XDT Pty. Ltd., a developer of advanced software-based solutions for digital film, is showcasing catapult bridge at NAB 2009. This new addition to the catapult family of products, not available, provides NFS and CIFS client access to frame sequences stored on any catapult system.
Catapult's frame sequence scheduling and prioritizing is maintained while catapult bridge is accessing files, allowing high-throughput streaming frame access to operate concurrently with high-IOPS random access. A low-latency (less than 50 microsecond), non-volatile cache with high IOPS (over 120,000 random read/write), provides concurrent access operations for NFS and CIFS clients at the level of a high-end SAN, says a representative.
