Ithaca, NY (December 7, 2005)–Glyph Technologies has strengthened its GT Series product line with the addition of its new GT 205, and Branford Marsalis, Grammy award-winning saxophonist, composer, producer and music label owner, is the first to receive one.
Positioned at the high-end of the GT Series, the GT 205 is a double-space rack enclosure with five bays, specifically designed for audio and video applications requiring multiple drives. On the left side of the rack, the GT 205 has four bays that can be configured with GT Key hot-swappable drives in capacities up to 500GB each, using Seagate 7,200 RPM hard drives exclusively. On the right side, the GT 205 has a SCSI/FireWire expansion bay that offers the option of AIT backup, a SCSI or FireWire hot-swap receiving bay, DVD-R/RW or CD-R/RW.
Branford Marsalis said of Glyph and the GT 205, “I’ve been relying on Glyph racks for years and they continue to perform beyond my expectations. The new GT-205 is the perfect configuration for my studio: a solution for recording, backup and archiving all in the same rack.”
The GT 205 includes a free GT 051 tabletop FireWire hot-swap receiver, allowing you to easily shuttle content to other workstations with GT Key hard drives. Other members of the GT Series include the GT 050 fixed-mount tabletop, the GT 103 single-space three-bay rack, the GT 060BR FireWire 800 hardware RAID, and the new GT 050Q (Quad Interface) with FireWire 800, FireWire 400, USB and eSATA ports.
All GT Series solutions are engineered to provide the highest level of reliability and performance. Enclosures have an internal power supply and a quiet fan, and tabletops are rack mountable with an optional rack kit. Glyph believes that Integrity, its FireWire hot-swap interface, provides greater reliability than existing hybrid ATA-to-FireWire products by allowing a drive to be removed from the enclosure while separating at the FireWire level. Focused on keeping your studio quiet, GT Series internal frames are constructed with sound-dampening metal to absorb drive vibration and reduce unwanted noise.
Backed by Glyph’s legendary service and technical support, GT Series enclosures are covered under warranty for three years. Hard drives come standard with an additional overnight advance replacement warranty in the first year. The GT Series is available through authorized Glyph dealers.
