​ATTO Technology Addresses 4K/8K Content

Storage vendor ATTO says 60 fellow manufacturers have partnered with it, and many are including live demos at IBC featuring ATTO tech’s performance.

Indeed, ATTO claims to be the only company who can meet the demanding needs of 4K and 8K video content creation across all connectivity types including storage area networks (SAN), network attached storage (NAS) and direct-attached storage (DAS), for mobile workstations, desktop workstations and servers.

"IBC is the ideal venue for ATTO to illustrate why we are the foremost provider of workflow solutions utilized by the leading media and entertainment companies," says ATTO President Tim Klein, "It's these types of partnerships that continue to establish ATTO as the go-to solution provider for storage and network connectivity."

Among the demonstrations is Thunderbolt 3 connectivity for Avid NEXIS. This will demonstrate a low-cost and highly flexible shared storage solution for mobile workstations, all-in-ones and Macs running Avid Media Composer or Pro Tools. ThunderLink acts as an external Thunderbolt to Fibre Channel, SAS or Ethernet adapter, connecting all-in-one systems and mobile computing platforms to Fibre Channel SANs, storage devices and Ethernet networks. An ideal solution for users looking to achieve the highest I/O and data throughput for advanced video and access to IT applications.

Another demo is of a Fibre Channel SAN using Gen 6 Celerity and Thunderbolt 3 to 32Gb Fibre Channel to achieve throughput rates fast enough for editing 8K files. Shared workflow using multiple desktop and mobile workstations are shown streaming and editing Adobe Premier Pro video footage stored on Facilis storage.
