ExpressBox 3T provides an ‘outside-the-box’ solution for using PCIe cards with Thunderbolt™ 2-equipped computers. High-performance work flows are possible by connecting a Thunderbolt 2-equipped computer to a Thunderbolt™ 2 expansion chassis containing PCIe cards such as video capture, media transcoding, audio processing, and fast data storage.
