What Sets SNS Apart?

“What sets you apart from your competition?”

That’s something we hear often when we’re talking with people who are just learning about SNS.

We take this question introspectively to be as much about who we are as a company as it is about the differentiation and comparison of our shared storage products to others. So in this post we’re going to talk about our company’s unique background and highlight some reasons users give for choosing SNS and our products over other options.

Is Shared Storage Workflow Missing from your Media Production Curriculum?

There’s no shortage of demand for the skills necessary to professionally package and present content, which is why more and more educators are embracing media production in their mass communications & journalism curriculums. Today, hundreds of universities and even high schools now offer film/video production courses and degrees.

It’s not just for film schools anymore.

FCPX and Transitioning to Deconsolidated Libraries for Shared Storage

With the introduction of shared storage into a Final Cut Pro X team, workflows tend to open up and become more sophisticated.

Smaller workgroups usually begin by keeping FCPX libraries and their corresponding media in the localized, self-contained bundles FCPX uses by default. This is a logical way to work for very small teams, especially when there’s no shared storage. But, while this works acceptably for smaller, condensed environments, this workflow shows itself to be less efficient with the addition of network storage and increased users/collaboration. As your team grows and more users need more assets, it can be better to have media stored separately from libraries.

CASE STUDIES

Ignition Productions Uses EVO for On-Location Coverage with Red Bull TV

Ignition Productions was awarded the contract to cover the 2017 Dakar Rally for Red Bull TV—a daily behind-the-scenes show of the world's toughest Motorsport event. They had to shoot over 13 days of competition across three countries, in some of the harshest conditions imaginable, with temperatures ranging from 122°F to near freezing, sometimes in altitudes over 3500m, an extreme feat for even the most adventurous crews.

Texas Christian University Drafts EVO For A New Sports Video Team

After months of research and evaluating products, TCU decided on the EVO 16 Bay Shared Storage Server. “EVO and its ShareBrowser software allows us to log our footage and add metadata, and it’s all searchable,” says Salters. Each EVO system includes unlimited licenses of ShareBrowser, an intuitive asset management software that lets search, tag, index, and preview media across all of their storage — something that was vital for the TCU team.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s Production Company Turns to EVO for High-Speed Post Workflow

Launched in 2004, Hammerhead’s initial purpose was to give Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR’s Most Popular Driver every year since 2003, more creative control over his personal brand. But just as Junior doesn’t just “race cars,” Hammerhead Entertainment doesn’t just “film endorsements.” The studio is creating branded content for a variety of clients — from the National Guard to Nickelodeon and PepsiCo to Penske.
