Glyph offers serious storage for serious work.
Most companies build external hard drives without a fan. That may be fine for office use but in heavy-duty work like audio and video production, your drive has a higher likelihood of failing. To keep the drive mechanism cool and your data safe, Glyph uses whisper-quiet fans that produce no more than 20 dBA.
All Glyph rack-mountable storage also comes with built-in, grounded power supply. With Glyph you don’t need external PSUs with flimsy connections and grounding problems.
IHSE GmbH has been designing and constructing extender devices since 1988, helping to increase the distance between a computer and its peripherals (monitor, keyboard, etc).
IHSE has always applied high standards and offered extenders for the very latest PC technology:
from EGA, through VGA, and, since 2002, DVI – completely digital transfer by means of glass fibre technology.
In critical applications like audio/video, hard drives quality is as important as RAM quality, because all your audio and video data will reside on it. When the drive goes down, you are in deep trouble. There are vast quality differences between drives built for different purposes so it’s important to know which drives you can trust. Needless to say, we use only the fastest, most reliable 24/7 server-grade drives. Price differences against cheap office cousins are so small that it’s not a good idea to jeopardise your data because of few Francs.
We think that it’s not worth to spend time and money to troubleshoot a computer just to find out that a cheap RAM stick is not working correctly. Specially in a real-time work like digital audio and video, today’s high-speed RAM has to work perfectly or you’ll end up crashing without any apparent reason. The few pizzas worth of cash initially “saved” with cheap RAM can end up in a very frustrating experience because troubleshooting flaky RAM tends to be time-consuming and therefore expensive.
