Silicon Graphics (OTC: SGID) announces that Sony DADC, a leading producer of optical disc media, has purchased an SGI(R) InfiniteStorage SAN solution to increase throughput, ensure scalability, and improve data management in the automated mastering facility at its Terre Haute, Indiana plant. The plant, which is the flagship Sony disc production facility for the U.S., produces 2.4 million music CDs, DVDs, and UMD game discs in a typical day and provides services that range from postproduction to distribution. Production will increase substantially when Sony DADC begins production in 2006 of 25GB Blu-ray discs, which can contain a complete movie in HDTV format. The company is adding 90,000 square feet to its 700,000-square-foot Terre Haute plant to house Blu-ray production.
