SANLink2 8Gb FC Thunderbolt 2 Bridge

The world’s first Thunderbolt™ 2 Fibre Channel/Ethernet bridge

Streamline the creative process

Real-time editing of multimedia files in their native, uncompressed formats has persisted as a challenge for creative professionals. Fortunately, with SANLink2, costly rendering time (due to proxy editing) is eliminated. Gain access to low-latency, high-bandwidth storage through reduced file loading periods. Instantaneous response times during timeline scrubbing and faster media file transfers will become your new standard!

Master the 4K workflow

At the moment high-speed transfer capabilities are placed into the workplace, systems evolve. With SANLink2, all storage bottlenecks for desktop and portable computing systems are immediately alleviated through the introduction of Fibre Channel or 10Gb Ethernet connectivity into the work process. 4K (Ultra HD) environments consisting of bandwidth-hogging post-production and broadcasting operations now become seamless workflows, where downtime simply ceases to exist.

Offload video capture to a laptop or workstation with SANLink2

Downloading footage from today’s data-hungry cameras is one of the major challenges facing production companies these days. Take for example the Phantom Flex 4K camera. It transfers data to a Phantom 10Gb/s CineStation effortlessly, so that it can continue in an on-set shoot.The CineStation can be connected directly at 10Gb Ethernet speeds to a MacBook Pro with SANLink2 10GBase-T (copper) or 10G SFP+ (optical). The SANLink2 16G FC can connect this remote set up to a SAN for collaborative editing.Similarly, SANLink2 10GBase-T might be selected if switching is within 30 – 100 meters. For environments that require cabling to reach beyond 100 meters, the SANLink2 10G SFP+ uses fibre cabling and can reach significantly greater distances.

SANLink2 8Gb FC Features:

  • SANLink2 8Gb FC (and 16Gb FC) offers the fastest onsite performance for users who need to directly connect a Thunderbolt 2 Mac or PC to a SAN
  • Revolutionises how creative professionals connect from a Thunderbolt™ 2 device to a Fibre Channel SAN or directly to Ethernet
  • Built to maximise the available line rate of Thunderbolt™ 2
  • Access to low-latency, high-bandwidth storage reduces file load times, allows for instantaneous response time during timeline scrubbing, and reduces the amount of time required for large media file transfers
  • A complete out-of-the-box solution, simply plug in your SANLink2 with a power adaptor into a Thunderbolt™ port
  • Portable and desktop systems previously unable to connect to a high-speed Fibre Channel SAN can now do so using Thunderbolt™ 2 technology
