Large Portable Storage Capacity
The 2-bay TD2 Thunderbolt 3 is compatible with both 3.5" SATA disks and 2.5" SSDs, offering a professional solution to on-the-go storage with a total storage capacity of up to 32TB, which represents around two million HD images or up to 80 hours of 4K video. The TD2 Thunderbolt 3 is also equipped with a special handle for additional portability, allowing it to be easily transported for video recording, video copying, and video demos wherever they are needed.
Drawing on a pair of Thunderbolt 3 interfaces (40 Gbps) and a hardware RAID controller, the TD2 Thunderbolt 3 can operate at reading speeds of 760 MB/s (SSD x 2, RAID 0).
The time needed for virtually every aspect of the post-production workflow falls when using the TD2 Thunderbolt 3. At lightning speed, users can transfer several hours of footage from a Blackmagic® device to Adobe® Premiere Pro. In turn, with uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video, users can edit the ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 4444 XQ, and other data streams. Thumbnails and preview rendering are significantly more responsive when using large items with numerous high-definition clips.
Using one cable, Thunderbolt 3 enables users to daisy-chain more than five devices to their computer. As a result, users can achieve an enormous 168TB capacity by linking together six TD2 Thunderbolt 3 devices.
If your Mac has Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 ports, you can capitalise on the TD2 Thunderbolt 3 to achieve high-end transfer rates. With Apple’s Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter (not sold with the TD2 Thunderbolt 3), compatibility between the TD2 Thunderbolt 3 and earlier Thunderbolt technologies is straightforwardly achieved.
