Netstor PCIe Storage in support of 8K Video Editing Workflow

As two Netstor PCI Express 3.0 storage units NS780S-G3 are connected to the same Mac Pro 2019, the following connection can be implemented to get the doubled capacity, the doubled performance, and the highest RAID level data protection for up to 5000 MB/s between storages and Mac Pro 2019 in favor of the 8K (7680×4320) video editing and post production.

Equipment Requirement:
。 Two units of PCIe Gen3 NS780S-G3 storage
(Can be two of any Netstor’s PCIe interface storages) 。 One tower Mac Pro 2019
(Can be any workstation with PCIe 3.0 slots)

By the above powerful and effective solution, it will make 8K video production feasible for more digital content creators. The combination of Netstor unit and Mac Pro 2019 does truly enable editing workflows to play back at 7680×4320 resolution digital content files. Additionally, with Mac’s internal AMD Radeon Pro Vega II graphics processors, the real-time Ultra HD editing can effortlessly be achieved via the implementation of dual ultra high-speed PCI Express 3.0 NS780S-G3 desktop storages.

Furthermore, through the application, it surely empowers the digital content creators to receive the performance gain; real-time encoding is even possible by the seamless integration of Netstor unit working with professional software such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, and many more in favor of the 8K editing workflows.
