Pixit Media, the pioneer of software-defined storage and data-management solutions for the Media and Entertainment industry, will unveil significant new features to its award-winning PixStor intelligent storage platform on Stand 7.D69 at IBC2019.
Purpose-built for Media and Entertainment, and fast becoming the storage platform of choice of major studios and international broadcasters, PixStor provides a future-proof and scalable environment that sits across and controls all commodity hardware, applications and systems in the workflow. It provides a unified view of all data in the global namespace – be that on-premise, multi-site, or in the Cloud – with unrivalled consistent guaranteed high-performance at point of use for all types of workflow.
Making its debut at IBC, the latest upgrade to PixStor simplifies storage management and global collaboration – offering a seamless user-experience from disk, desktop to the Cloud. With new secure container services aligned to audit-compliant standards, automated deployment to Cloud market-places and powerful AI-enabled Search, PixStor is an ideal solution for media organisations looking to streamline demanding Any-K workflows – saving both time and money.
New PixStor features include:
Secure container services: this new feature unlocks true multi-tenancy from a single storage fabric to enable broadcasters, studios and post-production organisations to easily deploy secure data environments, aligned to industry security standards – without crippling productivity and creativity.
Cloud workflow flexibility: PixStor expands your workflows cost-effectively into the cloud with fully-automated seamless deployment to cloud marketplaces, enabling hybrid workflows for burst render and cloud-first workflows. PixStor will be available in early September in Google Cloud Platform (GCP), followed by Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Enhanced search capabilities – using the latest machine learning and artificial intelligence cloud-based tools to drive powerful media indexing and search capabilities, PixStor users can perform fast, easy and accurate content searches across the entire global namespace.
Deep granular analytics– with “single pane of glass management” and user-friendly dashboards, PixStor provides a holistic view of the entire filesystem and delivers business-relevant metrics to reinforce storage strategies.
Live remote collaboration with Google Cloud
Visitors to IBC will see PixStor in action across a range of broadcast, post-production and VFX workflows – delivering efficiencies from ingest, processing, staging, production to archive.
The live demo will connect the company’s booth D69 in Hall 7 to the Pixit Media Lab in High Wycombe UK, where a complete real-world production environment has been created featuring a full complement of best-of-breed technologies, including NetApp E-series storage and Mellanox networking. The team will showcase management of the full content lifecycle from ingest via Google Cloud to multi-tenancy secure containers, enhanced search and global collaboration powered by Ngenea, Pixit Media’s flagship data traffic mechanism.
The team will be joined by development partner Escape Technology who will walk visitors through our recent joint customer successes.
Ben Leaver, Pixit Media’s CEO and co-founder explains, “This latest upgrade to PixStor shows our continued leadership in delivering customer-focused solutions that enable media workflows to thrive – without vendor lock-in or any compromise in performance. We are really looking forward to demonstrating these powerful new features at IBC, so come by stand 7.D69 to find out more.”
