Sonnet Technologies To Introduce New Products At IBC2016

Sonnet Technologies announces new products to be presented at IBC2016.

Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe flash drive
This rugged, pocket-sized solid-state drive (SSD) storage device is capable of transferring data at speeds of over 2,100 MB/s, and is equipped with 512GB of flash storage. The Fusion flash drive is a fast alternative to portable SATA-based hard disk drives, SSD storage devices, and USB thumb drives. The new Fusion flash drive connects to any Windows computer with a Thunderbolt 3 port via a user-replaceable captive 0.5-meter Thunderbolt 3 (40Gbps) cable.

Measuring a compact 2.8-inches wide by 4.1-inches deep by 1.25-inches tall, the Fusion Thunderbolt 3 PCIe Flash Drive features a fanless aluminum enclosure that enables silent operation. The device is bus-powered and so requires no power adapter.

Sonnet SF3 Series — CFast 2.0 Pro card reader
Sonnet Technologies will unveil the first product in its new SF3 Series of Thunderbolt 3 pro media readers. The SF3 Series — CFast 2.0 card reader features a 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 interface and dual CFast 2.0 card slots. These features enable the reader to ingest from both cards simultaneously at concurrent data transfer speeds up to 1,100 MB/s — more than double the average ingest speed of USB 3 card readers. The compact SF3 Series — CFast 2.0 Pro card reader is compact, features a rugged aluminum enclosure, and is bus-powered with no power adapter required.

Echo 15+ Thunderbolt 2 Dock — New configuration option
Sonnet will show the Echo 15+ Thunderbolt 2 Dock, a fully featured docking station for computers with Thunderbolt ports. The Echo 15+ enables users to connect multiple devices to a central hub, and then connect to all of them with a single cable. The Echo 15+ features four USB 3.0 ports, two 6Gbps eSATA ports, one FireWire 800 port, one Gigabit Ethernet port, two 3.5-mm audio inputs, two 3.5-mm audio outputs, and two Thunderbolt 2 interfaces, plus the space, mounting support, and 6Gbps interfaces for one or two internal SATA drives.

The Echo 15+ includes the user’s choice of an 8x DVD±RW drive, a Blu-ray BD-ROM/8x DVD±RW drive with Blu-ray player software for OS X, a 4x BD-R/8x DVD±RW Blu-ray burner drive, or a new low-cost model without an included optical drive (which can be added later) but with the option to mount an additional internal drive.

“Blazing-fast Thunderbolt 3 data transfer solutions are beginning to make their appearance on the market, and Sonnet Technologies is leading the way. At IBC2016, we are looking forward to showing attendees our brand-new Thunderbolt 3 offerings that enable users to ingest, store, and manage 4K video content faster than ever before,” says Greg LaPorte, vice president of Sales and Marketing, Sonnet Technologies.
