Now I have set up this crazy idea about how we might be able to handle 3 cameras and all the footage we are pulling off them each day.
My plan was to set up the 3 cameras, each with say 3 16GB cards and daisy chain them together to get the same TC on all 3.
Then I thought we might set up an equal amount of Mac Pro's with card readers and connect them all to an XServe RAID and just have an assistant offload the cards as they fill up.
Now! Does anyone see any problems with this workflow?
Will the Mac's be able to offload the footage off the cards fast enough?
I was thinking of just having folders on the RAID disk for each camera.
Should there be any problems with performance on the RAID when you have 3 Mac's writing to it all at once?
I'm not too savvy on the computer tech side so you have to excuse me if these questions are obvious.
Nothing's been decided, so I'm open to suggestions about changing the workflow.
