Director of photography Barry Braverman teamed up with director Tom Ropelewski to film a documentary on the history of rock 'n' roll featuring past and current performers. While planning his workflow for the fast run-and-gun project, he knew he'd be able to rely on the speed and efficiency of the Glyph Atom RAID SSD. "The ultra-reliable Atom RAID SSD was my first choice for quickly offloading critical 4K camera files," Braverman says.

The drive is small, the size of a cigarette pack, so Braverman had no trouble transporting it, and its rugged construction ensured it would be unaffected by extreme weather conditions or being accidentally dropped.

With a bus speed 100 times faster than a conventional mechanical drive, the Atom RAID SSD enabled Braverman to offload files on set very quickly via a simple USB-C cable. "The speed of the drive dramatically accelerated the process of offloading camera footage in the field, where a few minutes can be critical."

Their extensive interview process meant long workdays, with up to eight hours of footage per camera needing to be offloaded after shooting was done each day. The accelerated workflow and speed of the Glyph SSD meant Braverman could zip through the offloading and verification processes and then join the rest of the crew for dinner like a civilized person.

"The combination of Glyph's controller and SSD technology makes the Atom RAID SSD extremely efficient and reliable. Needless to say, this is critical for media professionals when managing original camera footage."
