As content is acquired, Xtarget can share Thunderbolt drives to a workgroup in a hotel room or mobile rig. The benefits being that multiple laptops can start to log, catalog, encode and transcode, develop scripts and stories, and even create rough edits before the content makes it to the post facility for post production.
Client Content Acquisition
Many clients are providing file based content to post facilities on portable drives. By placing the drive on the network via Xtarget, you can start to Ingest, transcode and encode from multiple workstations and servers within minutes of ingest.
Time Machine Backup
Use Xtarget to setup a shared, consolidated TMB server for multiple users – each user can have his own password-protected iSCSI volume for Time Machine, without the hassle of direct-attached external disks.
Huge iPhoto library? No problem! Put it on an Xtarget-shared volume for fast and easy accessibility by anyone in your workgroup. You can even setup the permissions so that only certain people can make changes to the library!
