Sonnet Fusion rolls out portable RAID storage for HD video capture
Sonnet Technologies has launched the Fusion F2 portable RAID storage system, which provides speed, reliability, ruggedness and convenience for on-location video capture or remote use when the grid power is unavailable.
Fusion F2 features 640GB of storage using two 2.5in drives mounted side by side in a rugged enclosure measuring 5.9in x 6.2in x 0.72in. The Fusion F2 delivers data transfer rates up to twice as fast as a pair of FireWire 800 drives.
Sonnet's Fusion F2 features two eSATA data connections and is designed for use with the Sonnet Tempo SATA ExpressCard/34 adapter for MacBook Pro and Windows notebooks. By connecting via SATA interface, Fusion F2 supports portable video capture in conjunction with AJA Video Systems' Io HD, which requires dedicated use of FireWire bandwidth.
