Energy effecient NAS for 4k editing

 Share

Hi,

I am looking for Energy effecient NAS for 4k editing (RAID 5 or 10). Synology DiskStation NAS, DS920+ has only 1GbE LAN and my understading is that I need 2.5 GbE or 10GbE.

Does any solution support encryption?

Any suggestions?

 

Thank you in advance

What bitrate is the footage your working with? 4k doesn't matter, bitrate does.

 

What type of encryption do you want? when being copied or on the device.

 

Id get a higher end synology with a 10gbe port or pcie slot. How about this guy https://www.amazon.com/Synology-Bay-DiskStation-DS1621-Diskless/dp/B08HYQJJ62

 

Qnap also makes some options with 2.5gbe and 10gbe but Id avoid with the recent security issues.

60hz isn't a bitrate. Bitrate is in Kbps or Mbps or something similar units.

I am using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ and I could not find the bitrate. Is there a way to get this information?

You can calculate it your self by looking at how big the files are for a given duration.

 

But the bitrate on phones is normally very low, Id guess 100mbit or less. So editing over 1gbe should be fine.

 

Are multiple people editing this footage? Id probalby just add a hdd to a desktop/laptop to store the footage, esp since this footage shouldn't take much disk space.

Hi,

A 10-second 4k60 video is 87.78 Mb big. I might need to find something with more extensive storage in the future.

 

Additionally, I plan to capture my screen in 4k60, and Possible two people will do the editing.

 

In the meantime, I found this https://youtu.be/Hix0l8cFaMw

 

From the above video, I could not understand what other parts have been used.

 

Any suggestions to improve the build and maybe to make it to as little of electricity as possible?

Thats a pretty low bitrate, around 70mbit, you don't need much io speed to edit that.

Add-in card from LSI controller which supports nvme

Those lsi cards are normally only sata and sas. What nvme devices do you want to connect?

 

 

If low power is a big issue, Id go prebuilt with something like this guy https://www.synology.com/en-us/products/DS1621xs+

 

Those Synologys are pretty power efficient, and come with nice software. Pretty easy plug and play box.
