Professional High-Performance Dual-Drive Storage SystemG-RAID is designed specifically for professional content creation applications such as Final Cut Studio. G-RAID features a high-speed interface--3 Gbit eSATA, FireWire 800 (FireWire 400 via cable) and USB2.0 ports--and is available in storage capacities up to an amazing 4TB. When connected via eSATA, G-RAID provides data transfers rates in excess of 200MB/second to support demanding post production environments.
Guaranteed to support playback of multiple layers of video in real time, all in a stylish, clean design
G-RAID is guaranteed to support the simultaneous playback of multiple layers of video in real-time in Final Cut Pro, Premiere and Xpress. This claim is 100% guaranteed, not marketing hype--stream counts during in-house testing of the G-RAID are calculated using a G-RAID filled to 80% capacity and incorporate a full seek from the first file to the last file on the drive. Experience 2 simultaneous video streams for 8/10 bit SD, 4 for DVCPRO HD, 5 for HDV, and 8 for DV25--this is the minimum guaranteed performance from a G-RAID. Stream counts will be significantly greater on a clean drive when attached via eSATA.
To unleash the ultimate performance of G-RAID, connect the system to your workstation using one of G-Technology's high-speed eSATA host adapters (sold separately). The low-cost PCIe x1 adapter provides up to 100MB/second while the PCIe x4 card provides an amazing 200+ MB/second on reads and writes.
