Full Circle Post NYC has added an Archion EditStor to give it a shared media storage system with transparent Avid project sharing.
“We know it’s essential to keep up with the latest technology to meet our all of clients’ needs, particularly since so many of them are now editing as close to 4K as possible,” said Rob Burgos, the former senior editor who has owned Full Circle Post NYC since 2008. “At the same time, we need technology that becomes invisible in the creative process, while earning a discernable return on investment, which is very important to me as a user and the studio owner.
“That’s why we chose Archion’s EditStor for our collaborative storage needs over Avid ISIS and other vendors that claim to do the same,” he said. “Archion has established itself as an expert in media workflows, especially Avid. EditStor delivers the powerful combination of high speed, extensive media workflow features, outstanding ease of use and great bang for the buck.”
Realizing the large cost of an Avid ISIS system, Burgos was determined to learn about Archion's EditStor platform. Chief among his requirements was transparent Avid project sharing for both his Mac and PC workstations so that his creative team and customers would not have to adjust their Avid workflow. Aside from the large savings and ease of use, Burgos was very pleasantly surprised to learn that EditStor delivered nearly three times the bandwidth as ISIS. Archion EditStor has enabled him to network all of his creative workstations together, which includes almost 10 Avid Media Composer workstations, Avid Pro Tools®, Adobe® Premiere graphic stations and DaVinci Resolve.
“We are delighted to work with Full Circle Post NYC as their networked storage solution provider,” said Dan Stern, Vice President of Sales at Archion. “Like many Avid-centric facilities,they needed to know that EditStor would serve them like ISIS, which EditStor has far exceeded in performance, scalability and affordability. Full Circle Post is a key member of Archion’s growing family of leading media customers in New York, which includes enterprises like NBC Universal, that are leveraging EditStor’s advanced technology.
Full Circle handles a diverse array of projects, from industrials and commercials to TV shows for NBC, PBS, HBO, NatGeo, Food Network, HGTV, Discovery, Cooking Channel and HDNet; several of its documentaries that have been nominated for Academy Awards.
