Maryland Public Television Standardizes on Facilis TerraBlock Shared Storage
Moved 60 TB within a week
February 18, 2014
MASS. —Maryland Public Television recently installed a
144 TB Facilis TerraBlock shared storage environment in its post production
facility to increase capacity, accelerate post production and enhance project
collaboration. From series “Outdoors Maryland” to “Chesapeake Collectables,”
the systems will play an integral role in MPT’s creation of weekly programming. MPT also is using the TerraBlock systems in
production on national programs such as “MotorWeek,” and the
soon-to-be-released children’s science show “Space Racers” that will be shared
with PBS affiliates across the United States.
The installation required the transfer of 60 TB of data from MPT’s former
storage solution to the TerraBlock environment; Reseller Digital Video Group had the system up in less than a
week. Now at the helm of MPT’s
facility setup, the TerraBlock network is connected via 8 Gb Fibre Channel to
eight Avid Symphony workstations, six Avid Media
Composer suites, two Avid Pro Tools stations for
audio post and two Avid Deko graphics systems. A Mac system running
the Adobe® Creative Suite, Storage DNA for digital archiving
and a Digital Rapids encoder are also linked to the TerraBlock environment.
