Built for Live Production

EVS Live Content solutions are built to exceed your needs of Live production, and XStore is a key component of our solution.  As a cornerstone beneath the editorial tools that your staff will use to produce more and faster stories.  EVS tests and ensures that our products tightly interoperate with the shared storage to let you focus back on the workflows and productions themselves.

High Scalability

XStore is based on a fully distributed scale-out architecture, resulting in increased performance as additional storage nodes are added. As the system is expanded, bandwidth and capacity increase linearly, improving access speed to content already existing on the system.

Optimized for Media Workflow

Your editors need access to content, and your workflows cannot be impaired by having multiple silos of content storage.  XStore enables live ingest of content and user access for collaborative editing for Live production.  Put your content into the hands editors with the tools to expose the content in a shared environment. With operations that enable EVS editing tools like CleanEdit, or 3rd party like Adobe, Avid and Apple editors.

Based on standard hardware components and cost-effective Ethernet technology, XStore is economical to purchase and maintain. There’s no need for file system reconfiguration as you scale, or for file system defragmentation as the file system ages.

Reliability and Availability

XStore systems have no single point of failure, and leverage features such as dual active-active controllers with transparent failover, redundant data paths to protect against storage node failures, and transparent client failover to protect against controller failures. No down time is required even for activities such as software and firmware upgrades or adding storage nodes.
