IBC 2016: Atomos and G-Technology team up to improve your on-set storage

IBC 2016: Atomos and G-Technology team up to improve your on-set storage

The show’s not officially open yet and G-Technology and Atomos have already managed to get our storage team in a tizzy by teaming up to improve on-set storage for us all. 

The result of their collaboration is the Atomos Master Caddy by G-Technology, a new range of ev series-comptible, high performance solid state drives, described it thusly in the official blurb:

“With SSD configurations achieving transfer rates surpassing 500 MB/s (ideal for 4K, HDR and other demanding content formats), the Atomos Master Caddy inserts directly into any Atomos-compatible recorder. The caddy then slides into the ev Series Reader Atomos Master Caddy Edition, which slips into any G-DOCK ev or ev Series Bay Adapter. The Atomos Master Caddy by G-Technology makes quick, cable-free work of transferring footage into main project storage, creating backups, and quickly turning around formatted media.”

Master Caddy drives


The Master Caddy comes in two flavours: Master Caddy 4K and Master Caddy HD. The Master Caddy 4K boasts read speeds of up to 540MBps and write speeds of up to 520MBps. It’s available in 256GB, 512GB and 1TB capacities. The Master Caddy HD is a 7200RPM HDD that tops out at 136MBps, and is only available in 1TB capacity. Both versions support drive labels and QR code labels.

Master Caddy readers

However, the really interesting bit is that these can be used in the G-DOCK and ev Series G-SPEED RAIDs to ingest, edit, duplicate and distribute data straight from RED Mini-Mag and, now, Atomos media, meaning that Master Caddy drives will slot right into your existing storage workflow with a bit of help from an adaptor.

The ex Series Reader Master Caddy Edition is ev Series compatible (though not with the ev All Terrain Case). It’s bus powered, and uses USB-C (Gen 2) connectivity, though you get USB-C to USB-C and USB-C to USB 3.0 cables included in the box, so is backwards compatible with earlier USB standards.

As well as letting you transfer your footage to any ev-compatible storage, the reader can be used as a standalone device to review, log and back up footage.


There is also an ev Series Reader CFast 2.0 Edition, which is designed to simplify and optimise your 4K capture workflow. It works with all CFast 2.0 media and is compatible with G-SPEED Shuttle, G-SPEED Speed XL (with an ev bay adaptor), G-DOCK ev Thunderbolt, ev All Terrain Case and G-DOCK Solo.

The ev Series Reader CFast 2.0 Edition is bus powered and uses USB 3.0 connectivity.

All these products will be available imminently from Jigsaw24. For more on the latest IBC releases, take a look at our roundup post, give us a call on 03332 409 306, email broadcast@Jigsaw24.com or pop your details in the form below.

3-2-1 backup solutions for photographers

3-2-1 backup solutions for photographers

To mitigate against the ever-present threat of disk failure, a corrupted card or accidental deletion, backing up should be a major concern for any professional shooting images and video. Luckily, there’s a whole array of products that can help you follow the golden rule: always have three copies of your data, on two types of media and keep one backup copy offsite.

Backing up in the field

It’s best to ingest dailies and rushes as soon as possible after a shoot, then start making multiple copies straight away. You can ingest and duplicate straight on to mobile drives – we recommend a ruggedised one (i.e. one that’s got at least some drop and shock protection) like the G-DRIVE ev RaW Rugged 1TB hard drive. If you find yourself working in a particularly exotic location where water, sand and dust pose a threat to your backup copies, then choose drives with the added protection of an all terrain case.

Even the most rugged and reliable mobile drives can still fail, so a nifty way to make two simultaneous copies to disks is by using a RAID, and for backups in the field there’s nothing better than the Rugged RAID from LaCie. It’s even bus-powered over Thunderbolt too, so there’s no need to lug around an external power supply with you.


