Testronic Labs Deploys Archion Technologies Network Storage Systems

Testronic Labs, a global provider of quality assurance, compliance, and localization services for the entertainment industries, has deployed EditStor Omni storage systems from Archion Technologies.

The systems are now in use at two of Testronic’s locations in Burbank, California and Warsaw, Poland.

Testronic, with facilities in London, Warsaw, Burbank, and Santiago, was established over 20 years ago and provides quality assurance testing of content across the production chain, from masters to deliverables. It also tests the consumer experience on a range of devices, aiming to optimize the user experience. Testronic currently has a mix of over 20 Macs, PCs, and Linux workstations connected to the EditStor Omni in their Burbank facility, with a similar number of workstations connected to the Omni in their Warsaw location.

“We chose Archion's EditStor Omni for our Burbank and Warsaw locations because speed is such a critical part of our storage need,” said Jason Gish, President of Testronic’s Film and TV Division. “We needed screaming fast storage to play files that contain a lot of data, like UHD/4K, HDR 10, DolbyVision, and Dolby Atmos. The Archions are installed in both our Warsaw and Burbank locations as our main system of file storage and play out. The benefits these solutions offer our clients include high performance playback for high level content. Clean and smooth playback is a necessity for QC.”

EditStor Omni, delivering speeds over 15,000 MB/second, provides production, post-production, creative agencies and other creative facilities with a single media storage system for all their high-performance collaboration needs. It is a 24-drive storage system with single server capacities of up 336TB per chassis, hot pluggable expansion nodes, and total expansion into multiple Petabytes.

The EditStor Omni was recommended to Testronic by the consultancy firm File Based Workflows, while media systems integrator Cutting Edge oversaw deployment.
