Atech Flash Technology has announced the new Blackjet™ TX-1S Thunderbolt 3 Sony SxS reader.
- Thunderbolt™ 3 provides speeds up to 40Gbps
- Reversible Thunderbolt 3 Type-C connector makes connections
much easier and quicker.
- Supports Sony SxS media cards
- Ingest footage with speeds up to 1250 MB/s*
- Rugged metal enclosure to ensure durability and longevity
- Vent holes to increase heat dissipation
The card reader supports the following media:
SxS PRO X Series
SxS PRO+ Series
SxS PRO Series
SxS -1 Series
This means that the reader is not compatible with the more recent AXS cards which provide even faster data rates for RAW workflows.
Pricing has not yet been announced for the Blackjet TX-1S.
Sony’s SBAC-US30 SxS card reader is available in USB 3.0 and retails for $319.99 USD. If you were to look at Thunderbolt 3, Sonnet has the SF3 Series Thunderbolt 3 SxS card reader which has dual Thunderbolt 3 ports and dual SxS card slots at $299 USD. Neither of these readers are compatible with AXS cards.
