NewTek Qualifies Medéa's Disk Arrays for Video Toaster
June 6, 2002
Medéa Corp.'s VideoRaid RTR and VideoRaid RTRX disk arrays have been qualified by NewTek for use with the company's new Video Toaster, a Windows 2000-based live video production environment. NewTek cited VideoRaid's reliability and ability to protect content during a disk-drive failure.
VideoRaid RTR and VideoRaid RTRX are designed for digital content creation applications such as 2D/3D animation, compositing, special effects, game development and non-linear video editing. The RTR family features an Ultra160 SCSI interface that enables the desktop models to sustain a data transfer rate of up to 130 MBps. The dual-channel, rack-mountable models sustain over 200 MBps, enough to support 10-bit, 1080i HD capture and playback.
The disk arrays also provide RAID data protection.
