TerraMaster’s 16-bay D16 Thunderbolt 3 is compatible with 3.5' SATA disks and 2.5' SSDs, allowing professionals to capitalise on a total storage capacity of up to 256TB. As a result, you can be assured the device gives you the tools you need to overcome any storage challenge.
Drawing on a pair of Thunderbolt 3 interfaces (40 Gbps) and a hardware RAID controller, the D16 Thunderbolt 3 can operate at transfer speeds of 2100 MB/s under a 7200 RPM high-speed hard disk and RAID 0 array mode. Under RAID 5, the device can achieve a speed of 1800 MB/s.
Enjoy Rapid Video Workflows
The time needed for virtually every aspect of the post-production workflow falls when using the D16 Thunderbolt 3. At lightning speed, users can transfer several hours of footage from a Blackmagic® device to Adobe® Premiere Pro. In turn, with uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video, users can edit the ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 4444 XQ, and other data streams. Thumbnails and preview rendering are significantly more responsive when using large items with numerous high-definition clips.
Using one cable, Thunderbolt 3 enables users to daisy-chain more than five devices to their computer. As a result, users can achieve an enormous 1PB capacity by linking together six D16 Thunderbolt 3 devices.
Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 2 Compatibility (for Mac only)
If your Mac has Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 2 ports, you can capitalise on the D16 Thunderbolt 3 to achieve high-end transfer rates. With Apple’s Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter (not sold with the D16 Thunderbolt 3), compatibility between the D16 Thunderbolt 3 and earlier Thunderbolt technologies is straightforwardly achieved.
Perfectly Suited for the Most Demanding Video Professionals
With its aluminium casing, metal build, and 120-mm inbuilt temperature-controlled smart fans, full heat dissipation of the D16 Thunderbolt 3 is assured for those video professionals working long hours.
Create the Smartest Workspace
A key feature of Thunderbolt 3 is its bandwidth capacity, which has been doubled since Thunderbolt 2. At the same time, the D16 Thunderbolt 3 benefits from a HD DP digital interface and a pair of Thunderbolt 3 interfaces. By daisy-chaining two 4K displays (or one 5K display) to the D16 Thunderbolt 3, users can augment their workspace in the smartest and most suitable way for their professional needs. Additionally, using Thunderbolt 3 connections, users can even power a compatible notebook computer.
Multiple RAID Supports
The D16 Thunderbolt 3 can operate with RAID 0, 1, 5, 50, and 10, as well as JBOD disk array modes for all your application needs. This underpins the all-important concern for guaranteed data security, and it ensures that your storage capacity is utilised in the most efficient way possible.
Professional and Safe
Replacing lost content is inconvenient, costly, and, ultimately, unworkable for all professionals. Therefore, with the D16 Thunderbolt 3, TerraMaster has not comprised on its use of state-of-the-art storage technologies to ensure data safety and security. Now, freed from concerns about inadequately protected data, users can focus on what matters to you.
The Ideal Companion for All Professionals
Given its compactness, its large storage capacity, and its lightning speed, the D16 Thunderbolt 3 is ideally suited for the most demanding applications, including 4K video editing, as well as seamless 4K streaming. Other users, especially those with strict speed and storage requirements, will find a valuable partner in this device.
