ADDITIONAL SUPPORT MAKES 3D POST-PRODUCTION ACCESSIBLE TO WIDER VARIETY OF FACILITIES
Stand SL8410, NAB 2012
Bright Technologies, Inc., developer of advanced technology for shared media environments, announced today that its DataMover file management tool now supports HyperFS, a file system that simplifies the management of large files, while providing high-speed, low-latency file access across global repositories. The development broadens Bright’s reach by allowing DataMover customers to benefit from HyperFS’s Ethernet and Fibre Channel connectivity, and provides additional 3D capabilities via DataMover’s 3D Stereoscopic Optimizer. DataMover will be demonstrated on Bright’s booth # SL 8410 at NAB 2012.
DataMover is designed to maximize some of the most powerful elements of Bright’s data transfer technologies. Command-line user can leverage DataMover’s scripting option for innovative processes and customized workflow automation. Its file-format agnostic 3D Stereoscopic Optimizer feature reduces the need for excessive data shuffling for 3D projects by enabling content creators to merge 3D frames for optimized playback in one contiguous stream. This simplifies the workflow requirements of 3D post-production by significantly reducing manual effort while delivering optimized playback at the same time. DataMover therefore enables smaller post facilities to undertake 3D projects without having to dramatically increase their hardware commitments.
DataMover follows Bright’s basic principle of proactively preventing fragmented, randomized and interleaved file layout in the beginning by recognizing sequences. This unique feature makes it possible to manage file based sequences as if they are a single file.
HyperFS provides over 140 petabytes of scalable storage capacity and multiple gigabyte transmission bandwidth, and supports massive data sets, single files as large as 32TB, and concurrent heterogeneous multi-user access. Users are able to utilize storage resources more efficiently and share data from a single consolidated pool, thereby alleviating operational challenges and reducing operational costs. HyperFS provides full storage subsystem independence and support for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux clients.
