Three Promise Thunderbolt 2 and Storage Devices
For 4K video production
PROMISE Technology, Inc. announced three Thunderbolt 2 and shared storage devices engineered for creative professionals.
Pegasus2 M4 builds on the
Pegasus2, the world's first
Thunderbolt 2 hardware
storage solution, by delivering performance and capacity in a new, portable form
factor with four 1TB 2.5" drives.
Featuring a compact design, the 2.5" HDD/SSD Thunderbolt 2 Pegasus2 M4 external
RAID solution works with the new Mac Pro and is a solution for professionals
working both offsite and in-studio.
The Pegasus2 family supports OS X Mavericks and will add
support for Windows-based Thunderbolt hosts in Q2.
Thunderbolt 2 creates many exciting possibilities for media
creation and 4K workflows, flexibility and simplicity are core benefits of
Thunderbolt 2, and the portability and performance of the Pegasus2 M4 makes it
an ideal storage solution for content creators who need better ways to work.
As unstructured data continues to grow, creative professionals
will require access to unified storage. The VTrak G1100 NAS Gateway provides
10GbE access to the VTrak A3800 shared storage appliance, allowing multiple
users to simultaneously edit video for post-production and broadcasting. The
gateway is a 1U file server with 8Gb FC front end and 10GbE dual port back end
connectivity, which provides simplicity by utilizing the same single storage
management software as the VTrak A3800.
The SANLink2 10G is a Thunderbolt 2 10GBaseT bridge adapter
that connects a Mac Pro or any Thunderbolt 2 enabled Mac to 10GbE networks. Not
only does this provide versatility for mobile use when offsite, but also simpler
deployment and a more cost efficient infrastructure for direct ethernet access
from Thunderbolt 2.
Working with high resolution video means fast, high capacity
storage is essential, this line of solutions for the media and entertainment
industry offers extreme versatility in any setting - be it a video editor
working remotely with a laptop or a large enterprise requiring shared storage
for multiple users to edit at the same time.
The AJA Io 4K,
Pegasus2 and SANLink2, together
with the new Mac Pro with Thunderbolt 2 technology, deliver a powerful
end-to-end solution for simplified 4K video production - giving pro customers
time to focus on being creative rather than struggle with workflow issues.
Our tools are optimized to take advantage of the latest
technology trends such as 4K and beyond, customers want to create amazing
content and they want to do that efficiently and easily. PROMISE's VTrak and
Pegasus solutions play beautifully with Adobe Premiere Pro CC, giving customers
