The Mercury Helios Single-Slot PCIe Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis from OWC / Other World Computing provides you with the flexibility to upgrade the capabilities of most workstations by offering an extra x16 PCIe 2.0 slot. It can be used to connect a single PCI card for video capturing, video editing, media transcoding, audio processing, fast networking, and more to a computer via the Thunderbolt interface.

The Helios supports one half-length (up to 7.75"), full-height, and single-width PCIe card to provide a vast array of expansion options. It also supports a double-width card with a x2, x4, x8, or x16 interface. The expansion chassis offers expansion of computing capabilities of any Thunderbolt or Thunderbolt 2 equipped Mac Pro, iMac, Mac mini, Mac laptop, or PC.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I've been an editor for twenty five years and a Mac user. It's a pleasure to buy something that works at the first time. I'm using this box with blackmagic 4k Extreme 12g. I'm running MacPro with Adobe Premier CC 2017 and It works like a glove. No surprises nor hiccups. Thank you B&H. For the beginner editor, don't forget to setup the operating system (IO to blackmagic card of your choice) after software and card installation are done.
