​Elements Debuts Bolt High-Performance Storage

The new appliance which is available to order from April, provides double the throughput from a compact 2U chassis, even when working in resolutions of 8K+, the vendor says.

Using Peripheral Component Interconnect Express (PCIe) high-bandwidth bus technology “and without the limitations of standard SAS/SATA bus” Bolt provides up to 25GB/s read performance and delivers high-levels of Input/Output Operations per Second (IOPS) rates with almost zero latencies, Elements says.

Bolt supports up to 32Gb Fibre Channel and 100Gb Ethernet with RDMA.

“As a highly scalable system, Bolt can easily provide Petabytes of usable capacity at more than 100GB/s when set-up as a cluster,” said the vendor.

Also at NAB: Elements’ MAM tool ‘Media Library’ will be demonstrated with several new features including the ability to send automatic project updates and notifications to authorized Slack users via a newly implemented Slack interface. A new “smart recycle bin” will also be shown for the first time.

In addition, workflow automation within all its appliances has been “dramatically” improved. The overhauled edition Task Manager sports a new design with enhanced security features and even more flexible template options, including “automated sub steps,” for more precision and accuracy of workflow automation processes.

Elements Media Library incorporates a media player that can playback up to four videos - selectively synchronous and asynchronous, allowing comparison of four editing versions concurrently. The Media Library also contains a Rough-Cut Editor “comparable to other professional editing tools” that cover a spectrum of editing rough-cut functionalities. In addition, the Media Library editor “enhances and simplifies” approval and communication processes during projects by allowing for frame-accurate comments and even drawings on the source material to indicate areas of interest.
