Using NewTek Remote Storage, Powered by SNS
December 12, 2018 by Chuck Baker
Key to production in pretty much any size studio these days is making all existing assets digital, and available to all projects all the time. Another major boost to productivity is the ability to ingest all new footage to digital files in a shared location with instant availability for post production. With digital assets, IP transport only makes sense. Both of the aforementioned goals are addressed with special attention to integrating IP workflow with shared storage, with NewTek Remote Storage (NRS) powered by Studio Network Solutions (SNS).
NewTek video content producer Richard Evans and SNS sales manager Steve McKenna show how to use many of the key capabilities of the NRS, which leverages NewTek’s NDI® technology for bi-directional transport of video, audio and data over standard networks at very low latency and very high quality. NRS is not merely storage but a key production component that includes powerful Media Asset Management (MAM), and which an operator at the system or on a networked computer or device can use to capture live NDI streams, or to play NDI streams to production systems including Adobe® Creative Cloud® applications. A wide variety of other MAM capabilities are also present, and all can be used from a browser window on any system or device on the same local network.
NDI is by far the most adopted standard for IP video production, now in hundreds of products in the hands of millions of users, all of which are now grist for the mill for NRS as sources or as destinations. NDI also provides for powerful integration of NRS with NewTek’s new IP-based production systems, 3Play® 3P1 4 in /2 out HD Sports production system and video server with instant replay and slow motion, as well as the 4K 60p TriCaster® TC1 16-input and NewTek VMC1 44-input multi-camera integrated production systems with motion graphics, M/Es, dual streaming, dual Skype calling channels, built-in media players, and more.
So: enjoy this look at many of the things you can do and how you do them, with NewTek Remote Storage.
