Jigsaw24 Media agrees full-service partnership with pixitmedia

Agreement also coincides with Jigsaw24 Media’s first pixitmedia integration project, for London-based facility Fifty Fifty

Jigsaw24 Media has signed a deal to provide a full range of services from pixitmedia to the UK’s post production sector.

The new deal includes presales, systems integration and product support for pixitmedia’s storage and data solutions. The agreement also coincides with Jigsaw24 Media’s first pixitmedia integration project, for London-based facility Fifty Fifty.

“Storage may not be a sexy product, but the intelligent management of data across different storage systems that ngenea provides, along with pixstor’s 99 per cent performance guarantee, is a real differentiator,” said Jigsaw24 Media’s head of innovation, Chris Bailey. “The fact that almost all the high-end post production tools at IBC2022 were being backed by pixitstor and ngenea running on AWS was further evidence that pixitmedia’s products are a good fit for our clients.”

pixitmedia CEO and co-founder Ben Leaver added: “Jigsaw24 Media has an outstanding reputation in the UK post-production industry. Their technical expertise and extensive support team means that they’re able to provide the full cycle of services and support to our mutual customers.  We’re looking forward to a long and successful partnership.” 

Fifty Fifty approached the systems integrator looking for a single, high-res footage repository with access for all its high-performance finishing suites. The Jigsaw24 Media team put a hyperconverged solution together that will provide each suite with high-speed, native access to the material on pixstor, with ngenea automating the movement of media between Fifty Fifty’s NAS, Avid | NEXIS and pixstor storage.  

“My experience with pixstor at previous facilities has been exemplary and we know that we can trust Jigsaw24 Media to put forward the best solution for our requirements,” said Michael Sienczak, head of technical operations at Fifty Fifty.  “But the deciding factors were when the team demonstrated how ngenea automatically makes media available in anticipation of workflows and shared the future product development plans.  We’re confident that this solution will meet both our current and future needs.”
