BrightDrive overcomes the problems associated with handling the massive data files that are now involved in digital post techniques by serving - or sharing - media simultaneously across both Ethernet and Fibre Channel networks (NAS and SAN), taking advantage and overcoming the inherent limitations of both technologies. By allowing concurrent users simultaneous access to files across multiple platforms and in any format to 4k and beyond, customers will be able to make significant reductions in time to completion.
With an entry level price of only US$ 29,950, BrightDrive delivers powerful performance levels for a range of DI and data-centric applications including: disk-to-disk grading, uncompressed SD/HD (444/422) collaborative editing and finishing, film scanning, dust bust/dirt removal and quality control, technical grading, VFX sequence playback, virtual ?film-out, conforming, colour correction and mastering.
?The new BrightDrive family of shared media solutions is the result of breakthrough technology developed by our team of specialists who have dedicated their work to the study and refinement of digital file structures since the early 1980s, said Antony Harris, CEO, Bright Systems, Inc. ?We are now in a position to offer concurrency and scalability never before achieved, offering DI and post production facilities major improvements in workflow efficiencies.

Every installation is delivered with the BrightDrive Data Management Suite which comprises Data Mover, Data Optimizer and Data Wrangler, as well as secure, remote distributed system diagnostics to ensure reliable, consistent and uninterrupted high performance.
