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.
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.”
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.
