Supercharging your creative workflows, Platform Online gives video professionals the most powerful server in the industry, with storage performance for 4K & beyond, and huge CPU power to offload processor intensive tasks.

The ProMAX Platform Online Series is a High-Performance Workflow Server, designed for video professionals to accelerate and improve their content creation process. It features powerful shared storage that is optimized for video workgroups using Adobe Premiere, Avid Media Composer, Apple’s Final Cut Pro and other creative software applications. Platform scales easily for workgroups of all sizes, is simple to deploy, and integrates seamlessly with existing IT infrastructure.

Platform 1000

As an entry point into our highest server class product line, Platform 1000 brings the speed, reliability, and expandability of Enterprise Storage at an affordable price. With up to 48TB in the base model device, and the ability to expand the system with additional nodes into multiple Petabytes, you can be confident that your investment is secure. A true workflow server with ingest, transcoding, rendering and asset management built in, the Platform 1000 also boasts two 5.25” drive bays that can be optionally filled with LTO drives, Drive Swaps, Card readers or (4) 1TB SSD’s for additional high speed scratch drive.


Platform Online Series is a true shared storage solution for 4K workflows with the video performance to support full resolution 4K editing for up to 5 users or 10 total streams of ProRes 422 HQ Ultra HD. Not quite ready for 4K? See the complete streaming performance chart for specs on all common formats.


Platform is designed to scale easily for today’s dynamic video workgroups.

Scale Storage – Platform Online can support up to 96TB per server (in just 3RU of rack space) and up to 384TB per node, with flexibility to expand to multiple petabytes in a multi-node architecture.

Scale Users – Users can connect to Platform either directly or through a switch using 1GbE or 10GbE over copper or fiber infrastructure. There is no limit to the number of users that may connect and no per user license fees. Platform Online Series can support up to 20 x 1GbE direct connections or 18 x 10GbE connections.

Scale Performance – Platform’s scale-out architecture increases video streaming performance in parallel with expanding storage capacity. So when you add a storage expansion to your Platform server you add another pool of disk bandwidth, increasing the total concurrent streaming performance of the system.


Get organized and find your files faster. Indexing, search, custom metadata tagging, proxy generation and preview are all built-in to Platform and require no additional license fees.


Platform Servers feature a built-in transcode engine that can be upgraded to process up to 8 simultaneous transcodes. This enables creative groups to offload time consuming file conversions from their workstations. Create custom transcode workflows to convert media at ingest or for delivery with support for multiple formats.


A browser based UI allows users and administrators to manage the system and access content from anywhere on the network, and delivers a superior collaborative editing experience for creative workgroups.
