ATTO Technology, Inc., a global leader of storage connectivity and infrastructure solutions for data-intensive computing environments, announced today that it will integrate the ATTO ExpressSAS R348, a high-performance 3-Gb SAS RAID adapter, within the Inscriber® G7™ broadcast graphics system from Harris Corporation. Recently introduced at the 2008 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) convention in Las Vegas, the Inscriber® G7™ is the most advanced HD/SD 3D graphics and animation system available for live-to-air environments.
Supplying the highest available SAS throughput, the ATTO ExpressSAS family of 3-Gb RAID adapters supports data-intensive applications including digital media streaming, tape and backup, rich content delivery and complex databases. Combining ATTO’s unique Advanced Data Streaming (ADS™) Technology with high-performance RAID protection, the ExpressSAS R348 provides Inscriber® G7™ users with enhanced I/O performance while generating complex, real-time 3D graphics and animations in both HD and SD.
The ATTO ExpressSAS R348 is a highly configurable 3-Gb SAS RAID adapter offering users the flexibility to select either four internal and four external ports, or eight internal ports to provide up to 300 MB/sec. throughput performance per port. With the option of connecting SAS, SATA or SATA II storage, the ExpressSAS R348 supports bandwidth intense applications for video editing and broadcast environments, while providing the ability to add RAID protection.
“By bundling the ATTO ExpressSAS RAID adapter with the high-powered Inscriber G7 broadcast system from Harris, users will get enhanced data throughput required for HD live-to-air production," notes Edward Tierney, director of marketing for ATTO. "The 3-Gb SAS adapter allows Harris to bring a faster and more reliable graphics solution to the broadcast market.”
“Broadcasters today demand the highest possible HD and 3D graphics capabilities, as well as workflow enhancements, and the ATTO ExpressSAS R348 adds a significant edge to our Inscriber G7 system,” says Mike Bernhardt, Director of Product Marketing for Inscriber graphics systems, Harris Broadcast Communications. “By integrating ATTO’s high-performance 3-Gb SAS RAID adapter with the Inscriber® G7™, Harris is able to provide customers with some of the industry’s most powerful graphics creation and playout capabilities.”
