Quantum Products At CABSAT

t CABSAT 2018, Quantum will
present its latest innovations
for demanding storage workflows,
including major enhancements for its
Xcellis workflow storage family and the
StorNext shared file system and data
management platform.
"We've enhanced our Xcellis
workflow storage and StorNext 6
platform with game-changing options
and capabilities that we'll feature at
CABSAT 2018," said Gabriel Chaher,
Development at Quantum.
"With Xcellis products, we're
bringing enterprise-class storage to
a broader range of creative facilities,
empowering users to leverage AI to
better understand and monetise their
content, enabling greater efficiency in
handling content across the storage
environment, and offering NAS storage
performance that's three times that of
the nearest competitor.
Valuable new options within
StorNext 6 deliver vital capabilities
for content synchronisation, sharing
across multiple sites and fine-grained
optimisation of performance across

facility workstations."
Quantum will showcase its new
Xcellis Scale-out NAS platform, which
delivers the highest levels of storage
performance and scalability in a costeffective Ethernet-based appliance.
Powered by Quantum's StorNext
shared storage and data management
solution, the multiprotocol, multiclient
Xcellis Scale-out NAS appliance
unites robust media and
metadata management with
industry-leading scalability and
unmatched performance to
support content creators' most
demanding collaborative workflows
and ease their transition to IP-based
A single Xcellis Scale-out NAS
platform performs at least three times
better than that of the market's next
best NAS offering. An Xcellis NAS
cluster can scale performance and
capacity together or independently
to reach hundreds of petabytes in
capacity and more than a terabyte per
second in performance.
StorNext 6 software demonstrates
Quantum's ongoing leadership in

workflow storage - with a particular
focus on extending collaboration
globally and providing new data
management options.
Quantum will also feature Xcellis
Foundation, a new highperformance,
entrylevel workflow storage
designed to address the
technical and budgetary

requirements of small- to mediumsized postproduction facilities and
corporate video departments.
aiWARE for Xcellis is a new hybrid
on-premises and cloud version of the
best-in-class artificial intelligence (AI)
platform from Veritone. This solution
allows users to leverage the power
of Veritone's best-of-breed cognitive
analytics to extract hidden value
from their on-premises video and
audio content.
During CABSAT 2018, Quantum
will feature the integration of
Data Frameworks' ClarityNow
with Xcellis workflow storage.
Together these technologies allow
users not only to look at the physical
nature of the storage environment
to see where files are kept, but also
to establish policies so that files are
moved in a way that yields the most

Worldwide Smallest DSP-Based
Ensemble Multiplexer

VT is presenting the new MAGIC
DABMUX Go Multiplexer, a
particularly cost-effective solution
for smaller radio stations at CABSAT.
In combination with the high-quality
MAGIC AE1 DAB+ Go audio encoders
AVT offers a complete small-scale DAB
Special value was set on the easy
configuration of the Ensemble
Multiplexer via Web browser, so
that even users without DAB expert
knowledge are able to set up the
Besides, AVT also presents their
telephone hybrids with 1, 2, 6 and 8 or
16 caller lines. A special highlight is the
interworking between MAGIC THipPro

and e.g. LAWO or DHD mixing
consoles via Ember+ and
DHD SetLogic commands.
With the IP Audio Codec
MAGIC ACip3 and the
MAGIC THipPro Telephone
Hybrid System AVT provides
an integrated all-in-one
solution - only one
management software is
required to control both
Telephone Hybrid System

The Audio Codec is displayed as an
additional caller line in the MAGIC
THipPro LAN or Screener Software.
Incoming calls to the MAGIC ACip3
can be accepted as well as outgoing


Mono or Stereo connections can be
established via the hybrid's control
software. With the Dual Codec
Upgrade, two Stereo signals can be
transmitted with one MAGIC ACip3

system. In this case, two additional
caller lines would be available
in the Telephone Hybrid's
control software.

in N├╝rnberg, Germany and
develops IP, ISDN and
POTS Telephone Hybrids/
Audio Codecs and DAB
