Truly a match made in heaven. Now with the new Red Rocket X and the newly designed Echo Express III with Thunderbolt 2, speeds for transcoding have reached new and out this world speeds.
RED ROCKET X
Optimized for the 6K RED DRAGON® sensor, this product is designed to accelerate the process of your R3D workflow, regardless of resolution. Using Dual DisplayPort + Dual HD-SDI 1.5G/3G for video output, RED ROCKET-X® provides real time 4K playback directly to your 4K display or projector.
Compared to the previous RED ROCKET, RED ROCKET-X processes and transcodes files up to 5x faster. The RED ROCKET-X supports Stereo 3D video output. A redesigned chassis works to protect the card, which uses a Full-length PCIe x16 requiring external 6-pin (75W) PCIe power for installation in your Mac or PC. The new RED ROCKET-X no longer requires or supports the Breakout Box.
Echo Express III Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis
Use Up to Three PCIe Cards with Computers Lacking Expansion Slots
Today's ultra-light notebooks, mini, and all-in-one desktop computers now have tremendous processing power–power that many thought would only be possible in full-size workstation or large desktop computers. Smaller in size and more portable, they're very desirable. For pros in the creative fields, processing power alone is not enough. A prime example is the new Mac Pro®. Proven to be a processing powerhouse and packed with Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 ports, it lacks the PCIe expansion slots necessary to install specialty cards to connect various video and audio inputs, for transcoding data, and to connect to high-speed storage and networks. With the Echo Express III-D, Sonnet has created a solution that leverages the paradigm shift enabled by Thunderbolt technology, allowing PCIe expansion slots to be connected outside a computer. This desktop Thunderbolt-to-PCIe card expansion chassis makes it possible for you to connect three professional video capture, audio interface, SAS or SATA HBA, 16Gb or 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10Gigabit Ethernet, and RAID controller PCIe cards to any Mac® with a Thunderbolt port.
