TerraMaster’s 16-bay D16 Thunderbolt 3 is compatible with 3.5″ SATA disks and 2.5″ SSDs, allowing professionals to capitalise on a total storage capacity of up to 256TB. As a result, you can be assured the device gives you the tools you need to overcome any storage challenge.
Drawing on a pair of Thunderbolt 3 interfaces (40 Gbps) and a hardware RAID controller, the D16 Thunderbolt 3 can operate at transfer speeds of 2100 MB/s under a 7200 RPM high-speed hard disk and RAID 0 array mode. Under RAID 5, the device can achieve a speed of 1800 MB/s.
The time needed for virtually every aspect of the post-production workflow falls when using the D16 Thunderbolt 3. At lightning speed, users can transfer several hours of footage from a Blackmagic® device to Adobe® Premiere Pro. In turn, with uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video, users can edit the ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 4444 XQ, and other data streams. Thumbnails and preview rendering are significantly more responsive when using large items with numerous high-definition clips.
Using one cable, Thunderbolt 3 enables users to daisy-chain more than five devices to their computer. As a result, users can achieve an enormous 1PB capacity by linking together six D16 Thunderbolt 3 devices.
