Orad, Isilon Offer Integrated Graphics Storage System
A new integrated graphics storage system is available from Orad Hi-Tec Systems Limited and Isilon Systems, enabling sports broadcasters to organize all their assets in a single location.
Broadcasters will be able to stream video clips that have been stored on Isilon’s systems directly to air using Orad’s Maestro and 3DPlay controllers. The clips will be fully integrated into the 3D graphics, either as a video background or a DVE effect, or as an integral part of the graphics themselves. This integrated solution is ideal for customers requiring high availability of media assets, reliability, and scalability.
Broadcasters will no longer have to rely on multiple, large local storage locations that need to be maintained and synchronized. The new solution will provide broadcasters with substantial scalability, enabling users to add more storage or to expand their output bandwidth while on air without stopping production, and to have all assets immediately available once published.
Avi Sharir, CEO and president of Orad Hi Tech Systems, says, “Orad is continuously striving to help broadcasters increase productivity and lower expenses. This new integrated solution will provide just that: scalability, reliability, efficiency, and cost effectiveness.”
“We are excited to be working with Orad,” adds Brad Winett, senior director of business development for Isilon Systems. “The combination of Orad’s leading broadcast graphics solutions and Isilon’s scale-out NAS solutions provide demonstrable and compelling value to leading media companies.”
