3 What is Media & Entertainment In the media asset industry, companies can be categorized into video production, TV stations and network streams. Video production services include most advertising productions, film post-processing and animation productions such as Pinewood or Time Warner. TV stations contain local or nationwide TV stations such as China Central Television (CCTV), American Broadcasting Company (ABC), etc. Network streams are a new media category usually used in network television, VOD and social streaming sites such as Facebook and YouTube. In the following section, we will introduce how media workflows are used in M&E industries. Media Service System Overview Figure 1 Media service system and workflow Ingest The ingestion process involves everything from image capture to ingesting videos to local computers via upper-layer software programs and finally migrating those materials into a storage system. Ingest performance may vary depending on upper-layer software behavior and video type. Video ingestion types have changed from a single of SD to multiple channels of HD, UHD and even 4K and 5K streams, requiring increasingly more storage write-bandwidth and reliability. Infortrend storage solutions provide the high write-performance required to ingest these streams, not only saving processing time, but also giving customers more time for their editing and creative processing.

4 Edit/Composite Currently, non-linear editing is more popular than traditional tape editing. With their non-linear editing capabilities, Infortrend storage systems are compatible with most major third-party editing software programs, allowing you to edit and design with stable performance and high availability thanks to their redundant core components. We provide a smooth video ingest in multiple high-resolution streams with no single point of failure. Furthermore, Infortrend storage is architected to provide maximum scalability to ensure all your video materials can be stored and retrieved well as your storage capacity requirements change. Render/Transcode Whether you are transcoding clips to multiple formats or rendering images, high-performance and low-latency storage are key to all processes. Infortrend delivers excellent performance to meet the needs of critical IOPS-intensive and latency-sensitive operations, as well as the latest drive technology to maximize SSDs utilization within a storage system. Digital asset Digital asset storage must provide a huge capacity to save massive videos, image and sound files for a long time, while allowing those media assets to be accessed frequently and efficiently. In TV stations, we call digital asset storage a MAM service system. Infortrend storage systems help users to digitally store a variety of media materials with flexible and scalable expansion enclosures to satisfy the demands of different editing groups. Content delivery With increasing demand for cost-efficient high-resolution content, many editing groups are looking for a critical system to support the massive uptake in users of multi-stream delivery services, such as studio broadcasting and master control broadcasting. Media workload in video production mainly processes sequential read behaviors with some random read I/O blocks. With multiple data-intensive audio and video playback, throughput and latency are key performance evaluation indicators and critical components of successful distribution by traditional broadcast, satellite, internet video or social media. Infortrend storage systems provide multiple effective streaming and high-quality media playback with the best price performance in the market. Active archive To help you produce creatively inspiring media, Infortrend storage systems deliver high-bandwidth stable performance, maintaining your workflow and allowing you to access historical content fast unlike traditional tape storage. With flexible and scalable capacity, active archives are deployed using cost-effective expansions to store huge media data. Regardless of whether editing groups focus on all or just some of these six media workflows, Infortrend storage systems provide performance, capacity and reliability to fit any demands from any type of media and ensure your workflows run smoothly and safely.

6 In the video production process, storage systems face four key challenges: Excellent Storage Performance for Improved Efficiency Storage performance throughput must support multiple streams in editing and simultaneous delivery. Video format resolutions, frames per second and compression rate will lead to different demands of bandwidth (Table 1). Infortrend storage systems can be configured for all kinds of media operations, from corporate media and studio broadcasting to 4K post-production and master control broadcasting services. Since media data contains a variety of video stream services formed by huge data blocks, high throughput is a must. Moreover, when it comes to continuous video recording and playback, low latency and stable throughput ensure no frames are lost or freeze. Infortrend storage systems provide excellent performance with stability and low latency. Resolution FPS Compression Video Throughput (MB/s) Uncompressed RGB 10-bit fps BluRay H (cinema) ProRes (4K) 4096 x 2160 Uncompressed RGB 10-bit fps (low end video) BluRay H ProRes (2K) 2048 x fps (cinema) 20fps (low end video) Uncompressed RGB 10-bit BluRay H ProRes Uncompressed RGB 10-bit BluRay H ProRes Table 1: Example of 4K and 2K stream throughput demands to different video formats Flexible Storage Capacity for Improved Media Workflow Infortrend disk enclosures support SSD, SAS, NL-SAS, or a combination of different drive types. 12Gb/s SAS technology boosts performance and doubles the previous 6Gb/s transfer speed. To fit the needs of a wide range of editing groups, we provide a variety of form factors for customers to choose from, including not only the standard 2U12/3U16/4U24-bays, but also high-density models with 4U 48-bays and 4U 60-bays, ideal for capacity-hungry media applications. Compatibility with third-party file sharing systems and Video Editing Software In SAN storage architecture, additional file sharing systems, such as Xsan, StorNext, Sanergy, are needed to ensure all editing groups can access media materials simultaneously. Compatibility with media editing software, such as Apple Final Cut Pro and Adobe Creative Cloud, is important to support non-linear editing and heavy stream processing.