Backing up in the studio

Depending on your field backup strategy, you might want to make additional copies when you’ve back in the studio. If you’ve backed up onto G-DRIVE ev modules then you can drop the mobile drives straight onto a RAID-protected storage array like the G-SPEED Shuttle XL ev, which adds further protection for your data against disk failures. If you only need one additional copy, you could drop backups on to a straightforward external drive. While there’s no redundancy built in should the drive fail, this is a popular fuss-free solution, and with external drives now sporting capacities of up to 10TB you get plenty of bytes for your buck. Take a look at our range of external drives here.

Backing up to other types of media


Maxing out internal storage, cards and drives can get expensive, especially if you’re keeping multiple copies of your data. Offloading to lower cost media like LTO tapes or centralised NAS storage is a good strategy once you have an initial copy sorted. While it takes longer to recover data from tape than from other media, the cost per TB is exceptionally low and you don’t even need a centralised LTO tape library to benefit. The M-TAPE Thunderbolt Tape Drive is direct-attach over Thunderbolt, and this bundle comes with YoYotta software to index, backup, archive and restore all your camera ingests and track assets from production to post.

NAB 2016: G-Technology offers new NAS solution for content creators

NAB 2016: G-Technology offers new NAS solution for content creators

New 12-bay G-RACK 12 enables teams of creative professionals to streamline media and entertainment workflows with the reliability, scalability, and studio-friendly technology you’d expect from the trusted G-Technology brand.


G-Technology, a trusted premium storage solutions provider, today announced its new G-RACK 12 network attached storage (NAS) solution – its first NAS-based device that enhances its award-winning product portfolio for content creation professionals worldwide. This along with a sneak peek of new technology demonstrations and the latest G-Technology products will be on display at NAB, April 18-21, in Las Vegas, Booth SL6005.

“From our flexible Evolution Series and high-capacity, high-performance portable G-SPEED Shuttle XL to our new 12-bay G-RACK 12 NAS solution, G-Technology offers one of the broadest storage portfolios for virtually any audio, video or content creation workflow,” said Mike Williams, vice president of marketing, G-Technology. “Our goal is to continue to optimize efficiencies in pre- and post- production workflows, so whether you’re working on a TV commercial, a corporate video, or major motion picture, we can help you through the most demanding production environments, while delivering capacity, reliability, performance and style.”

The G-RACK 12 streamlines demanding media and entertainment video workflows, including 4K and above resolution, with a scalable 12-bay server offering capacities up to 120TB. Its reliability, high-performance, and centralized storage capabilities are perfect for small-to-medium size post-production houses, TV/broadcast studios, ad agencies, and in-house creative departments using Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer or other creative applications. An optional expansion chassis is available for expanding up to another 120TB of storage. The G-RACK 12 is the ideal storage solution for collaboration, utilizing quad 10-gigabit Ethernet connections for high-speed data transfers, saving both time and money.

“The G-RACK 12’s wickedly fast read/write speeds make it an unparalleled NAS option for professional environments, and its intuitive OS server interface allows us to get our entire department working off the G-RACK the same morning we unboxed it, all without hiring a specialist,” said Ted Pacult, post production supervisor for Documentary Now.

The G-RACK 12 incorporates a G-Technology-developed NAS operating system with BTRfs file system, with an easy-to-use graphical interface, removing the complexity of typical NAS administrative systems. The 12-bay, expandable units incorporate enterprise hard drives and are available in 48TB, 72TB, 96TB, and 120TB storage capacities.

“RED Studios Hollywood is constantly looking for the latest storage innovations, such as the G-RACK 12,” stated Jarred Land, president of RED Digital Cinema. “The 10-gigabit network speeds and ability to work within our Adobe, Final Cut Pro, and Avid ecosystems makes our G-RACK 12 an extremely valuable asset.”

G-RACK 12 pricing varies depending on capacity and configuration. You can pre-order G-RACK here.

Thanks for making our So Ho Ho Soiree such a great night!

Thanks for making our So Ho Ho Soiree such a great night!

On Thursday 10th December we transformed our Soho service and customer experience centre into a Christmas wonderland complete with mulled wine, hog roasts, chocolate fountains and our best selection of Christmas jumpers for our So Ho Ho Soiree. We welcomed plenty of vendors and customers to celebrate with us, and boy did we have a good evening!

