High-Speed I/O Performance

With the extremely fast throughput performance of the Thunderbolt connection and the 6Gb/s eSATA interface, solid state drives (SSD's) can run at full SATA-III speeds. A single SSD can reach speeds of up to 530MB/s and if two SSD's are combined in a RAID array, transfer rates can go even higher.

SSD Reader

The included SATA cable with USB power provides filmmakers with the ability to connect any SSD, straight from their camera, regardless of brand or capacity, directly to their laptop without it needing to be plugged into a power outlet. When you’re on a deadline, every second counts. Raw data on an SSD can be passed along to a DIT for editing and the filmmaker can insert a new SSD into the camera and continue filming at the same time that editing is taking place.
