Red Bee Media has announced a new strategic partnership with Pixit Media to deliver managed services across its multi-regional playout facilities.

In order to streamline workflows and protect customers’ high-value assets to the highest security standards, Red Bee has deployed Pixit Media’s PixStor as the central storage platform that underpins its playout infrastructure.

Pixit Media has enhanced the PixStor platform to deliver secure multi-tenancy capabilities within a single storage namespace. Using PixStor, Red Bee can now rapidly deploy logical data separation and isolation within its unified PixStor environment.

PixStor has been deployed at Red Bee Media playout centres in Sweden and the UK, including its London-based Red Lab R&D facility, with other sites to follow.

“Red Bee’s offering is at the forefront of the industry and we are delighted to be collaborating so closely with them to develop and deliver new workflow solutions,” said Pixit Media CEO Ben Leaver. “With PixStor at the heart of their software-defined infrastructure, we are able to help Red Bee remain agile, flexible, and responsive to their customer needs.”

“With PixStor, we have a proven highly resilient storage architecture upon which we can rely,” added Red Bee Media chief product and technology officer Dave Travis. “Combine this with Pixit Media’s consultative approach, access to their workflow experts and 24/7 support services, we also have a responsive technology partner to help us reap the benefits and future possibilities of a software-defined environment. They’re a great team to work with.”
