Arraid Products in Broadcast & Video

Computer and automated systems fill important roles in Radio and TV Broadcast. Arraid has helped a number of companies deal with storage related problems in their Video Post-Production systems.

Generally, these computer systems may be viewed as “fixed use” systems. They were designed and built to interface with specific equipment or to run specific application software. Over time, the application changes slowly and very little. As long as the computer system remains reliable and maintainable, there is no reason to upgrade the system or rehost the computer. Unfortunately, while the system's host computer and interfaces may remain reliable and maintainable, legacy storage products don't.

esp 1tAs with any mission critical system, where production depends on its proper operation, computer system availability is key. Missed production means lost revenue and potentially lost Customers. Support teams are constantly challenged to prevent failure and minimize downtime. Arraid products can help.

For these older computer systems, Arraid provides COTS storage emulation solutions, integrating ARRAIDs proprietary FPGA based solid state Flash Drive (AFD), it can extend the life of mission critical systems and help to insure optimum availability. For SASI/SCSI1/SCSI2 systems we have both JBOD chassis and drop in replacements unsing our solid state SCSI Flash Drive modules. For more current systems, Arraid can provide NAS and RAID storage modules to increase system capabilities and performance.
