NAB 2012: Sonnet Technologies debuts DIT Station Rogue

Sonnet will demonstrate the DIT Station Rogue, a portable and compact on-set data management and playback workstation featuring Sonnet’s Thunderbolt expansion, media ingest, and storage products. The Rogue’s design integrates Sonnet’s Echo Express Pro Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for PCIe Cards with a RED ROCKET transcoding and playout card (or popular video I/O cards). These devices are connected to an enclosed 13-inch MacBook Pro platform via a Thunderbolt cable, with full RAID storage provided by Sonnet’s vibration-isolated Fusion F3 storage system. Also included is Sonnet’s Echo ExpressCard Thunderbolt Adapter to ingest files from SxS cards, and readers for CompactFlash cards and REDMAG 1.8-inch SSD drives. The Rogue marries processing and ingest capabilities with an onboard WiFi router, an iPad mount, and external I/O interfaces. This combination enables users to receive footage directly from the camera and download it through three ready-connected media readers built into the deck; perform data management tasks; view full-resolution playback; perform on-set image adjustment; and wirelessly deliver dailies. SL8713
