Thinklogical presents a high performance private cloud solution for VFX & post, along with several other KVM extension and switching innovations.
The new Private Cloud Solution from Thinklogical helps to make cloud-centric editing a reality for creative professionals in the Media & Entertainment industry.
Users can move their computers and media servers to a secure, managed colocation facility up to 50 miles away, reducing IT rack space and technical support requirements in their building — minimising heat, noise, cabling and other IT infrastructure expenses without compromising access performance.
Thinklogical's unique 100% uncompressed signal extension and switching technology delivers pixel-for-pixel video quality and smooth, accurate computer I/O, including peripheral device performance, even working with full resolution 4K DCI video. Users can quickly and easily choose between multiple computers, video sources and different destinations for true “any-to-any” switching, enabling new and more efficient ways for creative professionals to work and collaborate.
The solution's protocol-agnostic architecture supports all common signal types and interface formats, and works seamlessly with all major VFX and Media & Entertainment applications.
