COMPACT AND POWERFUL APPLIANCES TARGET MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY
Reno, USA-- Bright Technologies, Inc., developer of advanced technology for shared media, has announced plans to present its new generation of BrightDrive servers at NAB 2012. Designed and developed to address the rigorous demands of the media and entertainment industry, BrightDrive Procyon and BrightDrive Triton answer the industry’s need for economical, compact, eco-friendly media file servers with a unique set of features and functionalities that dramatically increase productivity and maximize profitability via real-time collaboration between all clients.
The servers incorporate Bright’s best-of-class software, including the astonishing new patent-pending BrightClip 2.0 advanced recording technology. The latest BrightClip release is faster and smarter than ever. More than just file allocation, it permanently overcomes the industry-wide problem of degradation by eliminating fragmentation, randomization and inter-leaved frames.
BrightDrive Procyon, the next generation of Bright’s G2 Pro, packs a powerful punch from a compact 3U footprint. The high-availability server utilizes integrated connectivity, eliminating the need for extraneous components, to offer an outstanding out-of-the-box experience. Procyon features a groundbreaking hardware platform plus a current and stable software foundation – including support of StorNext 4.2.
The new BrightDrive Triton elevates BrightDrive G2, its predecessor, to a higher level. The new server answers the need for an attractively priced, green solution that only occupies a single rack unit. Triton also supports StorNext 4.2.
In addition to their fresh look, BrightDrive’s Procyon and Triton eco-friendly designs lower cooling requirements and significantly reduce power costs. The servers’ agnostic architecture allow facilities to seamlessly interface with their preferred applications, protocol, resolution, and formats, eliminating the need for investment in new storage. They offer the highest level of operational stability, consistent and predictable performance, and high-speed access for all users at all times. Both BrightDrives are equipped with incomparable GUI’s (graphical user interfaces) for monitoring and administration.
