Monday, April 18, 2022 in Fremont, California. Blackmagic Design has announced the Blackmagic Cloud Pod, which allows you to use any USB-C disk as network storage. Customers can now use USB-C flash disks they already own to create their own network storage with the Blackmagic Cloud Pod. Using high-speed 10G Ethernet and Dropbox sync, users can store files locally and make them available to everyone on their network at the same time. With the HDMI monitoring output on the Blackmagic Cloud Pod, it's possible to keep an eye on the network storage status in real time.
For $395, Blackmagic Design resellers around the world have the Blackmagic Cloud Pod in stock and ready to ship.
Customers' work will be transformed by Blackmagic Cloud Pod. A USB-C flash disk can be recorded using the Blackmagic Cloud Pod, which makes the disk accessible to multiple editors and colorists over a network. If the USB-C flash disk is of the right brand, it can even handle massive 12K Blackmagic RAW digital cinema files. Customers can buy USB-C flash drives at any office supply store because they are inexpensive, have no seek times, and can be purchased at any retail location.
Because it lacks internal storage, the Blackmagic Cloud Pod is incredibly thin and light. On top of all that, it's extremely quiet and lightweight. Due to the inclusion of two USB-C ports, it is capable of simultaneously hosting two different USB disks on its network. Customers can expect lightning-fast speeds thanks to the 10G Ethernet port. Clients can also view a live graphic view of the storage system's operation on a TV or monitor thanks to the addition of an HDMI monitoring output.
The Blackmagic Cloud Pod is extremely fast thanks to a separate, high-speed 10G Ethernet connection. Customers can take advantage of today's fast USB-C disks to their full potential thanks to internal processing optimized to reach the theoretical maximum speed of the 10G Ethernet port. Fast responsiveness can be achieved by using flash USB-C disks. Even when working with 12K RAW digital film files. Even with large digital film camera files, multicamera editing is very smooth.
