SNS Debuts MOD: Portable Cloud Edge Device at NAB 2023

St. Louis, MO–April 14, 2023–Studio Network Solutions (SNS), the world leader in shared storage, media asset management, and remote/cloud workflows for professional media teams, today introduced MOD, a compact, high-performance workflow solution for creative professionals.

MOD is a personal-sized server that comes with the award-winning EVO Suite of software tools for unlimited users, including ShareBrowser media asset manager, Slingshot transcode and automation engine, and Nomad for remote editing. Loaded with high-performance SSDs, MOD is a great edge device for cloud production workflows, optimized to manage edge computing tasks like transcoding high-resolution media into proxy files and syncing media to remote EVO servers, EVO Cloud, and third-party cloud platforms like AWS, Dropbox, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Wasabi, and Backblaze.

“MOD is built to revolutionize the way media production teams work from home and on-the-go,” said Ryan Stoutenborough, president at SNS. “We designed MOD to boost content creators’ productivity and collaboration, both as a high-performance cloud edge device and a travel-friendly, flash-based shared storage server.”

“MOD is small enough to fit inside a backpack, but don’t let its size fool you,” said Eric Newbauer, CTO and co-founder at SNS. “This server packs incredible versatility and compute power, built-in dual-port 10Gb Ethernet, and the complete, award-winning EVO Suite included for on-the-go workflows.”

Weighing just 7lbs, this slim and portable server features enclosed drive bays for a more secure, travel-friendly design. Users can accelerate global collaboration with six (6) months of SNS Cloud VPN included for unlimited users, or invite nearby guests to edit directly from the server with multiple direct-connect 10Gb Ethernet ports.
