Digidesign is pleased to offer two new Avid® MediaDrive standalone SCSI hard drives (146 GB and 300 GB) and a new MediaDock Shuttle 146 GB removable SCSI drive.

Each of the new drives share the same outstanding reliability and performance as the rest of the product line. Thermal-sensing fans and warning indicators help to protect data while patented QuietDrive technology helps to reduce drive noise by 20 dB ? an essential benefit in precision monitoring environments.

Avid SCSI drives use the highest performance Ultra 320 LVD 10,000 rpm drives on the market. With data transfer rates up to 320 MB per second, Avid SCSI drives are well equipped to handle audio and video streams and are thoroughly tested for compatibility with Pro Tools® systems. For maximum flexibility, Avid MediaDock Shuttle drives provide the same performance and capacity as the MediaDrive standalone drives, but they are less expensive and can be easily swapped between both Digidesign® and Avid MediaDock chassis.

All of the Avid drives currently offered have been thoroughly tested with Pro Tools TDM 6.9 and Pro Tools LE 6.9 software running on Windows XP and Macintosh OS X systems.
