Hard drive capability question
on Jan 26, 2010 at 10:43:03 pm

I'm in the market to buy an EX3. I already have a caldigit s2vr duo (raid 0) which reads at about 160MB/s (when not super full). Will this handle editing in the highest quality mode of the ex3?

160MB/s can easily handle XDCAM EX footage, which at it's highest quality, has a data rate of 4.2MB/s. A bigger issue is if your system can handle the XDCAM codec, which is more processor intensive than most.
