SVG SportsTech On Demand: Quantum’s Skip Levens on CatDV Acquisition and the Launch of New StorNext Architecture, Appliances
While the 2021 NAB Show has been moved to October, the spring season will still feature a cavalcade of new product releases and groundbreaking news coming out of the broadcast technology sector. In an effort to keep the video-production community informed, SVG is hosting a series of SportsTech On Demand video interviews throughout April, May, and June with executives from the industry’s top technology vendors.
In this interview, Skip Levens, Quantum, Marketing Director, Media and Entertainment, addresses how the company’s recent acquisition of CatDV Asset Management combines with its StorNext file system for video workloads to create a full end-to-end production ecosystem. Levens details how the Sacramento Kings are already using CatDV and established Quantum products to enable groundbreaking new workflows.
In addition, Levens chats about the recent launch of a new StorNext architecture and line of StorNext appliances that simplify how organizations manage, store, and protect their video content, imagery, and business critical data. The Quantum H4000 Series of appliances combines the latest hardware technology with the company’s signature StorNext software and is based on a simplified and converged architecture that accelerates time to value, reduces power and cooling costs, eliminates networking complexity, and makes it easier to deploy StorNext for edge processing, remote production, and in the core data center. Levens illustrates how the new H4000 Series fits more needs for sports content creators in today’s rapidly accelerating landscape.
