(Nasdaq: HILL), a leading provider of SAN storage solutions, today announced its award-winning AssuredSAN™ 3003 Series storage will be featured in three different solutions at NAB Show 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Center April 14-19. Through these end-to-end video post-production workflow demonstrations, NAB Show attendees will see first-hand why so many experts rely on the richly-featured AssuredSAN storage platform for their media and entertainment applications.

The blazing speed of Dot Hill storage combined with full support for Windows®, OS X® and Linux® environments, makes Dot Hill AssuredSAN solutions ideal to support workflows using Apple® Final Cut Pro®, Autodesk® Flame® and Autodesk Flame Premium software, or any application demanding extreme video streaming performance and proven reliability.

"With a twenty year track record of innovative development, Autodesk's production-proven creative tools help artists build better 3D visual effects," said Benoit Pinsonnault, Autodesk Media & Entertainment, director of operations.

NAB Show attendees will see a 72 terabyte Dot Hill AssuredSAN storage system powering a StorNext® SAN. Running simultaneous demos on three different platforms, this single storage system will illustrate a true end-to-end dailies / editorial / finishing pipeline:
