This solution supports a wide range of Avid editing systems, including Media Composer®, Symphony™ and the Avid DS® family of products. It provides parity protection through RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) protection while maintaining multiple streams of both compressed and uncompressed SD and HD media without interruption.

Features and benefits to customers

  • Fail-safe protection of content - Real-time parity RAID goes beyond conventional RAID protection by enabling systems to continue to operate at full performance with no data loss. Cusomters will now be able to complete any work in progress during drive failures, without loss of media and without requiring immediate drive replacement.
  • Full performance during drive rebuild - eliminates costs associated with system downtime by enabling customer's systems to be fully functional during the rebuild process of failed drives. Once the rebuild is complete, resumes full content protection.
  • Optimized for use with Avid editing systems and software - Customers will benefit from increased productivity in the field as a result of rigorous testing of Avid editing systems and software.
