Archion Technologies, based in Los Angeles, CA, is a leading provider of intelligent networked storage solutions specifically designed for post production and graphic professionals. Founded in 1999 by a team of post production, storage technology and entertainment industry professionals, Archion set out to create a new standard of data protection and performance for those creating video, audio and graphical content. Since then, Archion’s high-performance storage technology has been critical to the success of hundreds of television and feature film projects.
With a dynamic focus on high throughput workflows, such as video/audio editing and digital intermediary, Archion is prominently used in Avid, Apple, Adobe, Autodesk and Pro Tools environments. Today, the high reliability, performance and protection of Archion’s technology is utilized around the world by broadcasters, TV networks, post facilities, studios, equipment rental facilities, corporations, universities, sports facilities, and governments.
Over the past decade, the most significant accomplishment has been the development of Archion’s award-winning patented Vdisk™ technology, a “compatibility engine” that establishes a high level of flexibility, productivity and compatibility among content creation professionals in a shared environment. This is the very technology that enabled Archion to deliver the popular Synergy family of RAID storage systems for the Avid Unity™ platform without changing this popular workflow.
Archion is continuously recognized for our superior industry knowledge and our outstanding dedication to customer support (24 hours a day, 7 days a week). It’s our ability and commitment to help our customers achieve their media storage-related goals that allows Archion to stand out from the competition.
Archion continues to develop premier shared storage solutions that are easily scalable, cost effective, cross platform, and simplified for the end user. While our success is determined by meeting the needs of our customers, there is a great deal of pride in the recognition that Archion has received over the years.
Engineered to be the single centralized storage system for creative facilities, Omni Flash delivers ultra fast video streaming and extreme render and CGI performance. In one uniquely designed and intelligent NAS system, Archion delivers the bandwidth and IOPS for the most demanding media workflows. Omni Flash will handle 4K, 6K and even 8K media while also catering to your graphical and visual effects demands. EditStor Omni Flash has set a new standard for the media production industry.
Media facilities with large video and graphical departments have always had to purchase two or maybe three storage systems for storing, editing, ingesting their content. To meet the more demanding media workflows, these facilities would have to deploy complicated and expensive SAN technology which required multiple servers to support metadata, SAN software and more. And yet the functionality for content creation was still limited and they there were not designed to support the heavy demands of graphical applications.
EditStor Omni Flash provides tremendous capabilities all in a simple, affordable, high density networked storage server. Engineered to support facilities with both high video streaming and graphic rendering demands, Omni Flash delivers full line level throughput and extraordinary IOPS. Editor, Compositor and Graphic professionals can now seamlessly work on the same network share. There is no longer a need to move or copy rendered media so that editors work. The media is available as soon as the renders finish with EditStor Omni Flash.
To achieve the very high level of IOPs, which lowers latency, Archion uses dedicated high speed SSDs. Powered by our patented optimizing intelligence, Omni Flash detects the difference between a high throughput stream and a small IOPS request and adjusts on the fly for maximum performance for each workflow.
EditStor Omni Flash is your ultimate compatibility and collaborate engine with interoperability for all the favorite production tools including 4K cameras from AJA®, ARRI®, Blackmagic, RED, Sony and more; editorial and finishing applications such as Adobe Premiere® , Avid Media Composer® and ProTools®, Apple Final Cut Studio®, Autodesk Smoke® and Flame, and Blackmagic Resolve; and animation/visual effects tools like Adobe® After Affects®, Autodesk® Maya, Foundry Nuke and more.
The flexibility of EditStor Omni Flash is truly unmatched for media workflows. With a comprehensive, yet easy to use GUI, connecting up an unlimited number Windows, Macintosh and Linux clients is simple; there are no drivers, installers or client licenses required. Adding to this is a broad spectrum of media management features. This begins with ability to create shared volumes of any size while also having the convenience of being able to expand those volumes on the fly without downtime and performance degradation. EditStor Omni expansion chassis’s can be added to expand the storage with a Omni with HDD’s or SSD’s expanding the capacity to the same volume group or separate without shutting down or stopping work. Included with all Omni is the Archion’s APS+ for easy storage mananagemt and the PICS media management system for searching and playback of media.
