Videopro, one of Australia’s leading audio visual equipment specialists, has installed the first EditShare Ark Disk archiving system at Queensland’s Bond University Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences.
The EditShare Ark Disk will provide a safe and convenient place to backup and archive material from the University’s main EditShare servers.
Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences Technology and TV Studio Manager Daniel Murphy said the Ark Disk was the most efficient workflow option for the University’s archiving and backup needs. “We chose EditShare as it is the only product on the market that meets all our needs,” he said.
“It (EditShare) is the only shared storage solution that allows us the flexibility to work in either Final Cut Pro or Avid collaboratively.
“With the (Ark Disk), the University now has a completely tapeless workflow, from acquisition to storage and archiving.”
Bond University currently uses four EditShare servers with a total of 24 terabytes of storage space – all within its Humanities and Social Sciences faculty. EditShare’s Asia Pacific Business Development Manager Paul Hayes said the new Ark system would provide an extra 16 terabytes of storage, allowing University staff to archive and access content easily and securely.
“The EditShare servers provide the most efficient way for video content to be saved for collaborative editing,” he said. “The EditShare Ark will allow staff to free up space on these servers whilst providing an important service in the safeguarding of old files.”
The Humanities and Social Sciences faculty at Bond University uses Videopro Business Centre as their
preferred supplier and have used their services to outfit all their workflow requirements.
Videopro Business Centre Broadcast and Production Account Manager Wayne Newton has been working with Bond University for the past four years. Wayne said the EditShare Ark system would benefit the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences as they continue to support their high definition productions.
“As the technology continues to develop and evolve, particularly within the film and broadcast industries, the amount of storage space required for content increases,” Wayne said. “This investment in the EditShare Ark system puts the University in a great position to move forward and provide students and staff with the best facilities available.”
Having the central storage solution in addition to other state of the art equipment reinforces the reputation of Bond University as one of the country’s premier film and television educational institutions.
The team at Videopro Business Centre look forward to providing other institutions the same exceptional
services and products. Videopro is one of Australia’s premier retailers of audio visual technology, as well as a multi-award winning solutions provider to the corporate, government, education, hospitality, residential and broadcast and production sectors.
The broadcast and production team also hold a range of industry related training courses throughout the year, along with regular product demonstrations and information nights.
