The Blackmagic Design Cloud Pod lets you turn any USB-C disk into network storage. That’s perfect when you want to share a media disk recorded on a camera with multiple users on your network. It features a high-speed 10G Ethernet connection for extremely fast file access. It's quick, even when there are multiple users viewing files at the same time! Files may be distributed globally using Dropbox live sync, allowing for extremely quick local file access even on low-cost internet connections. Plus, because it's simple to use, you won't need IT consultants. There's even an HDMI output for a monitor! The Blackmagic Cloud Pod is the ideal way to share data across your network.
Cloud Pod Features:
High Performance 10G Ethernet
The Blackmagic Cloud Pod has a high-speed 10G Ethernet port, which is only found on expensive workstation computers. With 10G Ethernet, you get 10 times the speed of regular Ethernet. Plus most computers can be upgraded to add 10G Ethernet! The Blackmagic Cloud Pod is so fast, it will run the 10G Ethernet port to its maximum capacity. Even when connected to an Ethernet switch with dozens of users accessing files at the same time. The Ethernet also features very low latency for fast access times. That’s similar performance to expensive business SANs but in a low cost design that you can install yourself!
No Subscription Costs
One of the big advantages of the Blackmagic Cloud Pod is that it’s private storage that you fully control. There are no subscriptions to sign up for. There are no monthly license fees. There is no tracking of your usage or data. You don't even need to log into a web page to maintain the storage settings, because Blackmagic Cloud Pod uses a free to download software utility that runs on Mac and Windows. That means you can run a private network, totally disconnected from the internet. This is critical for many security standards where computer networks cannot be connected to the external internet. With Blackmagic Cloud Pod, you can customize your network storage solution with total freedom.
Designed for Film and Television
Blackmagic Cloud Pod will transform customer's work! It's perfect for film and television because you can record onto USB-C flash disks and then use the Blackmagic Cloud Pod to make the disk available on the network for multiple editors and colorists to use. Depending on the brand of USB-C flash disk used, it even handles massive 12K Blackmagic RAW digital cinema files! USB-C flash disks are amazing because they are affordable, have zero seek times and you can buy them in any office supply store. Dropbox sync allows you to place pods in different locations so everyone can have a fast local copy of their files. Then each location gets the fastest editing experience possible.
Portable and Quiet Design
Blackmagic Cloud Pod features an extremely small and thin design because it doesn't have any storage internally! It’s also very quiet and very portable! It features two USB-C ports so it can host two separate USB disks on your network at the same time. The 10G Ethernet port means you get extremely high performance. There is also an HDMI monitoring output so you can watch a live graphic view of the storage operating on a TV or monitor. Along the front there is a status light that shows disk activity, so you know when the USB-C disk is being accessed. There's also a DC power connection so you can use the included power supply, or run it from a battery when it’s used on location.
