Cache-A - Prime-Cache5 LTO5 Archive Appliance - CA-P5212

The Cache-A Prime-Cache5 LTO5 Archive Appliance was designed in the fashion of all Cache-A appliances: to provide a product that protects your content for the long term with an easy-to-use, network attached appliance with a small footprint. The Prime-Cache5 allows you to quickly offload content and archive complete projects in the edit suite. Because the Prime-Cache5 is networked, every workstation in the network can access it. The Prime-Cache5 has a built-in catalog that allows users to search by file name or metadata. It works standalone, or with applications like CatDV or Final Cut Server.
