Supports Mac OS 9, OS X, Microsoft Windows® 2000 and Windows XP

Las Vegas, Nevada, April 5, 2003 – At NAB 2003, Studio Network Solutions® (SNS) will feature SANmp™, its newest software application in booth #SL2636. This multi-platform software allows workstations with different operating systems to concurrently access information from a Storage Area Network. With SANmp, users now have the freedom to upgrade to the latest OS or to add Windows workstations to their Mac environment.

Eric Newbauer, SNS director of operations, views SANmp as the crucial component of a total solution for anyone concerned about storage system platform compatibility. “There is such a wide array of professional audio and video software available,” says Newbauer. “Facilities are finding that it is nearly impossible to commit to a single OS version or platform. At best, it is difficult to reliably make the myriad hardware and multiple operating systems work together, particularly when it comes to storage systems. With SANmp and our A/V SAN™ and A/V SAN PRO™, we have closed this gap by providing a truly multi-platform solution that isn’t proprietarily tied to a specific DAW, NLE or operating system.”

In addition, SANmp is quite easy to implement and maintain since it does not require a server or ethernet connection. And because the Mac and Windows versions of SANmp share a common user interface, it’s simple to use on either platform.

Among the many great features found in SANmp are the ability to configure, manage, share and access SAN resources, support RAIDs, and set access privileges at the user level. For most, the overwhelming benefit will be the ability to integrate Mac OS and Windows workstations regardless of whether the systems are running Nuendo, Sonic HD, Final Cut Pro, Pyramix, Avid, Pro Tools or virtually any other software.
