Facilis TerraBlock 2.0 Included in AJA 2K DI Workflow Demo

Demonstration of Complimentary Products for 2K/4K and SD/HD Workflow (April 24, 2006)

NAB 2006, Las Vegas, NV, April 24, 2006 Facilis Technology will participate in demonstrations of 2K Digital Intermediate workflow at NAB using AJAs KONA 3 and XENA hardware with Facilis Technologys TerraBlock 2.0. Together, these products represent a powerful environment for film and high-bandwidth video finishing.

Demonstrations will take place at NAB 2006, April 24-27 in Las Vegas, at Booth SL4913 and SL1600.

"There is great synergy between AJAs product lines and the Facilis TerraBlock, and were pleased to offer real-time demos at NAB 2006, ? said Nick Rashby, director of sales and marketing, AJA. "These systems give post-production facilities a robust hardware solution for 2K/4K and SD/HD workflow enhancements and give editors and producers full scalability and flexibility at affordable prices."

Facilis Technologys TerraBlock 2.0 is ideal for uncompressed SD/HD and 2K DI workgroups, as are AJAs product lines. In TerraBlock 2.0, ?Tandem spanned volumes increase available bandwidth by as much as four times, and the new Dyna-RAID technology allows users to dial-in different levels of data protection on a per volume basis, including Parity RAID5.

?After hearing how well Facilis and AJA systems combined in the field, we were happy to be included as a preferred SAN storage for AJAs flagship products, said Jim McKenna, vice president of marketing at Facilis Technology. ?A significant portion of our customer base has integrated AJAs products into TerraBlock environments, creating complete solutions with excellent price-performance and flexibility.
