Ascent Media Group (AMG), a long-time customer of Silicon Graphics (OTC: SGID) and an industry leader in content creation, post-production and distribution of film and television, selected SGI(R) server, storage and networking technology as the heart of a new state-of-the-art facility in Burbank, Calif. The SGI hardware and software is part of AMG’s data-centric production network solution, known as ProdNet, which offers studio clients ultra-secure methods for accommodating a large variety of deliverables. With content piracy estimated at $3.5 billion annually, the 100,000-square-foot building, which was gutted to the walls, has been rebuilt to be one of the most modern, most secure, all-digital facilities in the world. SGI Professional Services worked hand in hand with AMG to design and integrate the ProdNet system, which is dedicated to manufacturing, repurposing, and distributing large media assets in huge volumes, with no concession to bandwidth limitations.
