    Default Giga64-2800+ audio/video non-linear editing hardw

    Hi

    I'm just starting out in the business of making non-linear editing
    hardware. I've designed and built a system called the Giga64-2800+ and I'm
    looking for some professional opinions on the specifications and
    whether it is good value for money.

    The URI for info about it is http://cabbagepromotions.info/hardware

    I'm not trying to advertise my product here, and I don't expect anyone
    to consider purchasing it. I just want some honest opinions so I know
    whether to continue in this business or not.

    Thanks in advance

    The cabbage

    This is a joke, right? I mean, it's a funny old name for a video editing rig.

    Yeah... I was thinking it might not be the best of names...

    Any suggestions?

    Okay, a bit more constructive:

    4x 36GB internal 10000rpm HDDs configured in Serial ATA RAID
    That's risky for video editing. I assume they'll be stripped (no point in mirroring as the drives are so small), and this would be an ENORMOUS risk for an editor. One drive fails and you loose all your projects - and the chances one fails are 4x more likely than non-raid.

    Additionally, the performance gains wouldn't be worth the risk

    Your software is a little confused too... best to offer a package rather than a paragraph of options...

    System builders often borrow names from the hardware or nature IMHO. For example the name of the mobo or the processor speed. Also good to suffix with a code - looks like you have a whole range!

    I was actually planning on RAID-5 (striped + parity) -- I guess I should mention that in the blurb...

    Thanks for that, I'll re-organise it a bit to provide a package or maybe a few different packages to choose from.

    How about something like Giga64 for the name?

    Or Giga64-2800+ to indicate the processor speed, maybe?
