Sonnet Announces Upgraded Compact Three-Slot Thunderbolt 3 to PCIe Card Expansion System

New auxiliary power connector enables support for entire line of high-performance AJA KONA audio and video I/O cards

What's New:

Sonnet Technologies today announced the launch of the Echo™ Express SE IIIe, the newest member of the company's award-winning Echo Express family of Thunderbolt™ 3 to PCI Express® (PCIe®) card expansion systems. The Echo Express SE IIIe is a compact desktop chassis that enables the use of up to three high-performance PCIe cards with computers equipped with Thunderbolt 3 ports. Replacing the popular Echo Express SE III, the SE IIIe supports AJA's complete family of KONA audio and video I/O solutions, including KONA 5, and has been upgraded with the addition of an auxiliary power connector to support cards that require more power to operate, and a new cooling fan for quieter operation.

"A portable video capture and playback setup is a necessity today for most video pros, and the Echo Express SE IIIe, with support for AJA KONA PCIe cards, provides great flexibility. The new auxiliary power connector is an exciting addition, allowing professionals to harness the power of Thunderbolt 3 connectivity with AJA KONA 5 with a smaller form factor PCIe card enclosure."

- Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems
