​Ross Unveils EVO Storage Solutions

The new line of high-performance storage has been designed and produced by Studio Network Solutions, exclusively for Ross Video.

The EVO Signature Series will be integrated into Ross news, live event, playout, and asset management solutions to provide better integration with editing platforms, as well as improving archival workflows.

The storage offers multiple form factors, capacities and I/O options from a simple desktop solution all the way up to large 16-bay storage units peered together to a maximum capacity of 960 TB in a single node.

The Series includes options supporting huge numbers of direct connect 1 GbE ports to multiple 10 Gb copper and fiber options, and even 25 Gb and 50 Gb solutions for more demanding playout requirements. There are direct connect options for playout and streaming of video from the storage through both XPression graphics and Abekas server playout solutions. The EVO Signature Series also includes the option for more cost-effective nearline storage, “which is a great fit for media asset management solutions such as Ross Streamline,” notes Jeff Moore, Executive Vice President and CMO at Ross.

The units are designed and built by SNS exclusively for Ross Video.

“SNS is a leader in cost-effective storage solutions for the media and entertainment space, and we are delighted to be working so closely with them in designing this solution for the Ross ecosystem”, said Moore. “The EVO Signature Series is a perfect addition to our News and Live Event solutions and integrates with our XPression graphics, Abekas servers/replay and Streamline asset management product suites to provide high-performance, cost-effective solutions for our customers.”
