IBC 2014: Facilis Delivers TerraBlock Integration for NewTek Multi-Camera Live Video Production Tools

Joins NewTek Developer Network to Bring Advanced Shared Storage Capabilities to TriCaster and 3Play Customers

Amsterdam, Netherlands, IBC Conference Stand 7.E08 (September 12, 2014)  At the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) 2014 in Amsterdam,  Facilis Technologyannounced that it has aligned with  NewTek to provide  TerraBlock shared storagesupport for NewTek's TriCaster multi-camera live video production systems, as well as its 3Play integrated sports solutions. As a result of the collaboration, Facilis is now part of the expanding  NewTek Developer Network, affording NewTek customers the flexibility to record and play out multiple live-streams simultaneously, using an industry-leading multi-platform, high-capacity shared storage server that supports both 8/16Gbps Fibre Channel and 1/10Gbps Ethernet. 

TerraBlock 6.0 has been tested on the TriCaster 860 model, and the full complement of eight capture streams of HD 4:2:2 video can be accommodated on a TerraBlock 24EX/16 or 24D system over the standard 1Gb connection. When using a 24D system, a total of 32 streams of 4:2:2 capture can be achieved with concurrent playout streams. 

“TerraBlock is an affordable, complementary shared storage solution for TriCaster and 3Play, delivering tremendous performance, and ease of use,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president of Business Development for NewTek. “Together our products offer a well-rounded solution for managing the most complex live production and post workflows.”

“NewTek offers very compelling multi-camera production solutions for international broadcasters. With TerraBlock gaining momentum worldwide, there’s never been a better time for us to come together to bring our customers this functionality,” shared James McKenna, VP Marketing, Facilis Technology. “This integration offers a perfect solution for quickly ingesting and streaming high-res footage in multi-camera live production environments, all in real-time directly from TerraBlock shared storage.”
