NewTek TriCaster Now Qualified for Live Production with ISIS | 5500 Collaborative Storage

By in Topics

I’m excited to tell you about recent testing of live production workflows with Avid ISIS | 5500 shared storage solution and NewTek TriCaster.

ISIS | 5500 is the leading collaborative storage for a wide range of post-production and broadcast workflows and is now qualified for live production with TriCaster and 3Play 4800. Using ISIS | 5500 as the recording drive for live sessions enables media to be immediately available to a variety of devices simultaneously including editors, transcoders and playout. 3Play 4800 is NewTek’s sports production solution, adding ISIS collaborative storage enables more creative workflows and deliversa compelling experience for broadcasters, pro leagues, and venues.

5500 was tested with single and mirrored TriCaster 8000s. The mirrored configuration opens up a number of new workflows providing higher scale and redundancy for multi-screen productions. ISIS | 5500 enables the mirrored TriCasters to playback the same streams simultaneously.

Simply install the ISIS client on NewTek TriCaster or 3Play and configure it to login and mount the required ISIS workspaces.

The combination of ISIS | 5500 and the NewTek portfolio allow up to 8 streams to be recorded and simultaneously play 2 streams and received 2 channels of graphics simultaneously, with the added benefit of being able to instantaneously share and monetize your content. Gigabit Ethernet provides high speed, reliable connectivity between NewTek and ISIS. Simply install the ISIS client on NewTek TriCaster or 3Play and configure it to login and mount the required ISIS workspaces.

ISIS | 5500 scales in increments of 16, 32 or 64 Terra Bytes of capacity and delivers multiple Giga-Bytes per second of throughput. The ISIS File System includes a number of patented mechanisms to provide predictable, reliable performance to multiple simultaneous connections. Predictable multi-stream performance as delivered by ISIS | 5500 is especially important in these live to air and fast turnaround workflows.

With this announcement, we are now qualified through the NewTek Developer Network. NewTek TriCaster, NewTek 3Play, and Avid ISIS | 5500 are all currently available.
