4k / 8k Productivity On The Go with ATTO Thunderbolt Adapters

With portable 6K and 8K digital cinema cameras now becoming available from companies like RED, field production can generate staggering amounts of data—all of which needs to be catalogued and archived on-site before being transferred to the studio for editing and finishing. But the mobile computers used for this purpose have traditionally provided limited performance, along with connectivity options that fail to meet the bandwidth needs of the Ultra High Definition formats now in use by media professionals. Additionally, there is a need to connect mobile computers to high-performance networks and storage to facilitate extended, collaborative workflows.
