Twin Cities Public TV Installs Small Tree ST-RAID II to Provide Essential Shared Storage Workflow on Popular New ProgramSolution Meets Station`s Workflow and Budgetary Requirements (June 06, 2011) GraniteSTOR ST-RAID II Ethernet-based shared storage system for Mac users when a new project required that multiple producers and editors have simultaneous access to content files.
MN Original, TPT’s weekly celebration of Minnesota artists, recently concluded its first season. Responsible for producing a 30-minute show each week, TPT could no longer rely on its traditional editing approach to meet the production deadline for its popular new program. Given the workflow requirements for the five-person editing team and the strict budgetary limitations, TPT needed a cost-efficient solution that would maximize the team’s capabilities and productivity.
Capitalizing on the ubiquity of Ethernet, TPT was able to install a 48 TB ST-RAID II shared storage solution from Small Tree. According to Bruce Jacobs, chief technologist at TPT and a former PBS Technologist of the Year honoree, ST-RAID II has handled everything the station’s professionals have thrown at it, thereby enabling the team to meet the challenges of producing a weekly show without negatively impacting its bottom line.
MN Original is made possible by the Arts & Cultural Heritage Fund and the Citizens of Minnesota. The show inspires viewers to think about the arts in new ways, increases visibility of Minnesota artists and arts venues and cultivates new audiences by promoting a deeper understanding of the creative process.
