We are in the process of writing up a 'Thunderbolt roundup' from IBC, but thought this was worth a special post. LaCie has released a drive that can convert into an HDD/SDD combination for faster speeds.
JMR is a company that we haven't really heard of before, they are normally associated with a wide range of high capacity storage products. What got our attention at NAB 2014 was their new Mac Pro mounting brackets. Apologies for the spelling too.
At the recent Los Angeles Creative Pro User Group, Neil Smith from LumaForge explored the new Mac Pro's speed and its storage options. He also demos the new networking option in town, one that we are getting very excited about.!
So just how good are the dual GPUs in the new Mac Pro? We asked audio visual performer Jim Warrier to take them to their limits by running visual performance benchmark apps. The faster they go, the faster FCPX and Motion will go too.
So when you purchase your new Mac Pro and install Final Cut Pro X 10.1, you are going to want some fast Thunderbolt 2 storage to go with it. The new Promise Pegasus 2 RAIDS are available now. A diskless model and the answer to who bought the RED Mac Pro too.
Slightly usurping AJA, Blackmagic Design has announced a new UltraStudio 4K. Priced at $995, it's the first video device I/O with Thunderbolt 2 technology, offering 20 Gb/s capture and playback of SD, HD, Ultra HD and DCI 4K.
