Corgan MediaLab is the media wing of the Corgan architectural and design firm. The MediaLab engages in many different forms of video production and post-production, from animation and motion graphics to VFX and 3-D architectural renderings. The goal of Corgan MediaLab is to bring together creative artists who can develop video narratives for many different industries in a collaborative environment. Their focus and expertise center on the implementation of technology and sophisticated video techniques to tell stories more effectively for their myriad clients.

The Challenge

Corgan MediaLab was experiencing several difficulties with their creative workflow and pinpointed the storage infrastructure as the bottleneck. In addition to a non-linear workflow, versioning was non-existent at the time. Load time for small videos and playback would lock up the network.

The Solution

OpenDrives took a consultative approach with the professionals at Corgan MediaLab to support their varied production workflows, comprising 3D, VFX, film services and a host of other high-intensity workflows. The OpenDrives production solution (Summit) was augmented with a backup and archiving solution (Ridgeview) to replace a tape-based workflow and to help facilitate reuse of footage. In their own words, “we can now do everything.”

 

The Result

By selecting OpenDrives, Corgan MediaLab was able to build a real-time workflow for their mixed media environment providing the team members a shared environment for collaboration across multiple applications and workstations. OpenDrives delivered a solid technology solution and support resulting in the highest level of customer satisfaction.
