Overview

Overview

Blackmagic Design MultiDock 10G us an advanced SSD dock with (4) separate SSDs that can be accessed via a single high speed 10 Gb/s USB-C connection. Specifically designed for the film and television industry, Blackmagic MultiDock 10G features a rack mount design with an independent SATA driver chip on each disk to ensure fast data transfer speeds. Can be connected directly to computers for editing directly from media disks and also used with HyperDeck Extreme 8K HDR for recording and playback.

Ideal for editors, colorists, and media management on set or during post production, the MultiDock 10G can also be utilized for SSD compatibility on HyperDeck Extreme.

Premium All-Metal Rack Mount Design

Unlike cheap SSD docking cables, the Blackmagic MultiDock 10G is a compact 1 RU all metal design you can mount in any professional rack. Each disk slot features an illuminated disk indicator which illuminates when that disk is accessed. The design is also repairable; you can replace the socket connector in each slot.

No software to install is required. Simply plug into your USB‑C Mac or Windows computer. The rear panel features (2) USB‑C connections and a slide switch to allow selecting between using (4) disk slots on a single USB‑C connection, or (2) slots on each USB‑C connection for shared use. Plus, the built in AC power supply powers the 4 SSDs or hard disks at the same time. 

Dock & Edit

Blackmagic MultiDock supports up to (4) independent 2.5 inch SSDs so it's possible to edit directly from the disks you recorded onto. Simply plug in your SSDs and they will mount on your Mac OS X and Windows computers like regular hard disks. Due to the (4) independent disk slots MultiDock allows you to simultaneously mount all your media from a shoot. Blackmagic MultiDock 10G is ideal for accessing media recorded with your URSA Mini Pro Camera SSD recorder. It's also the perfect solution to add SSD compatibility to your HyperDeck Extreme 8K as it will let you interchange disks between HyperDeck Studio models.

You can even stripe multiple disks together for a super fast RAID array.

Fast Solid State Disks (SSDs)

Solid state disks are an ideal storage solution for television, because they are very fast and extremely large in size. Even a single solid state disk is much faster than a disk array because the memory based storage is accessed instantly, without mechanical lag, allowing a single SSD to record an entire event or film shoot. This provides you with reliable, fast recording and at a high speed for the largest video files.

With Blackmagic MultiDock 10G, it is possible to plug in any brand of 2.5" solid state disk. If you need high capacity backup at low cost, a regular 2.5" laptop hard disk can also be used. Best of all, the driver is built into the operating system; no extra software is needed. 

Extreme 10 Gb/s USB-C Speeds

Blackmagic MultiDock uses advanced USB‑C technology and delivers blazingly fast transfer speeds to your computer at up to 10 Gb/s with a single cable connection. With that bandwidth, you can handle the highest resolution video formats, including 8K in H.265 from HyperDeck Extreme 8K. MultiDock features a completely independent disk interface chip per disk slot to prevent slowdowns due to SATA bandwidth issues.

Even though all (4) disks interface with a single USB‑C connection, you can choose to split Blackmagic MultiDock 10G. That delivers (2) disks on one USB‑C connection and (2) disks on the second USB-C connection, which is ideal for dual computer use or for increased speed.

Flexible RAID Storage

Unlike consumer disk arrays, Blackmagic MultiDock is a compact and robust 1 rack unit all metal design you can quickly install into equipment racks. The built-in power supply ensures no power is used from your laptop batteries. The MultiDock 10G has enough power to run (4) high performance disks simultaneously for use in RAID configurations. Blackmagic MultiDock 10G even supports the RAID software built in to most operating systems. This means you can customize your disk array for your exact needs. Each disk slot also features an attractive, illuminated disk access indicator so you can see when your disks are being accessed.

Use Any Software

With fast SSDs, it is no longer necessary to use RAID arrays to achieve fast speeds for editing and an efficient post production workflow. MultiDock 10G allows you to add up to (4) media disks to editing software such as your DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro X, Premiere Pro CC, Avid Media Composer, and more. Blackmagic MultiDock 10G is also fantastic for backup. Insert mechanical hard disks into the slots and backup direct to the disks. Mechanical hard disks are used on laptop computers and offer large storage space at a low cost. If you're working with HyperDeck Extreme, you can also use Blackmagic MultiDock 10G to get compatibility with SSDs for interchange between HyperDeck models.

Compatible with HyperDeck Extreme 8K HDR

The secret to using Blackmagic MultiDock 10G with HyperDeck Extreme is the high speed USB‑C port on the rear panel called External Disk. When you plug MultiDock into your HyperDeck External Disk port, it can recognize the SSDs and record to them. When using 2 HyperDeck Extreme units mounted side-by-side it is possible to switch to 2-channel mode and use (2) disks with each HyperDeck. This also means it is possible to use (2) computers with a single MultiDock, one using each channel, or multiple rack mount servers can access the same MultiDock. When an SSD is inserted in MultiDock, it can be seen on the HyperDeck Extreme on screen menus and you can select it for record and playback.

Move Media Between Editing Systems

If you're working in large facilities, then Blackmagic MultiDock allows media disks to be relocated simply by unplugging the disks and walking it to a new location. That eliminates slow file copying and there is no need for complex network storage. You get the flexibility to change and move workflow as your client demands. You can even take your job from an editing room into a dedicated DaVinci Resolve color correction room and then move to a larger theater style room when your client arrives to review your job. With instant unplugging of media you eliminate clunky devices hanging off cables plus you can always access the disks right from the front of the rack equipment. 

NOTE: HyperDeck Extreme 8K, URSA Mini Pro, editing software, computers, third-party drives, and media sold separately.
