This April, Small Tree will introduce its new 2TB GraniteSTOR ST-RAID direct attached shared storage system at NAB 2010 (booth SL7425).
Offering real time editing for Final Cut users while supporting 12 streams of ProRes 422HQ with no dropped frames, ST-RAID provides consistent performance over Ethernet networks. The 2TB system is available in 8-, 12- or 16-drive configurations.
"GraniteSTOR ST-RAID is ideal for creative facilities requiring affordable, high-performance storage technology to maximize workflow," stated Dale Bradshaw, director of communications for Management & Training Corporation, which recently installed the storage system to eliminate having to copy production files from one desktop to another. "The performance the system achieves over Gigabit Ethernet has enabled our team to optimize its efficiency."
Easy to install and manage, GraniteSTOR ST-RAID enables instant availability and background initialization along with automatic insertion/removal detection and rebuild. For greater flexibility, more storage can be added easily for system expansion.
"ST-RAID delivers the performance video editors need to optimize efficiency at an affordable price," said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. "With the introduction of our new 2TB system, we can offer our customers a more robust solution that facilitates their workflow without crippling their budget."
