Small Tree announces new ThunderNET solution for Mac post-production professionals

Small Tree is showing its new ThunderNET solution for post-production professionals at NAB 2013  (Booth SL6005).

Created to enable post-production pros to take advantage of the increasing processing power available in today’s all-in-one desktop, mini and laptop computers, ThunderNET opens up a whole world of possibilities. Combining high performance I/O capabilities of Thunderbolt™ with the flexibility of PCIe, ThunderNET provides creative media professionals a cost effective solution to integrate Thunderbolt equipped platforms into high performance storage and data networks.

ThunderNET supports 1 or 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to iMac, Mac Mini, MacBook Pro or MacBook Air computers, providing new levels of network performance and connecting seamlessly to Small Tree’s Ethernet shared storage appliance, GraniteSTOR TITANIUM, or 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches. ThunderNET can also provide additional Gigabit Ethernet connectivity to your current network.

“With their lower cost, compact form factor and increased portability, today’s lineup of Mac computers offer many advantages over traditional desktop systems,” said Corky Seeber, president of Small Tree. “However, these same systems do not provide enough connectivity flexibility for professionals in the creative fields. ThunderNET capitalizes on the new Thunderbolt™ technology to create an affordable and extremely robust solution for the post-production industry.”

Adding network bandwidth to any computer with a Thunderbolt™ port, ThunderNET offers several options, allowing customers to select the right amount of bandwidth necessary to meet their workflow demands.
