4K and 8K footage. Live feeds. IP contribution. Scale-out storage lets you expand capacity by adding Media Packs to a storage engine, or more engines to a system, without downtime. While retaining a single pool of tiered storage—with the option for high availability—so you can shoot at higher resolutions without worry.

Get access to more of your media


Easily set up and move assets between multiple tiers of storage—online, nearline, and cloud—to better optimize and monetize content. Keep all your incoming, current, and historical media at your fingertips, giving you more options to create better content while eliminating the need to retrieve media from archive.

Power your workflow in the cloud
