For more demanding workflows, like 16-bit 4K DPX/EXR, EVO is available in all-SSD configurations with up to 50 Gigabit Ethernet.

These stream counts were conducted using an EVO 16 Bay model with 16 x 12TB HDD disks and EVO OS v.6.1 on macOS and Windows workstations connected over Gigabit and 10Gb Ethernet using AFP and SMB protocols.

Tests use many simultaneous unique clips (independent files) of various sizes, with Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, and other professional video editing software.

What people are saying

We grew the number of episodes during production and the staff kept growing. We had a show runner, nine producers, two executive producers, seven editors and four assistant editorsaround 20 users reviewing and editing footage on EVO at any given time.

Jose Berrios
Post Supervisor, Park Slope Productions

All of our raw footage, projects, graphics, and finished shows are safe and available from any machine. We’re sometimes delivering over 100 videos a week, so having EVO has been absolutely essential to our workflow.

Golnaz Alibeigi
Channel 9 Studio Manager, Microsoft

We were using a 64TB direct-attached RAID, and it got to a point where we knew we just couldn’t get anything done without a centralized server that we could rely on to handle our workflow without hiccups.

Gevorg Karensky
Founder, Bipolar Studio

We have better processes in place because of EVO. It’s allowed us to sleep… without it, it would always be crunch time.
