Best and affordable storage solution for our local network editing
on Aug 25, 2010 at 3:50:54 am

Hi,

We have 6 editing workstations which needs to access common footage from central storage.

Current scenario:
we use Sony Vegas9.0 software to edit in all PCs.

We have a storage(2TB 7200rpm disk)connected via Firewire cable to Edit machine 1.
all other 5 machines access this storage via Gigabit Ethernet cable through the local network.

We edit DV and HDV footage.

At the moment the work-flow is pretty decent, but not always. Particularly when two computers are accessing HD footage from the same HDD.

So we need to setup an ideal environment for shared storage and multiple access reliably and effectively.

We have looked into EditShare, professional shared storage solutions which is beyond our budget.

Could anyone please help us with am affordable and effective solution for both onsite and mobile shared storage.
And ofcourse redundancy is also quite crucial.

We are based in Singapore.

Thank you.
hope to hear from someone soon.

EditShare is an excellent and affordable solution for your 6 Sony Vegas PC's. Other excellent companies, like Studio Network Solutions will have similar prices to EditShare. You can contact Apace Systems, to discuss a less expensive solution.

My system won't work with PC's.

Thanks Bob! for your quick reply.
Couldn't find a dealer for the Apace systems you recommended though.(their website contact page was not working...)
Is it only US based?

I believe you are using Mac platform.
