This Thunderbolt-based device fulfils two key functions: firstly it is the perfect solution for quickly importing video recorded on SSD drives onto your system for archiving, editing and playout. Secondly, striping 4 SSD drives together as a disk array creates a very fast RAID storage system, an ideal platform for high resolution video editing.
The Blackmagic MultiDock is a rack mount hard disk dock that allows independent disks to be inserted and mounted on the user’s computer. It also offers the option for multiple disks to be striped together to build an inexpensive Thunderbolt-based disk array.
With the introduction of Blackmagic Design’s HyperDeck SSD recorder/players as well as the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K that all use high speed solid state disks as their media, there has been a need for a broadcast strength rack mount dock that allows multiple disks to be managed and media to be used on computers.
The new Blackmagic MultiDock features a strong metal rack mount chassis and easy to access “cartridge” style design on the front of the unit that enables customers to work with large amounts of media more efficiently.
The built in Thunderbolt connection gives the Blackmagic MultiDock massive data transfer speeds. Each disk dock features an independent SATA interface chip, providing customers extremely fast access and data transfers.
