Apace Systems' Network Storage Systems Certified to interoperate with Pinnacle Systems Liquid Series Video Editing Platforms

Orange, Calif., April 18th, 2005 - Apace Systems Corporation®, a leading storage solutions provider for video, announced that its vStor network storage line can support Pinnacle Systems' Liquid, Liquid Pro and Liquid Broadcast editing software for professional grade collaborative editing. Video editing workgroups based on PC based workstations can all get connected to vStor systems via Gigabit Ethernet (GE) as their common network storage pool. Ideal for DV, HDV, SD and compressed HD editing, Liquid Series editing stations can now leverage vStor file based network storage for multi-stream, real-time editing over low cost LAN.

"The Liquid series video editing environment has architecturally been tailored to be offer a friendly environment to shared editing sessions between multiple editors and vStor as a common storage pool offers a perfect complement to tie liquid based editing clients to each other," said Dr. Lee Hu CEO and President of Apace systems. "We are very pleased that with the help of colleagues at Pinnacle Systems we where able to pass Pinnacle Systems review of vStor interoperability with their editing software with flying colors," Dr. Lee Hu added.

vStor storage systems come in v1000 and v2000 series. v1000 is ideal for DV workflows ideal for low to mid-range of the market. The v2000 series covers larger installations that need to serve uncompressed SD, HDV, and compressed HD up to 8 uncompressed SD, 11 compressed HD or 40 DV25 workflow ideal for mid-high end of the market. Ranging in capacity from 1.5 to 8 Terra Bytes, editors access vStor as they would their local workstation drives in Liquid, directly capturing, rendering, retrieving and sharing media content over the network with RAID protection. By sharing media files, editors can reduce great amount of total storage requirement without replicating the content at their local machines or directly-attached storage (DAS). Further, by accessing the latest result from their peers, they can significantly improve productivity. Also, vStor systems offer a security management layer for project managers to allow Liquid generated projects and files to be securely accessed and protected per pre-designated rights of usage and to have a centralized way for virus control and protect user's work. Each user, as part of a workgroup or subgroup, can access private and/or public shared secure storage within the system.

Apace Systems will demonstrate its products at NAB 2005 in the Las Vegas Convention Center, April 18-21, 2005, at its booth #SL4037.

Apace Systems now offers its aggressively priced solution globally through its OEM and Video/Audio Reseller channel partners. vStor v1000/V2000 series have been installed and tested in several strategic partners' sites and is shipping in volume. vStor product pricing begins at $9,995 MSRP.
