The C2S CFast to SSD Solution from Atoch allows users of the 4K & 4.6K versions of the Blackmagic URSA and URSA Mini, as well as the URSA Mini Pro, to record footage captured by their camera directly onto SSDs, as compared to CFast cards. Operating as a "digital bulk loader," the C2S has two 2.5" / 9.5mm SATA drive bays, each of which is equipped with a wired CFast adapter that plugs directly into each of the CFast card slots on the URSA, URSA Mini, or URSA Mini Pro. Each 2.5" drive bay supports SSDs up to 2TB, for a total storage capacity of 4TB, or the equivalent of 16 x 256GB CFast cards. Not only will the C2S negate the need to carry around multiple CFast cards, users will also be able to swap out drive media less frequently, as larger capacity SSDs are a more cost-effective purchase than CFast cards.
In dual card mode, the C2S supports up to 4.6K RAW recording at 60 fps. In single card mode, the C2S is able to record compressed RAW video at any resolution at all available compression levels, which are 3:1 for the 4K sensor and both 3:1 and 4:1 for the 4.6K sensor, as well as all available resolutions and frame rates of Apple ProRes. Additionally, when used with Atoch's recommended SSDs, the C2S supports a greater maximum data rate than the 4.6K version of the URSA and URSA Mini are designed to output.
The Atoch C2S has helped to trim costs and streamline post-production workflows for many projects. This device is powered using the included D-Tap to DC cable and for those who wish to use 7mm SSDs within the C2S' 9.5mm drive bays, two SSD spacers are also included.
