Towering Shared Storage
Midi LTO is a new storage workflow concept. It’s a shared storage platform for HD editors and content creators. Plus, it’s an archiving device that delivers fast tape back up, deep data storage and incredibly fast file retrieval. For small studios and workgroups, it might be all the storage you need. Growing companies frequently adopt a shared editing platform for increased data speeds, a safer environment for their content and greater creativity among the team. Without a dedicated machine room or rackspace area, GB Labs’ tower-format Midi RAID storage solution is the perfect solution: fast, high capacity and secure, yet easily stowed under the desk.
Total Media Platform
Midi LTO adds a tape drive to its 8TB, 16TB, 24TB or 32TB RAID storage. Data can be archived and offloaded automatically: the included software intelligently tracks all files for fast retrieval and allows all network users to access data stored on centrally managed tapes. Archiving and media retrieval is simple using the built-in tools. The system can also integrate with many third party media asset management applications.
