Industry: HD video production and post-production
Working Environment: Final Cut

An award-winning HD video production company with an unrivaled reputation for delivering creativity and value, inMotion DVS offers unmatched multimedia production, digital audio production and live event support services to its corporate, government, institutional and broadcast client roster.  


With 10 Final Cut editing stations consisting of 4 Mac Pro towers and 6 MacBook Pros connected across a failing shared storage system, inMotion required an affordable, working shared storage solution that would enhance project management, and provide optimal flexibility in editing room usage.


Small Tree’s GraniteSTOR ST-RAID Ethernet-based shared storage system offering real-time editing capabilities enabled inMotion’s creative team to maximize its productivity without impacting its bottom line. While the company’s president was impressed with the Small Tree technology, he was even more enamored with the company’s unparalleled customer service. Installing a 32 TB, 16 drive GraniteSTOR system, inMotion found an economical, functional and easy to manage storage solution whose scalability will accommodate the company’s future growth.
