Bright Technologies Presents New Generation of BrightDrive Media File Servers for Media Industry

Reno, USA — Bright Technologies, Inc., developer of advanced technology for shared media, has answered the industry’s need for economical, compact, eco-friendly media file servers by launching a new generation of BrightDrive servers. Designed and developed to address the rigorous demands of the media and entertainment industry, BrightDrive Procyon and BrightDrive Triton offer a unique set of features and functionalities that dramatically increase productivity and maximize profitability via real-time collaboration between all clients.

The servers will incorporate Bright’s best-of-class software, including the astonishing new patent-pending BrightClip 2.0 advanced recording technology. The latest BrightClip release is faster and smarter than ever. More than just file allocation, it permanently overcomes the industry-wide problem of degradation by eliminating fragmentation, randomization and inter-leaved frames and is still the only solution that works 100% at all times.

BrightDrive Procyon, the next generation of Bright’s G2 Pro, packs a powerful punch from a compact 3U footprint. The high-availability server utilizes integrated connectivity, eliminating the need for extraneous components, to offer an outstanding out-of-the-box experience. Procyon features a groundbreaking hardware platform plus a current and stable software foundation – including support of StorNext 4.2.

The new BrightDrive Triton elevates BrightDrive G2, its predecessor, to a higher level. The new server answers the need for an attractively priced, green solution that only occupies a single rack unit. Triton also supports StorNext 4.2.

In addition to their fresh look, BrightDrive’s Procyon and Triton eco-friendly designs lower cooling requirements and significantly reduce power costs. The servers’ agnostic architecture allow facilities to seamlessly interface with their preferred applications, protocol, resolution, and formats, eliminating the need for investment in new storage. They offer the highest level of operational stability, consistent and predictable performance, and high-speed access for all users at all times. Both BrightDrives are equipped with incomparable GUI’s (graphical user interfaces) for monitoring and administration.

“The most ingenious thing about the BrightDrive Procyon high-availability Media File Server, is that it’s consolidated into a mere three rack units and utilizes integrated connectivity between the components!” exclaimed Roger Beck, Bright’s CTO. “With more uptime, less maintenance effort, and BrightDrive’s internal “Virtual SCSI Device” customers save money on meta-data devices, hardware, and maintenance. Also our new single server, BrightDrive Triton, occupies only 1U which, I’m sure, our customers will love.”

Added Shawn Clark, Bright’s director of sales, “We’re thrilled about the new product releases specifically because our development team designed the BrightDrives to be a lot smaller and greener than their predecessors. This will ensure that our customers’ infrastructure will consume less power and require less cooling. But even more exciting is our ability to offer both new BrightDrives for 20% less!”

BrightDrive Procyon is shipping now, and BrightDrive Triton will be available as of January 1, 2012 directly from Bright Technologies and through Bright’s worldwide network of business partners.

SGO Plans To Adopt Bright Technologies’ BrightClip To Enable Seamless Integration of Post System & Server

Reno, USA: Bright Technologies Inc., developer of advanced technology for shared media, has announced that SGO, provider of high-end solutions for the post-production and broadcast industries, has made an agreement to support the Company’s BrightClip® intelligent data recording technology on Mistika – SGO’s powerful post-production system. The integration enables customers to benefit from Mistika’s sophisticated feature-set combined with BrightDrive’s unique tools and functionalities for a robust post-production workflow.

Implementing BrightClip will enable Mistika to function seamlessly with BrightDrive media file server, the only file server developed specifically for media and entertainment. BrightClip provides superior disk recording and playback of media within the digital post-production environment by overcoming the need for data optimization. As media is moved between the different processes of a post-production workflow, BrightClip employs advanced, highly sophisticated technology to ensure content is organized logically on disks, therefore maximizing performance.

“We are delighted to open new avenues for our customers with support of BrightClip,” noted Miguel Angel Doncel, SGO’s CEO. “The advantages of Mistika, which is the most advanced and powerful DI post-production system presently available, combined with the functionality of BrightDrive will increase stability, productivity and allow faster project turn-around for our customers. The power and intelligence of BrightClip eliminates the need for defragmentation and keeps performance at a peak – a great benefit for our customers.”

Mistika is a flexible, high-end, post-production system capable of SD, HD, 2K, 4K, 5K, and stereoscopic 3D with real-time ARRI, RED Camera and other native data workflows. It seamlessly integrates timeline-based editing, conforming, infinite-layer compositing, color grading and image restoration all in one complete solution, with various toolsets working together in the timeline.

Mistika will work with all three versions of BrightDrive media file server that are all equally powerful but vary in size, modularity, and performance. BrightDrive Astella, the entry-level version, is a convenient and affordable all-in-one box that combines storage, metadata server plus all the benefits and features of BrightDrive. BrightDrive G2 and G2 Pro are high-performance servers that benefit all SAN set configurations as they are fully agnostic regarding storage, applications, and preferred fibre channel fabric.

“We are delighted that SGO will be implementing the BrightClip technology,” said Roger Beck, CTO, Bright Technologies, Inc. “The collaboration of SGO’s Mistika and BrightDrive media file server will furnish a shared media environment that offers creative tools while optimizing organization, performance and real-time speed. BrightClip was designed for environments where multiple processes are common. It eliminates the industry-wide problem of randomization by managing all media files created during the post process.”

SGO will join the growing list of manufacturers in the field supporting BrightClip.
