SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum Corp. (NYSE: QTM) today announced that its Xcellis® Foundation high-performance, entry-level workflow storage system has earned a NewBay Product Innovation Award. Winners are selected by a panel of professional users based on evaluation criteria that include innovation of concept and design, creative use of technology, price value, and suitability for use in a broadcast TV/professional video or broadcast/online radio environment.
