Bright Launches BrightDrive TxP

"Bright Systems will be launching BrightDrive TxP, a new secure, high speed, high capacity portable drive system, at IBC 2007.

With the ability to hold and offload data at speeds up to 20 times greater than standard Firewire and USB, BrightDrive TxP brings major cost savings to all digital workflows involving large volumes of data, by dramatically cutting media transfer times.

BrightDrive TxP uses Bright Systems’ BrightDrive advanced disk recording technology to provide significant advantages over film, tape, Firewire and USB drives. Users are able to transfer media at real-time 2k, or 300 MB per second, enabling them, for example, to back off or upload a 2-hour motion picture in approximately 2 hours instead of the normal laboriously long times currently required.

In addition to offering fast download speeds, BrightDrive TxP uses Bright’s Data Integrity technology to perform automatic checking and verification of the data set at the final destination to ensure end-to-end integrity. It also minimizes time spent ‘transporting’ data between disparate systems when ingesting and offloading.

Each BrightDrive TxP chassis can hold 4 transportable drive capsules each with a 1.5 terabyte capacity, enabling users to ingest or offload up to 2 full-length motion pictures at a time. The system has a compact, high-tech construction with the drives specifically designed to ensure media can be shipped in a safe and secure environment between remote locations."
