I am wandering what would be the best harddrive for video playback. (audiopost)
I have installed 2 Seagate Barracuda 1 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache Drives ST1000DM003 for audio, but for video I’m not sure what to use.
Can I continue with these Seagates for video? (seperate ones)
I’ve also seen the WD 1 TB Black 7200 rpm - Serial ATA 6.0Gb/s…usefull for video??
Anyway I want to be able to play at least 1080 (and 2K) video smooth. (AVC HD, the different ProRes, the different DVC, uncompressed and AVID DNxHD codecs).
I realise there could be a seperate video playback card issue and that leads me to the possible purchase of a Decklink Studio 4K or something from AJA.
ps. the past years I’ve been using an Intensity Pro…still working in the old machine.
Thx in advance
