How Do You Use Thunderbolt™ Optical Cables?

How Do You Use Thunderbolt™ Optical Cables?

Whoever said a cluttered work space encourages a creative mind wasn’t talking about that spaghetti wire mess running behind your desk or devices stacked up next to each other. Compared to copper cables, Thunderbolt and USB 3.Optical™ Cables by Corning are up to 20 times longer, 50% thinner and 80% lighter, allowing you to transform your cluttered working environment into a clean, aesthetically pleasing area. 

Video Production

Video production is your passion. It is also your livelihood, so you have to consider the big picture, which includes not only your state-of-the-art equipment — mics, mixers, lights and cameras — but also optimizing what goes on behind the scenes — workflow, storage, and backup solutions. You work hard, and smart. And now there's a cable that works on your terms.

Audio Production

As a serious audio professional, you know your recordings are only as good as the weakest link in your audio chain. And the gear that makes up that workflow — recorder, microphones, mixers, media servers — is only as good as the cabling solution connecting it all together. When cables are your lifelines, Thunderbolt Optical Cables by Corning is your only choice.

Digital Photography

If you had a dollar for every time you plugged and unplugged your camera cable to remove your SD Card, well, you know all too well what you'd have. Instead, you have time wasted, money lost, shots missed, disengaged clients, and worst of all a few more steps added for everything to go terribly wrong...bye-bye images. Streaming to a tethered computer would be ideal, but can you really set up a quality shot tied to a machine? It depends on the cable.

High Performance Computing

The super computer is here and with powerful multiprocessors come great challenges. HPC systems take up more space, require a great amount of power, and generate more heat than your typical network configuration. A complicated workflow compromise may loom in your future...but that's the price you pay when you require a powerhouse of functionality to your workstation, right? Wrong.

Medical Imaging

Robust, reliable network connectivity cabling is essential to the sophisticated advances being made in medical imaging. The ability to quickly transmit these high-resolution images to any location in the healthcare facility, and then display without delay, can be the solution to more effective treatment when fast diagnosis is vital to a patient's health.
