St. Louis, MO (October 10, 2006) — Studio Network Solutions (SNS) continues to increase market share by attracting new customers. Among some of the internationally recognized studios that have recently added SNS products to their state-of-the-art facilities for audio/visual recording and editing are Studio at the Palms, Las Vegas, NV and Blackbird Studios, Nashville, TN.
Each of these facilities has installed SNS shared storage systems in order to optimize their creative workflow for sound, recording, editing, mixing, and archiving.
The Palms Casino Resort’s multi-million dollar production studio, Studio at the Palms, installed SNS’ Fibre Channel shared storage system — the A/V SAN PRO — in order to increase efficiency and optimize workflow. Director Zoe Thrall explained, “We are using our A/V SAN PRO as our main audio work drives for our sessions. When a client brings their files in we transfer them to the Fibre Channel drives and continue working, then remove them from the drives for archiving. We also can inter-connect more than one studio if the same client is working in more than one room. When time, money and creativity are on the line you want to work in the most stable and efficient format and with A/V SAN PRO we bought peace-of-mind.”
Blackbird Studios of Nashville, the nationally recognized recording studio that has served as the recording facility for international artists such as Neil Young, Dolly Parton, Smashmouth and many more, deployed both A/V SAN PRO and SNS globalSAN X-4 iSCSI system to solve their storage and workflow needs. Vance Powell, general manager and staff engineer for Blackbird, said, “We use our SNS SANs everyday for centralized storage for the seven studios here at Blackbird. SNS has been here with us since day one and their system has grown with us from a one room semi-private studio to a seven room world-class facility. There’s not been one single incident of data loss or client downtime because of the SAN in four years of operation. That is what I call solid! Period.”
