Editing fast, editing accurately – editing the Tour de France. Made possible with MovieRecorder. Timeline TV – UK relied on Softron’s for the entire Tour deFrance project because it was perfect for FCPX in recording a growing file that can be accessed within seconds.
Vsquared TV had four edit suites with high-end Mac Pros linked to a 70TB SAN where all of the media was stored. Softron Movie Recorder was running on two Mac Pros which gave Vsquared TV up to 8 channels of HD recording. Each edit suite had access to a daily growing file of the incoming feed from France and was connected to the SAN via a dual 4GB fibre link using the SANLink2. Each edit suite had 12TB of local Thunderbolt 2 storage with a Pegasus2 R6 drive configured in RAID 5 which was used to hold the working daily FCPX library, as well as an archive of previous days’ libraries.
