DVC and Drastic Select Ciprico

MINNEAPOLIS -- Ciprico, Inc. (NASDAQ: CPCI), a leading provider of intelligent storage software, solutions and appliances, has been selected by Drastic Technologies and Digitalvideo Computing (DVC) to provide its MediaVault 4210 storage array for DVCs ClipRecorder XTreme 2K Digital Disk Recorder and workstation. The selection has resulted in an OEM agreement with the two companies, as Digitalvideo Computing serves as Drastic’s manufacturing representative and master distributor in Europe.

Ciprico’s dual channel, 4 GB Fibre Channel 4210 RAID array will provide high performance and high capacity storage for DVC’s flagship ClipRecorder workstation, targeted at HD and 2K and 4K Digital Intermediate applications.

DVC’s ClipRecorder is based on Drastic’s software technology.

Drastic’s software provides Digital Disk Recorder (DDR) functionality for DVC’s ClipRecorder as well as Drastic’s third generation "New Titans" Series DDRs. The production proven software provides direct integration with VTR serial RS-422, server serial protocols and universal network interfaces. These real world interfaces, along with multi headed editing, media management and a complete software media translation system, provide seamless access to the most complete digital intermediate interface available.

“Ciprico’s MediaVault 4210 arrays deliver industry leading bandwidth, capacity and performance capable of handling Drastic’s most demanding applications,” said James Brooks, VVW Development Manager for Drastic Technologies.” The high-performance, interoperability and throughput capabilities enabled by Ciprico’s MediaVault are crucial for uncompressed SD, HD, 2K and 4K film resolution capture, as well as delivery. This in effect not only benefits Drastic, but also our European partner, Digitalvideo Computing, and their ClipRecorder workstation.”
