GB Labs will showcase its FastNAS storage systems with a new 25 GbE connectivity at NAB Show New York 2019, taking place at the Jacob Javits Center from 16-17 October.
The 25 GbE FastNAS advances, designed by GB Labs, can use existing LC fiber channel cabling infrastructures, which means that no additional devices or technologies are required, nor is it necessary to rebuild an infrastructure. The FastNAS range is now shipping in 25 GbE configurations, with optional dual-25 GbE port versions available for most models. Media production storage systems are available in FastNAS F-8 Nitro Studio; FastNAS F-8 Nitro; FastNAS F-16; FastNAS F-16 Nitro and FastNAS F-16 Nitro MAX configurations.
GB Labs CEO-CTO Dominic Harland said, “The current fiber link standard is approximately 10 GbE. To fully exploit the speed and power of our FastNAS storage system, we have developed connectivity that delivers a proven 2.3 GB/s from server to desktop, which is more than enough to handle 4K workflows
GB Labs will also feature Dynamic Bandwidth Control, a proprietary process that enables system clients to prioritize the use and capacity of available bandwidth. Also on show, is the Mosaic automatic asset organizer and Analytics Centre. Mosaic integrates AI tagging to automatically scan inbuilt metadata to identify and categorize content without having to manually enter metadata.
