Turner Studios transforms media production, distribution with Isilon IQ
Turner Studios, the in-house production facility of Turner Broadcasting System, has deployed Isilon IQ clustered storage as one of its primary media repositories to accelerate the delivery of digital and HDTV programming and products to the marketplace.
By unifying its media stores onto a single, high-performance, scalable, shared pool of Isilon clustered storage, Turner Studios can easily manage and quickly access its digital media content to create TV programs and other media.
Turner Studios has connected its Apple Final Cut Pro systems directly to Isilon IQ to create an active editorial system, making its HD media immediately accessible and eliminating the need to transfer files before editing. By playing the material directly off the Isilon system, Turner Studios has created a more efficient editorial workflow.
