The highlight of the equipment being used is the HD EVS XT3, a hard disk drive array
that allows for instant replay without having to stop what's currently recording.
One of the best implementations of it we've seen so far is the Promise Pegasus R6, but at $2,000, that external hard drive array
is priced well beyond most people's budgets.
By compressing the raw, digitized x-ray A/D converter samples on the gantry and transferring compressed packets instead of raw samples to the disk drive array
in the image reconstruction PC, compression reduces both CT scanner bottlenecks at once.
Unlike a car, where it is easy to "tee" a second drive array
from the transmission to the wheels, a motorcycle is essentially 2-dimensional and requires complex mechanical transmission components to drive the front wheel, resulting in awkward front suspension members and frame elements, together with unorthodox styling.
A SAN is configured so that there is more than one copy of the information, so even if one drive or a drive array
fails, there is a standby copy of the information.
The disk drive array
business is growing at an impressive rate, but the environment is tough on manufacturers which do not secure a significant market share.
The drive array
capacity can be as large as 1.92 TB and supports RAID levels 0 or 1.
Taking a small example from the current technology available today, an individual armed with a high-speed hard drive array
, a laptop computer, and a few essential pieces of software has the full ability to ingest 5K and above video data, edit it, apply elaborate transitions and feature film quality visual effects, colour grade the footage, manipulate the audio, and output to industry recognised standards and deliverables all from the comfort of their home.
This is to connect an external drive array
to a server, which has a SCSI controller on the motherboard.
