Studio Network Solutions Improves Efficiency For VivendiWorkflow improvement not just a matter of fun and games (August 11, 2004)
If life were a video game, the editors in the video department at Vivendi Universal Games (VU Games) recently powered-up, increased their speed and have a greater chance of completing their mission on time, thanks to the addition of a five-seat Studio Network Solutions A/V SAN PRO system, a storage solution that provides multiple digital audio/video workstations with concurrent access to centralized storage at truly extraordinary speed and across multiple platforms.

The A/V SAN PROs cross platform capability, made possible through SNS SANmp multi-platform software, has greatly improved the efficiency of VU Games post-production efforts.
A/V SAN PRO is the storage solution used by world-renowned facilities such as Abbey Road, Sony/ATV, Wally's World, Vidfilm/Technicolor, and many others. The A/V SAN PRO has earned respect among industry leaders as being nothing less than bulletproof. Using fibre channel technology, A/V SAN PRO is a storage solution that provides multiple digital audio/video workstations concurrent access to centralized storage at truly extraordinary speed.
