Ciphertex to Unveil CX-RANGER-AV Series At Createasphere’s Entertainment Technology Expo
At Createasphere’s Entertainment Technology Expo, which has opened and continues thru November 3, Ciphertex Data Security will unveil the all-new CX-RANGER-AV and CX-RANGER-AVX portable hardware-encrypted RAID solutions targeted at Media and Entertainment Industries. The CX-RANGER-AV Series is designed to offer highly secure content storage of video assets from on-set through post production and delivery to distribution.
A global provider of powerful and affordable data-security products with a proven record of support for government, military and forensic applications, Ciphertex has now developed a line specifically designed for the content-creation industry. The M&E community has been plagued by stolen or duplicated video footage while in transport. The CX-RANGER-AV Series eliminates this risk with key based hardware-encryption technology that does not hamper performance.
Configured for portable mobile environments, and fully compatible with OS X, Windows and Linux , the CX-RANGER-AV Series offers three interface options, including FireWire 800, eSATA, or USB 3.0, via a swappable user I/O. The CX-RANGER-AV comes with five 2.5-inch drives with up to 5 TB of storage capacity, and the CX-RANGER-AVX with five 3.5-inch drives and up to 15 TB of storage. With both products, the data throughout is unaffected by the encryption process and will sustain AV playback and transfer rates well over 200 MB/sec with the eSATA interface which comes standard.
Contemporary media production requires enhanced digital-data capacities, increased data mobility and ultra-secure asset protection.
The compact RAID systems are bundled with award-winning NovaBACKUP® data-protection software and can be configured to RAID levels 0 through 5; the hot-swappable drives will accommodate enhanced-capacity sizes as they become available.
Primary End-user Features:
Transparent data security for all popular operating systems using AES-256 hardware encryption.
Modular, expandable RAID system for raw-format HD streaming video and multitrack audio media.
Compatible with Avid Media Composer, Avid Pro Tools, Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premier Pro and other popular NLE systems.
