The time needed for virtually every aspect of the post-production workflow falls when using the D16 Thunderbolt 3. At lightning speed, users can transfer several hours of footage from a Blackmagic® device to Adobe® Premiere Pro. In turn, with uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video, users can edit the ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 4444 XQ, and other data streams. Thumbnails and preview rendering are significantly more responsive when using large items with numerous high-definition clips.
Using one cable, Thunderbolt 3 enables users to daisy-chain more than five devices to their computer. As a result, users can achieve an enormous 1PB capacity by linking together six D16 Thunderbolt 3 devices.
If your Mac has Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 2 ports, you can capitalise on the D16 Thunderbolt 3 to achieve high-end transfer rates. With Apple’s Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter (not sold with the D16 Thunderbolt 3), compatibility between the D16 Thunderbolt 3 and earlier Thunderbolt technologies is straightforwardly achieved.
