(Burbank, California--November 4, 2009) JMR Electronics, Inc., the leading value provider of scalable storage systems for video and data intensive applications, will be showcasing their new BlueStor™Digital Rapids and RED Video Storage Servers and RAID Storage Systems at HD Expo - Createasphere on Wednesday, Nov. 4th and Thursday, Nov. 5th at the Burbank Marriott in Burbank, Calif.

JMR Electronics' display is located at Stand # 105.

Among the latest BlueStor video storage offerings will be a 4U rackmount Digital Rapids Video Server, an all-in-one high performance encoding/transcoding solution ideal for both standard and high-definition projects. The system, a 16-bay RAID integrated with a Digital Rapids' StreamZHD Encoder, can capture HD or SD video in its native format, or convert it in hardware during capture from HD to SD, SD to HD, or between HD resolutions and frame rates. StreamZHD can capture from live or tape-based sources to uncompressed files, or encode directly to target formats at up to 1920x1080 resolution in real time.

For the RED camera user, JMR's BlueStor RED Video Storage Server, a 4U rackmount 16-bay RAID system, offers extremely high performance, robust reliability coupled with a wide variety ingest and output features, making it ideal for both post production and broadcast store-n-forward, streaming and DVR/DVTR replacement editing applications. The system will be demonstrated as an ingest server running Assimilate SCRATCH software, and features: dual quad core processors; dual 3Gb/s internal SAS expanders; dual PCIe RAID controllers; redundant hot swap power supplies and fans; a 19-in-1 card reader; Blu-ray writer; an nVIDIA Quadro FX5600 SDI graphics card; 24GB of DDR3 ECC memory; USB, Firewire, dual GigE and an E-SATA storage ports. The SAS/SATA Video Storage Server can scale up to 32 TB using the latest generation 2 TB disk drives.

The BlueStor FibreStream™, an extreme performance Fibre Channel RAID system from JMR, will also be on display at Stand 105. When added to an existing Storage Area Network (SAN), the FibreStream solution becomes a highly scalable and reliable system that can be configured for RAID levels 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, 10, 40, 50 or 60. BlueStor FibreStream features a built-in 4-port 4Gb FC switch, and is the highest performance per dollar storage system available on the market, with an average measured read speed of 1,317.286 MB/sec and an average measured write speed of 756.165 MB/sec.

Lastly, the JMR BlueStor EXTN-8, a PCIe Bus Extender with a built-in 16-bay SAS/SATA hot-swap JBOD/RAID housed in a common 3U rackmount chassis, is another high-performance storage system available for attendees to preview. The EXTN-8 is a highly functional and scalable unit which includes the added benefit of a JBOD/RAID storage subsystem in the same chassis, capable of housing up to 32TB of SATA storage, and expandable to 4PB (4,000TB).

JMR's affordable and fault-tolerant storage solutions are based on JMR's PeSAN™ (PCIe Storage Attached Network) technology. JMR's 16-bay BlueStor PeSAN RAID systems were developed to be the ultimate in high-performance Direct Attached Storage or Networked Attached Storage for a wide range of video applications like content creation, VOD, video editing and 2K/4K Digital Intermediate (DI) film applications requiring extremely high sustained throughput and reliability - making it ideal for encoding, multi-stream SD/HD real-time editing, and 2K DI applications. For collaborative or multi-stream SD/HD and 2K/4K DI workflows requiring even higher performance and scalable storage, BlueStor PeSAN powered RAIDs can achieve up to 4,000 MB/s and be expanded to over 4,000 TB using the current JMR PeSAN technology.
