Archion Technologies, a world leader in intelligent, high performance shared storage solutions for media workflows, has announced that its powerful Velo, Omni and Omni Hybrid NAS creative storage systems - designed for storage and playback of 4K digital video in post-production, production, graphics, finishing and all types of video media – have been certified for Telestream Vantage.

Telestream’s Vantage is a powerful, scalable, software-enabled media processing platform that manages all media services, from the camera to the point of distribution. It allows content owners, producers, and distributors to quickly, easily and cost-effectively ingest, edit, transform, package, monetize, and distribute their media.

“The Archion/Telestream combination makes for a very powerful 4K video storage workflow system.  Archion’s Editstor systems have all of the bandwidth upfront and thus our clients can get immediate performance for the Telestream Vantage Media Processing Platform. In addition, our standards-based networking allows the Telestream Lightspeed servers to be easily connected to 4 ports of high-speed 10gigE.  Multiple live streams and baseband capture with real time transcoding all become easy with Editstor systems’ massive throughput,” says James Tucci, Archion’s CTO, who oversaw the testing.

Tucci explains that the testing was comprehensive: Archion’s Telestream certification process consisted of Archion testing the Velo, Omni and Omni Hybrid 10gigE ports at line level, performing file movement tests between Vantage and Editstor, direct convert testing with ProRes files, transcoding, and creating and reading open files. “Our overall bandwidth with one port of 10gigE was 1000 MB/sec writes and 1200 reads - more than enough bandwidth for 4K Vantage Workflows. Using only one of Editstor’s four 10gigE ports shows Editstor’s ability to scale with Vantage servers,” he adds.

Better than real time performance is critical for Telestream and Vantage certification. The Direct Converter test clocks real-time performance and Editstor’s ability to work with real time writes. Archion’s baseline was a 6GB file and the test showed that Editstor was reading and writing 8.2 faster than real time. Both the transcode and open file ingest tests confirmed comparable results, concluding the very successful certification testing.

Reuben Lima, Archion’s CEO/Founder, said, “We are delighted to be certified for Telestream’s Vantage media processing platform. We look forward to offering media and corporate enterprises extraordinary 4K video storage bandwidth and functionality along with an automated 4K workflow that is unmatched.”
