Recent Mac owners who rushed to get the latest and greatest computers with Thunderbolt on board have likely been disappointed to discover there’s nothing available yet to plug into them -- but that’s all about to change, as a video out of Japan reveals a new Blackmagic box in use with two of the ports.
9to5Mac is reporting that Japanese website Macotakara.jp was lucky enough to get their hands on a quick demo of Blackmagic Design’s new UltraStudio 3D, a Thunderbolt-enabled breakout box capable of 3D capture and playback via SDI, HDMI and analog. The device is shown in the embedded video below running on a new Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Pro running Final Cut Pro X.
“Although BlackMagic’s site lists the device as having one Thunderbolt port, the unit on display has two ports. Engineers apparently haven’t yet made the final decision on that,” 9to5Mac notes. “The below clip shows a cool portable editing solution consisting of an early 2011 15-inch MacBook Pro, an UltraStudio 3D box, a Promise R6 Pegasus RAID and a Video-422 deck controller.”
Macotakara.jp noted earlier this week that the eagerly awaited Final Cut Pro X would be available next week, although Apple has been mum on the topic this far. Back in April at the NAB show, Apple showed off Final Cut Pro X to video professionals, announcing it would be available from the Mac App Store in June for the low price of only $299, but there’s been no further word about the release or updated components for the rest of Final Cut Studio.
