VICE Media has chosen Pixit Media’s PixStor software-defined storage system from UK-based IT infrastructure and technical solution specialists ERA for the new VICELAND channel in Benelux.
The PixStor system will be installed and implemented on-site by ERA, specialists in image-centric IT solutions for the creative industries. The new installation is particularly aimed at enhancing VICELAND’s 4K capabilities.
“We need a robust, central solution that will provide workflow storage to include transcoding, QC, MAM connectivity, editing and other applications that will run off the system,” said Tim Bertioli, Vice's VP of international operations.
“Based on ERA’s deep understanding of our workflow requirements, and the recent success of the implementation of a similar PixStor system at VICELAND UK, it quickly became apparent that ERA could deliver precisely what we needed.”
“PixStor is well known for providing exceptionally high reliability, performance, and ease of integration with existing infrastructures,” said Sean Baker, commercial director at ERA. “VICELAND’s client base typically work across all popular IT operating systems platforms, and by coupling our expertise with PixStor’s proven operational track record, we can deliver a storage system that will provide exactly what is required today with a straight-line map for future expansion.”
