Facilis HUB Shared Storage systems include support for your Final Cut Pro and Final Cut x workflows by enabling real-time editing directly on the shared storage and eliminating the need for local drives and stand-alone RAID systems.  In addition, our FastTracker Asset Management system allows for Editors and content creators to focus on the creative aspect of the job and not on locating their media files on the server.

Facilis turns Final Cut Pro X into a fully collaborative application through the Facilis Project Manager.  FCPX libraries can now be shared in real time while keeping Events secure from overwrite.  Facilis delivers this feature natively on every Shared File System volume connected through Fibre Channel and Ethernet. No other network system allows for this level of control in a shared storage environment, and these features improve workflow for any multi-user video editing team. See the FCPX project sharing details here!

Square Box Systems has been a partner with Facilis Technology for several years, and hundreds of facilities enjoy the compatibility and integration between Facilis Shared Storage and CatDV products. Now with FastTracker 3.0, any record indexed can be immediately reported to CatDV for analysis and inclusion in catalogs. 

Deploying Asset Management can be a very complex undertaking, so it helps when the shared storage just works out of the box. The less time our customers spend managing the storage system, the more time they can spend customizing their ideal asset management workflow. Read more about CatDV and Facilis here.

Blackmagic Resolve has been a favorite application for Facilis customers, because of the bandwidth-hungry formats that are supported by Resolve in the color correction workflow. Resolve was the first OSX application that Facilis successfully qualified with 4K DPX uncompressed playback, and some high performance workflows in Resolve still cannot be delivered with any shared storage except Facilis. 

With FastTracker, DPX and EXR file sequences are combined into a single record, and proxies in h.264 format can be created. This enables the operator to preview the footage prior to importing. Facilis tests and qualifies the latest version of Resolve with every TerraBlock release, and an online demonstration of this workflow is available. See additional information here.

Telestream is a very popular brand for automated ingest, encoding and distribution systems. In these workflows, shared storage is not only recommended, it's required. Facilis and Telestream have hundreds of cooperative installs, and starting with Facilis version 6.5 and Vantage version 7, there is now full documented qualification of the supported workflows. Telestream systems work with watch folders and open file formats, which is compatible with growing file support in Facilis version 6.5.

Facilis and Telestream have combined to fulfill many advanced workflows in Post Production, Broadcast and Live Event. See some additional information here.

As the basis for Facilis Object Cloud, Xen Data is developed to be integrated with Facilis products. Xen Data has LTO and Cloud Cache workflow software, and Facilis sells and supports both options for our customers. When deploying Xen Data software directly on Facilis servers, our customers avoid the need for a turn-key archive system. Using a native Facilis volume as the cache for LTO and Cloud backup and archive, our customers can enjoy the advanced functionality of Object Storage on the desktop.

Xen Data sells certain software packages exclusively with Facilis, so this combination isn't available anywhere else. This provides a pure differentiating factor when choosing a shared storage partner for your facility. See more details here.

Facilis offers archive and backup solutions that are directly attached to the Facilis Shared Storage server unit. These products include nearline disk arrays and archive LTO devices. When using LTO libraries, Archiware P5 software enables data movement, scheduling, library control and indexing.

Archiware software runs on the Facilis server itself without the need for additional archive workstation. P5 delivers professional archive and backup workflows that are automated and robust, to handle the terabytes of data that comes through a large post facility on a weekly basis. Facilis sells and configures Archiware software with our LTO8 tape-based products - see the full details here!

Newtek Tricaster is an industry-leading, multi-camera production system. Facilis has been qualified for use with Tricaster since 2014, and supports up to 32 tracks of concurrent video ingest on a single Facilis server. Through use of the Facilis Shared File System, traffic is optimized over Ethernet connections to better serve the demanding workflows of live event ingest and playout. Facilis 8 or Facilis HUB 16 is a perfect companion for the Tricaster, with ease of use and simple setup even on location.

With Facilis Web Console, volumes can be pushed to the Tricaster system after the Tricaster software interface launches. This avoids the need to enter admin mode and access the Windows desktop to map network drives. Tricaster is often combined with various other content creation workstations in a modern facility, so Facilis is the one shared storage solution that can support them all with ease.
