Globalstor continues to be ASSIMILATE’s primary hardware partner for 64-bit Win7 and will be on hand for the European launch of ASSIMILATES’s SCRATCH® Six and SCRATCH Lab™. For the SCRATCH Six demo, the company will utilize a 10-bay Globalstor ExtremeStor-DI system to showcase the new interactive DI grading, compositing and finishing suite.

“Globalstor systems are powerful, robust and reliable and the company’s commitment to customer service and support make them an ideal hardware partner,? says Miguel Ferros, director of product management, ASSIMILATE. “One of the key benefits of SCRATCH Lab and SCRATCH Six is the sheer performance of each system. These, combined with Globalstor’s ExtremeStor-DI, enable us to provide an extremely interactive, intuitive and collaborative experience to our artists with the most comprehensive solutions and the best price/performance in the industry.?

Globalstor’s ExtremeStor-DI system is a comprehensive end-to-end digital solution for the review, versioning, color correction, conform and deliverables in on-location and VFX dailies ecosystems. Hundreds of feature films and commercials, such as Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, have already utilized the functionality of SCRATCH Lab on Globalstor servers in their VFX dailies pipelines. The ExtremeStor-DI is a well-equipped solution guaranteed to safeguard against downtime and critical data loss, which is essential for producing high-value shoots.

“We’re thrilled that ASSIMILATE has continued a long tradition of utilizing ExtremeStor-DI servers as the hardware backbone for its demonstrations at IBC 2011,? says Scott Leif, president of Globalstor Data Corporation. “The addition of SCRATCH Six to ASSIMILATE’s line of products helps to further emphasize all the great uses of a Globalstor system for complete end-to-end DI and stereoscopic workflows. The full SCRATCH Lab and SCRATCH Six, coupled with ExtremeStor-DI, set a new standard in performance and scalability, at a price point that meets the needs of even the most budget-minded studios and filmmakers.?
