​Pixit Media Unveils High Performance PixStor

The company is using IBC to debut what it claims are significant new features to its PixStor storage platform including new secure container services aligned to audit-compliant standards and automated deployment to Cloud market-places.

The Secure container services feature unlocks “true” multi-tenancy from a single storage fabric to enable broadcasters, studios and post-production houses to deploy secure data environments, aligned to industry security standards – “without crippling productivity and creativity,” says Pixit Media.

The appliance can expand your workflows into the cloud with fully-automated deployment to cloud marketplaces, enabling hybrid workflows for burst render and cloud-first workflows. PixStor will be available in early September in both Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services.

Using the latest machine learning and AI cloud-based tools to drive media indexing and search capabilities, PixStor users can perform content searches across the entire global namespace.

Visitors to IBC will see PixStor in action across a range of broadcast, post-production and VFX workflows based on recent customer use-cases.

One live demo will connect the company’s booth to its HQ in High Wycombe UK, where a complete production environment has been created featuring technologies, including NetApp E-series storage and Mellanox networking. The team will showcase management of the content lifecycle from ingest via Google Cloud to multi-tenancy secure containers, enhanced search and global collaboration powered by Ngenea, Pixit Media’s data traffic mechanism.

Ben Leaver, Pixit Media’s CEO and co-founder explains, “This latest upgrade to PixStor shows our continued leadership in delivering customer-focused solutions that enable media workflows to thrive – without vendor lock-in or any compromise in performance.”
