Cinema Pro RAID

EZQuest has revealed the Cinema Pro, a new RAID storage system geared towards video editing. The unit provides 16 bays in a 3U rack format, allowing for up to 24TB of capacity. It uses a 20Gbps external PCIe bus, and transfers approximately 900MBps in RAID 0 mode, or 870MBps in RAID 5; 1, 1E, 3, 6 and JBOD configurations are also supported. Tasks on the Pro are aided by an 800MHz Intel processor equipped with 2GB of SDRAM cache.

Users can connect an optional battery backup module to the Pro, and also have the system send out e-mail notifications via SMTP or remote notification via SNMP. The hardware is Mac and PC compatible, and can be used for editing everything from basic SD and HD video through to 4K-resolution content. The Pro should ship sometime in March, at a starting price of $8,850.
