OWC’s Tim Standing Will Speak During SMPTE Event

OWC Vice President of Software serving as guest speaker for webcast on August 2nd.

Woodstock, IL – July 31, 2018 OWC®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced that Tim Standing will be the guest speaker for the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers’ (SMPTE) Technology Webcast on Thursday, August 2nd at 1:00 PM EDT. His topic will be “Why speed is not the most important thing to look for in a RAID system.”


During the session, Tim will provide information to assist users in choosing a fast and reliable RAID system for media storage, one that is directly attached to their computer. He will describe RAID levels and for each, will describe where the file data is stored and what the “extra” disks are used for.


Additional discussion points will include: • Optimizations for getting the fastest performance from a RAID system • What to look out for and how to avoid common problems • How to improve the reliability of the disks used in a RAID system • Case studies illustrating how editors have lost important footage and how these disasters could have been avoided.


Tim will rely on his 20+ years of providing RAID solutions to explain how users can improve the reliability of disks used for RAID systems and much more. Webcasts are complimentary for SMPTE members. To register, visit: SMPTE Technology Webcast.
