OWC at International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) in Amsterdam

OWC will showcase innovative storage, connectivity and expansion solutions for the media and entertainment industries, including the award-winning ThunderBlade.

OWC announced its plans to exhibit at the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) Show in Amsterdam. Known as the most influential annual event for professionals engaged in the creation, management, and delivery of electronic media, IBC 2019 runs Friday, September 13 through Tuesday, September 17 at the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Congress Centre. Please visit OWC in Hall 5 Stand # C10.

OWC continues its 31-year tradition of designing and producing powerful technological products that help creative professionals engage and create without limits. The Company will showcase its innovative storage, connectivity, software and expansion solutions for Mac and PC users, including three of its latest product offerings:

  • Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock – The Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock is the ultimate on-location, post-production solution, with an unrivaled combination of super-fast 10GB Ethernet, CFast and SD card readers, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, three USB 3.1 ports and full support for eSATA devices and drives. The Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock offers creators the ability to work with 4/8k RAW video and photo files at speed up to 600MB/s and the ability to daisy chain up to five additional Thunderbolt devices all while powering a laptop and managing USB 3.1 devices. 
Mercury Helios 3S
  • Mercury Helios 3S – The Mercury Helios 3S functions like a dock, allowing usage of a multitude of dedicated PCIe cards. With dual GB/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, the Mercury Helios 3S offers the bandwidth needed to support data-intensive 4k capture cards to speed up diverse video workflows. Built with a durable and rugged aluminum chassis, the Mercury Helios 3S is a simple solution to add high-performance PCIe cards made for video production, transcoding, audio processing, data storage and much more. 
OWC ThunderBlade
  • OWC ThunderBlade™ – In April 2019, the ThunderBlade Ultra High-Performance Gen 2 Thunderbolt 3 storage solution was awarded the 2019 BaM Award for the “Store” category by the IABM at the 2019 NAB show in Las Vegas. With dual Thunderbolt 3 ports users can daisy-chain up to five additional ThunderBlades, and by connecting more than one drive with SoftRAID, transfer speeds can reach up to 3800MB/s. The newest ThunderBlade can complete a 1TB content transfer in under 4 and a half minutes.

OWC has been growing rapidly in Europe and earlier this year established its first physical presence on the continent with a large distribution, manufacturing, and support center in Belgium. This, along with the support of OWC’s hundreds of local European resellers and distributors, enables OWC to substantially improve the availability of all its solutions, decrease delivery times, and enhance the localized service and support that has always set OWC apart from the rest.

  • When connecting several disks, are there hubs with lots of USB 3.1 Type C Generation 2 (10 Gbps) ports (for instance, 10 ports). Connecting Mac via Thunderbolt 3 o USB 3.1 Type C Gen 2? I can find such hubs for USB 3.0, but not for USB 3.1.

  • Bring external portable SSD to boot Mac and work from it all day long (NO RAID inside!!!) with capacities of 4, 8 & 16 TB. With USB 3 Type-C Generation 2 (10 Gbps) and Thunderbolt 3 (40 Gbps) ports. We need thousands for our University.