8 EonStor DS 3000 series - Small Editing Group and Archiving With today's demand for ultra high definition contents, the Media & Entertainment industry is always looking for ways to improve their techniques, from special effects to the storage hardware that supports vast content streams. Infortrend EonStor DS 3000 is the ideal solution for multimedia editing with multiple simultaneous 4K media stream support. Infortrend s EonStor DS 3000 media solution features 16Gb/s Fibre connectivity, the latest in storage technology and flexible online expansion of up to 360 drives. Infortrend EonStor DS 3000 series 5,500MB/s seq. read, 2,200MB/s seq. write 16Gb/s FC Technology High Density 4U48/4U60 bays RAID and JBOD Support Up to 360 drives Figure 6 Infortrend EonStor DS 3000 series Storage system: EonStor DS 3000 series with RAID6 configuration Compatible third-party FSs: Xsan, StorNext, Sanergy, metasan, etc Expansion Options: 2U12, 3U16, 4U48 and 4U60-bay 6Gb/s SAS JBODs Drive Types: 6Gb/s NL-SAS 7.2K Host Connectivity and Network layer: 16Gb/s or 8Gb/s Fibre Channel network switching mode III. Video Stream Performance Optimization Function: AV Optimization Mode AV optimization Mode is a media enhancement within Infortrend EonStor DS family designed to optimize high resolution media applications such as 5K, 4K, 2K, UHD, HD video and multiple streaming application such as VoD with two major parameters: read-ahead and maximum drive response time. Read-ahead not only automatically detects multiple sequential I/O behaviors, but also appropriately sets up the size of pre-read cache for each stream, prompting essential media data to be cached, providing a stable high throughput without frame drop. Maximum drive response time ensures every drive responds to each I/O request immediately. If one (RAID5) or two (RAID6) drives experience delays in their I/O response, the read-ahead feature will read parities in cache, allowing the Infortrend storage system to use parities to compute the needed data instead of waiting for the delayed I/O to provide a smooth video streaming in any ingestion or production. To validate our improved performance, we tested AV Optimization with AJA benchmark tool and using SPC-2 s method with RAID 5. The results speak for themselves: using one Infortrend RAID system with 5 JBODs delivers 25%-39% improvement in broadcasting 5K/4K video and nearly 7,400MB/s read throughput performance with providing support for up to 9,400 simultaneous VoD streams.

17 Other Components in Infortrend Video Test Environment Fibre Channel Switching In the SAN storage structures, the network requires the deployment of one or more Fibre Channel switches to satisfy the throughput demands from multiple users access. Be sure to use Fibre Channel switches with the correct settings, such as 16Gb/s FC, 8Gb/s FC or 10Gb/s iscsi (SFP+). ATTO Thunderlink FC 16Gb/s MAC Pro does not support Fibre Channel HBA card. ATTO Thunderlink 16Gb/s FC is the recommended bridge to connect client servers to Infortrend storage system via Fibre Channel switches to support high stream throughput. Thunderlink can be replaced if client servers support Fibre channel HBA card, without affecting the SAN architecture. Connections Fibre Channel Cable Thunderbolt Cable The Fibre cable needed is the LC-LC, which is available in a variety of lengths to fit your racks or system deployments. LC-LC is used to connect from ATTO thunderlink FC or HBA cards, to Fibre Channel switches in the storage subsystems. Thunderbolt cables are used to connect from MAC Pro to ATTO Thunderlink. The speed of each thunderbolt cable is 10Gb/s. Copyright 2016 Infortrend Technology, Inc. All rights reserved. Page 17 / 18
