ThunderPack™ Mk I 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™ Mk I was 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. ThunderPack™ Mk 1 combined 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™ Mk I 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™ Mk I, although a legacy product, remains the fastest data transfer system of its kind in the market, delivering up to 3,300 MB/s using HDDs and nearly saturating the Thunderbolt 3 bus when using SSDs.
The case is outfitted with a unique large wheel system with shock absorbers for moving through rugged terrain.
