The industry’s response to the latest additions to our product family proves JMR’s ability to match investment cost to project needs as the digital tools for production and post production workflow have moved from HD to 2K to 4K and beyond.

JMR Electronics, Inc., a leading provider of scalable storage solutions, will debut their newest desktop-to-enterprise studio storage offerings; a new ultra-portable flash drive; new line of Thunderbolt-2 to PCIe expansion for both mobile and fixed media-centric applications; the industry’s highest performance and lowest cost file transfer system; and new ways to rackmount and integrate storage with the Mac Pro® and Mac Mini®. Visitors to NAB can meet with JMR executives and view these award winning products at the Las Vegas Convention Center in booth #SL11517 - South Hall Lower Level.

JMR’s launch of their new products continues the company’s innovative 34-year history as both a manufacturer and systems integrator of high performance, massively scalable and extremely reliable storage desktop and rackmount solutions. The flood of products from JMR’s U.S.-based engineering and manufacturing teams comes in response to demand from movie studios, broadcasters, cinematographers, post houses and the like, from acquisition-to-delivery, while simultaneously utilizing resources scattered across the globe.

“The industry’s response to the latest additions to our product family proves JMR’s ability to match investment cost to project needs as the digital tools for production and post production workflow have moved from HD to 2K to 4K and beyond,” said Josef Rabinovitz, president and CEO of JMR. “We build each system to match performance and capacity with application need. For example, as the solo independent or small-to-medium studio expands beyond do-it-yourself storage, JMR provides desktop, rackmount, and portable systems that excel in the simplicity of operation at industry leading price performance with enterprise level performance and robustness.” Rabinovitz continued, “On the delivery end, our DataMover can help studios transfer data at very near line speed across town, across the nation or around the globe. Nothing can be simpler, faster, or more cost effective to implement than a JMR system.”

Production and post-production creative and business professionals needing high performance storage systems for in-house and offsite workflows will have the ability to get a hands on experience with JMR systems in the following categories:

JMR’s new BlueStor™ SHARE™ Networked Storage Server is the perfect storage complement to growing small to medium size studios. SHARE is a 3U 16 bay server available in 32, 48, 64, 96 TB and can scale to 672TB with a single head unit. The system offers a multitude of enterprise features including 16 6Gb/s SAS/SATA disk drive bays, four (N+1 configured) high-velocity cooling fans, dual 620W (N+1) hot-swappable power supplies, dual internal SAS Expanders, four 1 Gb/s NIC ports or optional Dual/Quad 10Gb/s and a high performance motherboard with an Intel Quad Core CPU.

Powered by the euroNAS software OS, multiple SHAREs can also be configured as a High Availability Cluster System which provides active-active failover for 100% uptime.

JMR Lightning Product Family
The Thunderbolt Lightning product family represents the widest and most comprehensive line of Thunderbolt-2 to PCIe offerings in the industry. The systems are fully Intel and Apple approved and Thunderbolt certified for Mac and Windows. They range from a 256GB ultra-compact Flash Drive with Thunderbolt-2 interface; to small, lightweight single and dual-slot Thunderbolt-2/PCIe expanders; to small, lightweight desktop and rackmount 4-slot Thunderbolt-2/PCIe expanders; to the new LTNG-XQ and XQ-8-DTMP. They are one-of-a-kind products that also safely house the new-generation Mac Pro computer, remote its on-off power function and all of its I-O ports, and add boost cooling to the computer to keep it running cooler – all while providing a RAID storage subsystem.

JMR DataMover
The JMR DataMover appliance is a high speed enterprise class data mover that operates at near line speed and is independent of file size or depth of directory nesting. This allows users to quickly and easily transfer large and small files across networks, whether locally, across the nation, or around the world. The system includes the capability to compress, de-duplicate, encrypt, and difference data, in virtually any combination, during data movement. All of these features operate at full bandwidth, independent of any latency introduced by the distance between the source and destination.

JMR ProBracket
MR ProBracket is an innovative racking system that enables you to easily mount and protect a new Mac Pro investment under a desk, aside a desk pedestal, to a wall, or into a rack cabinet. More versatile than any hard drive enclosure, server rack or computer tower, ProBracket mounting is safe, secure and easy to install for students and professionals alike.

JMR will also be showcasing two additional products at NAB. Their new SiloStor™ is a unique NVMe SSD plug-in card that’s a full-length, half-height PCIe x8 drive that adds 2TB or more of high-availability storage to any server, computer or work station using the latest flash NAND technology. It occupies a x8 PCIe slot and may be connected via Thunderbolt® PCIe expansion to those computers offering this capability. Typical random 4K read speed is 90,000 IOPS (sequential read speed of 2,150 MB/s) with a write speed of 70,000 IOPS (sequential write speed of 1,500 MB/s).

The second product, available later in the year, is a portable Thunderbolt/RAID desktop and rackmount workstation for the Mac Mini. Perfect for ingest and dailies, the Lightning LTNG-XD-8-MMDT desktop/DI cart workstation transforms the Mac Mini into a powerful DI workstation, complete with an optional 8” LCD flip-up monitor for on-site viewing. The Mac Mini installs via an easy slide-in sled from the rear, and the desktop provides front-panel USB3 and audio I/O and media card reader, while the rear panel provides all other Mac connections. An internal Thunderbolt controller and 2-slot PCIe (x8 full-height slots) expander with an internal 6Gb SAS RAID controller are standard, as well as eight 3.5” hot-swappable disk drive bays to provide up to 64TB of native disk storage capacity (RAID 0/1/4/5/6/40/50/60). The LTNG-XD-8-MM2U rackmount version will also be shown and is ideally suited for DI carts or machine room operations.
