Turn virtually any USB Type-C disk into a network storage drive with the Cloud Pod from Blackmagic Design. The Cloud Pod can host two USB Type-C drives using its two 5 Gb/s USB Type-C ports, then provides network access using its 10GbE RJ45 port, which lets you share media with up to 50 simultaneous users on your network. Furthermore, Dropbox Live Sync lets you distribute files globally and syncs to your Cloud Pod automatically, while an HDMI monitoring output lets you keep track of your Cloud Pod’s status, including a storage map, speed graphics, sync, active users, and power status. Compatible with Windows and Mac, the Cloud Pod lets you work with broadcast-quality video in DaVinci Resolve. When paired with the proper storage media, 12K raw workflows are supported. Included is a universal power supply with international adapters.
The Blackmagic Cloud Pod features an extremely small and thin design because it doesn’t have any internal storage. It’s also very quiet and very portable. It features two USB Type-C ports so it can host two separate USB disks on your network at the same time. The 10G Ethernet port means you get extremely high performance. There is also an HDMI monitoring output so you can watch a live graphic view of the storage operating on a TV or monitor. Along the front there is a status light that shows disk activity, so you know when the USB Type-C disk is being accessed. There’s also a DC power connection so you can use the included power supply, or run it from a battery when it’s used on location.
The Blackmagic Cloud Pod is also perfect for film and television because you can record onto USB Type-C flash disks and then use the Blackmagic Cloud Pod to make the disk available on the network for multiple editors and colorists to use. Depending on the brand of USB Type-C flash disk used, it even handles massive 12K Blackmagic raw digital cinema files.
