In many cases, work performed on a project takes place in multiple physical locations. Large production companies often have work going on in different buildings, cities or even countries. On the other end of the spectrum, innovative editors may do their best work using a home-based editing suite, only to ship it off for finishing by another specialist working from another home-based suite.

When Bipolar Studio started to expand their capabilities to include things like 8K & 10K resolutions and 32-bit VR CGI, they knew it would be impossible without the right shared storage solution. They needed a server that could not only help them get over the roadblocks in their current workflow but help them fully realize their potential.
Microsoft's Channel 9 is a full-blown production studio with over 3 million unique viewers every month. They deliver upwards of 100 videos in a given week, and they use EVO so that all of their raw footage, Premiere projects, graphics, and finished shows are safe and available from any machine, at any of their edit stations.
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.
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.
