Ciprico announce DiMeda 2400 shared storage solution

Ciprico have announced a revolutionary solution to address the growing need for shared storage in broadcast and post-production non-linear editing environments.
Ciprico’s DiMeda 2400, the world’s first Digital Media Appliance, offers high performance media file sharing over Gigabit Ethernet.
Traditionally, editors were faced with using Storage Area Network (SAN) technology because of high throughput requirements. The new DiMeda 2400 provides the high performance of SAN with NAS (Network Attached Storage) ease of use for systems running DV25 data rates. DiMeda provides an effective alternative to a SAN, which may still be preferred for applications needing very high performance for large number of clients running DV50 data rates.
Ciprico’s DiMeda 2400 has been specifically tuned to provide the performance required in a multi-seat edit environment running video editing applications like Incite editor and Adobe Premiere on multiple workstations equipped with Matrox hardware. “The performance of the
DiMeda 2400 in providing real time media sharing between editors and the flexibility and ease of use of the pervasive Gigabit Ethernet as a transport media, makes it the ideal solution for performance starved editors,” states Mohan Mysore, Ciprico Market Manager for Entertainment and Media.
The match of this solution for non-linear editing applications has strengthened a long-standing relationship between Matrox, a leading provider of software and hardware solutions in graphics and video editing, and Ciprico. Matrox has finished extensive testing and has certified the Ciprico DiMeda 2400 for typical post-production and broadcast editing applications. The two companies are joining efforts to bring high technology solutions at affordable prices to the demanding NLE (non linear editing) market space.
“The ease of installation and use of the DiMeda is exceptional,” said Lee Kaburis, Product Manager for Matrox Video Products Group. “Using DiMeda storage is as simple as accessing a shared network drive, and its performance allows up to five DV25 video editing systems to simultaneously share multimedia data.”
Video Technics, a video server manufacturer using Matrox products, is using DiMeda with the new Apella VCS (Video Clip Server), in a solution that supports both DVCPRO/DVCAM and multiple bit rate MPEG-2 clips. The combined system architecture makes a scalable system that easily integrates into any Master Control or Production room by providing a total media workflow process: from creation, to refinement, to approval, to on-air play out.
