ATTO Technology Celerity Fibre Channel Host Adapters Used at Cannes International Film Festival

Amherst, N.Y. - ATTO Technology Inc.'s Celerity FC-41XS Fibre Channel host adapters were used as part of Avid editing systems provided by Cap Cine in a collaborative effort with French distributor Additional Design, at the Cannes International Film Festival.
The Celerity host adapters were used to connect three Avid workflows that included 25 Avid Media Composer Adrenaline on three Avid Unity MediaNetwork systems and several productivity tools, like Avid Interplay and Avid Media Manager via Interplay transfer and transfer manager servers.
These Avid workflows have been provided by Cap Ciné for the teams of Le Grand Journal de Canal Plus (the French talk-show in Cannes), TV Festival (the internal and international TV Feed produced by the Film Festival), and Metropolis (the cultural show of the French and German TV ARTE).
