JMR Electronics Solutions Integrate Seamlessly With AJA KONA Cards

JMR Electronics, the developer of the BlueStor PeSAN family of high performance PCIe-attached storage systems, delivers seamless integration with AJA Video Systems, the leading provider of digital video interface and conversion products to market compatibility assured solutions for Final Cut Studio non-linear editing and content creation.
Using JMR's EXTN-8 PCI Express Extender RAID storage systems, Final Cut users have a high-performance, versatile platform for SD, HD and 2K editing without exhausting the Mac Pro's available high bandwidth PCI Express slots. 
The JMR EXTN-8 features a single x8 PCIe connection to a (JMR supplied) host I-O card installed in the Mac, and expands that to five usable PCIe slots in the RAID storage subsystem shelf, currently available up to 32 TB capacity, but expandable to several hundred TB using standard SATA-2 disk drives.
Josef Rabinovitz, president and CEO of JMR Electronics says: "The EXTN family gives users five new high bandwidth PCIe slots from a single or dual host connection, allowing very fast PCIe direct-attached storage in a common shelf that can be used for an AJA KONA 3 or KONA LHi capture card, internal hardware RAID controllers and other peripherals as needed."
Repeated performance benchmarking for the EXTN-8 verify HD frame transfer rates of over 1.2 GB/s using common SATA-2 disk drives and dual internal hardware RAID controllers.  The product's internal PCIe expansion backplane is compatible with standard PCIe cards of up to 16 lanes connectivity. JMR provides the host I-O card which occupies a single PCIe slot in the server or work station.
"JMR provides a unique solution for Final Cut and KONA users," adds Jon Thorn, Mac product manager for AJA Video Systems. "We used the JMR solution in our booth successfully at NAB 2009, and will be using it again at IBC this year."
