Tech Breakfast - "Pixit Media PixStor & FlavourSys Strawberry"

8:30 for 9am, Wed 26th Nov, Soho Screening Rooms

Tomorrow - Still a few places left!

This month's breakfast meeting for broadcast/post engineers takes a look two of the hottest products of the moment, Pixmedia's Strawberry. PixStor is a unified SAN and NAS solution that can guarantee performance to any number of file-sharing or streaming clients from within a single storage namespace, and does so without the use of expensive proprietary hardware, whilst Strawberry manages user and team access to projects, helps editors and producers to find their assets, and reduces duplication on the storage. All of this across any creative application, from Media Composer, to Premiere and FCP, to Davinci, ProTools, Smoke, and more.

Breakfast will be served from 8:30am for a 9am start - REGISTER HERE
