Medea Ships VideoRaid RTR and VideoRaid RTRX Disk ArraysNew arrays offer Ultra160 SCSI connectivity (December 04, 2001)
Medea's VideoRaid RTR and RTRX are designed for DCC applications such as 2D/3D animation, compositing, special effects, game development and non-linear video editing (NLE).
"VideoRaid RTR and VideoRaid RTRX are the industry's first disk arrays to combine support for real-time, multi-stream and HDTV video applications with full RAID protection at prices less than unprotected just-a-bunch-of-disk (JBOD) storage products," said Roger S. Mabon, vice president of channel marketing for Medea.
The RTR family of disk arrays features a high-performance Ultra160 SCSI interface that enables the desktop models to sustain a data transfer rate of up to 130 MB/second. The dual-channel, rack mountable models sustain more than 200 MB/second -- more than enough performance to support 10-bit, 1080i HD capture and playback.
In addition to offering industry-leading performance, Medea's RTR disk arrays also provide RAID data protection. In the unlikely event of a disk drive failure, the systems will continue to operate with no loss of data and no degradation in data transfer rate. The ability to operate at full performance with a "downed drive" enables the user to complete work in real-time environments without requiring immediate drive replacement.
Additional features of VideoRaid RTR disk arrays include:
