Small Tree’s Shared Storage and Archive Systems Improve Performance and Provide Peace of Mind for LionStar Films

Experiencing rapid growth, boutique production company LionStar Films required an affordable workflow system that would enable the Atlanta-based company’s editing team to work simultaneously on the same projects without the headache of copying and transferring content. To meet its growing project demands, LionStar installed a GraniteSTOR ST-RAID with 8 1TB drives, an Ethernet-based shared storage solution from Small Tree.

Specializing in broadcast programming and corporate communications production, LionStar Films’ client roster includes heavyweights such as HBO, NFL Network, Comcast, TaylorMade Golf and UPS. As project deadlines tightened, the company’s editing team understandably became increasingly frustrated with their previous setup. Today, all five of the agency’s workstations, including four iMac core i7 systems running Final Cup Pro 7, are connected to the ST-RAID and are running without issue, according to Ryan Seger, LionStar Films’ founder and owner.
