An interview from the 2017 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Eric Cardinale of Glyph Technologies. Glyph Technologies makes external hard drives with an uncompromising focus on rock-solid reliability for the most demanding post-production and content creation workflow. Whether you're laying tracks, in post-production, editing video or backing up precious photos, Glyph's mobile and studio drives are your storage solution. In this interview Eric talks with us about addition of the new ATOM SSD and ATOM RAID to its series of portable data transport and storage devices. These external drives couple elegant design and rock-solid reliability with lightning fast transfer speeds—making them a sound solution for backing up, storing and transporting clips.
The new Atom drives are all fully compatible with MAC OS X 10.4+ and Windows Vista+. They feature the latest USB-C (3.1, Gen 2) connection and are backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt 3. The solid-state drives also provide fan-less heat dissipation for a long, quiet life. With clean lines and elegant design, they resemble the sleek profile of a smart phone. Each comes in a choice of black, grey, gold or silver and includes a form-fitting rubber composite shell for extra protection and sure handling.
At 1.88” wide x 4.8” long x .59” thick, the palm-sized Glyph Atom SSD is deceptively compact yet packs loads of data. Users can choose from 275GB, 525GB, or a full terabyte with speedy transfer rates up to 480 MB/s.
For those requiring even greater speed and capacity, the Atom RAID SSD is Glyph’s fastest solid-state drive ever. It combines a capacity up to 2TB with speeds reaching 860 MB per second. At 2.7” wide x 4.8” long x .59” thick, it also easily fits into the user’s pocket. Available in 1TB or 2TB, every unit features two RAID-0 SSDs.
Glyph Atom drives come set-up to go right out of the box preformatted with HFS+ with Journaling and Time Machine ready. A quick reformat makes them fully Windows compatible. All Atom SSDs and Atom RAIDs come complete with both a USB-C to USB-C (3.1) cable, and a USB-C to USB 3.0 cable.
