Actually, i read about a product called vStor, and their tech support said one could do what I suggested with their system. BAsically plug and play with minimal hassle.

However, regardiing the metalan, I understand that the system you described needs a dedicated Macpro and some serious tech guy to set it up, but once it's up and running I assumed anyone could connect an ethernet cable and be ready to work. Guess id doesn't work that way since it needs the software install.

Another question though. Why would an iMac be slower? My idea was (bear with me please) to connect an imac via ethernet, matrox mxo and a dvi monitor for semi-broadcast monitoring. I've used an imac before, and provided you don't overtax it with heavy effects and 20 layers of video, it works fine for DV and HDV, and even prores and SD uncompressed are fine for small timelines. So, in your opinion, is the imac slower because it has a slower architecture (obviously it won't come close to a mac pro) or because the ethernet connection on an imac won't give the same performance as that on a Macpro?

thnx
