Platform Portable Series

Share Anything, with Anyone, Anywhere

Turn Your Hard Drives into Shared Storage for Video

Connect existing storage devices and share content to the workgroup over video optimized 1GbE and 10GbE connections. Platform Portable delivers high quality video streaming performance for consistent online editing with Adobe Premiere, Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer.

Support for Multiple Devices and File Formats

Storage devices can be attached via Thunderbolt, USB, eSATA, FireWire and SAS, and all common file systems including Apple HFS+, FAT32 and NTFS are supported.

Catalog & Search Your Media

Media across all drives can be indexed by the server and files catalogued for easy searching regardless of whether the drives are online or offline. Custom tags can be added to existing metadata to further define searches.

Ready to Travel

Platform Portable features a rugged steel construction, but at 18.4" x 12.3" x 2.9" it is lightweight and small enough to take on a plane or in the car, wherever you need to share content.

The Platform Portable is a unique mobile server that allows creative groups to connect their

existing storage devices and turn them into a simple but sophisticated shared editing environment.
