Ethernet as well as improved stream counts with standard 1-Gigabit and 10-Gigabit connections.


Other new high-value features include EditShare Connect ?Project Profiles,? a feature that allows administrators to define, by user, which media spaces are mounted and visible upon login; support for Active Directory Single Sign-On (SSO); a system status indicator; and localization support for virtually any language. In addition, EditShare Storage v7 enables Final Cut Pro® X workgroups to use AFP-mounted spaces as SAN Volumes, giving editors the ability to store FCP X ?Libraries,? ?Events? and ?Projects? on central storage.
