NEWS: TID for exhibits PCIe3.0, Thunderbolt 3.0 compatible high speed storage for 4K/8K production by Accusys; demos 2,000MBb/s 8K environment
At its booth at the three-day Inter BEE 2016 exhibition held 11/16~11/18 at Makuhari Messe (Hall 4, Booth 4714), TID demonstrated an 8K video production environment using the ExaSAN Series A16S3-PS high speed disk storage made by Tawian-based Accusys.
The demo was performed in collaboration with Full Score, the company exhibiting in the neighboring booth. Editing equipment at the Full Score booth was connected to storage (A16S3-PS) at the TID booth to present an 8K production workflow.
The A16S3-PS used in the 8K demo provides optimal high speed storage for systems that require high capacity and ultra high speed processing. A built-in 6TB HDD (SATA) enables capacity of up to 96TB on one machine.
Unlike conventional connection methods the system achieves a 2,000MB/s transfer rate on a rack-mounted unit by directly connecting servers and workstations to PCIe (PCI-Express). Already used in many 4K production environments in Japan and abroad, this demonstration highlighted the system’s storage performance in an 8K environment.
The company also decided to speed up exhibition of its latest Thunderbolt 3.0 product, A12T3-Share. A demo employing the A12T3-Share is currently under development.
The A12T3-Share itself is equipped with a 4-port Thunderbolt 3.0 (up to 40Gbps) interface. It supports direct connections to up to four hosts. Thunderbolt connection performance can also be enhanced by connecting to a Mac on two lines (Doubled Transfer Speeds).
