Glyph Production Technologies will begin shipping its new portable RAID-protected storage device, the PortaGig 62, following the AES show, the second week of November.

THRILLERS by definition have always aimed to excite the viewer, using a battery of techniques. Classics such as Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest and the early Mad Max, Die Hard, Alien and Terminator films were constructed around brilliantly structured sequences that amounted to miniature symphonies of tension and release, full of excitement, suspense, relief and shock.
