An interview from the 2019 Cine Gear Expo at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles with AJ Gerth of OWC. Other World Computing (OWC), founded by Larry O'Connor when he was 14 years old in 1988, is dedicated to helping tech enthusiasts and industry professionals do more and reach higher. Their trusted storage, connectivity, software and expansion solutions enable creative professionals, producers, educators and government entities to get the most out of their technology investments, protect valuable digital assets and expand their hardware's capabilities to keep up with the demands and evolution of their work.
In this interview AJ talks with us about with us about the second generation of their super-fast ThunderBlade external SSD, with a lower price point and improved performance. For creative professionals and prosumers who work to capture and process 4K or 8K video, the updated ThunderBlade Gen 2 can be the difference between staying under budget and on-schedule on a project - or not.
The new ThunderBlade is stackable and runs cooler than the previous iteration, while still maintaining a near-silent environment with its fanless operation, all factors that can be critical in an operation on the go or in a tight space. With dual Thunderbolt 3 ports users can daisy-chain up to five additional ThunderBlades, and by connecting more than one drive with SoftRAID, speeds can be increased up to 3800MB/s. The newest ThunderBlade can complete a 1TB content transfer in under four-and-a-half minutes.
Whether using a single ThunderBlade on the road or daisy-chaining up to six units in production space for up to 48TB of the fastest transfer speeds OWC has ever produced, users can count on ThunderBlade to help them get their dailies daily, providing safe, creative content management and huge time and money savings in production budgets.
