The Ark Post Production Deploys Quantum’s Lattus Object Storage for Advanced Digital Asset Preservation Also Selects Quantum StorNext Technology to Manage Entire Collaborative Media Workflow From Digital Content Ingest to Delivery and Archive.
Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM), a proven global expert in big data management and data protection, today announced that The Ark Post Production has implemented Quantum’s Lattus-M object storage and StorNext® appliances to manage, share and preserve its volumes of digital assets and provide a seamless and efficient end-to-end media workflow. Established in 2002, The Ark is one of London’s leading post production facilities with two sites in SoHo that manage the duplication, conversion, encoding, transcoding and editing of digital media.
Faced with tightening production deadlines and growing amounts of media content to manage in various formats, such as 2K, 4K, HD and SD, The Ark required a solution capable of handling a multi-petabyte archive of digital assets while also providing self-healing, self-protection and fast retrieval times. Additionally, content creators and video editors needed to seamlessly and immediately access and share content across a variety of editing and VFX applications, such as Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer, where each toolset is supported by different operating systems.
