NAB 2014 - LTO Thunderbolt

mLogic Showed a LTO Thunderbolt solution which looks like a neat solution for independent filmmakers. As a generator of lots of GB’s of footage, my eyes are always open for the best and fastest way to archive digital assets. I think this might be a good product for DIT’s in the field given that it can be DC powered.

Here it is from their website -

mTape Highlights

  • World’s first LTO-6 with Thunderbolt connectivity
  • Supports LTFS for drag and drop functionality
  • 2.5 TB Native storage capacity per tape cartridge (6.25TB compressed)
  • Compatible with industry leading backup and archiving software
  • Dual Thunderbolt ports enables daisy-chaining of Thunderbolt peripherals
  • External SAS port provides expansion for additional tape drives or other SAS devices
  • Compact, portable form-factor
  • DC powered - Enables use in any environment
  • Mac OSX and Windows compatible

Joker Boxes

Joker Boxes are one of those ideas that you see and it is so simple and cool that you wonder why nobody did it before. Imagine a Apple Box and a camera front box got together and made babies. Okay maybe you can’t. It is an apple box with a removable lid that lets you store goodies inside.

There are several types of lids. The one I thought was cool had a 3/8” threaded plate in the center so you can screw in a baby pin and make a pigeon plate out of it. 

They have a lid with a slate on the back side too. You have to go to their site to get the full idea. But it is a handy piece of kit to hold some essential supplies and give you some of the functionality of an apple box at the same time. Really handy for the shooters working out of a van. Ben Mesker is the creator, and he has a craftsman’s attention to detail. The quality of the boxes is very impressive.

VectorMount

Vectormount is an interesting GoPro mount for vehicles that “uses the natural motion of your vehicle to track the action for you”. It sort of looks like a weathervane but it also has a sliding weight to control the centrifugal force.

I visited their booth at NAB 2013 today and saw something really unique. The machine work is really well done and they have an aluminum version of the GoPro mount that is really stable. Also the car mounts and hardware are really well thought out, even if you don’t want to use the auto panning weathervane. The machined parts are as good as any GoPro custom work I have seen. But look at the demos on their website, the silicon dampened, auto-panning - weathervane deal works pretty well. Never seen this before!
