AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - Sep 11, 2015) - Today at the 2015 IBC Show in Amsterdam, PROMISE Technology unveiled a new CFast 2.0 Reader Pod for its Pegasus2 R2+. With both Thunderbolt™ 2 and USB 3.0 interfaces, the combination of Pegasus2 R2+ and the new CFast 2.0 Reader Pod provides a convenient and rapid way to transfer 4K content from high-end cameras via CFast 2.0 media. The new CFast 2.0 Reader Pod is capable of supporting speeds up to 500 MB/s, providing the throughput that professional and advanced amateur photographers and videographers need to improve the efficiency of their workflow. With Pegasus2 R2+ and the new portable Reader Pod, creative professionals working in the post production, broadcast, and photography industries can have their Thunderbolt storage ready for CFast 2.0 4K content from next generation high resolution cameras and are able to access CFast 2.0 media at their desk or on the go.

Pegasus2 R2+ is a Thunderbolt 2 hardware RAID 0/1 storage solution with USB 3.0 that includes two hot-swappable hard disk drives and a versatile media bay that now offers users the choice between four different interchangeable pods for convenient media exchange -- a CF/SD Reader, SSD Reader, a 1TB HDD Pod and the new CFast 2.0 Reader Pod. Each pod comes with USB 3.0 Micro-B for independent access, providing the convenience to take a Pod and work elsewhere away from the editing suite.
