SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- At NAB 2006, Exavio Inc. (Booth # SL585) will unveil innovative new workflows that leverage the ExaMax 9000 I/O Accelerator to deliver increased performance and efficiency in existing complex storage environments. The presentation will include an uncompressed HD workflow for Apple(R) Power Mac(R) with Xsan(R) and a multi-stream PC-based 2K digital intermediate (DI) workflow demonstration running off an accelerated storage area network.
"In the post production world, a manager's dream is to work in uncompressed HD or DI format, reading and writing data from a SAN with a true collaborative workflow," said Mike Moone, President and CEO of Exavio Inc. "That just hasn't been possible before because the infrastructure itself is proving to be a significant bottleneck. Exavio is enabling new postproduction and DI workflows to leap off the drawing board and be put to practical use today so facilities can adapt to take on the most demanding projects."
The ExaMax 9000 I/O Accelerator increases the performance of Apple XServe(R) RAID and Xsan(R) systems by a factor of more than 4X, providing facilities with a practical approach to building large, multi-seat HD collaborative workflows with Apple Power Mac Workstations and Final Cut Pro(R) Studio.
