Globalstor, ASSIMILATE demonstrate 4K DI workflow at HD EXPO
Globalstor Data’s ExtremeStor-4K video storage and playback workstation was responsible for driving a series of 4K demonstrations at HD EXPO earlier this month in Burbank, CA.
The demonstrations, conducted simultaneously by Globalstor and ASSIMILATE at their booths, featured the ExtremeStor-4K running the SCRATCH Digital Process Solution Version 5.0, ASSIMILATE’s data workflow and post-production software, outputting to IGI’s PowerWindow | 4K display solution.
The system delivered a full 4K DI workflow in real-time, from conform to color-grading, playback, finishing, client reviews and output. This level of performance is made possible in part due to Globalstor's use of new SSD drive technology, which can process extremely large, uncompressed files in real time and requires fewer individual drives.
