G-Technology has added four new products to its Evolution (ev) Series, an ecosystem of docking stations and interchangeable and expandable external hard drives and accessories. The new products include the G-Speed Studio XL with two ev Series bay adapters, the ev Series Reader Red Mini-Mag edition, the G-Dock ev Solo and the ev Series FireWire adapter.
The G-Speed Studio XL (pictured right) with two ev Series bay adapters is an eight-bay Thunderbolt 2 storage solution that comes with six enterprise-class hard drives and two integrated ev Series bay adapters for greater capacity and performance. The integrated ev Series bay adapters accommodate all ev Series drive modules, enabling cross-functionality with other products in the Evolution Series. Configurable in RAID-0, -1, -5, -6 and -10, it supports multistream compressed 4K workflows with extremely large volumes of data at transfer rates of up to 1,200 MB/sec and the ability to daisy chain via dual Thunderbolt 2 ports.
Designed to optimize a Red camera workflow, the ev Series Reader Red Mini-Mag edition uses high-performance connectivity for fast Red footage transfers and backup. Users can transfer content quickly from a Red Mini-Mag media card onto any G-dock ev docking station or G-Speed Studio XL with ev Series bay adapters. The ev Series all-terrain case, which is watertight, adds protection when shooting on the go.
For those who already have several G-Drive ev modules, the G-Dock ev Solo (pictured below) is a USB 3.0 docking solution for shared environments, including studios, labs and classrooms. Users can transfer, edit and back up an existing Evolution Series hard drive module by inserting it into the G-Dock ev Solo. When paired with the G-Drive ev, G-Drive ev Raw, G-Drive ev 220 or G-Drive ev SSD, the G-Dock ev Solo can store up to 2TB of data and transfer content at rates up to 400MB/sec.
Finally, the new ev Series FireWire adapter attaches to an ev Series drive, allowing connection to an existing FireWire 800 port. Users can connect a G-Drive ev Raw, G-Drive ev, G-Drive ev 220 or G-Drive ev SSD to a computer via one of two FireWire 800 ports or daisy chain them.
The G-Speed Studio XL with two ev Series bay adapters, the ev Series Reader Red Mini-Mag edition and the G-Dock ev Solo will be available in October. The ev Series FireWire adapter is available now.
