Editing/Tape Archiving While on the Road Challenges?


The ArGest® Moble Editing units are self contained, portable solutions for editors, videographers, music production / front of house teams, photographers, and other creative professionals in the field that provide both disk storage (2TB to 16TB of SSD or 4TB to 8TB of HDD) with LTO-7, LTO-6 or LTO-5 tape archival / backup in an easy to use road warrior configuration.

These are highly portable and affordable packages that connect via SAS or Thunderbolt.


With sustained media ingest speeds of over 1GB/sec (SSD systems), 500MB/sec (HDD systems), LTO-7 write speeds at 322MB/sec+ (see more details on LTO-7 speed), LTO-6 write speeds of 180MB/sec (.64TB/hour), and LTO-5 archive write speeds of 140MB/sec (.5TB/hour), using your choice of BRU PE or BRU Server software (1 client edition included), the road is no longer a dangerous place for jobs generating large amounts of data.  No more stacks of Firewire drives or long FTP sessions.  The HBAs included in the ArGest® bundles include TOLIS Group provided drivers and firmware for the best achievable speed, with LTO-7 BRU is over the rated speed at 322MB/sec write speeds.
