Red Bee Media Selects Pixit Media

Red Bee has deployed Pixit Media’s PixStor as the central storage platform that underpins its playout infrastructure.

Ethernet-based and API-driven, PixStor provides a single data environment that brings together all commodity hardware, applications and systems in the workflow.

PixStor has been deployed at Red Bee Media playout centres in Sweden and UK, including its London-based Red Lab R&D facility, with other sites to follow.

Pixit Media said it enhanced the PixStor platform to deliver secure multi-tenancy capabilities within a single storage namespace. As a result, the costly management and complexity of separate infrastructure stacks to separate and protect client data can be avoided.

“Using PixStor, Red Bee can now rapidly deploy logical data separation and isolation, scale services up or down, all within its unified PixStor environment - with no performance overhead or compromise to clients,” comments Ben Leaver, CEO Pixit Media.

“With PixStor, we have a proven highly resilient storage architecture upon which we can rely,” says Dave Travis, Chief Product & Technology Officer, Red Bee Media. “Combine this with Pixit Media’s consultative approach, access to their workflow experts and 24/7 support services, we also have a responsive technology partner to help us reap the benefits and future possibilities of a software-defined environment. They’re a great team to work with.”
