CalDigit have announced their ThunderExpress PCIe adaptor, their first Thunderbolt product. This unit allows you to connect one of their three PCIe RAIDs to any Mac, Windows or Linux machine that has a Thunderbolt port.
We can't believe we read a tweet this morning saying that there weren't any new Thunderbolt products on display at IBC. Maybe they didn't go past the G-Technology stand and catch sight of this 8TB monster prototype.
Matrox have taken a different approach to Thunderbolt connectivity with their I/O products compared to other manufacturers. Instead of building new models with Thunderbolt connectors, the adaptor allows new and existing products to use the superfast technology.
We think we'll look back and see the introduction of Thunderbolt as a bit of a watershed. Today AJA Video Systems announced the io XT, a portable I/O video 7 audio capture box. We sat down with Tony Cacciarelli who took us through all the new products and updates for IBC 2011.
When we first saw the announcement about Thunderbolt we knew it would change the industry. We met up with Clément Barberis from LaCie to look at the Little Big Disk and its new Thunderbolted big brother.
You might have noticed a slowdown on the site recently, this is because every day we get more and more new traffic and our old creaky server 'Cannot handle it anymore Captain.' So over the next few days we are upgrading (again) our hosting hardware to handle the traffic. We have grown far quicker than we expected, so a big thank you to you all out there for making us the destination for everything FCPX and of course Final Cut Pro. In the meantime, sorry if we go offline or things run slower than they should.
AJA Video have been in the Mac video card business for over 10 years, no doubt you have either owned one or edited on a system using one. Here Jon from AJA runs through the products and looks to the future.
When the iPhone version of this storyboard creation app was launched, we thought it was pretty cool but maybe the size of the iPhone made everything a bit fiddly to work. Now Cinemek have released a version that also works on the iPad which gives the app a new lease of life with the extra real estate.
