PROMISE Technology Has Starring Role in Video Editing Workflow of Hit European Television Drama

Pegasus Thunderbolt Storage System Used by Editor of Award-Winning German TV Series "Danni Lowinski"

HSINCHU, TAIWAN and MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 13, 2013) -  As a video editor dealing with large quantities of big, high resolution files on a daily basis, Knut Hake knows that excellent throughput is crucial to get the job done right. Looking for a storage solution to replace the internal RAID of his Mac Pro, Hake, editor of the hit German TV series "Danni Lowinski," turned to PROMISE Technology.

As a recognized global leader in the storage industry, PROMISE is the developer of high-performance storage solutions tailor-made for the media and entertainment market. PROMISE's family of products includes the Pegasus R4 -- the world's first hardware RAID storage to unleash the power of Thunderbolt technology.

Hake had edited many of the episodes of "Danni Lowinski" with Apple® Final Cut Pro® and a PROMISE Pegasus R4 -- and for the fourth season he added the Pegasus J4 and Pegasus J2 to his arsenal, which provided him with an unparalleled level of performance and flexibility.

The workflow of "Danni Lowinski" requires Hake to edit rough cuts in his studio in Berlin and then travel to Cologne to finish the final cuts alongside the show's director, Richard Huber. The Pegasus J4 has proven to be extremely versatile and helpful to Hake, as he can now easily move his edit suite from Berlin to Cologne. As an added bonus -- he can take the J4 as carry-on luggage and not worry about drives getting lost or destroyed in the mail. With his laptop, an AJA T-TAP and the Pegasus J4, Hake is provided with the flexibility to take his edit studio along wherever his work may take him.

"The Pegasus J4 with Intel® 520 Series SSDs has been nothing short of amazing," noted Hake. "It is extremely fast and responsive with Final Cut Pro X. I love the flexibility of the system -- the convenience of moving an edit suite from one place to another is truly a great thing to have."

"PROMISE is committed to providing innovative end to end storage solutions for all aspects of media and entertainment, including video, film and broadcast," said John van den Elzen, managing director of PROMISE Technology EMEA. "The Pegasus Thunderbolt series has truly revolutionized the workflows of creative professionals and has expanded what is possible for video editors, photographers, audio engineers, and many more media professionals. We are thrilled that Pegasus has delivered the performance and versatility Hake requires to tell such compelling stories."
