With its unveiling, Aberdeen revolutionizes the handling of 2K and 4K video files in the on-set and near-set post-production and dailies environments.

The transition to Digital Acquisition is accelerating. While there are many software applications developed for the management and manipulation of digital files on-set, until now there has been little hardware development specific to the unique requirements of On-Set/Near-Set Dailies. Aberdeen listened to media and entertainment computer users, surveyed the established deployed systems and developed this smaller, highly cost- effective and extremely powerful new platform. Traditionally, media editing and dallies data management has been performed on a powerful workstation connected to a direct attached storage (DAS). That was the default way to manipulate and play large 2K or 4K files in real time. The AberDailies system combines both, thus eliminating the need for a separate DAS.

NAB 2013 Introduction

At NAB 2013, Aberdeen is proudly unveiling and showcasing the AberDailies, a GPU/application server specifically designed for the Media and Entertainment industry. This revolutionary 5U server finds itself at home running dailies management, color correction and deliverable creation in the on-set and near-set production environments, and equally at home running editorial, color correction and VFX applications in the post-production environment.

Aberdeen has combined the input of many industry leaders and customized the AberDailies to optimize its performance in the full gambit of M&E applications. For example, MTI Film provided many insights which aided greatly in the AberDailies' development. The AberDailies running MTI Film's Cortex::Control Dailies application delivers an unparalleled high performance, cost effective solution of on-set/near-set and facility environment for dailies data management, color correction and deliverables creation. Previous hardware deployed for this application required workstations with external storage arrays and external peripherals filling up an entire short rack, all of which are now neatly packaged in a single 5U AberDailies enclosure.
