I manage operations at a video production house, we’ve been doing corporate productions for years and are looking to set up multiple user access to our Drobo servers which house all video archiving data, FCP files, assets,etc. All editors will be using FCP 7. We really just want to set up three access points to these Drobos using a mac mini set up as a server to manage access. All machines are in relative proximity to one another (45 ft or less).
I’ve heard several takes on the best way to do this and want to solicit some input from the community. The easiest way involves an ethernet network, with each editor accessing files and editing in real time over the ethernet network.
Has anyone tried this? Any input is welcome, thanks!
Ethernet works more than fine here. No lagging on other machines or anything. Every now and then anew userwill move some files and that’ll throw em offline in another room but it’s as easy as reconnecting and explaining the worlflow to the team.
