Framestore chose the 24-bay edition of ELEMENTS ONE as a fast, scalable and easy-to-use server and storage solution. XTFX worked with Framestore’s in-house engineers to design and install the shared storage infrastructure that currently incorporates their existing Avid suites. Framestore’s engineering team plans to connect various VFX suites via 40 gigabit Ethernet in the near future.
“ELEMENTS ONE is the ideal match for our requirements,” says Framestore CTO Steve McPherson. “It offers an intelligent and convenient solution loaded with features that enhance and simplify our workflow. Especially the Avid bin-locking and Avid project sharing support of ELEMENTS ONE are a huge benefit to us.”
Besides featuring native media sharing, enabling all connected clients to access all files through a truly shared file system and storage, ELEMENTS ONE provides 360 TB of shared storage in 4 RU. It supports virtually all protocols, operating systems and nonlinear editing applications, allowing for an easy and flexible setup.
ELEMENTS ONE simplifies and enhances every workflow by providing a full package of web-based workflow enhancement and management tools and features, like a Media Library with an embedded editing tool.
