Designed by professionals for professionals, the newest addition to OWC’s lineup of connectivity solutions was built from the ground up to meet the rigorous demands of today’s professional video production, image processing and extreme performance data workflows.
High Bandwidth and Flexibility for Demanding Hi-Res Needs
Pro-level docking stations must be equipped to handle any situation in a production workflow. The OWC Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock is the ultimate on-location, post production “mission control” solution, with an unrivaled combination of super-fast 10Gb Ethernet, CFast and SD card readers, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, three USB 3.1 ports, and full support for eSATA devices and drives. For maximum efficiency for multiple card transfers, the CFast and SD 4.0 card readers are conveniently accessible on the unit’s front side. And while big on pro-level features, OWC’s new Pro Dock sports a compact footprint roughly the size of a single external drive enclosure.
Extreme Performance and Unprecedented Versatility
With this unique productivity configuration, creators can ingest and work with 4/8K RAW video and RAW photo files immediately at speeds up to 600MB/s.
