SNS Announces EVO Certification with Telestream’s Vantage ® Media Processing Platform

Studio Network Solutions’ EVO shared storage systems achieve official Vantage Storage Certification

St Louis, Missouri, June 8 — Studio Network Solutions (SNS), a worldwide provider of shared storage hardware and software for professional media teams, announced today that their EVO shared storage products are officially certified with Telestream’s Vantage, the leading video transcoding and file-based workflow automation solution.

“We are very proud to work on this integration with Telestream. Like EVO, Vantage is a product that has proven its reliability among some of the most prestigious media companies in the world. So we see this integration as a complementary solution that can bring a lot of value to both of our customer bases,” said Loring Weinkauf, Studio Network Solutions’ Workflow and Products Integration Manager. “With this certification we deepen our relationship not only with Telestream, but with many diverse companies in our industry who play a significant role in advanced media workflows.”

As post-production and broadcast become increasingly advanced, it’s more important than ever that technology companies work together to provide collaborative solutions across multiple products. A typical environment in which Vantage is deployed usually features several other product layers throughout the workflow. This is why Telestream already partners with more than 50 other leading technology manufacturers including Grass Valley, Aspera, Signiant, EVS, Ross Video, and Vizrt.

“Central storage has become a pivotal component to today’s world of file-based workflows, so Telestream highly values our Vantage-certified storage providers who address those needs,” said Paul Turner, Vice President of Enterprise Products at Telestream. “We’re pleased that Studio Network Solutions is now providing Vantage-certified solutions to the Media and Entertainment marketplace.”

EVO shared storage systems provide Vantage users with a high-performance, shared, reliable network storage backbone. In an EVO-Telestream workflow, once media is ingested to the server, it becomes instantly accessible to the Vantage transcoding and automation engine, where Vantage can operate complex file workflows on EVO-located media and projects.

Both Studio Network Solutions and Telestream are committed to providing robust yet intuitive tools that streamline professional media workflows. The high-speed performance and high availability of EVO make it a perfect network storage system to accommodate Vantage.
