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.

With their new EVO in place, the editors, designers, and producers at Creative Liquid can now work directly from a centralized location with access to all of their digital assets.

The BCM studio is setup to enable any workstation to work on any application, and every room in the facility allows for 4K & HD output.

"Being able to protect our projects is big," says Biscardi. "More than anything it's huge peace of mind. The project locking is taking care of the kinds of things you don't want to think about while you're working."
