Defined and designed from its core to address their needs, the groundbreaking MAXcluster offers enormous scaleable space and real-time throughput provisioning. Further, this industry-specific solution boasts of a feature unseen in the market before, and we expect this to change the standards for this networked solutions," said Giovanni Tagliamonti, CEO, Max-T.

Post production and broadcasters need to deal with huge amounts of media that must be simultaneously accessed by many facility resources and in a cost effective fashion. MAXcluster delivers the highest level of throughput available today, and scales to petabytes of capacity and tens of gigabytes/sec. of network throughput. In addition to a scaleable storage space and real-time throughput provisioning, MAXcluster has a revolutionary capability built into its system, which allows specifics levels of throughput to selected network clients, even while the cluster continues to deliver file-based access to other users. MAXcluster can be fully configured and tailored to any facility's needs, including storage capacity, throughput, concurrent real-time users, and video I/O nodes for any video resolution, adding versatility to its impressive storage and real-time capabilities.

Commenting on the impressive performance of MAXcluster, Corey Stewart, the Director of Systems Engineering at Postworks, New York (www.pwny.com), said, "We've had MAXcluster installed since January of this year, and as we ramp up its integration into the facility, we're more amazed every day at what it can do. Through MAXcluster, we are able to access the system concurrently for real time film scanning and color grading, even while multiple artists are using the same material, plus we can also make real time HD masters of stored 2K material on the fly. We see this as the future of our film-based Digital Intermediate and digital dailies work."
