Archion Announces Significant Collaboration with NewTek To Establish EditStor as First Network Storage System To Adopt NDI For IP Production Workflow


Archion Technologies one of the newest members of NewTek‘s Developer Network, has embraced NewTek’s open Network Device Interface (NDI) standard for IP-based production workflows. The announcement was made by Reuben Lima, CEO/founder, Archion.

The company’s EditStor Velo (with NDI enabled) is the first network storage system recognizable as a source by NDI-enabled devices, as well as other systems connected to a standard Ethernet local area network. This exponentially increases the number of video sources available for live production.

Archion’s EditStor system with NDI combines the simplicity, interoperability and cost effectiveness of network attached storage (NAS) with the intelligence and efficiency of IP-based broadcasting. With this development, broadcasters can now easily connect up their TriCaster with industry leading storage, with the added benefit of easing share of video and audio on an IP based network.  All NDI devices now are able to discover and mountEditStor volumes automatically, with unprecedented access to file based video and audio on an IP based switching system.

“Archion has always led the industry with intelligent shared media storage solutions, and we are proud to be the first storage manufacturer to adopt NDI in collaboration with the NewTek team,” said James Tucci, Archion’s CTO. “By becoming a member of the NewTek Developer Network and completing NDI integration, broadcast professionals using NewTek TriCaster can now seamlessly deploy EditStor Velo, and enjoy how quickly the storage will be discovered and ready for use.”

Adds Michael Kornet, executive vice president of business development for NewTek, “We are confident that IP workflows will revolutionize video production – and reliable shared storage is a critical component. Known for their high performance and simple to use storage, Archion’s 18 years of experience are highly valued both at NewTek and within the industry. By Archion enthusiastically embracing NDI, best-of-breed products like EditStor Velo will help make NDI the most widely adopted IP standard on the market, and one that’s available for a variety of customers today.”

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
