Sony Electronics has made a strategic investment in Maximum Throughput, a developer of ultra high-performance software-based solutions for networked storage infrastructure and media management. Additional funding from the company’s current investors has also been secured.
John Scarcella, president of Sony’s Broadcast and Business Solutions Company, said Maximum Throughput’s solutions were complementary to Sony’s plans for developing an end-to-end 4K digital workflow.
At the NAB convention in April, both companies demonstrated a digital workflow. Content acquired in Sony’s HDCAM SR 4:4:4 format was digitized by the Max-T Sledgehammer system directly from the HDCAM SR tapes and made available across a local area network.
Besides Sony, Maximum Throughput’s current investors include The Business Development Bank of Canada, GTI Capital and EdgeStone Capital.
