hi,

In the system req. for the mojito 4k there is a line : storage external.

How many and which diskstypes are being used?

What are the minimum requirements for storage /playback for the mojito 4k.
For 4K 60fps

does the upgrade of the GTX680 to a GTX 770 /780, alter the requirements of the CPU's ?

with kind regards,

Richard Blezer

These things will affect how your host computer and software (such as Premiere Pro) will behave, more than the Matrox gear which only displays the output of a true video signal. (Give or take 'Max' encoding.)

I don't do 4k work myself, but I should think that some sort of external RAID storage device would be a given.

Thanks andrew, but I already know this. The piont is that 4K Video requires more throughput fron the system. Matrox/adobe need 2, 8core Xeon CPU's on a C600 intel chipset, to playback 4K @ 59.95 FPS.!!

So my question with regards to storage (in- or external) is not that far fetched.

Again, thanks for stating the obvious. But I wanted to know, exactly which storage configuration did matrox use in the system requirements. As the system Req. don't state this. I am hoping just a bunch of 7200RPM HDD's, but I'm afraid that SAS disk are nessesary.

Hi Richard,

I really didn't want to be going in to calculating sustained transfer speed requirements for 4k files as, again, I have no reference point.

Might be best to wait for one of the regular support staff to answer your questions during Canadian business hours.

Hi Andrew ,

I did some research and found this:

Max data rate

4k max 960mbps / 120 Mb /s

Hd 1920/1080 25 max 28mbps / 3,5 Mb/s

So IMHO just 2 Sara drives in stripes stab should be able to handle the datarate.
