Supplementary Question:

Q:  What hard drives are recommended for TriCaster’s removable drive bay(s)?

A NewTek supplied storage media has been carefully tested to meet exacting specifications, and can be expected to provide optimal performance and reliability.

Of course, you are free to purchase storage media from other sources.  Keep in mind that manufacturer specifications and reviews may highlight favorable statistics, focusing on results from ‘typical’ (i.e., less demanding) operating environments.  (Naturally, NewTek cannot guarantee that hard drives obtained from such sources will provide performance adequate to TriCaster’s requirements.)


Here are some guidelines to keep in mind when obtaining hard drives from other sources:


  • All else being equal, larger drives are normally faster – try to use 1TB drives or above.
  • Use SATA 3.0GB/s drives with rotational speed of 7200 R.P.M. (or better).
  • Drives should have a larger onboard cache (32Mb or better is recommended).
