Adding another 16 fibre drives to the system for a total of 32 10k spindles.
Atto 8 Gb's dual channel card.
Tomorrow its a 64 port fibre channel director and another 32 spindles.
My goal is 2k dpx stereo playback @ 23.976.
Check me out on face book... Davinci Resolve colorist
I went from a 2008 to a 2009. The performance when I got a second card (I only tested with GTX285 on the 2008) was an incredible boost. I have a 2K 50fps RED RAW here of an explosion I'm making a 'day for night' out of. I have 13 nodes (!!!) and I can still get real-time playback in quarter and half res... Is that insane or WHAT?
My setup is
Mac Pro 2009 2.26GHz, 6GB RAM
Decklink HD Extreme 3D
RocketRAID eSATA controller with 4TB RAID0 spanned over four disks.
Not the wildest setup, but for my range of clients (for now..) it's a massive upgrade from the Color workflow.
I have a Panasonic BT-LH1700W, and in the new office I'm borrowing a BT-LH2600W until I can get a Panasonic plasma up on the wall..
We're in contact with the cinema next door (one floor below actually) to get a deal with one of their smaller theater with about 70 seats. They're installing a Christie 4K projector these days. Well suited for loads of fun. :-)
