The functionalities which are unique to the DDP are listed below.
We believe these are important for you. To understand these functionalities
please read the leaflets or brochure available below on this page.
Interested in uncompressed 4K and up using standard components and ethernet?
You need an ethernet SAN.
You need DDP.
Take a Trashcan Mac Pro with Black Magic Resolve software and 2x Sonnet Twin 10G/RJ45 boxes and connect this to a miniDDP48DF.
With 4K, 4096 x 3072 pixels and 10bit log colour resolution play back can be increased to 40 frames/sec equivalent to 1920 MByte/s. This bandwidth is even good for 6K @ 24 frames/sec.
For those using Windows: use a Black Magic recommended workstation and install a dual 10GbE Myricom optical or RJ45 card: same results.
For those using 4K/UHD and other compressed 4K formats on Mac one Sonnet box is sufficient.
Other features are real bandwidth limiting, real bandwidth doubling/tripling, IO Monitor, Nagios integration, high quality maintenance tools, Web based graphical user interface, Avid storage emulation, LDAP, AD and OD client integration.
DDP's are modular and scalable.
One of the base systems can be combined with HD or SSD packs and 1,10 and or 40 GbE Ethernet ports, SAS card for LTO and EX card(s) for DDP16EX(R) and DDP60EXR.
