Super Deluxe is a disruptive entertainment brand dedicated to cultivating diverse auteurs and amplifying unconventional voices across multiple platforms from television to social media to live interactive programming. The company, which is a division of Turner, has been described by the Los Angeles Times as shaping the future of television and selected by Fast Company as one of the Top Ten Most Innovative Companies in Hollywood. In order to simultaneously accommodate sophisticated video and television post-production workflows on a quick turnaround, Super Deluxe needs a storage solution that facilitates speed and dexterity.

“With OpenDrives, we are able to share the workload across all of our post and producing staff. This allows the creatives to spend more time creating and less time managing files.”  Grant Keiner, VP of Post Production at Super Deluxe

The Challenge

The problems Super Deluxe previously encountered with post-production workflows are similar to those experienced by legacy entertainment groups. There are technical challenges to working with enormous amounts of data while allowing for fast storage and data access in a collaborative, multi-user environment. Because OpenDrives mitigates these issues, Turner recommended our technology as a solution.

The Solution

Our partnership with Super Deluxe has gone beyond just being a faster, more reliable, and cost-effective storage solution. We’ve worked closely with the company to put a Summit main production storage solution in place with a Ridgeview backup, and this has resulted in high-performance benefits throughout every stage of the post-production workflow. 

The Result

Our OpenDrives storage solutions allow Super Deluxe to forget about the difficult technical challenges that users experience during post-production with older, underperforming SAN solutions so that they can focus on their core business. And that makes us at OpenDrives smile.
