Booth SL 9724 ActiveStor with DirectFlow for Mac is a high-performance combination of scale-out NAS with a parallel data protocol for the Apple Mac platform. It offers several advantages over traditional post-production storage solutions.

The technology eliminates the offline process by supporting faster media ingest, process and delivery at HD and 4K UHD resolutions. The solution’s ability to scale bandwidth and capacity for larger high dynamic range and virtual reality projects helps future-proof the system as new media formats and more complex workloads are introduced.

And the ability to unify all Macs on simple, high-speed Ethernet under a single global namespace simplifies system management, reduces TCO and helps drive productivity, the company says.

Panasas is also demonstrating a performance workflow that illustrates how ActiveStor interfaces with Axle ingest and Adobe and Avid edit clients via DirectFlow for Mac, and Elemental Streaming via DirectFlow for Linux.
