G-Technology and Atomos Team for Storage

G-Technology has announced the launch of a suite of storage solutions in partnership with Atomos, designed to streamline the content creation process. It has also announced that its first NAS-based device, the G-RACK 12, is now available in EMEA.

The new solutions include the ev Series Reader, Atomos Master Caddy Edition, the Atomos Master Caddy 4K by G-Technology and the Atomos Master Caddy HD by G-Technology.

At IBC, the new ev Series Reader CFast 2.0 Edition, supporting fast CFast media cards for 4K video workflows for people using professional cameras such as BlackmagicCanon and Arri will also be launched.

Atomos Master Caddy 4K (SSD-based version) achieves transfer rates surpassing 500 MB/s – ideal for 4K, HDR and other demanding content formats. It inserts directly into any Atomos-compatible recorder. The Caddy then slides into the ev Series Reader Atomos Master Caddy Edition, which slips into any G-DOCK ev or G-SPEED Shuttle XL with ev Series Bay Adapters. This combination makes cable-free work of transferring footage into main project storage, creating backups and quickly turning around formatted media.

Using USB Type C connectivity, the ev Series Reader Atomos Master Caddy Edition is one of the latest accessories in the Evolution Series of high-performance, flexible storage solutions. Easily slipping the Atomos Master Caddy 4K or HD versions by G-Technology into the Caddy, users can transfer content quickly from the Atomos recorder into any ev Series-compatible or other G-Technology storage solution. When shooting on-the-go, it can be used as a standalone device to review, log, and backup footage.

In addition to the Atomos-compatible line, G-Technology is also releasing the CFast ev Series Reader and G-DRIVE ev RaW 2TB at IBC2016.

The G-RACK 12 offers centralised storage for small-to-medium size post-production houses, TV/broadcast studios, ad agencies and in-house creative departments. The G-RACK 12 made its debut at this year’s NAB show.

The 12-Bay server offers up to 120TB, integration with popular non-linear editing suites, the latest BTRfs file system for better data management and up to 500TB of usable storage with the addition of G-RACK EXP expansion chassis units.

G-RACK 12 incorporates a G-Technology-developed NAS operating system with the BTRfs file system, the SCST high-performance iSCSI engine, and an easy-to-use graphical interface that removes the complexity of typical NAS administrative systems. The 12-bay, expandable units incorporate enterprise-class hard drives and are available in 48TB, 72TB, 96TB, and 120TB storage capacities.

CFast ev Series Reader

The CFast ev Series Reader is a professional reader for CFast 2.0 media used by a variety of camera brands. Designed to simplify 4K video workflows, the ev Series Reader CFast 2.0 Edition can transfer content from the CFast 2.0 media onto any ev Series-compatible drive like the G-SPEED Shuttle XL with ev Series Bay Adapters, the G-SPEED Studio XL with ev Bay Adapters, the G-DOCK ev with Thunderbolt, and the ev All-Terrain Case. The reader also leverages high-performance USB 3.0 connectivity for fast footage transfers and backup on the go.

2TB G-DRIVE ev RaW Storage Module

Fitting into a backpack or camera bag, the G-DRIVE ev RaW is lightweight and when coupled with the protective bumper, can withstand a 1.5m drop. As part of the Evolution Series, it can either be used as a standalone device, or with the G-DOCK ev with Thunderbolt, the G-SPEED Shuttle XL with ev Bay Adapters or the G-SPEED Studio XL with ev Bay Adapters for ultra-fast transfers and editing. This rugged drive is ideal for anyone requiring on-the-go access to their personal and/or professional files, photos, videos, music and more.
