A Storage Solution That Grows

Shared Storage is at the center of any collaborative video team,  but few workgroups start and end with just Shared Storage.  Products for organizing, protecting & managing media exist because thousands of users worldwide have realized that shared storage alone won't solve their needs.

Platform was designed as an all-in-one system for managing, archiving and securely backing up media for creative teams of all shapes, sizes and budgets. See how ProMAX Platform compares to other shared storage systems on the market.

As your business grows, your Platform grows with you, giving you all the features and depth of capability that you need today and tomorrow.  You won't sacrifice high end performance or the scalability offered by enterprise storage vendors.

What to Expect with Platform

ProMAX Platform shared storage for creative teams

Performance

Whether you're a typical workgroup collaborating on projects shot in compressed 4K that will ultimately be viewed online, or color-grading DPX files for a theatrical release, ProMAX has a server that will supercharge your workgroup!

Scale Storage + Scale Your Workflow

Not every team needs to scale in the exact same way.  At ProMAX, scalability is about providing great options for adding users, storage or performance.  But scalability is also about preparing yourself for tomorrow's workflow, not just today's.

Single Vendor Solution

There is no greater technology frustration than when something doesn't work quite right and a vendor says "We've never seen this, it must be the other product".  Good luck coordinating that.

Spend time working rather than corralling vendors to take responsibility.
