I've tried reading all the posts in the search for an answer to our problem but I fail to see how to solve this.
Basically, we are two editors on two macs needing to share media badly without clogging each other's machine playback. Right now we have a bunch of external hard drives connected to our computer with firewire 800 and shared through Ethernet. Obviously this was a temporary set-up as is anything but ideal. We don't do hi-end stuff, mostly XDCAM EX 1080i50 35mb type of edits.
What would would guys recommend as an affordable set-up to our situation and needs?
