Still on the theme of disks

There are some details on Russian video manufacturer CTT’s website of a flash disk (the “Mediator HD Flash DVR”) with 330MB/s write speed (enough to record uncompressed HD, if the blurb is to be believed). This could well prove to be a welcome substitute to Grass Valley’s somewhat unfavourably priced Venom FlashPaks.

HD Flash DVR is able to record uncompressed HD 1920х1080 30p YUV 4:2:2 video stream up to 15 minutes long.

There are three interface options

* HD/SD SDI – support video industry standards for uncomressed video streams, from PAL/NTSC up to 1080/30p;
* LVDS – wide-used high speed differential interface for easy integration into third systems
* Optical Channel – 1, 2 and 4Gb/sec for long distance or computer industry applications

Finally, the Facilis Terrablock… is a SAN with a twist: the twist being that connected systems think it’s a local disk rather than a remote disk.

I can’t really do it justice, so I suggest you check out Studio Daily… for a decent in-depth article.
