Shared storage for remote post set-up F acilis TerraBlock has provided a shared storage solution for two ABC Studios series in Burbank, CA as part of a new workflow process that provides an integrated remote post set up that includes editorial, online, titling, color, dailies and VFX.  Designed by post production, consulting and software development company DigitalFilm Tree (DFT), the pipeline was originally outfitted with TerraBlock because of the systems small form factor, high-capacity and performance. First implemented in September 2012, TerraBlock has already proven successful in facilitating the workflow for DFT on the ABC series Mistresses and Perception.  It’s a Technicolor whodunit! T echnicolor completed grading and re-recording for the latest feature length episodes of ITV’s acclaimed Poirot and Marple murder-mysteries. Technicolor provided sound and visual post on all eight episodes for both series from its Lexington Street facility in Soho, London, which now also offers sound services. With support for 4TB drives, TerraBlock fits 96 terabytes into a single 5RU, 24-drive chassis providing all of the bandwidth and storage necessary for a full show season, while also reducing the power consumption and heat emission from that of a traditional SAN. This robust and compact design allows post production teams to easily complete on- set dailies. Once filming is wrapped, hard drives with RAW Apple ProRes 444 footage are loaded into the TerraBlock for the dailies to be processed. 26 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 79 JULY 2013 TV-BAY079JUL13.indd 26 09/07/2013 16:51
