Pronology Presents Ruggedised NAS Solution
Pronology, a developer of tapeless workflow solutions, introduced rNAS.m3, a ruggedised, high performance Network Attached Storage (NAS) solution, during NAB 2019. rNAS.m3 allows productions to acquire and transport broadcast media assets, built in a road-ready enclosure that provides maximum strength and resiliency. rNAS.m3 also aids in managing the increased data requirements of 4K and UHD production.
“We developed rNAS.m3 in direct response to our customers’ need for high performance, ruggedised storage that can stand up to the rigours of remote production and transportation,” said Jonathan Aroesty, President of Pronology. “The bandwidth metrics of rNAS.m3 allows for more data acquisition than any other product currently on the market, within this form factor. We are excited to showcase this first-to-market solution, which was recently utilised on the 2019 OSCARS telecast, to attendees at NAB.”
This compact and extremely durable NAS solution is desktop quiet and is designed with industry-standard interfaces as well as a proprietary external status display module. rNAS.m3 is available with hard or soft carrying cases for shipping. The soft case, utilising a TSA-approved carry-on, allows for the secure transportation of media assets.
“Our carry-on case is another added benefit of rNAS.m3, as users have the peace-of-mind that their content can travel with them,” added Aroesty. “Utilising a unique engineering design, the hardware enclosure is assembled with travel and vibration resilient components to create a truly rugged NAS solution. With our full suite of products, the new rNAS.m3 is another important piece of the production workflow that Pronology can provide, creating a true turn-key solution.”
