Is there a way to connect a Hyperdeck Studio Pro 2 directly to a computer, and edit the video files directly? It has a Thunderbolt connection, but it says that it's for "capture of video and audio" which sounds like you would be capturing to a file on the computer, rather than reading the previously captured file on the SSD.
Currently our process involves removing the two SSD's from Hyperdeck, and putting them into an SSD Dock.
That introduces several adverse variables into the workflow:
- The video capture person may forget to remove them and dock them at the computer. This matters because the editing person works remotely, and logs into the editing computer.
- The dock connections are fiddly, and I can see over time that the SSD's SATA connectors will be stressed and become a point of failure.
- It seems unnecessary. It would be better to just read the files directly off the deck so that the drives can stay where they are.
