ProMAX Systems, manufacturer of multi-functional, high-performance shared storage servers and editing workstations for video, has announced a new partnership with Key Code Media to represent ProMAX’s Platform Series. The former competitors have found a new alliance since ProMAX has exclusively moved to manufacturing video shared storage solutions, transitioning away from the firm’s 20 year history serving as a leading VAR to the video post production industry.
The manufacturer and reseller have aligned to increase ProMAX’s outreach not only within the media and entertainment sector but also to expand the New Platform Series’ reach among broadcast, corporate, educational, house of worship and government markets to answer shared video storage and post production workflow needs.
“ProMAX Platform brought some unique technologies and clever approaches to shared storage; robust CPUs which can both transcode and render directly on Platform, replication technologies on a standard Windows 2012 Server. Platform brings both a unique workflow to the industry along with super competitive pricing. At Key Code Media, we are focused on defining the best alternatives for our clients enabling them to make investments with solid returns to their business,” summarizes Key Code Media’s President, Mike Cavanagh.
ProMAX CEO, Jess Hartmann adds, “Key Code is well known for its high levels of integrity and client consultative services. We are building a reseller channel that personifies the high performance and quality standards that are built into our systems. Having known Key Code’s competencies as a competitor, it’s great to be working with their team to expand ProMAX’s visibility in the video shared storage arena.”
About The ProMAX Platform Series
Since ProMAX launched the Platform shared storage server in Q4 2012, it has become the most eagerly adopted new product of its kind by video companies of all sizes. ProMAX changed what video and media professionals expect from shared storage by introducing Platform’s unique multi-functional modules. Platform gained industry attention by delivering superior video performance and intuitive data management capabilities in addition to powering demanding workflow functions such as transcoding, asset management and archive. The recently announced New Platform Series models significantly increase the servers’ scalability, adding multi-location features and functions extending from 8 terabytes to 25 petabytes; firmly positioning Platform servers as an Enterprise class solution.
