ThunderPack is a revolutionary portable all in one solution for digital film production.

Due to its unique shockproof design hosted in a compact IP67 (watertight, dustproof) Pelican case, ThunderPack can be used in varying environments and may be easily transported as a carry-on on board an aircraft.

It connects to Apple MacBook Pro and MacBook Air computers via Thunderbolt technology, tablets and smartphones via WiFi and combines: a RAID storage array of up to 40TB (RAID-0) or 36TB (RAID-6) storage capacity, an LTO-6 for backing up rushes, Gigabit Ethernet and a 3-port Gigabit Ethernet switch for connecting other devices, a WiFi access point and router with DHCP server, and a Blackmagic Design™ Ultrastudio mini monitor video out card or an AJA io-4K Thunderbolt 2 video I/O card.

ThunderPack is powered by a sophisticated 320W power management system, or by any available 12V solar panel.

Resilience and autonomy are assured by an integrated 588Wh Li-ion battery UPS.
