BRIGHT SYSTEMS LAUNCHES PORTABLE HIGH-SPEED, HIGH-CAPACITY DRIVE
AMSTERDAM – Reno, NV’s Bright Systems (www.4bright.com)
launched the BrightDrive TxP at IBC, a new, secure, high-speed, high-capacity
portable drive system. The unit offers the ability to hold and offload data at
speeds up to 20x greater than standard FireWire and USB, dramatically cutting
media transfer times.
The BrightDrive TxP uses Bright Systems’ BrightDrive advanced disk recording
technology. Users are able to transfer media at realtime 2K, or 300 MB/seconds.
A two-hour motion picture can be backed up in approximately two hours.
Bright System’s Data Integrity technology performs automatic
checking and verification of the data set at the final destination to ensure
end-to-end integrity. It also minimizes time spent transporting data between
disparate systems when ingesting and offloading.
Each BrightDrive TxP chassis can hold four transportable drive capsules, each
with a 1.5 terabyte capacity. This allows users the opportunity to ingest or
offload up to two full-length motion pictures at a time. Bright Systems will begin shipping the
TxP this month.
