This engine is perfect for ProRes 422, DV, DVCPRO HD, HDV, uncompressed SD/HD, 2K and even 4K (Red Camera) film format.

Designed with a built-in EZQuest RAID engine controller card that supports RAID 0, 1, 1E, 3, 5, 6, and JBOD, the card comes with 2GB of SDRAM memory and Intel 800Mhz IOP341 I/O processor. SMPT, SNMP, and GUI RAID configuration utility tools are included.
