LONGMONT, Colo., April 6, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Dot Hill Systems Corp. (Nasdaq: HILL), a leading provider of Unified Virtual Storage and SAN storage solutions, today announced it will be showcasing a newly tested and certified video post-production solution for Apple users at the forthcoming NAB Show, April 9-14, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth # SL10906. With nearly 90,000 attendees from 151 countries and more than 1,500 exhibitors, NAB (www.nabshow.com) is the world's largest show for digital media and entertainment. The solution combines Dot Hill's powerful AssuredSAN™ shared storage solution with ATTO Celerity Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs), Final Cut Pro editing software and Autodesk® Smoke® software.
Dot Hill's reliable, high performance AssuredSAN storage combined with ATTO 8Gb Fibre Channel HBAs delivers high performance network solution for Apple post-production editors looking to improve workflow and ease-of-use at an affordable price point. The solution has been fully tested and certified to easily integrate with Apple workstations running Mac OS X and the Apple Xsan file system.
AssuredSAN solutions are affordable and easy to set up and manage, making them a great fit for film professionals who want to spend their time creating art, not managing backend IT resources to support the process.
"Mac OS X Editing applications such as Final Cut Pro and Smoke are dominant forces in video post-production, and the driving forces behind hundreds of blockbuster films," said Jim Jonez, senior director of marketing, Dot Hill. "Dot Hill and ATTO are delivering a highly compelling shared storage solution which integrates easily into existing video post-production environments to support improved collaboration."
"Dot Hill AssuredSAN solutions deliver the performance, reliability and ease-of-use that video editors demand," said Neil Sullivan, senior account manager, G.W. Hannaway and Associates, an authorized Dot Hill partner that creates system solutions for the imaging and video marketplace. "By consolidating video into one shared, high performance storage system, editors can easily leverage previous works and work on the same segments at the same time. Rendering times are reduced and frames are not dropped saving countless, precious hours of troubleshooting and rework times."
