Isilon IQ to provide storage for Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium
Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium, the official Canadian broadcaster of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (Feb. 12-28), has selected Isilon IQ as the primary repository for all of its Winter Games raw footage and video package content.
With Isilon, the consortium will be able to unify hundreds of hours of broadcast coverage onto a single, high-performance, shared pool of storage. This will enable concurrent, multiuser access to content across the network, accelerating real-time editing and speeding content delivery.
During the Winter Games, the consortium will deploy Isilon IQ as the central content repository for its Video Gateway broadcast portal to streamline ingest, encoding, editing and delivery of both live and prepackaged coverage.
