Medéa Corp. on Wednesday announced VideoRaid RT3 and VideoRaid RT3X, new additions to its line of VideoRaid disk arrays. The ATA-based RAID storage solutions, which feature an Ultra320 SCSI interface, will be released next month.
VideoRaid RT3 and RT3X support real-time SD and HD non-linear editing systems for Mac and Windows systems, including AJA’s Io and Kona SD/HD, Pinnacle’s CineWave RT Pro/HD and Avid non-linear editing systems. The former features a single-channel Ultra320 SCSI interface and storage capacities up to 1.25TB. VideoRaid RT3 supports the real-time playback of multiple SD video streams and will capture and playback 8-bit, 1080/24p HD footage. List prices start at US$2,129.
VideoRaid RT3X is a dual-channel, Ultra320 SCSI disk array with 10 disk drives; it’s available in storage capacities up to 2.5TB in a low profile (3U) rack mountable enclosure. When each channel of VideoRaid RT3X is striped together using an Ultra320 SCSI adapter, the system provides more than enough performance to capture and playback the highest quality 10-bit, 1080i HD footage, according to Medea. List prices for the VideoRaid RT3X start at $3,959.
