Quantum Corp. announced that its Xcellis high-performance shared workflow storage system won "Best of Show" for postproduction technology in the fifth-annual StudioDaily Prime Awards at the 2016 NAB Show.
The award, given to the most outstanding product in the category, was based on an evaluation by a panel of judges convened by StudioDaily. In addition, Post magazine named Xcellis a "Post Pick," an elite group of "the most innovative and coolest new products and technologies" that also "captured the most attention and interest" at NAB.
The StudioDaily and Post honors were just the latest industry recognition for Xcellis. Since the beginning of the year, the workflow storage system has received the 2016 Storage Visions Award for Visionary Products as well as the Broadcast Beat Innovation Award for Content Management, and Xcellis also has been named a finalist for the IABM Game Changer Awards.
