  • Use for Striped RAID's anymore?

    Is there any benefit to having a striped RAID on my AVID system anymore? I've been working on AVID systems for over 20 years and I'm not sure if its still neccessary like it used to be. Back in the day it was mandatory to have any kind of decent speed in the computer/drives to do it, but what...

  • RAID not showing in My Computer

    Starting to panic here...I have an Avid video RaidRTR320 set up as 2 paralell drives of 2.5Tb. They both show up as healthy and online in Computer Management, but are missing in My Computer.

  • How long does it take to initialize the RAID on ISIS 1000?

    I have been asked this a few times this week, and I am VERY HAPPY to report that there is no setup / RAID build time required. The ISIS 1000 uses "Avid Dual Disk Protection" that does not require and build time, and has a faster recovery time than traditional RAID 6 - we only rebuild the used...

  • Re: best affordable storage solution?

    Thanks so much! If I want to use uncompressed SD media, will USB 3 be fast enough, even if not in a RAID? I am considering getting a thunderbolt RAID and use RAID 1 or 5 to maximize speed/redundancy for the future (if not currently) but it does seem a bit pricey right now...

  • Re: configuring your cpu

    Peter, I've been using it recently (I have 4 cores) with AE (6.5 not CSx) and MC. I've had AE doing some rendering on 3 cores and I've left 1 core for MC while I continue to do some basic editing. I found it quite useful. This is with 1080i footage. I also have very fast hard drives - a combination...

  • Backup System recommendations

    I was wondering if anyone has a good recommendation for backing up past projects/AvidFiles/RawFiles. I don't want to use a raid, because if that is stolen or damaged all is lost. I was thinking of purchasing two high capacity drives and backing up to both. What are peoples thoughts on DROBO, any...
