DIT Station new, portable on-set data/playback workstation 


DIT Station has introduced the DIT Station Rogue4, the newest version of the company's portable and compact on-set data management and playback workstation.

The Rogue4 is purportedly faster than ever before, with Sonnet Technologies' built-in Thunderbolt expansion, media ingest, and storage solutions offering performance up to 900 MB/s. Sonnet and DIT Station will demonstrate the DIT Station Rogue4 in the Sonnet Technologies booth SL10924 at the 2013 NAB Show. 

Housed in a military-grade case with custom ventilation, the new DIT Station Rogue4 provides a fast PCIe and Thunderbolt backbone for a range of on-site digital intermediate (DI) tasks. The Rogue4 works exclusively on the 15-inch MacBook Pro Retina platform, integrating multiple Sonnet Echo Express Thunderbolt-to-PCIe Expansion Chassis with video I/O cards for tasks such as transcoding and playout. Multiple Sonnet Tempo SSD Pro 6Gb PCIe adapter cards, each holding two 2.5-inch SSDs, provide high-performance onboard Thunderbolt storage.

A Sonnet Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb four-port eSATA card supports up to four high-performance eSATA shuttle drives, plus readers for CompactFlash cards, SDHC cards, REDMAG 1.8-inch SSDs, and RED Digital Cinema's new RED MINI-MAG cards. Also on board is Sonnet's Echo ExpressCard® Pro Thunderbolt adapter to ingest files from SxS cards. 

These features combine with the Rogue4's wireless connectivity, iPad mount, and full I/O interfaces. Users can not only perform basic data wrangling tasks, but also perform lightning-speed transcoding, full-resolution 2D/3D side-by-side playback, on-set image review and adjustment, and wireless delivery of dailies right out of the case via the onboard Wi-Fi terminal, according to Martin Christien, CEO and founder, DIT Station.

Facilitated by Sonnet's Thunderbolt technology solutions, the Rogue4's Thunderbolt connectivity enables the workstation to achieve speeds well beyond not just conventional laptop-based workflows, but even Mac Pro tower-based workflows, offering ultra-fast connectivity and incomparable portability, he adds.

The new-and-improved DIT Station Rogue4 will be on display at the 2013 NAB Show in Sonnet's booth, SL10924, and in ASSIMILATE's booth, SL12705, where Christien and his team will also make special presentations. For more information go to www.sonnettech.com/product/thunderbolt/index.html .
