"The integration between the PROMISE Pegasus Thunderbolt line of storage and our market-leading Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 demonstrates our commitment to providing our customers with even more efficiency and flexibility," said Bill Roberts, director of professional video and audio product management, Adobe. "Whether in studio or at a remote location, the power of our two products provides professionals boosted productivity with the world's most robust cross-platform editing workflow."

PROMISE Thunderbolt-enabled products improve workflow for creative professionals. Here's how:

  • Enables low-latency, high-speed bandwidth to portables and desktops to allow for editing data-rate hungry video streams that were never before possible on systems in this class;
  • Delivers over 800 MB/s worth of streaming rich media content to systems with Thunderbolt technology;
  • Reduces time spent doing proxy editing by allowing for direct playback and editing of uncompressed HD streams over Thunderbolt; and,
  • Transfers full length HD movies in minutes rather than hours saving precious time resources for actual editing.

"Partnering with Adobe to help drive workflow transformation for creative professionals is a very rewarding milestone for PROMISE," said Alice Chang, CMO, PROMISE Technology. "The combination of Pegasus and Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 is another example of our ability to respond to the evolving demands of the rich media marketplace. We look forward to expanding our collaboration in helping drive exciting innovations for the media and entertainment industry."
