We however tried to cut down costs further by Installing everything on an assembled server - the specs are
Avid DS Nitris v11 on Dual Xeon E5649/ Intel S5520SC Board/
48GB RAM/ 60GB x 2 Intel SSD/
Quadro 5000 /
8TB Storage on RAID 6/
Cinetal Broadcast monitor
We even eliminated the Aja-Kona 3G card.
Output to the Broadcast Monitor is routed through Quadro 5000.
PROBLEM :- The HD output playback is not smooth & strobes a lot (on all panning shots); also field flickers are noticed frequently.
Was it a mistake to get Avid DS Nitris 11 installed onto a server ? Should we go back and have a separate Workstation for the Nitris and a separate SAS for the Media ?
