The TBS-h574TX packs high-speed I/O and Intel® Core™ performance required by video production, allowing creators using Mac® or Windows® to enjoy the smoothest experience ever in real-time video editing, large file transfer, video transcoding, and backup. The TBS-h574TX, acting as the bridge between pre-production and post-production, takes video projects and team collaboration to the next level. The TBS-h574TX runs the ZFS-based QuTS hero operating system that ensures data integrity. You can also switch to the QTS operating system based on your needs.

The TBS-h574TX has two Thunderbolt™ 4 ports for high-speed data transfer (up to 20Gbps bandwidth). Mac® (including M1 and M2 chip models) or Windows® workstations can directly connect to the TBS-h574TX for fast and smooth real-time video editing, allowing for the transfer of a 1TB 4K video in 11 minutes. The set-top design makes the TBS-h574TX space-saving – smaller than A4 paper and with only 2.54 liters in volume – ideal for small-scale studios or video production teams looking for a portable solution.

As a frontline video production team, there is the risk of project interruptions due to unexpected SSD failures in storage devices. The TBS-h574TX supports E1.S/M.2 NVMe SSDs and makes M.2 SSDs hot-swappable for easier drive replacement. Along with supporting automatic RAID replacement with spares (supported from QTS 5.1 / QuTS hero h5.1), if potential drive errors are detected, the system automatically moves data from the affected drive in a RAID group to a spare, before the data on the affected drive is completely corrupted.
