FAIRFIELD IT GROUP USES SMALL TREE 6-PORT GbE CARDS TO FACILITATE FILM RESTORATION AT CINERICCards Provide Much Needed Bandwidth for Leading Film Restoration Firm (November 15, 2006)
DMN Newswire--2006-11-15--FairField IT Group, a Macintosh specialist group providing large-scale storage support, recently installed a 6-port Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) card into the data center at Cineric, the film industrys finest restoration and preservation facility. The card, from Small Tree Communications, the high-speed interconnect leader for Apple Mac OS X, was used to help address substantial daily bandwidth issues Cinerics editors were facing.
?When youre writing half-Terabyte files, youre going to get caught up with bandwidth problems, states David Osler, partner at FairField IT Group. ?Cineric has five workstations (two Apple Final Cut Pros, two da Vinci systems and one Discreet Lustre) that required dedicated Gigabit Ethernet to improve workflow efficiency. With Small Trees 6-port Gigabit Ethernet card, we were able to direct Gigabit runs to the primary workstations, alleviating the bottleneck in the network.
Located in New York City, Cineric is respected throughout the film industry for its craftsmanship and technical innovation. Having developed unique restoration processes, the company has restored more than 200 films, including ?Jason and the Argonauts, ?The Birds, ?American Graffiti and ?The Caine Mutiny.
