Ingest, edit, archive and playback multiple steams of uncompressed 8-bit and 10-bit HD video with relative ease and lightning fast responsiveness. Supports up to 4TB drives in each hot-swappable drive bay, giving you up to 16TB of raw storage (Approx. 12TB of available storage in RAID 5) making the ARC-5026 the best in class solution around.



A revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-performance data devices and high-resolution displays through a single, compact port. It sets new standards for speed, flexibility and simplicity. Thunderbolt gives you two channels on the same connector with 10Gbps of throughput in both directions, so you can move data to and from peripherals up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than with Firewire 800.
