Ontario, Canada, November 11, 2008â€“The Ontario Institute of Audio Recording Technology (OIART), based in London, Ontario, Canada, offers students a comprehensive immersion program that prepares graduates for professional careers in music recording, live sound, audio for picture and related fields. Avastorâ€™s HDX-400 dual Firewire external hard drives have been the school’s drive of choice for storing sessions on the facilityâ€™s various digital workstations.
â€œAvastor HDX drives meet our criteria, offering a professionally designed hard drive that successfully completes the challenges of editing and streaming hi-res digital audio on our Pro Tools workstations,â€? says OIART Director of Operations Ken Trevenna. â€œWe like its robust 3.5 amp internal AC power supply, cooling fan and unique screwless assembly on its drive enclosure. The NARAS approved label set and tough Lockbox packaging completes the system.”
Richard Wilson, Avastor’s senior VP of sales and marketing, comments, â€œOIART’s selection of the Avastor HDX hard drive for its workstations, will more than likely result in future generations of audio engineers recognizing Avastorâ€™s HDX drivesâ€™ technical merits as well as product design. I am sure Avastor will become their drive of choice in the future.”
OIART is supplied by Premier Magnetics, Avastorâ€™s major Canadian distributor.
