Rohde & Schwarz, a global leader in post-production media technologies, has joined forces with ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of network, storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, to optimize the new generation of ATTO 360™ Tuning, Monitoring and Analytics Software, as well as ATTO ThunderLink® N3 3102 and NS 3252 Thunderbolt™ adapters for use with R&S®SpycerNode. Now, macOS customers – in addition to Linux and Windows users – can more easily connect to the SpycerNode media storage solution, benefitting from a significant performance enhancement, without the need for additional PCI slots.  

ATTO’s forthcoming software release will give customers access to three dedicated Rohde & Schwarz tuning profiles, providing automatic adjustments to system control settings with just a few mouse clicks and support for uncompressed single frame file transfers. This latest collaboration builds on an established relationship between the two companies which began with certification of ATTO solutions for the mastering and distribution platform. 

“Large parts of the media and entertainment industry run on macOS, and we want to make it as easy as possible for our customers to work with our media storage and enjoy the same quality experience regardless of their operating system of choice,” commented Dirk Thometzek, Product Manager Storage Solutions at Rohde & Schwarz. “We have a long working relationship with the team at ATTO and we both understand what our customers need and expect in terms of functionality. We are delighted to once again join forces to deliver a step up in performance, allowing our macOS customers to remain focused on delivering high quality creative content.”   

SpycerNode storage reduces complexity while increasing ease of use. With a set of high-value features, it leverages High-Performance Computing file system features for seamless workflow integration and multiple layers of redundancy for comprehensive resilience. The highly user-oriented storage solution is fully scalable and can be adapted to capacity and bandwidth demands during operation. Multiple SpycerNode devices with different configurations can be very easily combined. 

Tim Klein, CEO, ATTO Technology, Inc. commented: “We support both Windows and Linux, but a large proportion of our customer base are Mac users, so pushing the performance envelope to allow greater creative freedom is something we wanted to deliver on. Our close working relationship with the team at Rohde & Schwarz really came into its own and we have been able to achieve a level of performance for SpycerNode that is over and above what the default settings can offer.” 

ATTO 360 Tuning, Monitoring and Analytics Software is a tool for optimizing and maintaining Ethernet networks. It supports ATTO Ethernet products such as ATTO FastFrame Smart Ethernet Adapters and ATTO ThunderLink Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapters, giving every user the ability to easily tune a network for the best performance. The Rohde & Schwarz profiles will be available from Q1 2022, but in the meantime, ATTO 360 is available to download here.
