Thunderbolt 2/USB 3.0 to 6Gb/s SATA RAID Storage
ARC-5028T2 features two cutting-edge interfaces, Thunderbolt 2 and SuperSpeed USB 3.0. Thunderbolt 2 is full backward compatibility to the same cables and connectors used with today’s Thunderbolt. It pushes speed to 20Gb/s and enables 4K video file transfer and display simultaneously.

ARC-5028T2 is equipped with dual Thunderbolt 2 ports for connecting to any Thunderbolt 2-enabled host such as the new Mac Pro, and offers an additional Thunderbolt 2 port for daisy-chaining other peripherals. The Thunderbolt daisy-chaining allows connection of up to six devices, so customers can connect ARC-5028T2 for massive amounts of video storage with a single Thunderbolt connection to their host computer.

ARC-5028T2 can meet the demand of users when working with rich, ultra-high resolution media through Thunderbolt 2 interface. The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface offers high-performance connectivity and is backward compatibility with any computer running compatible versions of Mac OS X (such as Mac Pro) or Windows.

ARC-5028T2 is a 6-bay 6Gb/s SAS/SATA Thunderbolt 2/USB 3.0 storage with RAID control capabilities solution for Mac and PC environment. ARC-5028T2 incorporated high performance ROC and 1GB DDR3 memory with ECC protection to deliver true hardware RAID for the video editor working with real time multistream HD and 4K workflows.

It runs efficiently without disruption or major drops in performance to meet the requirements of 4K data workflow. It is so quick it allows for 4K displays at the same time as daisy chaining ARC-5028T2 and doing a simultaneous 4K output and file transfers while maintaining maximum throughput.
