LAS VEGAS & FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.--()--NAB Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it will demonstrate its newest Data Center PCIe NVMe SSD (DCP1000) to broadcast professionals and digital artists at the National Association of Broadcasters 2017 Show (NAB) in Las Vegas, NV. DCP1000 offers the industry’s highest data throughput for media intensive applications that depend on high-performance storage to compete.

“With the lowest latency and highest data throughput in the industry, DCP1000 is the solution the media and production industry needs to turn the latest exclusive story into production-ready broadcast content or render high-resolution video on tight deadlines,” said Ariel Perez, SSD business manager, Kingston. “DCP1000 is the perfect solution to meet the needs of digital content professionals in a wide variety of production environments utilizing many industry-leading production applications.”

Broadcast and digital content professionals face unprecedented production windows for delivering multi-platform digital content across a fiercely competitive and deeply fragmented media landscape. DCP1000 solves the challenge by delivering up to 7GB/s ultra-low latency read performance and 6GB/s write, as well as up to 1.25 million IOPS from a single device occupying one PCIe slot. In an ever-increasing digital world, production companies with data-intensive compute and processing requirements will realize the real-world benefits of the DCP1000 through:

  • Significant performance improvements for high resolution image editing and compositing, video encoding/transcoding and other production activities;
  • Reduced video playback and rendering from minutes to seconds;
  • Manipulating content in real time and reducing delays in the production pipeline that can affect deadline-driven task completion;
  • Excelling in emerging media such as 8K digital production and advanced virtual reality ecosystems in which already significant storage requirements grow with each new breakthrough.

At Kingston’s booth (South Hall Lower Level Booth # SL 12105) at NAB, the company will showcase:

  • A video wall streaming over 400 high-definition videos from a single DCP1000, demonstrating the raw power of its data read throughput.
  • A single 1U rack mount server running four (4) Kingston DCP1000 SSDs delivering

4.5 million IOPS and 20GB/s of sequential bandwidth.
