Mekaniken Opens Up Shared Storage with the New Avid ISIS 5000

Date: 20/09/2010
Mekaniken, one of the largest post-production houses in Sweden, has become the first Scandinavian facility to invest in the recently launched Avid ISIS 5000 shared storage system. The new 64TB system will give Mekaniken the flexibility of up to 40 client connections and the benefit of a shared storage solution thats easy-to-use, lower cost and has an open architecture, allowing it to be fully integrated with Avid and third-party solutions.

Avids beta testing programme really enabled us to gain an invaluable insight into the capabilities of the ISIS 5000 and how it would seamlessly fit into our production pipeline, comments Henrik Cednert, CTO & compositor, at Mekaniken. We were really impressed with the flexibility, power and reliability of this storage system. When you work on the variety of projects that we do - which all require a fast turnaround - its vital that we have a storage solution thats open, can meet the demands of our workflow and boost our productivity. The ISIS 5000 suits this need perfectly. 

Built upon proven ISIS technology, ISIS 5000s support for Avid and third-party applications means that Mekaniken has been able to integrate it seamlessly with its 30 plus Avid Media Composer edit suites, Apple Final Cut Pro editing workstations and  two Avid Symphony Nitris finishing systems. Openness was a deciding factor when we were making our investment choice. We evaluated EditShares offering, but the ISIS 5000 exceeded our needs and was a cost-effective choice. The ability to effectively try before we buy was also a real selling point, continued Cednert.

Mekaniken works on some of the most high-profile programmes on Scandinavian television -including Idol, Eternal glory, Verdict Revised, Luxury Trap and Stars of the Castle. Its music video credits include Madonna, U2 and Metallica.

Gigcasters Achieves Broadcast Quality Live Streaming with the Zixi OnAir Mobile App

Gigcasters, a live streaming engineering company, has seen mobile production increase during the pandemic and witnessed first-hand the benefits of higher frequency, lower cost productions using Zixi’s OnAir app infrastructure. The company first tried live video delivery remotely using laptops and WebRTC, but found the reliability of the feed was not good, and packet loss and image quality were insufficient. Once the Zixi OnAir app was quickly enabled on local production teams’ mobile phones, getting a broadcast-quality feed was easy.
