Quantel Systems Certified for SGI Integration
After extensive compatibility testing, Quantel's iQT Digital Intermediate system and eQ HD editing system are certified for integration with SGI InfiniteStorage systems that feature the SGI InfiniteStorage Shared Filesystem CXFST. The combination of the two technologies enables the handling and networking of Terabytes of data, a post facility pre-requisite.
SGI's shared filesystem supports operating systems such as Irix, Windows, 32-bit and 64-bit Linux and Mac OS X. iQ and SGI SAN systems have been in use at The Film Unit in New Zealand, owned by "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson. The company will feature the Quantel iQ as a client in its digital infrastructure demo at NAB2004.
