Highlight Description:

Massachusetts-based Facilis Technology launched in 2003 with a vision to bring affordable, advanced network shared storage to post production and content creation professionals working in media and entertainment. Over the past 15 years, the company has evolved into an industry-leading provider of cost-effective, high performance video shared storage systems and dynamic workflow solutions for the film, broadcast and AV markets. Facilis means simple, and their approach to video project sharing is different. Instead of focusing on expensive and complex hardware to get around the inefficiencies of common network file systems, they change the network itself. Facilis systems are not NAS, although they have the simplicity of connection common to network storage. The Facilis shared file system is unique in the market, delivering video and audio data over Fibre Channel and Ethernet connections, through a custom protocol that avoids the overhead and latencies of network storage systems. Developed in 2009, the Shared File System is compatible with all major operating systems at the same time, on the same volume and with the same permissions structure. When avoiding the complexities of OS-based network file systems, our method of data sharing is simple, and interoperable with more applications than any NAS-based system. It's in use at thousands of facilities worldwide, and helping to produce some of the most compelling content in the business. Facilis Technology develops video shared storage networks for many markets including traditional Post Production, Advertising, Education, Sports, Houses of Worship, Digital Intermediate/Film, Government, Corporate, Studios and Video Surveillance. Facilis provides a cost effective, high performance shared network storage backbone with integrated Asset Tracking and Archive/Backup tools. In addition, Facilis continually qualifies compatibility with best-of-breed technology from industry-leading partners in Media Asset Management, Archive, Ingest, Editorial/Graphics, Ingest/Playback and Broadcast Automation.

The Facilis Shared File System is included with every TerraBlock and easily accommodates the most complex multi-platform network environments and enables collaboration among diverse image formats and application including Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro/Creative Cloud, FCP/FCPX, DaVinci Resolve and others. From 4K film color grading to HD craft editorial, TerraBlock Network shared storage provides the performance and collaboration tools to get the job done. Supported by a strong internal team comprising industry veterans with extensive backgrounds in product development, broadcast facility engineering and creative video editing, Facilis continually innovates its solutions to enable superior integration with the latest creative applications and technology, as well as support for cutting-edge connectivity methods. The company’s world-class technical support and meticulous in-house integration of each turnkey solution have earned Facilis a loyal customer base and esteemed reputation in the industry. Its consultative selling process ensures that all Facilis solutions will fit seamlessly into facility environments of all shapes and sizes and provide unmatched stability for years of uninterrupted production.
