Aurora Video Systems has started bundling Medea disk arrays and ATTO SCSI controllers with its video capture systems. The bundle deals affect three digital capture cards, all of which will include one of Medea's four-drive VideoRaid disk arrays.
The Aurora Video Systems Entry-Level, Pro Starter and Pro Capture bundles include Aurora Igniter or Aurora Fuse video capture cards, Medea VideoRaid SCSI disk arrays and ATTO Express PCI UL3D Ultra3 SCSI dual-channel host adapters.
Aurora Igniter allows users to capture and play back video at 13.3 MB per second. Igniter features CCIR 601 video resolution and 16-bit, 48 kHz stereo audio along with the option to upgrade to Component I/O with balanced audio.
