S.two Flashdock for 444 uncompressed delivery

S.two Ships FlashDock

S.two Corporation has added the FlashDock transfer station to its family of uncompressed digital film production solutions. The FlashDock is a portable editorial ingest and archival station for FlashMag solid-state magazines from the OB-1, S.two’s onboard digital film recorder.

Supporting uncompressed 4:4:4 RGB and raw data — including ArriRaw — the FlashDock provides multiple transfer target interfaces, including dual-link HD-SDI, eSATA, USB 2.0, Gbit Ethernet, RS422 and SAS. FCP-style XML and Avid-style ALE metadata files are generated and made available over Ethernet or to a USB device for automated editorial ingest. An optional Expansion Chassis provides two half-height LTO3/4 drive bays and is powered from the FlashDock for true on-location archival backup capability. The FlashDock is capable of operating on 100-240-volt AC or 24-volt DC power, and is designed for use on remote shoot locations, in the studio or in a post facility.

“This is the workflow component that our OB-1 customers have been looking for,” says Chris Romine, president of S.two. “It is economical, field portable and facility friendly, and satisfies both dailies generation and backup requirements with a user-friendly touch-screen LCD interface.”

The first FlashDock production units have begun shipping to sales and marketing partner Band Pro Film & Digital.

Rogue Digital supplies the Flashdock for its OB-1 systems.
