13 STORAGE SOLUTIONS MARCH 2016 STORAGE SOLUTIONS BANDITO BROTHERS INVESTS IN AVID SHARED STORAGE BURLINGTON, MA — LA-based media company Bandi- to Brothers ( has invested in Avid's ( new shared storage system, a solution designed for creative teams to deliver the flexibility and efficiency they need to handle any kind of project. Powered by the Avid MediaCentral Plat- form, the system enables the studio's creative teams to collaborate efficiently regardless of which editing application they use. Bandito Brothers is an award-winning, full-service media company that creates, produces, manages and distributes audiovisual content for clients that include major film studios like Universal and Warner Bros., and brands that include Electronic Arts and BMW. Working primarily on feature films and commercials, the com- pany increasingly has to work with numerous formats and large file sizes, including 4K and 6K raw files. Its creative teams use the Avid Artist Suite's Media Composer editing software and Pro Tools digital audio software, as well as Adobe Premiere Pro. The compa- ny invested in the Avid Storage Suite's new Avid ISIS | 1000 shared storage system to help them work more collaboratively with very large and difficult-to-play files across all editing applications. "ISIS | 1000 gives us the collaborative power we need to share projects across a wide range of tools and staff, and to complete projects in less time," says Lance Holte, senior director of post production at Bandito Brothers. "The fact that it's software agnostic means everyone can use the right tools for the job, and we don't need to have several different servers with different projects and workflows. Media Composer is the industry standard and its collaborative editing ca- pabilities are second to none. But for smaller projects, where things like bin locking and collaboration are less essential, we use Premiere Pro." Bandito Brothers' ISIS | 1000 system is accessible from three separate buildings at its Los Angeles cam- pus — for music, post and finishing. Bandito Brothers has facilities for music, post and finishing.
