Scale Logic, Inc., In Partnership with FlavourSys, Deploys Workflow Migration & Integrated Project Management to Optimize Turner Studios’ Adobe Premiere Pro CC Workflow

Editors Facility-wide Now Enjoy Efficient, Streamlined, Collaborative Editing with FlavourSys’ Strawberry

April 13, 2015, Bloomington, MN – Upon the installation and integration of FlavourSys’ Strawberry Production Asset Management at Turner Studios, Scale Logic, Inc. a global provider of media-centric data storage solutions and related workflow applications has delivered two separate but related workflow benefits for their post production operations. Firstly, Strawberry enables a phased-in, managed migration platform for Turner Studios, supporting management’s goal to transition their post production editing workflow to Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC. Secondly, Strawberry provides additional workflow project management benefits and collaboration tools that in aggregate, equate to a highly optimized and cost-effective Adobe Premiere Pro-based workflow that can be scaled-out on a facility-wide basis.

"The solution developed and implemented by Scale Logic, FlavourSys, and an Atlanta-based System Integration partner was a team effort," said Jason Moss, Director, Turner Studios Editorial."We now have a fully integrated, dual-purpose application platform that supports both our transition to Adobe Premiere Pro CC, as well as providing an enhanced and fully collaborative editorial workflow.”

"Originally, Turner Studios challenged us to create an efficient project management workflow solution compatible with their centralized storage system, that would also drive better workflow efficiencies regarding their corporate adoption of Adobe Creative Cloud®," said Robert Herzan, President and CEO Scale Logic, Inc., "We recommended a solution based on Strawberry software in part because the developers are editors. Consequently, the development team could relate to the habits and the “wish list” of fellow editors. The FlavourSys team would listen and adapt application features in direct alignment to the customers specific workflow requirements. We also could deliver the added benefit of managed application migration from Avid to Adobe within the context of optimizing their overall Adobe workflow. By combining Scale Logic’s industry expertise and services with the Strawberry solution, we were able to deliver a superior solution at a cost-effective price."

“I look forward to continuing these partnerships,” said Daryl Heinis, CTO of Scale Logic, “We maintained a multi-lateral, phased approach in parallel with Turner Studios’ requirements. Scale Logic managed the overall scope of work in conjunction with FlavourSys to deliver consulting services, solution design, and modification and on-site testing. As a result, we provided a streamlined implementation process.

FlavourSys’ Strawberry software enables cross-platform media and project sharing in an open storage environment with support for most high-performance SAN and Scale-Out NAS environments. This storage-agnostic approach enables content professionals to use off the shelf file systems such as StorNext, Isilon, or Scale Logic’s HyperFS SAN and Scale-Out NAS. The Strawberry collaborative workflow helps the post-production editing team at Turner Studios by leveraging these features:

  • Instant Search capability in both projects, comments, and metadata, with proxy viewing, reduces time lost locating media
  • Adobe cache files are now easily handled across the SAN, equating to close and share vs. close and wait workflow
  • Automated custom metadata capture and indexing capabilities that simplify organization and logging
  • Removal of most Finder and Explorer tasks for edit staff that also protects data from accidental deletion
  • Instant project creation, sharing, and discovery across all storage tiers including online, nearline, and archive

"The Strawberry solution was designed from the ground up to provide video editors with the simple tools they need to focus on the work at hand, rather than waste precious editing time trying to managing the underlying technology such as folder organization or storage system tasks," said Marco Stahl, co-founder of Flavoursys. _____________________________________________________________________________________________
