Stupid question....
by Eric Santiago 7 months ago
I've been asked if remote access is better than having access to our file server at work. They want the graphics team to work from home. I have informed them that access to the file server is best. Bu
Re: Stupid question....

Yes, having local access will give you more performance than remote. If the IT team is setting up a VPN, I'd say let them go for it, there's not a reason not to. For opening and working on an AE proje
10 GBe config
by Don Alexander 8 months ago
We have recently added a 10 GBe network in the station. Results have been less than anticipated as the 8 Gb fiber network which was retired was significantly faster. I seem to recall (maybe ) a commen

It's far from conclusive, but the Aquantia NICs are what concern me. We (ProMAX) have had a ton of trouble with those. It's the same hardware chip that Bob mentioned in the Sonnet Solo and not to expe

I've spoken to clients very happy with these, I've also replaced a few. Performance-wise, depending on what drives you put in, you'll get what you need. Thunderbolt connectivity is cool, but a bit of

Hi All I'm setting up a NAS system in which I'll be working with 3 iMac Pros (or possibly 2 plus the new Mac Pro whenever it is released) running Nuke for VFX work on 4K ProRes444XQ video for a TV ser

Sustained video performance if you do 4 x SSDs is about 1000MB s. That's about 14 streams of ProRes 4K @ 560MB s. It should be no issue, but, what data rate are your specific files at Yeah, the 8 bay

by Zachary Maxwell 1 year ago
I originally posted this on the Synology forums, but I thought it might be better to post it here. I'm currently doing research on storage solutions for my company and was wondering if you can answer

Sure thing, also, check out Which NAS is best for your video team if you want to see a comparison of ProMAX vs QNAP. For starting out in shared storage MediaHub is a great option. Good luck with where

by Steve Remich 1 year ago
I've seen a lot of positive reviews of the QNAP TVS-872XT and was wondering if anyone has any experience with thoughts on the 6-bay model. I thought given our setup (explained below), the faster, cloc

Steve, I know a lot of video pro's have gone with QNAP Synology because the "premium video vendors" don't have fair pricing. We changed this at ProMAX a while back. We also launched the ProMAX MediaHu
Server or something
by Stephen Smith 2 years ago
I'm looking for the best option to connect 2 iMac Pro's together so we can edit off the same drive. I'm looking at the QNAP TVS-1282T3 unless it makes more sense to use or do something else. Any thoug
Re: Server or something
by Nathaniel Cooper 2 years ago
QNAP makes a good server at a low cost. Like with many technology options, compare it to the market from 5 or 10 years ago and it's twice the product at a forth of the cost. That said, the question is

FCP & Pro Apps Video All Dark
by Chris Armstrong 10 years ago
A couple of weeks ago I updated from 10.6.4 to 10.6.6 and installed all the various security and ProApp updates. Since then, all of my video and image files in the ProApps (FCP, DVDSP, etc) have had a

Apple changed the IRE settings in 10.6, but there shouldn't be a change from 10.6.4 to 10.6.6. The changes they did to the IRE settings can make a file look 'darker' on the screen, however it's actual
