SIGGRAPH: Globalstor powers PNY's DI demo

VANCOUVER — Globalstor Data Corporation’s ( ExtremeStor-DI video storage and playback system is powering two PNY ( demonstrations at this year’s SIGGRAPH show. Globalstor is an OEM integrator of high-performance RAID, SAN and storage/video servers. The PNY demonstration features content generated by Assimilate’s Scratch DI system along with Nvidia Quadro 6000 SDI by PNY professional graphics boards for both Red 4K and stereo playback systems. 

Globalstor’s 10-drive ExtremeStor-DI tower is being used for data capture, processing and realtime playback of high-resolution video. The ExtremeStor-DI video storage and playback workstation offers native, uncompressed 4K DPX, stereoscopic 2K DPX and R3D resolution playback in a single solution, either in a rack-mount or tower configuration, along with 10 PCI Express (PCI-E) card slots. 

“Through these demonstrations, we’re able to show SIGGRAPH visitors complete uncompressed 4K DPX and Red workflows,” explains Globalstor president Scott Leif. “Our latest generation of tower-based platforms sets a new standard in performance and scalability while doing it at a price point that meets the needs of even the most budget-minded studios and filmmakers.”

ExtremeStor-DI’s base model features just under 2.5TBs and is scalable to up to 108TBs in a single 6U rack-mount configuration.
