First StorNext-based media storage solution integrates Pixspan’s PixMover™, unique lossless compression software enabling customers to save up to 80% of storage capacity
Dusseldorf, Germany, Sep 1, 2016: ELEMENTS, developer of advanced solutions for unrestricted collaboration in shared media workflows, has announced the integration of Pixspan’s PixMover™, software that provides Bit Exact Round Trip™ encoding and decoding for handling full-resolution images, saving typically 50-80% of storage and networking resources. ELEMENTS has embedded the powerful software solution in all its breakthrough appliances, providing post-production and broadcast facilities with increased real-time transfer speeds and substantially enhanced storage space usability. When using Pixspan’s container format, less space is required on the central storage, and less bandwidth is needed when transferring, hence the ability to move data significantly faster across the network.
With image resolutions constantly on the rise, and an increasing number of production and post-productions projects being processed in 2K, 4K and up, media storage capacity becomes very precious. “Aside from offering a highly professional and extremely efficient technology that helps to alleviate the problem, Pixspan is just as dedicated to enhance media workflows as ELEMENTS is.” says André Kamps, CEO of German-based manufacturer ELEMENTS. “Thus, our technologies are a perfect match, and we are confident that our customers will appreciate the tremendous benefits Pixspan adds to ELEMENTS media storage solutions.” he adds.
ELEMENTS provides users with a comprehensive set of workflow enhancement tools, including the Media Library, a comprehensive media asset management and editing tool. Equipped with a full-text search engine, a file manager and task management tool for customized workflow automation, the web-based Media Library caters to every important step of a digital post-production workflow and offers unique features that significantly simplify and streamline everyday tasks and approval processes.
ELEMENTS media storage solutions with Pixspan are available immediately and will be demonstrated at IBC in ELEMENTS’ stand #7.B08 in the RAI convention center.
