Sonnet Products at BVE 2012:

The cost-effective Sonnet Qio(TM) E3 professional SxS(TM) media reader
As the latest member of the Sonnet Qio(TM) series of professional media readers, the Qio E3 offers a cost-effective, high-speed alternative to stand-alone card readers for videographers and studios alike. The E3 is the first three-slot SxS(TM) memory card reader available, includes an integrated two-port 6 Gb/s eSATA interface for connecting external storage systems, and doubles as a bus expansion system for ExpressCard(R)/34 adapter cards. The Qio E3 provides users with the ability to transfer data concurrently from three SxS cards for Sony(R) XDCAM(TM) EX professional HD camcorders, thereby dramatically increasing efficiency. Compatible with Mac OS(R) X v10.6.8+ (including Lion(R)), Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 7, Vista(R), and Server 2008, the Qio E3 connects to a computer through an included ExpressCard/34 interface adapter card for notebooks or a PCIe 2.0 interface adapter card for desktops.

Little speed reader -- Sonnet's DiO(TM) Pro CompactFlash(R) and SDXC(TM) USB 3.0 Media Reader
Sonnet's DiO(TM) Pro CompactFlash(R) and SDXC(TM) USB 3.0 Media Reader quickly transfers files from CompactFlash (CF), SDXC, and SDHC memory cards to a computer on location, in the studio, or at the office. With one slot each for CF and SD media, DiO has the ability to transfer data from the fastest professional memory cards at much higher speeds than USB 2.0 card readers, making for a significantly more convenient and efficient workflow. This handy device also supports concurrent and card-to-card file transfers.

New Fusion(TM) F2QR portable two-drive hardware RAID storage system
Based on the multiple-award-winning Fusion(TM) F2, Sonnet's new Fusion F2QR portable two-drive hardware RAID storage system is recognized for its performance, reliability, whisper-quiet operation, and shock-resistant characteristics. This compact device features two 2.5-inch, 1TB hard drives; a built-in hardware RAID controller for configuring the drives; and a quad interface with eSATA, FireWire(R) 800, and USB 2.0 ports for flexible compatibility. The Fusion F2QR delivers great performance with up to 160 MB/s read and 100 MB/s write data transfer rates and is bus-powered by a FireWire port on the computer.

Echo(TM) ExpressCard(R)/34 Thunderbolt(TM) Adapter -- now shipping
The Sonnet Echo(TM) ExpressCard(R)/34 Thunderbolt(TM) Adapter adds an ExpressCard/34 slot to any computer to which it's connected, extending the capabilities of Thunderbolt-technology-equipped Macs like never before. The adapter enables users of computers equipped with a Thunderbolt port, including the latest Apple(R) iMac(R), Mac(R) mini, MacBook Air(R), and MacBook(R) Pro models, to connect seamlessly with compatible ExpressCard/34 cards from Sonnet and other manufacturers. ExpressCard/34 adapters offer users additional connectivity and functionality beyond what is available through their computers' stock configuration.

Echo(TM) Express PCIe 2.0 Expansion Chassis with Thunderbolt(TM) Ports
The hotly anticipated Echo(TM) Express PCIe 2.0 Expansion Chassis with Thunderbolt(TM) Ports enables users to plug in high-performance PCI Express(R) 2.0 adapter cards to any computer with a Thunderbolt port. Adapters such as professional video capture cards, digital audio cards, 8Gb Fibre Channel cards, 10Gb Ethernet cards, and RAID controller cards are examples of the adapters that may be used. Available in two sizes, the standard Echo Express PCIe 2.0 Expansion Chassis with Thunderbolt Ports supports one half-length, double-width, x16 (x4 mode) slot PCIe 2.0 card, and the XL model supports two full-length cards. Both models have integrated universal power supplies, fans to cool the cards, and two Thunderbolt ports to support daisy chaining up to six devices to the host computer.

Xmac(TM) mini Server 1U Rackmount PCIe 2.0 Expansion System with Thunderbolt(TM) Ports
Sonnet's Xmac(TM) mini Server (previously known as RackMac mini Xserver) 1U Rackmount PCIe 2.0 Expansion System with two Thunderbolt(TM) Ports mounts a Mac(R) mini inside a specially designed enclosure that also contains two x16 (x4 mode) PCIe 2.0 slots, a 150-W power supply, plus an installed Gigabit Ethernet card. This system enables users to connect two PCIe 2.0 adapter cards (one half-length and one full-length) to the Mac mini via locking Thunderbolt cables while allowing the connection of additional Thunderbolt peripherals to the daisy chain Thunderbolt port.

Fusion(TM) RX1600 Vfibre(TM) Video Editing Shared Storage System
Available in 16TB, 32TB, or 48TB configurations to start, the Fusion(TM) RX1600 Vfibre(TM) delivers amazing data throughput for video editing workgroups. Capable of supporting 4K workflows, this system delivers more streams to more users with up to 16 ports for 8Gb Fibre Channel client connections, plus a 10Gb Ethernet interface. The Fusion RX1600 Vfibre includes a metadata controller, Tiger Technologies' metaSAN server software, redundant and hot-swappable storage, power supplies, fans, and server control drives out of the box. This video editing shared storage system offers heterogeneous operating system support for Mac OS(R) X, Windows(R), and Linux(R) users and easy expandability to up to 384TB of storage -- all backed by Sonnet's five-year pro storage warranty.

Company Quote:
 At BVE 2012 we're looking forward to showing attendees how our innovative and cost-effective storage solutions, pro media readers, and Thunderbolt(TM) solutions can dramatically improve efficiencies in all types of mobile and studio broadcast workflows. For example, our new Sonnet Echo(TM) ExpressCard(R)/34 Thunderbolt(TM) Adapter gives users unprecedented flexibility in changing interfaces and devices when needed, and our Fusion RX1600 Vfibre system is ideal for providing multiple users with seamless, simultaneous, high-speed access to stored video assets.
-- Robert Farnsworth, CEO of Sonnet Technologies.

Cobalt Digital Targets Need for Multiple Video Feeds with openGear 9905 MPx Multi-Channel Processor Posted: 12/10/2021
Cobalt and reg; Digital Targets Need for Multiple Video Feeds with openGear and reg; 9905 MPx Multi-Channel Processor

Cobalt® Digital, an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of award-winning edge devices for live video production and master control, and a founding partner in the openGear® initiative, has answered the need for handling and processing multiple video feeds with its 9905-MPx multi-channel processor. The 9905-MPx is a next-generation advanced scaler/frame openGear synchronizer developed in direct response to customer needs for a single module that supports four independent signal paths. The card was highlighted during a press briefing held virtually on October 6th and hosted by Suzana Brady, Cobalt’s SVP Worldwide Sales & Marketing, who noted that the 9905-MPx was developed in response to customer requests for increased density, unprecedented multi-input support, and enhanced flexibility. The event also featured presentations by Dr. Ciro Noronha, EVP of Engineering, and Ryan Wallenberg, VP of Engineering. The 9905-MPx, an audio/video processor for baseband digital signals, is capable of handling up to four independent 3G signals in a single, dense, cost-effective package that provides all common broadcast processing functions without any quality compromises. The card includes individual up/down/cross conversion scalers that are specifically designed for broadcast video formats, with full ARC control suitable for conversions to/from 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. The multi-path design offers discrete AES and MADI audio embedding/routing/mixing/de-embedding to any of the four processing paths. Standard 3D LUT features and available color correction accommodate SDR and HDR processing for downstream HDR systems, on a per-channel basis. The card also supports per-channel logo insertion, as well as ancillary data insertion/extraction.
