MOTU takes advantage of Thunderbolt

LAS VEGAS — Cambridge, MA-based MOTU is at NAB demonstrating video capture and monitoring workflows for Final Cut Pro X and Avid Media Composer 6 using the MOTU HDX-SDI video interface with high-speed Thunderbolt technology.

MOTU (www.motu.com) is showcasing broadcast-quality, Thunderbolt-based workstations featuring Final Cut Pro X and Media Composer running on a MacBook Pro, tethered to a 27-inch Apple Thunderbolt Display, CalDigit T-series high-speed storage devices (single drive and RAID), and the HDX-SDI Thunderbolt video interface.

"High-performance Thunderbolt technology takes desktop nonlinear editing to a whole new level," says Jim Cooper, MOTU marketing director. "With convenient plug-and-play setup, massive bandwidth to support high-resolution workflows like 10-bit uncompressed HD, and the option to daisy-chain multiple devices for flexible system expansion, the HDX-SDI provides the most comprehensive video and audio I/O available for a complete Thunderbolt-based desktop video editing system."
