OWC has released the $339.99 OWC Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock. It’s designed to be the “ultimate on-location, post production ‘mission control’ solution” thanks to its combination of 10Gb Ethernet, CFast and SD card readers, two Thunderbolt 3 ports, three USB 3.1 ports, and full support for eSATA devices and drives.
The CFast and SD 4.0 card readers are accessible on the unit’s front side. Though big on pro-level features, OWC’s new Pro Dock sports a compact footprint roughly the size of a single external drive enclosure.
With the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Pro Dock, creators can ingest and work with 4/8K RAW video and RAW photo files at speeds up to 600MB/s. They can collaborate in a shared workflow environment via the 10Gb Ethernet port.
The Dock supports either one or two 4K monitors, or alternatively one 5K monitor connected to the second Thunderbolt 3 port. You can daisy chain up to five additional Thunderbolt devices like studio-level storage, RAID arrays, PCIe expansion, or Thunderbolt displays – all while powering a laptop and managing USB 3.1 devices.
