S.two Corporation, a Reno based manufacturer that provides uncompressed digital film production solutions and the workflows to seamlessly integrate the move to post, has announced the FlashDock, a portable editorial ingest and archival station for FlashMag solid-state magazines from OB-1 which is S.two’s on-board digital film recorder. The smallest self-contained uncompressed recorder for HD, HD4:4:4 and raw production, OB-1 weighs under 7 lbs. (3Kg) and draws under 20W of power, is powered directly from the camera, fully solid state and completely silent in operation.
Supporting uncompressed 4:4:4 RGB and raw data, including ARRIRAW, the FlashDock provides multiple transfer target interfaces, including dual-link HD-SDI, eSATA, USB 2.0, Gbit Ethernet, RS422, and SAS. FCP-style XML and Avid-style ALE metadata files are generated and made available over Ethernet or to a USB device for automated editorial ingest. An optional Expansion Chassis provides two half-height LTO3/4 drive bays and is powered from the FlashDock for true on-location archival or backup capability. The FlashDock is capable of operating on 100-240VAC or 24VDC power and is designed to be used on remote shoot locations, in the studio, or in a post production facility.
