The benefits of FastNAS

GB Labs FastNAS

A short blog piece from GB Labs on its FastNAS high performance shared media storage, featuring advanced tools, RAID protection and Hybrid disk technology.

FastNAS – who is it for?

Almost all modern businesses require some form of shared storage to collaborate and efficiently manage their digital assets. Individual requirements vary but as technology moves forward, the size of our files, the quantity of assets we own and the inevitable management of those resources becomes more and more important.

So long and thanks for all the Flips

Today is the last day that Telestream's FlipFactory transcoding software can be purchased and I did not want to let this milestone pass without some comment. 

In 2000 the broadcast world was a totally different place. Broadcast servers had only baseband I/O, video on the web was in its infancy and certainly not a revenue earning activity, and a 'cloud' was something that spoiled picnics. But, at this time, Telestream saw where things were heading and the future was file. After successfully helping to change how media was delivered with their ClipMail product, Telestream moved focus to making transcoding an enterprise, server based activity that could be automated and was designed for volume and FlipFactory was born.

AES67 - All you need to know from Wheatstone

How much do you know about AES67? Our friends at Wheatstone breakdown what you need to know.

AES67-2013 may be the new IP audio standard that everyone’s talking about, but it didn’t take long for the various brand permutations to suck up all the oxygen in the room. These aren’t standards per se. They are IP audio network systems, WheatNet-IP included, that incorporate AES67 as a subset among other functions and connectivity options. So while you will have to forgive us for proselytizing our respective brands, it’s important to understand the significance of so many audio networks adopting and sharing this interoperability standard.

AES67 is everywhere. It’s in every major audio network, including our WheatNet-IP, which means that you’ll be able to transport audio between all these systems and other devices and peripheral gear that are connected to them. This IP audio transport standard was ratified in 2013 by the AES X-192 task force, of which Wheatstone was a member.

What will deliver the fidelity for those extra UHD pixels and at what cost?

Interesting UHD blog from Renne Varro at Harmonic.

The premise that more pixels doesn’t mean better pixels is now well recognised amongst those broadcasters and content aggregators contemplating launching UHD services. There have already been too many comparisons with “TrueHD services” to make the case that resolution alone doesn’t guarantee success for UHD! If we make the claim that we offer TrueHD services delivered using 10-15 Mbps, which is currently the upper limit for HD premium sports delivered using H.264, we can quantify fidelity at access bitrates appropriate for typical DTH or broadband delivery.
