Introducing Blackmagic Design’s new, super fast rack mount 4 slot USB‑C disk dock which allows you to edit your media disks directly! Designed for the film and television industry, and featuring a rack mount design with an independent SATA driver chip on each disk this is the perfect tool for editors, colourists and on-set media management. Access all 4 SSD’s through a high speed, 10Gb/s USB-C connection for blazingly fast transfer speeds.
Unlike other SSD docking equipment, the Blackmagic MultiDock 10G is a compact 1 RU all metal design you can mount in any professional rack. Each disk slot features an illuminated disk indicator so you can see when disks are being accessed. No need to install any separate software, simply plug-in and play. The rear panel features 2 USB‑C connections and a slide switch to allow selecting between using 4 disk slots on a single USB‑C connection, or 2 slots on each USB‑C connection for shared use.
Use with your favourite editing software
New SSDs are so fast it’s no longer necessary to use RAID arrays to get enough speed for editing. That means you can add up to 4 media disks to editing software such as DaVinci Resolve,Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro CC, Avid Media Composer, Autodesk Smoke and more. Blackmagic MultiDock 10G is also fantastic for backup as you can insert mechanical hard disks into the slots and backup direct to the disks.
Works with HyperDeck Extreme 8K HDR
The secret to using Blackmagic MultiDock 10G with HyperDeck Extreme is the high speed USB‑C port on the rear panel called External Disk. When you plug MultiDock into the HyperDeck External Disk port, it can see the SSDs and use them for recording. When using 2 HyperDeck Extreme units mounted side by side it’s possible to switch to 2 channel mode and use 2 disks with each HyperDeck. This also means it’s possible to use 2 computers with a single MultiDock, one using each channel, or multiple rack mount servers can access the same MultiDock. When an SSD is inserted in MultiDock, it can be seen on the HyperDeck Extreme on screen menus and you can select it for record and playback.
