Storage Devices and Storage Networks
Broadcasters must increasingly rely on advanced storage technologies to meet the rising requirements and needs due to the large amounts of data which require processing. A key aspect of enhancing performance and optimising workflows is to connect digital storage devices not only to each other (NAS/SAN structures), but also to existing and future network structures (e.g. via Fibre Channel, Gigabit Ethernet, and ATM).
Observing and analysing this sector of the global market – especially in regard to broadcasting – is one of IRT’s principal missions. Moreover, our institute set up an in-house, pilot storage network to test current systems, study various workflows, and determine performance limits. Thanks to flexible scalability and specialised measurement methods, our experts can realise a variety of scenarios and test a vast array of products.
