Thunderbolt™ "daisy-chaining"

Io XT connects to your Mac or PC with a single Thunderbolt™ cable and provides a second Thunderbolt™ connector for daisy-chaining other devices, such as storage or displays, making it perfect for on set, or in the edit suite.

Disconnecting a device in the middle of a Thunderbolt™ chain will disconnect all devices that come after it. On some jobs, the drive array may be moved frequently, so it would be best to have that at the end of the chain, while other times it may be a monitor that is being removed periodically. Io XT's dual Thunderbolt™ ports ensure that no matter what configuration you need, the system can continue to operate without interruption.
