Designed for Film and Television
Blackmagic Cloud Pod will transform customer's work! It's perfect for film and television because you can record onto USB-C flash disks and then use the Blackmagic Cloud Pod to make the disk available on the network for multiple editors and colorists to use. Depending on the brand of USB-C flash disk used, it even handles massive 12K Blackmagic RAW digital cinema files! USB-C flash disks are amazing because they are affordable, have zero seek times and you can buy them in any office supply store. Dropbox and Google Drive sync allows you to place pods in different locations so everyone can have a fast local copy of their files. Then each location gets the fastest editing experience possible.
Portable and Quiet Design
Blackmagic Cloud Pod features an extremely small and thin design because it doesn't have any storage internally! It?s also very quiet and very portable! It features two USB-C ports so it can host two separate USB disks on your network at the same time. The 10G Ethernet port means you get extremely high performance. There is also an HDMI monitoring output so you can watch a live graphic view of the storage operating on a TV or monitor. Along the front there is a status light that shows disk activity, so you know when the USB-C disk is being accessed. There's also a DC power connection so you can use the included power supply, or run it from a battery when it?s used on location.
Live Sync to Dropbox and Google Drive
Now you can setup a local cache of your Dropbox and Google Drive files! This makes working much faster because files are instantly available without needing to be downloaded from the internet. Blackmagic Cloud Pod will constantly work to stay in sync. You can save space on your computer by moving cached Dropbox and Google Drive files to the Blackmagic Cloud Pod so everyone on your network can share them. You can even sync multiple Blackmagic Cloud Pods or Cloud Stores via Dropbox and Google Drive so people in different geographic locations can collaborate without latency because everyone has a local copy of the files. That makes it a perfect home or offsite solution.
Distribute Files Globally
With support for Dropbox and Google Drive sync, you can use multiple Blackmagic Cloud Pod units to share files globally. That?s important when working with large datasets or massive digital film and video files. These files need to be constantly accessed dozens of times a second, so most internet connections are too slow to handle it. While the internet has too much latency to access large files remotely, you can use it to sync these files. Syncing the files to local storage totally eliminates delays in accessing them. That's because everyone has a local copy of the files on their network. Blackmagic Cloud Pod will constantly sync files, even if your computer is turned off!
Real Time Monitoring
The most exciting feature is the HDMI monitoring output! Simply connect a TV or computer monitor to get a live status of the Blackmagic Cloud Pod! The storage map shows a graphic representation of the memory core and real time read and write access happening for the connected users. It?s quite mesmerizing to watch! There are also graphs that show you the data transfers on the Ethernet connection. The main space indicator shows you the capacity of the two USB-C disks and how much is currently being used. You can also add a custom name to the pod! The status for each Dropbox and Google Drive connection is also shown. It's even possible to see connected users and the power status.
