Whisper Buys More GB Labs Storage

GB Labs has announced that London-based sport and live events producer Whisper, has expanded its MidiSPACE 3RU storage system with an additional 64TB MidiSPACE 3RU. This brings overall storage capacity to 384TB.

The storage was supplied to Whisper by GB Labs reseller Jigsaw24. Media management services for the new system are provided by The Collectv.

Whisper was established in 2010 by BAFTA-winning producer Sunil Patel, TV broadcaster Jake Humphrey, and former F1 driver and current F1 commentator David Coulthard, and is one of the fastest-growing TV production companies in the UK, with additional offices in Maidenhead and Cardiff.

In recent years, Whisper has won a raft of contracts from sports federations and established broadcasters alike. Its current sport TV portfolio includes Formula 1, the Rugby World Cup, Women’s Six Nations, SailGP, W Series, Women’s Super League, the NFL and the 2020 Tokyo Paralympics.

Whisper Post Production Manager Ed Veglio said, “I have seen GB Labs in other production environments that I have worked in, so when Whisper needed a large storage system that they would also be able to edit from, my previous experience with MidiSPACE 3RU made it an obvious solution. The CORE operating system is cross-platform compatible; the price per TB is good; and the GB Labs SPACE range provides reliable storage for our long-term media.”
