Proven Performance

When it comes to 4K workflows, no storage provider knows as much about high-resolution video performance requirements and the application ecosystem as Quantum. Unlike generic or IT-centric storage providers, Quantum extensively tests every level of the media production workflow—from disks, to arrays, to networks, to client operating systems, to applications. We understand the impact of these choices, and we have the largest network of ecosystem partners, so we know the entire workflow.

4K Testing Methodologies and Results

The term “4K” is used to cover a wide variety of resolutions, frame rates, compression schemes, bit depths and color characteristics. Understanding these differences and how they affect your storage infrastructure is crucial to deploying a system that will service your needs now and into the future. We can guide you to exactly the right configuration regardless of your requirements.
