I have been editing on a M100i V8 forever. Yes it's time to upgrade.

The easy part is knowing I need to be HD & SD flexable...but here's the hard part:

I would love to be able to have the ability to edit on the same project while roaming between two different location offices. Portable Raid system?

That's a difficult one. If you're looking for a portable solution then I would look at the G-Tech G-Raid2 or G-Raid mini using Firewire 800. You'll be limited to Compressed HD as you will not be able to achieve uncompressed HD with firewire drives.

...note even compressed HD via firewire 800 will still be "iffy" and like Scott said forget uncompressed.

What about the S2VR HD from CalDigit? If both locations have one, the drives themselves are very easy to swap in and out.

I've only looked at the HDPro. Great drive but it sounds like its more than what you're looking for.

Just thought I would chime in. I just received an e-mail this morning from David C., Media 100 Product Manager indicating the HDPro has been validated with Media 100.

In the e-mail excerpt to CalDigit David said:

"Things are going well and we will approve these drives (HDPro) with Media 100 and Tiger. We will update our website with information too".

Once Media 100 supports Leopard, CalDigit fully supports Leopard with the HDPro.

If you have 2 passive 4 lane 1 port cards, you can go between 2 systems, sneaker net style with our HDPro, True Hardware RAID product. One card comes with each complete CalDigit HDPro product, and additional card can be purchased for $299.00 MSRP. With this setup you can easily edit Uncompressed 10 bit 1080/60i 4:4:4:4

Read more about the HDPro here:
