Ciprico Announces Compatibility With Dalsa Origin 4K CameraMediaVault InfiniBand Bridge and 4110 Storage Array Solution (April 26, 2006)
Ciprico Inc. announced that its newly debuted InfiniBand Bridge and 4Gb Fibre Channel MediaVault 4110 RAID array have been tested and certified as compatible with the DALSA Origin, the world's first and only commercially available 4K digital cinematography camera.
In booth SL-4987 at NAB, Ciprico will demonstrate the InfiniBand Bridge and MediaVault 4110s running a short western film shot in 4K by DALSA at the Paramount Ranch. The Origin 4K camera has been used successfully to shoot several productions including "Postcards from the Future," directed by Alan Chan, and most recently a project directed by Jesse Dylan featuring the pop group, "The Black Eyed Peas."
The Ciprico MediaVault InfiniBand Bridge and 4110 package are optimized to meet the stringent storage demands of working in a 4K format for a variety of post production applications. The packaged solution combines the InfiniBand Bridge server, which aggregates multiple 4110 RAID units, each of which has a single 4Gb Fibre Channel controller and ten non-removable disks in a compact 1U rack-mounted enclosure, into a larger, faster, easily managed system capable of delivering 20Gb performance.
Benefiting this solution are the 4110 array's new expansion and RAID 6 features, which enable the connection of multiple units in a "daisy chain" configuration, giving the user Read and Write speeds of up to 380 MB/s per interface and capacity expansion into the tens of terabytes, at the same time increasing reliability and fault tolerance to the extent of ensuring data integrity even in the event of two drive failures. The 4110 array is compatible with Apple Macintosh, Windows, Unix and Linux platforms, as well as major brands of video editing software, capture/playback hardware and post-production software.
