OWC Digital®, a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, unveils that it will launch a trio of innovative products featuring Thunderbolt 3 technology at the acclaimed National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, NV.

Internationally recognized as the largest annual digital media conference and expo for industry titans specializing in the creation, management and distribution of entertainment across all platforms, NAB 2016 is set to kick off festivities Saturday April 16th, with exhibits commencing on Monday, April 18th through Thursday, April 21st.

Upholding a deep-rooted commitment to innovation, OWC rolls out the next generation of functional docks and popular external drives:

  • OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock
  • Envoy Pro EX with Thunderbolt 3
  • Mercury Helios 3

These soon-to-be released products will take advantage of the new capabilities found in Thunderbolt 3 technology, boasting faster, more versatile connections than ever before. Thunderbolt 3 doubles available bandwidth to 40Gbps, cuts power consumption in half, and can simultaneously drive two external 4K UHD displays. Utilizing these new capabilities, the latest OWC solutions featuring Thunderbolt 3 technology create endless possibilities for content creators demanding the highest performance from their devices.

Thunderbolt 3 Dock

Compatible with Mac OS X and now Windows, the dock’s litany of ports provides a compelling solution for creative professionals seeking to unite a multitude of peripherals for ultimate connectivity. Like the Thunderbolt 2 Dock, the OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock offers convenience and flexibility with its 12 ports, which now include a high-power USB 3.1 Gen 1 port for fast mobile device charging, a mini DisplayPort with support for a hi-res display up to 4K at 60Hz, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.

With the introduction of Thunderbolt 3 technology, the new OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock can support two incredible ultra hi-res 4K displays at 60Hz, extensive connectivity with daisy-chain, and power delivery, creating an even more streamlined workflow.

Envoy Pro EX with Thunderbolt 3

Concurrent with the Thunderbolt 3 Dock, OWC is pleased to announce that the award-winning Envoy Pro EX will be one of the first external storage solutions to integrate Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, making the aesthetically sleek enclosure faster and more powerful than ever before. Achieving scorching-fast data transfer rates of over 1 GB/s, the super portable device safely houses a PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSD, handling virtually any storage or backup need. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience the high-performance capabilities of the Envoy Pro EX with a live demo at the OWC booth.

Mercury Helios 3

The next generation in the OWC Mercury Helios lineup, Mercury Helios 3 is the new frontier for powerful high-speed expansion cards, defying the current limits of conventional Macs. Accommodating a double-width, half-length x16 PCIe card, Helios 3 is hot-pluggable, powers on and off with your computer and is great for hi-res video ingest cards and other PCIe connectivity solutions needed to ensure seamless productivity. Built from a rugged aluminum chassis with a dedicated cooling fan, the PCIe expansion chassis features two Thunderbolt 3 ports for optimal performance.
