WPPI 2019: New from Glyph Technologies


Data. Data. More data. Wedding photographers and portrait photographers working outside of the studio generate a ton of data. Add 4K video to the mix and you can close your eyes and imagine your memory cards overheating. With this ever-increasing production of images and video, and the associated tsunami of data a single photographer can produce at one event or shoot, the challenge of storing and retrieving that information is being met by Glyph Technologies and its extremely portable SSD drives and Thunderbolt™ 3 docks back at your digital darkroom.

On display at the B&H Photo booth at WPPI, Glyph Technologies Atom Pro NVMe Solid-State Drives come in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB varieties and are ruggedized for shock, vibration, dust, and sand resistance. The drives are formatted for Mac users, but can be reformatted for Windows. Need to transfer your data fast? The Atom Pro has a 2,800 MB/s read and 2,600 MB/s write speed and is Thunderbolt™ 3/USB Type-C equipped.

When you get back from the field or the wedding, you need to transfer all that data to your computer and you suddenly find that your new sleek laptop is painfully short on ports and places into which to plug your stuff. One of the best ways to accommodate data transfer and other computer accessory needs is with a Glyph Technologies Thunderbolt™ 3 Dock. Glyph has a version with no internal storage, as well as 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB SSD models.

If you think it’s hard to keep pace with technology, spending time with those companies that deal with the storage of data will make your head spin. It wasn’t long ago that a 128kb flash drive would set you back almost $100. “It holds a ton of floppy disk’s worth of data!” Now, tiny rugged SSDs are smaller than your smart phone and hold previously unheard of amounts of data.
