Capturing video on set or in a mobile production truck can be challenging. Designed for high-speed video capture in a moving vehicle, Quantum’s R-Series makes the process less stressful.

During production, vast amounts of video is generated, but capturing, processing, and working with the footage requires a shared storage system.

As each camera captures several terabytes of video, R-Series simplifies ingest with unique features that automate the process of offloading video to Quantum’s StorNext shared storage environment.
To address the challenges of sharing, protecting, preserving and processing massive volumes of video, Quantum's R-Series integrates with Quantum's StorNext-based scale-out storage portfolio. StorNext environments provide shared data access in a unified global namespace across multiple tiers of workflow-optimized storage. The combination of StorNext and the R-Series delivers substantial efficiencies.

Combined with Quantum's StorNext high-performance parallel file system, R-Series products enable a complete production workflow with unique features:

• Small Form Factor Chassis Design: Minimizes storage space, making it ideal to bring on set or into mobile production truck environments where space is a premium
• Magazine Carrier: Quantum R-Series incorporates a removable magazine design to enable efficient transport of video from the set or production vehicle to the post-production or broadcast facility
• Ruggedized unit can operate in a broad range of environmental conditions - tough environments are the ideal habitats for the ruggedized, removable storage
• RAID Support: Ensures high performance and reliability, including RAID 5 or RAID 6
• Automated Ingest: Quantum leverages StorNext® FlexSync™ to simplify data ingest

R-series was designed for any situation where capturing large amounts of video in a rugged environment is needed. The storage is easily removable, so users can quickly upload what was captured in the field to a Quantum StorNext shared storage environment and start working on it.
