Toyota Motor manufacturing Purchases 2 Accom Affinity SAN Systems

(September 04, 2001)
Accom announced that Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky has purchased two AFFINITY/san (Storage Area Network) systems, a high-performance collaborative multi-user real-time non-linear editing environment for its Corporate Communications Department centered in Georgetown, Kentucky.

AFFINITY/san is an environment that allows real-time, high-bandwidth access to multiple users simultaneously.
The Corporate Communications Department of TMMK produces internal videos, training communication as well as an internal television network. By using an AFFINITY/san system, Toyota has been able to increase their production capabilities as well as accelerate their editing process.

Allowing multiple users simultaneous use of the same project files and media assets, AFFINITY/san has greatly increased the efficiency of TMMKs post-production workflow. "Here at Toyota we are always looking at how we can produce videos more efficiently and the AFFINITY/san has helped our hours of work per minute of finished video decrease tremendously," commented Hood.

AFFINITY/san is a high-end editing system with real-time video and key on background and overlay tracks, real time titles, Abekas Powered frame-based DveousFX warps, lighting and textures and 100 layer single-pass compositing with interactive full-motion alpha keys. With files stored in native QuickTime format, providing seamless interchange with all leading graphics and effects applications, and unprecedented low storage costs, AFFINITY/san offers greater power, flexibility and value than any other non-linear editing system.
