During the recent unveiling of the Apple Mac OS X Server Snow Leopard product, Small Tree’s PEG6, a six-port Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) adapter, was recognized as a critical factor in Snow Leopard achieving SPEC benchmarking speeds twice as fast as its predecessor. Now the general public knows what an increasing number of post-production professionals across the country know – Small Tree networking and shared storage technology enables your data to move as fast as it possibly can.
A key component in Small Tree’s expanding GraniteSTOR product line, the PEG6 is ideally suited for file serving workflows that require high bandwidth real time connectivity with high port density providing the maximum network throughput from today’s high-end OS X systems. Bob Zelin, a respected independent video engineer with more than 30 years experience in the television industry, has been utilizing Small Tree’s PEG6, along with the company’s other GbE products exclusively in facility installations to improve workflow, including FOX Sports Florida, EA Tiburon and Disney Broadcast Operations.
“It comes as no surprise to me that Apple would utilize Small Tree’s PEG6 to increase data flow,” said Zelin. “I’ve been recommending the company’s technology to post-production clients who are experiencing productivity issues in their studios for over a year now. Their affordable products combined with exceptional support are a sure win for my customers. ”
