Archion Offers Storage Trade-In Program To Avid Unity™ And Lanshare™ Clients

By October 15, 2007News

Burbank, CA, Oct. 15, 2007 – Archion, the entertainment industry’s largest storage solution provider to Avid® storage systems, is now offering a storage Trade-In Program for Avid Unity™ and LANshare™ clients. The trade-in, which begins immediately and runs until Dec. 31, 2007, will allow clients with obsolete ZX and ZX3 chassis to receive trade-in credit toward Archion’s Award Winning “Synergy HD™” storage. The announcement was made by Daniel Stern, Executive Vice President, Sales, for Archion.

Regarding the new program, Mr. Stern said, “There are hundreds of Avid Unity™ and LANshare™ systems with aging ZX chassis that have no replacement or expansion options. By initiating this trade-in, we wanted our customers to know they have options to expand and enhance their Unity™ and LANshare™ systems. Synergy HD™ provides superior media protection at a cost that is 50% less than equivalent mirrored Avid® storage. This trade-in promotion increases ROI and renews their existing technology without requiring costly and time consuming upgrades.”


Archion’s Synergy HD™ was engineered to expand the storage requirements of existing Unity™ clients without the need to replace or upgrade their current Unity™ infrastructure. The sophistication and intelligence of Synergy HD™ extends the usable life of current Unity MediaNetworks™, while providing a greater ROI for storage. Synergy HD™ is fully compatible with Archion’s Alliance™ and Synergy™ products. Unlike Unity MediaNetworks™, Synergy HD™’s Hardware RAID protects media in the event of a drive failure without the need to mirror. Synergy HD™ has rapidly become the storage of choice for existing Avid Unity™ clients.


Archion’s Synergy HD™ features an unrivaled compatibility with Unity™ that extends the capacity and performance while sustaining the life span of Avid’s legacy Unity™ systems. This groundbreaking product extends Archion’s original Synergy HD™ abilities up to 400MB/sec bandwidth with its dual 2GB FC ports, 2 loop out ports, and has increased its capacity from 8TB to 12TB in the same 3 RU space. Synergy HD™ is a full-featured SATA II to FC Raid storage system designed for networking digital video systems in an Avid Unity™ environment. It is available in units from 4 TB to 12TB in RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, and 50 and is certified for Unity™ 3.3 thru 5.0


Archion Technologies, headquartered in Burbank, California, was founded in 1999 by a group of technology entrepreneurs with a vision for designing networked storage systems for the professional video market. For more information, please see
