Legacy Product ThunderPack™ 1.0 is now only available for special order (ask).

ThunderPack™ 1.0 revolutionized portable, all-in-one systems for digital film and TV production. Its future-proof design easily handles the huge files generated by today’s 4K/6K/8K cameras with its Thunderbolt 2 or 3 interface and superior 120TB storage capacity. ThunderPack™ 1.0 what the market-changer, that simplified what are now complex workflows involving clumsy production carts, external equipment needed for high-resolution monitoring, fast storage arrays, and making sure there’s enough power available when it’s needed.

It connects to Apple™ MacBook Pro™, MacBook Air™ and MacPro™ “trash can” computers via a Thunderbolt 2/3 port, through which all commonly used software (Avid, FCP, Resolve, YoYotta, etc.) can access files directly and rapidly. Tablets and smartphones connect via ThunderPack’s optional WiFi module. The case is outfitted with a unique large wheel system with shock absorbers for moving through rugged terrain.

Optional carbon fiber work surfaces attach to the telescoping handle when extended to hold laptops, keyboards, color grading panels, and monitors.

ThunderPack™ combines a 24-drive 2.5” disk RAID array (up to 120TB RAID-0 or 110TB RAID-6), SAS3 access to an optional LTO-7 for backing up rushes, Gigabit Ethernet and a 3-port Gigabit Ethernet switch with DHCP server for connecting other devices, and a Blackmagic Design™ Decklink Duo video I/O card. ThunderPack™ is powered by a sophisticated 320W power management system, by any available 12V solar panel or even an external battery pack. It includes a 588Wh Li-ion battery UPS system with 6 batteries.

With the Thunderbolt 3 interface available since Q3 2017, ThunderPack™ 1.0, althoulg a legacy product, remains the fastest data transfer system on the market, delivering up to 3,300 MB/s using HDDs and nearly saturating the Thunderbolt 3 bus when using SSDs.

ThunderPack™ 1.0 different models allow various connections to external LTOs and the Codex Capture Drives, also offering BMD Decklink Duo for connecting to complex workflows.
