Gorilla Announces Open Architecture Alternative to AVID Interplay and ISIS; will Demo at Cisco’s Briefing Center on 28 January

2014/01/21
Gorilla Technology Inc. has released an open architecture platform as an alternative solution to AVID Interplay and Isis, Gorilla X-Share. 

As a workflow solution targeting media companies, TV broadcasters and production houses, Gorilla X-Share provides a common platform between multiple video editing suites – including AVID, Apple, and Grass Valley – thus offering a single yet open collaboration platform for video production. 

“Gorilla X-Share solves the production bottlenecks that are plaguing today’s media production and professional broadcasting industries,” said Dr Spincer Koh, CEO of Gorilla Technology. “Rigid, proprietary systems continue to stifle the efficiency, speed, and global reach of media companies, and in an industry where time means money Gorilla offers a way to streamline workflows across multiple productions and locations.”

With its broadcast industry solutions built around proven Media Asset Management and Tiered Archiving technology, Gorilla has incorporated individual non-linear editing (NLE) bays into its solution designs before. However, Gorilla X-Share solves the problems associated with isolated “production silos” by facilitating new and more efficient workflows between multiple NLE production teams. Gorilla’s solution also facilitates more efficient creative processes by being scalable across multiple sites and by including support for remote and mobile approval of rough-cut content.

In 2012, Gorilla announced it had integrated AVID Interplay as part of its Gorilla Silverback end-to-end workflow solution. The implementation allowed the automatic transfer of AVID sequences and clips between AVID ISIS storage and Gorilla’s MAM and Archiving modules. 

At NAB 2013 Gorilla announced it was offering Gorilla Silverback as a hybrid cloud solution enabling workflow monitoring and control across multiple sites.  Gorilla also announced its certification for Cisco’s UCS platform.

Gorilla X-Share leverages the integrated server and storage architecture of Cisco UCS to deliver a high-performance solution for handling the heavy demands of broadcast content. 

The announcement and demonstration of Gorilla X-Share on Cisco UCS at Cisco’s London Executive Briefing Center on January 28, represents the availability of Gorilla’s collaboration platform as both an on-premises appliance and as a cloud-based service.
