Tyrell CCT have also recently provided Dublin facility Piranha Bar with a new storage infrastructure consisting of Object Matrix’s secure Matrix Store and Avid’s leading shared storage solution, ISIS 5000. Piranha Bar can now manage the increasing volume of tapeless media and ensure fast access to data and facilitate collaboration throughout the facility.
Object Matrix’s storage solution acts as a repository for a multitude of media assets and stores all files including Quicktimes, Avid project overruns, RED raw files and digital archive for clients. This node based clustered storage array will initially provide Piranha Bar with 36 TB of nearline storage and combined with the unique object-based architecture of Matrix Store, it provides an incredibly secure environment to build Piranha Bar’s digital archive. Piranha Bar also upgraded their existing Avid Unity system to Avid’s Ethernet based ISIS 5000.
Executive Producer at Piranha Bar, Dave Burke commented “We needed a secure, scalable and self-managing solution that could handle large volumes of client media, and allow simple and immediate retrieval from any location in the facility. Tyrell CCT introduced us to The Matrix Store and amazingly it ticked all of the boxes while remaining the most cost-effective solution that is out there. We now have more streamlined processes, reduced overheads and our team are able to fully focus on their creative endeavours.”
Piranha Bar is one of Ireland’s leading post production facilities and have completed work on projects including Irish ‘Masterchef’, ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘The Genealogy Roadshow’.
