Expansion System for PCIe Cards
Echo Express III-D (Thunderbolt 3 Edition)

Panasonic AW-UE4W

3-slot Desktop Thunderbolt 3
Expansion System for PCIe Cards
For professionals working within the creative fields, a computer’s processing power alone is not quite sufficient to get the job done. A good example would be the most recent MacBook Pro, which, whilst it offers fantastic performance, is lacking in the PCIe expansion slots necessary to support the speciality cards that connect pro video and audio inputs, transcode data, and connect to high-speed storage and networks. Instead of slots, these computers have Thunderbolt 3 ports to support their peripherals.

Sonnet’s ‘Echo Express III-D Thunderbolt Edition is a professional grade, desktop Thunderbolt 3 to PCIe card expansion system to enable you to connect three full-length PCIe cards simultaneously.

Thunderbolt 3 Connection

back

vast connectivity optionsVia a simple Thunderbolt 3 connection, add professional PCIe cards (three full-height, single-width cards, or one double-width card plus one single-width card) including video capture, audio interface, SAS or SATA HBA, 16Gb or 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, and RAID controllers.

Media Composer • Pro Tools

back

100% Avid ApprovedSonnet’s Echo Express III-D (Thunderbolt3 Edition) is Avid qualified. It has undergone thorough testing and has been approved for use with Pro Tools HD 12 software, and is qualified by the Avid Audio group for use with Pro Tools HDX and HD Native systems and separately qualified by the Avid Video group for use with Media Composer/Symphony with many current and older Mac computers with Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 2 ports.
