Sanlink2 with CinestationIV
« on: October 09, 2014, 05:41:35 PM »
I just bought the Sanlink2 10GBase-T ethernet to Thunderbolt 2 switcher from Promise to connect Cinestation IV to a MacBook Pro & Mac Pro. Nobody could really tell me if it works as most of the users are using the ATTO NT 2102 Thunderlink switcher.
I have amazing news. It works like a dream with our set up. Installed the driver, which you can download online, pop in the IP address for the cinestation (be aware that each ethernet port on the switcher has to be set with the correct IP address to talk correctly to the cinestation.
Positive things about the Sanlink2 10GBase-T ethernet swicher are size (third of ATTO NT Thunderlink) and price with nearly half the price of ATTOs. ($ 580 compared to $ 999)
Tested the ATTO NT 2102
So all together an amazing purchase and I can only recommend using it.

Hey Karl,

We at Kamerawerk tried to improve the Phantom Flex 4K workflow.

So we came up with PhantomFuse. It is a smart driver for CineMags, which enables the CineMag to appear as external drive in the finder! Just like a regular external hard disk.

With this tool you can use any program of your choice for copying and saving .cine files (even copying via
finder would be possible).

Besides that it offers a few nice little tools, which will improve your workflow.

If you like you can check it out:

Would be great to hear your feedback!
