Pro-level docking stations should be ready to handle any situation that you encounter in a production workflow. The OWC Thunderbolt Pro Dock is your on-location and post-production “mission control” with an unrivaled combination of super-fast 10Gb/s Ethernet, CFexpress and SD card readers, two Thunderbolt ports, one USB-C port, and three USB-A ports.
With this unique productivity enhancing configuration, you can ingest RAW video and photo files at speeds up to 1630MB/s. Collaborate in a shared workflow environment via the 10Gb Ethernet port to keep your projects streaming from file setup to final renders with headroom to spare. View projects in greater detail with an 8K display or create a panoramic dual 4K display. Daisy chain up to five Thunderbolt devices. All while powering your laptop and managing the typical USB devices you need to get the job done.
Add Media Versatility to DIT Carts
When you’re on location, your cart needs the power of versatility. With conveniently accessible front-side CFexpress and SD 4.0 card readers, the Thunderbolt Pro Dock helps you manage multiple card uploads efficiently. It’s a huge asset when you’re covering live events like conferences, festivals, and concerts where you’re working with multiple videographers and photographers.
Calm and Connected
In addition to eliminating the on-set or in studio chaos of multiple connections, the Thunderbolt Pro Dock’s solid aluminum fanless design lets you work in calm silence…even when transferring a huge file over a network.
Pro Audio Video AVB Ready
Time-sensitive data such as audio and video media streams require Audio Video Bridging (IEEE 802.1Qav, AVB) ready gear. No sweat… you can stream vast volumes of high-quality data to multiple destinations in real-time with very low latency over existing network cable via the Thunderbolt Pro Dock’s 10Gb Ethernet port.
Small Footprint, Big Connections
Sized similarly to a single external drive enclosure, the Thunderbolt Pro Dock’s aluminum case helps keep cart weight streamlined while easily fitting into a cart drawer or small box during cart breakdown.
With two Thunderbolt 3 ports, the Thunderbolt Pro Dock offers incredible potential to connect multiple devices to take on the biggest projects. You can daisy-chain up to 5 additional Thunderbolt devices to the Thunderbolt Pro Dock for studio-level storage, RAID arrays, PCIe expansion units, or all of these combined and connected at 40Gb/s bandwidth.
