Default To Steve R.: Unity/FibreChannel & ProTools

Hello Steve !
Do you have information when ProTools24 Mix and PTAV will be compatible with AVID Unity ?
There have been different announcements, advertising about FC compatibility, during the last two years, but never a concrete result.
We have 28 AVID Media Composer systems and we want to intergrate half of this systems and our ProTools/ProControl systems in a Fibre Channel SAN. I´ve found no one to talk to at AVID or digidesign, who has a realistic roadmap, when and how such a integration will be possible.We want to invest in more ProTools systems and a SAN is the way to go for us.At the current state we see no other choise then going for a officially incompatible solution (Rorke or Glyph) and have no connectivity with our AVID stations.Perhaps you can help me with more information or connect me to someone who is responsible for Unity at digi.

Best regards !

We are currently working on Pro Tools with Unity, it is definitely something we are concentrating on but as of now is now fully supported. It will work in what we call a "push-pull" fashion. This means that you can have a Pro Tools system on the Unity network but you will have to copy the media files to local drives on the Pro Tools system as opposed to playing/sharing them from the server.

We should have more info in the next several months.
