During the late 1980’s Corporate Video budgets were estimated at £1000 per minute when the total cost of staff, cameras, and post production were taken into account. Considering that an Avid editing suite would have cost over £120,000 and the cameras required would be a similar amount this comes as no surprise.

Sonnet – Presto 10GbE 10GBaset-T card


When writing a blog, I always want to try and make it an exciting read, unfortunately this one is going to be quite dull and probably quite short too. but far from being a bad thing, that’s a compliment to the people over at Sonnet.

We Tested their Presto 10GbE 10GBaset-T card (G10E-2X-E3), I’ve had to install quite few NIC’s over the years so know they aren’t always as straight forward as they should be and can sometimes be trial and error to get the right driver version and installed in the right order, fortunately this was a straight forward install

To test the card we installed it on a Standard HP820 running Windows 7 64bit.
