Genesis RX Media-optimized Storage

Built with digital media applications in mind

The Genesis RX3 is an affordable media-optimized high-performance storage for video editing environments. The RX3 is an excellent choice for DPX and color finishing workflows as well as Adobe and Avid editing environments. This is a product that can drive multiple streams of 4K at 60 FPS. Your investment is protected and can be repurposed as you grow or develop the need for a 24x7 uptime facility. The RX3 offers the flexibility to use deliver block and file level content for the different needs of your workflow.

Multiple 8K DPX streams supporting over 18GB/Sec.

Challenges solved:

  • Perfect for the high performance (18Gb/sec) media editing requirements - 4K, 8K
  • State of the art software-defined converged storage for a great TCO
  • Great ROI with ability to change to your dynamic workflows due to increased resolution or growth of your organization

Key workflows perfect for the Genesis RX3:

  • DPX editing, QC, and color applications such as Resolve and Autodesk
  • Adobe, Avid, FCP - Support for extreme 4K and 8K
  • Excellent for VFX and graphics workflows

Used as both a SAN metadata controller and a RAID for small workgroups, or a block level RAID for extreme performance environments.

Additionally, it can expand without moving data to a traditional external MDC SAN setup. This allows smaller facilities to use a more cost-effective, reliable, expandable global file system, while giving them the freedom to expand without the effort of forklift upgrades or moving data after outgrowing a single Genesis.
