OpenIO has been for the first time at NAB and has got an interesting number of visits at the booth in the Startup Loft zone. All visitors – users and partners – came with real projects and challenges having problems with some other object storage solutions they’re using or recommend.
Outside of our experience, we saw many key themes like Drone, Surveillance, 360°, Virtual Reality, 4K and a few 8K and of course streaming and encoding/transcoding stuff. With file-based workflow, the momentum has clearly started with large, very large files and OpenIO fits perfectly in that world, again users and partners have recognized our capabilities.
The approach presented by OpenIO with the Video Edition had a very good traction and visitors have wished to learn more about our approach especially with our Grid for Apps model.
