With 2500 MB/second from a single 16 bay chassis and up to 5000 MB/second with expansion chassis, 4K worries is a thing of the past.
EditStor Velo delivers these high speeds in multi-write modes supporting as many as 40 UltraHD 4k streams in a collaborative environment.
All media professionals utilizing such creative tools as Adobe Premiere® and After Affects®, Avid Media Composer® and ProTools®, Apple
Final Cut X®, Autodesk Smoke®, Blackmagic Resolve and other popular finishing tools, can greatly benefit from EditStor Velo. From low cost
standard Ethernet for offline workflows, to 10GigE connectivity for color correction and other finishing demands to 40GigE for switch utilization,
EditStor Velo provides the essential networking. While four (4) 10GigE ports is standard on EditStor Velo, you can now directly connect up to
16 workstations, via 10GigE or GigE.
The flexibility of EditStor Velo is truly unmatched for media workflows. With a comprehensive, yet easy to use, GUI, connecting up an unlimited
number Windows, Macintosh and Linux clients is simple; there are no drivers, installers or client licenses required. EditStor Velo supports industry standard IT file transfer protocols simultaneously for maximum connectivity to and integration of the servers and workstations that drive
your workflow, including such devices as ingest & playout servers or asset management systems
Adding to this is a broad spectrum of media management features. This begins with ability to create shared volumes of any size while also having the convenience of being able to expand those volumes on the fly without downtime and performance degradation. EditStor Velo expansion
chassis can also be added to the same volume group or separate without shutting down or stopping work. This volume and storage expansion
is all managed through a web based administrator interface without impacting the workflow. In addition, EditStor Velo offers a comprehensive
set of user and group management, as well as user security and access. This includes the support of both an internal or external LDAP protocol. Archion also extends sharing to projects with the APS Shareconnector™ Tool.
When it comes to the copy, migration and back up of your media, EditStor Velo has all the automation tools of an enterprise storage server, including storage pools, volume replication and snapshot, data replication, volume manager, virtual tape volumes (created in the system), as well
as direct and fast tape backup (LTO/LTFS) for long term archive. EditStor Velo automates the back up of media to tape as well as the retrieval
of media from tape