With a HP-sponsored Harry Potter themed room, more cocktails than you could shake a wand at, a magician and a candy floss machine, we hope our guests had a great night. So, on behalf of everyone at Jigsaw24, we wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for coming round to celebrate with us, and a special thank you to G-Technology, HP, Avid, GB Labs and Wacom for sponsoring our event!

Whether you came along or you missed it, here are just a few highlights from the evening. Remember, if you’d like to attend any of our events in the future, keep an eye on our events page for more information!


As guests arrived, they were handed a copy of our own Jigsaw24 Marauders Map before making their way through to our welcome drinks reception where mulled wine, prosecco and mince pies were on offer. The rest of the ground floor played host to a cocktail bar serving appropriately themed Christmas cocktails, a DJ and a hog roast.


Upstairs, our boardroom (also known as Nonsuch) was decked out with a chocolate fountain, candy floss machine and another cocktail bar – this time serving Harry Potter themed cocktails (the ‘He Who Must Not Be Named’ being our favourite).



We also had a photo booth available for a bit of light tomfoolery and plenty of Harry Potter sweet treats including chocolate frogs and Bertie Botts Every Flavour Beans.

Buyers’ Guide: Content management and storage

Buyers’ Guide: Content management and storage

The say cleanliness is next to godliness, but we’d make a strong case for organisation being slightly closer. If you don’t have your fonts managed and your assets organised and backed up, you’re not going to be able to work efficiently, repurpose content and – most importantly – leave on time. Yes, we know it’s not the most exciting thing to read about, but getting your content management workflow together now will save you time for years to come.

The quick fix (for when there’s only a couple of you, and you don’t produce that much)

Okay, so let’s say you have a pretty speedy MacBook Pro. Get yourself a nice dependable desktop drive like a G-Technology G-DRIVE, then set up Time Machine for backup locally. To avoid any unwelcome data loss, we’d recommend getting some RAID storage – if your MacBook Pro has Thunderbolt 2, try making the most of it with a high-speed PROMISE Pegasus R4 array.

If you need to work together, the Synology Diskstation DS414 is a feature-rich 4-bay NAS specifically designed for growing businesses to effectively manage, protect, and share data. You can even add Extensis Portfolio Studio for better asset management and Suitcase Fusion to keep your fonts in order.

The neat freak (for when you’ve got a team to support)

If you’re working in a range of media we always recommend a capable iMac with Universal Type Server and Portfolio Studio to keep your files in check and easy for the team to access.

If you need extra local storage or want to run backups to a local drive, try something spacious like this 8TB G-RAID, while euroNAS’s 16TB, 16-bay 3U network server storage solution is a sterling contribution to your server room, and you can manage your backups with Archiware’s P5 software which can support two servers or a tape library. (Here’s the tape library we’d recommend, as it’s cheaper than high speed online or nearline storage for the long run.)

The archivist (for when you need big storage for big files and bigger archives)

If you’re churning out high volumes of multimedia files on something like this and a high speed Thunderbolt 2 RAID array, then you’ll need to beef up. Maximise your font management capabilities by upgrading to the Enterprise versions of your Universal Type Server and Portfolio asset management solutions. If you’re after something more video-specific, it’s well worth taking a look at axle Video’s solutions.

If you want to be sure all your data is backed up, opt for our manual backup service, Backup24, in which our team ensure your data is backed up to our Tier 2+ data centre. And to handle your NAS needs, the GB Labs Space range offer extremely fast large capacity shared storage for digital content creation.

Take control of content with MatrixCMS

By connecting up your PIM and CMS systems to create a single version of the truth for all work and enabling seamless cloud-based sharing of drafts and revisions, MatrixCMS makes it easier to stay on top of your assets. MatrixCMS provides a centralised store for all digital media, enabling an organisation to collate, manage and distribute their investment across the entire company. Arrange an online demo here (you have to scroll down to the bottom).
