Panasas ActiveStor VR Workflow Solution Wins a Post Pick Award For ‘Standout New Product’ at 2018 NAB Show

Post magazine award recognizes the most innovative new products and technologies at NAB

SUNNYVALE, CA – April 23, 2018 Panasas®, the leader in performance scale-out network-attached storage (NAS), today announced it received a Post Pick Award from Post magazine in the ‘Standout New Product’ category for its ActiveStor® VR workflow demo at the 2018 National Association of Broadcasters Show (NAB) in Las Vegas (April 7-12, 2018). The award recognizes the most innovative new products and technologies at NAB, the world’s largest convention dedicated to the convergence of media, entertainment and technology.

“Each year, our team of writers, contributors and working professionals in the post industry walk the trade show floor, searching for the most innovative and coolest new products, solutions and technologies to share with our readers. That’s why these awards are so prestigious — because they are voted on by actual post professionals who intend to use this gear in their day-to-day work. There is no greater endorsement than from the professionals themselves,” said Linda Romanello, editor-in-chief of Post magazine.

“We are thrilled to receive a Post Pick Award for our work in supporting VR content creation and thank the Post magazine team and industry pros for selecting us,” said David Sallak, chief technology officer for media & entertainment at Panasas. “At this year’s NAB we showed how regular everyday production tools like Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC and Adobe After Effects® CC (both part of the Adobe Creative Cloud) and Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve Studio work together collaboratively to create VR content in an environment supported by Panasas ActiveStor scale-out NAS. In addition to the demo, we also showed an immersive video dome VR experience featuring content produced on those tools and sourced from Panasas ActiveStor storage.”
