Burbank, CA (November 21, 2003)–DMT Rentals is launching the DMT 3-In-1 Workstation, a multi-platform environment which includes Nuendo, Pro Tools and Pyramix (both PCM- and DSD/SACD-capable). Any of the three applications can be configured as the primary DAW with the other pair as specialized support.
“DMT is the only rental company in the United States to offer Merging Technologies’ Pyramix, Steinberg’s Nuendo and Digidesign’s Pro Tools for Windows,” offers company president Doug Botnick. “And, because we have bundled the applications into one convenient, self-contained workstation, interchange is seamless and easy.” Direct Stream Digital/DSD is fully implemented via Pyramix, as well as 24-bit Linear PCM up to 192 kHz.
In typical use a project would be recorded on one DAW platform, with editing, processing, mixing or mastering performed on one or two of the other platforms. High-speed networking, file acquisition and file sharing are easily achieved via Gigabit Ethernet. “The master PC offers 2.8 GHz Dual-Xeon processing, along with a full Terabyte ATA IDE removable hard-drive RAID,” explains DMT operations manager, Jayce Murphy. “This powerful combination of processing and storage capacity will likely never reach full capacity.”
A single-rack unit Medea houses a 750 Gigabyte RAID that offers an additional large-capacity and portable storage option. The configuration includes Windows XP Professional, Firewire, LVD160 SCSI receiver and external connections, plus a CD/DVD-RW drive. “The DMT 3-In-1 Workstation’s outstanding processing power also allows back-ups while recording,” Murphy states. “And a full line of VST and TDM plug-ins is included for all three platforms, making it particularly easy for our clients to move projects and files between their workstation and ours.” Powerful DMT SMALL-FORM Workstations are offered as networked or stand-alone companions to the DMT 3-In-1 Workstation.
