Cine Gear Expo 2018

A bit smaller and shorter than other shows, Cine Gear Expo was nevertheless a great opportunity to introduce some of our latest Thunderbolt 3 products to the entertainment and media industry.

We would like to thank all the visitors who came to see us and hope to see you again next year.

As of April 24, 2018, the AKiTiO Thunder2 Duo Pro has been discontinued and this model is no longer being manufactured, sold or maintained.

NAB Show 2018

This is the fifth year for Akitio to take part in the exhibition at the NAB Show in Las Vegas and as in the years before, we had a great time!

A big thank you for those who stopped by our booth to check out the latest products or just to have a chat with our team. For those who didn't have the chance to go to Las Vegas, stay tuned. We have some interesting products coming this year.

USB-C archery

USB Type-C or for short USB-C is a specification for connectors and cables. It's a small and reversible connector.

Thunderbolt 3 defines a superset of capabilities that runs on USB-C connectors and cables. At 40 Gbps, Thunderbolt 3 is currently the fastest connection available for Akitio' storage solutions.

When buying a computer or an external storage device, always check the specifications first in order to make sure the devices are compatible and you are getting the best possible transfer rates.

SK-2500 U3

As of December 1, 2017, the SK-2500 U3 has been discontinued and this model is no longer being manufactured, sold or maintained.

The SK-2500 U3 was a compact, portable and simple to use aluminum enclosure designed for 2.5" SATA hard drives. It had a USB 3.0 interface with a single Mini USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port.

This model has been replaced by the Neutrino U3, which offers the same kind of design and features.
