/ Hard to Keep Up with the Demands of 4K Video Editing? TerraMaster Provides Thunderbolt 3 RAID Storage and 10GbE NAS Solutions
With the popularity of high-resolution 4K videos, professional video editors need to handle a large number of massive video files. 4K video footage takes up a significant amount of storage space, and editing with high frame rates and high bitrates requires higher transfer speeds and storage throughput. Therefore, choosing the right storage solution is crucial to ensure an efficient workflow and seamless editing experience.
Capacity is an important consideration when choosing a storage solution. Due to the enormous size of 4K video footage, you need to ensure that the selected storage solution provides enough capacity to store your project files, raw footage, and finished videos. This way, you don't have to worry about running out of storage space and can freely create and edit.
Transfer speed is another crucial aspect. 4K video editing involves processing a large amount of high-resolution video data, so fast data transfer speeds are essential. Choosing a storage solution with fast data transfer capabilities ensures that you can quickly read and write large files, play and edit 4K videos in real-time, and improve work efficiency.
Data security is also a factor that cannot be overlooked. Data security is crucial in 4K video editing projects. Choosing a storage solution with reliable data protection features, such as using appropriate RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) modes, provides data redundancy and protection, so even in the event of hardware failure or data corruption, your data remains protected.
Furthermore, compatibility is a key consideration. Ensuring that the selected storage solution is compatible with the editing software and hardware platforms you use is essential. This includes operating system compatibility (such as Windows, macOS, etc.) as well as good integration with video editing software (such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, etc.). This way, you can seamlessly integrate the storage solution into your working environment and improve work efficiency.
As a professional brand focused on innovative storage products, TerraMaster provides two high-speed 4K editing storage solutions for video editors: the Thunderbolt 3 RAID Storage series and the 10GbE NAS series. Both storage solutions are well-suited for professionals with high demands in video editing, offering excellent performance and reliability.
Thunderbolt 3 RAID Storage Series
TerraMaster Thunderbolt 3 RAID Storage series is designed for professional users who require extremely fast transfer speeds. Among them, the D16 Thunderbolt 3 and D8-332 are equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, with transfer speeds of up to 40Gbps, ensuring fast data transfer and editing performance. They also support multiple RAID configurations, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 50, 10, and JBOD modes, providing high data protection and fault tolerance for editing studios.
Using the D16 Thunderbolt 3 and D8-332 can significantly shorten the time required for almost all tasks in post-production workflows. In a short amount of time, you can ingest hours of raw footage from Blackmagic® cinema cameras and place them into Adobe® Premiere® Pro. Then, you can edit multiple streams of ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 4444 XQ, and uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit videos. For large projects with a lot of high-definition edits, the response for thumbnails and preview rendering will be much faster.
These two storage solutions also offer excellent scalability. Thunderbolt 3 allows you to connect up to six devices to your computer in a daisy-chain configuration using a single cable, so you can connect up to six D16 Thunderbolt 3 or D8-332 devices, providing you with a tremendous storage capacity.
TerraMaster 10GbE NAS Series
TerraMaster 10GbE NAS series is designed to meet the needs of high-speed data transfer and collaborative editing requirements. They are equipped with dual SFP+ 10Gb ethernet interfaces and dual 2.5GbE ports, and can provide up to 20Gb of transfer bandwidth through network aggregation using Link Aggregation. By building a 10GbE network, multiple Windows/Mac workstations can simultaneously connect to the device for collaborative operations such as multi-track 4K footage editing, special effects creation, video composition, and importing/exporting of footage.
Taking U8-450, T9-450, and T12-450 as examples, these three products provide 8, 9, and 12 drive bays respectively, offering storage capacities of up to 176TB, 198TB, and 264TB. Moreover, all 10GbE products support different operating systems and various video editing software such as Edius, Adobe Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, and Final Cut Pro.
Through these storage devices, team members can easily share and access storage resources, enabling collaborative work and improving work efficiency. Whether it's a small-scale or large-scale 4K video editing project, TerraMaster 10GbE NAS series can meet your needs and provide high-speed and reliable storage performance.
Whether you are involved in home video editing or professional video production, TerraMaster Thunderbolt 3 RAID Storage series and 10GbE NAS series can meet your 4K editing requirements. These storage solutions offer excellent performance, reliable data protection, and flexible scalability. Choose TerraMaster to provide robust support for your video editing work and achieve efficient 4K video editing.
