S uitcase TV have developed a range of intelligent storage devices and media management software that optimise both the storage and the processing of media. MediaStor is not just a storage solution; it is a media management concept. The TeraStor intelligent storage device uses both high capacity, high density spinning disk technology as well as quad-core processors for maximising the ability for onboard media processing. MediaXchange, the media management software, assumes that you want maximum control of your media without having to know the intricacies of the file management structure that lies under the surface, or of the physical storage devices.
