SeaChange Introduces New High-Density Storage System
SeaChange International Inc. premiered a new storage system, “The SeaChange Drawer of Drives,” at IBC2007. It can provide up to 72 TB of storage within a 10-inch-high enclosure. The company claims that with the new system, it’s possible to store more than 3,300 hours of high-definition content recorded at 50 Mbps.

Storage density available in The Drawer of Drives is such that, in conjunction with the company’s ML1G nearline storage server, broadcasters can achieve up to a petabyte of storage capacity.

“SeaChange is firmly committed to supporting broadcasters’ transition to HD with technology that increases efficiency and reliability while also scaling as operations inevitably evolve,” said Chris West, SeaChange International’s vice president of broadcast sales. “We have always prided ourselves on our significant investments in research and development, and the exciting new technology that we are demonstrating at IBC is proof positive that those investments continue to pay off.”

The new storage system is constructed around 72 hot-swappable drives and data is backed up by SeaChange’s RAID2 system.

SeaChange plans to begin delivery of The Drawer of Drives in early 2008.
