Booth 5D4-02 June 18-21, 2013, Singapore

SIMI VALLEY, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 6, 2013) - Qualstar Corporation (NASDAQ: QBAK), a manufacturer of data storage solutions and high-efficiency power supplies, today announced that its highly regarded RLS™ Expandable Rack Mount Tape Libraries will be showcased in the Ideal Systems booth at Broadcast Asia 2013. Ideal Systems, the leading broadcast media systems company in Asia is integrating Qualstar tape libraries with XenData SX-520 Series digital video archive solutions which offer broad compatibility and work seamlessly with popular media asset management and broadcast automation systems suppliers including Aveco, Avid, Cinegy, Dalet, EVS, Harmonic, Evertz.

Qualstar's RLS™ Expandable Rack Mount Libraries are user-expandable in less than 15 minutes and extremely scalable. The key is Qualstar's FastPass™ tape mover, a simple robust design that passes tapes between modules in under two seconds. It fits completely inside the library cabinet, requires no additional power and is easily installed by the user. FastPass merges up to four RLS modules into a single, efficient, cost-effective library storing over 50,000 hours of HD content and housing up to 20 tape drives in one 19-inch rack. 

Providing a network attached storage (NAS) architecture, the XenData SX-520 Series transforms the digital video archive as a network share, enabling archive files to be accessed over networks and seamlessly integrated into other standards-based applications and workflows. The standard NAS architecture eliminates the need for extensive customization and minimizes the technical resources required for integration.

Qualstar tape libraries are available through Authorized Resellers such as Ideal Systems. Contact Ideal Systems at, or tel: +852 2801 4040. Contact Qualstar, an Authorized Reseller or visit for more information.
