CalDigit. Serious Storage.
CalDigit Pro

GLP Films used their CalDigit storage solutions on location to back-up their video files and to edit their film in post.
When we design every CalDigit product it is built with the professional user in mind. We know that whether you're a video editor, photographer, or an audio engineer you need an external storage solution you can depend on.

This is a short film edited with the CalDigit AV Pro.

Which ever interface options you have available on your Mac or PC, CalDigit's storage solutions offer the best performance in the industry. Whether you use Thunderbolt, USB 3.0, eSATA, or FireWire, CalDigit's storage solutions offer outstanding performance.
RAID 0 & 1
Professional users demand high performance external RAID storage for modern workflows. RAID 0 gives users outstanding performance, as all the drives in a RAID 0 work together to achieve incredible speeds.

The CalDigit T4 gives users outstanding performance in RAID 0 for working with the highest quality video files. The T4 can reach speeds of 1370MB/s in RAID 0 with SSDs. That is the maximum performance possible through the Thunderbolt 2 interface.

RAID 1 on the other hand is ideal for users who need to have multiple back-ups of their files. The CalDigit T3 for example, when set to RAID 1, gives users three back-ups of their data.
The T3’s outstanding RAID 0 performance with SSDs of 1100MB/s makes it it the ideal external storage solution to use when working with 4K Video files. Editing with 4K in Final Cut Pro or AVID has never been so hassle free!

Be sure to check out this user testimonial on the AJA website where the CalDigit T3 was used alongside the AJA KiPro Quad to simultaneously back-up 4K video files from the Pak media SSDs to the T3 whilst at the same time recording footage directly onto the T3. For more info click here.
RAID 5 -
Performance & Protection

Professional users do not only demand outstanding performance, but also secure protection for their valuable files. RAID 5 gives users the best of both worlds. The CalDigit T4 in RAID 5 means ZERO downtime in post-production. In the event of any of the four HDDs in the T4 failing, all user data will still be available, and users can carry on working with no disruption. Then all a user has to do to get that RAID 5 protection again is insert a new HDD, and the RAID 5 protection will be back. As well as protection, RAID 5 also gives users outstanding performance. The T4 in RAID 5 with SSDs can achieve speeds of up to 1000MB/s, and 550MB/s with 3.5” HDDs.
Renowned Storage

The CalDigit Thunderbolt Station 2’s multiple connections that include USB 3.0, eSATA, HDMI, and Audio In/Out give DIT users outstanding flexibility in the field. Use the USB 3.0 or eSATA ports to connect external storage such as the CalDigit VR2 to back-up your data. The HDMI port on the Thunderbolt Station 2 allows users to connect a second monitor up to 4K resolution for organizing their files and adding metadata ready for post-production.
CalDigit's storage solutions are ideal for transferring files quickly saving users time and money. Photographers who are copying files from their SD cards need to back-up their data fast in order to get back to work. The CalDigit AV Pro SSD can transfer a 20GB file in 47 seconds.

Traditional external storage solutions are not built for sharing files. CalDigit's storage on the other hand feature interchangeable drive modules that work together allowing users to take out a drive and use it in another location. Moving data from one location to the other has never been so convenient.

The Thunderbolt 2 interface gives users a vast amount of flexibility that makes it easier than ever to connect all of your external storage devices. Thunderbolt 2 also allows users to integrate a powerful 4K workflow that includes a 4K monitor and other 4K capable devices.
From time to time you may be working in an environment where you need a storage solution with multiple interfaces. The CalDigit VR2 features USB 3.0. eSATA, FireWire 800 and FireWire 400.

Many of CalDigit's products are compatible with both SSDs and 3.5" HDDs. Other storage devices only support one or the other. If you purchase the 3.5" HDD version of the T3, T4 or AV Pro you can always upgrade to the SSD version in the future.
CalDigit's storage solutions feature removable drive modules that allow you to upgrade the capacity of your storage.

As video and photo sizes are getting bigger, users need external storage that is not only high performance but also high capacity. The CalDigit T3 is available in capacities up to 15TB, and the T4 is available in capacities up to 20TB. Users can also daisy-chain extra CalDigit drives together for even more storage!

The CalDigit AV Pro features the ability to be bus powered when used with an SSD. This makes it the ideal solution to use on location to back-up photos, and videos.

All of CalDigit's storage solutions are made from high quality aluminum. A lot of other solutions on the market are made from cheap plastic that can break. Aluminum helps with heat dissipation that keeps the HDDs inside the unit cool.
