Small Tree Helps Boutique Full-Service Production Facility Maximize its FlexibilityEdit at Joe s Equally Impressed by Company s Technology and Service (March 25, 2009) Edit at Joes has established a solid reputation for creating fun, imaginative and successful commercials for its local clients for more than five years. However, as its business has grown, increased volume and local storage for each edit suite frequently caused scheduling and workflow bottlenecks. To alleviate its workflow issues while providing greater flexibility, Edit at Joes recently installed a shared storage solution from Small Tree, designers of simple-to-install, inexpensive networking and shared storage products for professional video and audio editors using Mac OS X.
With an eye firmly fixed on the bottom line, Edit at Joes decided early on that it could not afford an expensive storage technology and requested Small Trees budget-friendly Edge-corE ES4524D and PEG4 solution, a part of Small Trees new GraniteSTOR product line. Since installing the 24-port Gigabit Ethernet switch and 4-port Ethernet card, Edit at Joes has been able to run 80 Gbps whether working on uncompressed standard definition or 422 Prores HQ without a hitch.
Small Trees technology allows file sharing across multiple workstations so that were able to turn projects around more easily, said Joe Murray, president of Edit at Joes. But its their commitment to customer support that has been the most pleasant surprise. I know Im certainly not their biggest customer, but they have spent as much time on the phone as necessary to make sure we were comfortable with the system after installation. That level of support is critical to a small facility such as mine, where I can little afford to have any of my rooms out of commission for even a short amount of time.
