Avid ships latest versions of shared-storage systems

Avid has announced the immediate availability of its new Unity shared-storage systems — the Unity LANshare 4.2, Unity MediaNetwork 4.2 and Unity ISIS 1.1 systems.

All of the new shared-storage systems offer significant increases in storage, doubling the capacity of Unity LANshare and MediaNetwork systems, and tripling the capacity of the company’s Unity ISIS system.

The Unity family also supports the company’s Interplay — a nonlinear workflow engine (scheduled to ship in Q3 2006) and the company’s Open Storage Initiative (OSI), which enables customers to run virtually any third-party Mac OS X or Windows XP content creation system, including nonlinear editing, compositing, 3-D animation, and script writing tools, on Avid shared storage.

The new Unity systems offer file system innovations to deliver increased performance and 500GB drives to boost overall capacity.
