Emmy Award-Winning Evolution Media Looks to Small Tree for Cost-Effective Shared Storage SolutionPost-Production Company Needs Affordable Solution to Continue Growth (January 20, 2009)
Designer of simple-to-install, inexpensive networking and shared storage products for professional video and audio editors using Mac OS X, Small Tree provided Evolution Media with a bundled Ethernet solution reaching Fibre Channel performance. To facilitate workflow, Bob Zelin, a respected independent video engineer with more than 30 years experience, installed Small Trees Edge-corE ES4524D, a 24-port Gigabit Ethernet switch, along with its PEG4, a 4-port Ethernet card.
Founded in 2004, Evolution Media currently runs Final Cut Pro Studio 2 on Mac Pros in two of its three editing suites. As it continues to take on more HD projects, the company will look to run Final Cut Pro across all three of its rooms.
Were doing more and more HD work, so it was critical that we have technology that would enable us to work on large file projects simultaneously, said Kalinoski. Originally, I thought I would need to spend between $30,000 and $40,000 to achieve the performance I was looking for. However, after hearing from Bob on how effective Small Trees solution has been for so many other similarly sized facilities, we decided to give it a shot. Weve definitely noticed a difference in our workflow and have had no difficulties running both rooms concurrently.
