Direct Thunderbolt™ 2 Access

The new SANLink2 16G FC is a compact device that allows a Thunderbolt™ 2 host computer to directly connect to a Fibre Channel SAN, doubling the speed of the previous generation 8 Gb FC. SANLink2 10GBase-T connects devices to the local network to access shared media, and SANLink2 10G SFP+ connects devices to the network via optical for remote branches and offices at distances greater than 100 meters.

Offload video capture to a Mac Pro or Windows workstation with SANLink2

Take for example the Phantom Flex 4K camera. It transfers data to a Phantom 10 Gbps CineStation so that it can continue in an on-set shoot. The CineStation can be connected directly at 10 Gb Ethernet speeds to a MacBook Pro with SANLink2 10GBase-T (copper) or 10 G SFP+ (optical). At the same time, this MacBook Pro can have a Pegasus2 M4 SSD attached via a SANLink2 16G FC for the fastest data transfer of over 1300 MB/s for editing off multi-cameras capturing different points of view. The SANLink2 16G FC can connect this remote set up to a VTrak A-Class for collaborative editing. Similarly, SANLink2 10GBase-T might be selected if cabling for an immediate datacenter is within 30 - 100 meters. For companies that require cabling to reach beyond 100 meters, the SANLink2 10G SFP+ is the ideal choice.

Streamline the Creative Process

Real-time editing of multimedia files in their native, uncompressed formats has persisted as a challenge for creative professionals. Fortunately, with SANLink2, costly rendering time (due to proxy editing) is eliminated. Gain access to low-latency, high-bandwidth storage through reduced file loading periods. Instantaneous response times during timeline scrubbing and faster media file transfers become your new standard.

Master the 4K Workflow

At the moment high-speed transfer capabilities are placed into the workplace, systems evolve. With SANLink2, all storage bottlenecks for desktop and portable computing systems are immediately alleviated through the introduction of Fibre Channel or 10 Gb Ethernet connectivity into the work process. 4K (Ultra HD) environments consisting of bandwidth-hogging post-production and broadcasting operations now become seamless workflows, where downtime ceases to exist.
