DULCE SYSTEMS ANNOUNCES COMPATIBILITY OF
PRO RX AND PRO DQ STORAGE ARRAYS WITH
BLUEFISH444’S RANGE OF SD AND HD CAPTURE CARDS
Chatsworth, CA, April 9, 2008– Dulce Systems., a leading storage solutions provider for the content creation, broadcast and delivery markets, today announced the compatibility of its PRO RX and PRO DQ storage arrays with the Bluefish444 Dual link 4:4:4 and Single link 4:2:2 HD and SD capture cards.
Bluefish444’s line of 10-bit uncompressed RGB and YUV HD and SD I/O cards together with Symmetry, Bluefish444’s proprietary HD/SD DI acquisition and preview tool, gives facilities the ability to capture to 10 bit RGB, DPX, HD DPX and Cineon, 8 bit RGBA TARGA, QuickTime and AVI file formats via a simple intuitive interface at a fraction of the cost.
“Supporting DPX, HD DPX, Cineon and TARGA sequential file formats can be extremely intensive on storage systems. The Dulce arrays have the performance to handle these formats very well and come in capacities that will handle most modern 10 bit RGB DI workflows at HD and 2K resolutions”, stated Paul Cameron, Support Manager Application and Systems Engineering, for Bluefish444.
The new PRO RX is a 12 and 16 drive rackmount PCI-e storage solution. With capacities up to 16 TB, data rates of 800+MB/s in RAID 0, 750+MB/s in RAID 5 and 700+MB/s in double disk redundant RAID 6, the PRO RX allows for multiple streams of uncompressed video resolutions including 2K film. Additional storage expansion is available using the PRO EX Expander providing a total of 112 TB per PRO EX.
The Dulce Systems PRO DQ is the fastest in its class. An 8 TB PRO DQ performs up to 570 MB/s in RAID 3/5 protected mode or 460 MB/s in RAID 6. For higher data rates, the PRO DQ breaks the record at 660 MB/s in RAID 0. Its capacities range from 2 TB to 8 TB and additional storage can be provided using the PRO EX Expander option. The PRO DQ delivers multi-stream uncompressed HD, SD, DVCPRO HD, HDV, DV, and Apple’s ProRes 422 video resolutions. The PRO RX and PRO DQ hosts require a single PCI-e x8 slot in a Macintosh or Windows computer.
The Dulce and Bluefish444 combination offers unprecedented performance and affordable scalable storage to address a wide variety of film and broadcast video applications, up to full bandwidth 1080i 4:4:4 10 bit RGB Sequential file recording and playback.
“Our PRO RX and PRO DQ arrays and the Bluefish444 capture and playback products are a compelling combination for the post production community,” said Carmen Palacios, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Dulce Systems. “The real time performance achievable with the Pro arrays and the range of output formats available through Symmetry and the Bluefish444 cards make our technology partnership a real benefit to colorists and other professionals designing DI workflows. In addition, since the array includes the host controller card, an additional SCSI or Fibre channel card is not required, making this an extremely cost-effective solution.”
