Medea Ships New SCSI RAIDs

VideoRaid RTR, RTRX feature Ultra160 interface By DMN Staff Writer
Medea has started shipping new RAID arrays targeted for video editors and 3D animators. The new VideoRaid RTR and VideoRaid RTRX are currently being shown at the DV Expo, which is going on this week in Los Angeles.

According to Medea, VideoRaid RTR and VideoRaid RTRX are the first disk arrays to combine support for real-time, multi-stream and HDTV video applications with full RAID protection. The RTR disk arrays feature Ultra160 SCSI interfaces that sustain a data transfer rate of up to 130 MB per second. The dual-channel, rack mountable models sustain more than 200 MB per second for 10-bit, 1080i HD capture and playback.


The VideoRaid RTRs are available in 160 GB to 600 GB configurations, scalable to multi-terabyte configurations, according to Medea. They support multi-stream technology for playback of up to three uncompressed video streams. The drives are hot-swappable, and the power supplies and controllers are removable.

The five-drive VideoRaid RTR is available in 160 GB, 240 GB and 300 GB capacities with list prices starting at $3,999. VideoRaid RTRX is available in five- and 10-drive configurations with capacities of 160 GB, 240 GB, 300 GB, 320 GB, 480 GB and 600 GB. List prices on VideoRaid RTRX start at $4,599.
