An interview from the 2016 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Greg Crosby of G-Technology. From storing, transferring, editing and distributing content, G-Technology makes the workflow simpler, better and faster. G-Technology's high-performance portable and desktop drives, flexible transfer/edit solutions and fast RAID systems are all built for professional content creation environments where performance and reliability are paramount. In this interview Greg talks with us about their recent collaboration with Atomos, a leading provider of smart 4K and HD video production tools, to bring a suite of storage solutions designed to streamline the content creation process. The new solutions include the ev Series Reader Atomos Master Caddy Edition, the Atomos Master Caddy 4K by G-Technology and the Atomos Master Caddy HD by G-Technology.
With SSD configurations achieving transfer rates surpassing 500 MB/s – ideal for 4K, HDR and other demanding content formats – the Atomos Master Caddy 4K by G-Technology inserts directly into any Atomos-compatible recorder. The Caddy then slides into the ev Series Reader Atomos Master Caddy Edition, which slips into any G-DOCK® ev or G-SPEED® Shuttle XL with ev Series Bay Adapters. This combination makes quick, cable-free work of transferring footage into main project storage, creating backups and quickly turning around formatted media.
Leveraging high-performance USB Type C connectivity, the ev Series Reader Atomos Master Caddy Edition is one of the latest accessories in the Evolution Series of high-performance, flexible storage solutions. Easily slipping the Atomos Master Caddy 4K or HD versions by G-Technology into the Caddy, users can transfer content quickly from the Atomos recorder into an ev Series-compatible¹ or other G-Technology storage solution. When shooting on-the-go, it can be used as a standalone device to review, log, and backup footage.
