Infortrend® Technology, Inc. announced that one of the major entertainment groups in K-pop industry has chosen its storage solution for video post-production. The entertainment company has been Infortrend’s customer for over a decade as its M&E storage solutions enable smooth media workloads from video editing and rendering to archiving.
Ranked as one of the top three entertainment groups in Korea, the company features world-renowned K-pop artists, and its YouTube channel has reached around 2 billion views. As an established benchmark of the entertainment industry, the company produces a substantial amount of promotional videos, including music videos, trailers, behind-the-scenes, vlogs, and more. They are all created by the dedicated post-production team using Final Cut Pro.
Due to the ever-increasing content production and demand for ultra-high definition videos, the company recently planned to expand its storage infrastructure.

This time, they have chosen EonStor DS SAN storage, which supports up to 448 drives, allowing for PB-level capacity to store created content.

In our experience, Infortrend storage is the best solution for video editing,” – said the Managing Director and Director of the Video Production Division of the Entertainment Group.
