Announcing Blackmagic MultiDock with Thunderbolt 2

PostTue Mar 18, 2014 2:57 pm

Blackmagic Design today announced a new model of the Blackmagic MultiDock with super fast Thunderbolt 2 technology. The new Blackmagic MultiDock replaces the previous model and is available now from Blackmagic Design resellers worldwide for only US$595.

Blackmagic MultiDock is a 4 disk docking solution and high speed disk array featuring an attractive machined metal rack mount design with an easy to access “cartridge” style design that enables customers to work more efficiently with high capacity solid state drives. Each disk dock features an independent SATA interface chip for extremely fast data transfer speeds. MultiDock is fully compatible with SSDs recorded in HyperDeck broadcast recorders, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and more.

Compatible with existing Thunderbolt computers, MultiDock features advanced Thunderbolt 2 technology for blazingly fast transfer speeds at up to 20 Gb/s. This means customers get super responsive editing and color correction directly from source disks and avoid slow file copying. The new Blackmagic MultiDock also includes a loop thru so users can connect up to 6 devices with a single Thunderbolt connection. This means customers can build SSD docking stations with up to 24 slots or incredibly fast disk arrays consisting of up to 24 disks all striped together on a single Thunderbolt connection to the computer.

Blackmagic MultiDock uses Mac OS X and Windows driver support so SSDs will mount like regular built in hard disks. That ensures 100% compatibility with popular software tools including DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Avid, Smoke and more. Customers can even stripe multiple disks together and build a super fast SSD RAID array.

Does it work with HDD as well as SSD? There's no mention of it...... I don't know why it wouldn't but there's a suspicious lack of mention of it. The last version did...

There may have been backorders your reseller might have been fulfilling. Those should likely be filled within the next few weeks.

There's no reason why it shouldn't, it just a SATA connection inside each bay, so it should take 2.5" HDD's as well
