PROMISE Technology Debuts Pegasus M4 at the “PROMISE Technology Creative Lounge 2022”

The private event will give creative media professionals a personalized, hands-on and true user experience with the latest direct-attached SSD RAID storage system

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Sept. 8, 2022 -- PROMISE Technology (or ‘PROMISE’), a leading global rich media storage solutions provider, will unveil the all-new Pegasus M4 at the PROMISE Creative Lounge to be held on September 10 at the Van der Valk Hotel Amsterdam Zuidas.

The latest in its top-line Pegasus Series, the Pegasus M4 is a ThunderboltTM 4 direct-attached RAID storage system and will be showcased on site for rich media users, just a stone’s throw from the International Broadcasting Convention 2022 (IBC 2022) at RAI Amsterdam.

 “The Pegasus M4 combines robustness, stability and high performance, with PROMISE RAID, renowned for content protection; Thunderbolt 4’s high bandwidth for connecting high-speed devices; and low latency of SSD; all housed in a compact four-bay enclosure - it makes the M4 a perfect fit for mobile and high-performance media pros,” said Alice Chang, Chief Marketing Officer of PROMISE

For optimum performance, the Pegasus M4 is best matched with the recently launched Mac Studio, M1/M2 Apple Silicon based Mac systems. It supports macOS 12 and soon to be released Ventura (macOS 13) with user space DriverKit Driver (DEXT), M4 features the highest security for creative media professionals.

Its lightweight (1.9kg), small carbon footprint (ErP/EuP, RoHS, and WEEE certified), and compact (107 x 127 x 167mm) design also makes the Pegasus M4 a perfect mobile editing station for content creators on-the-go.

All-SSD array for excellent performance and low latency, the Pegasus M4 supports demanding 4K/8K ingest/playback/editing postproduction workflow – a must-have for rich media professionals. The newest member of the Pegasus family also maximizes all four SSDs performance using Enterprise RAID data protection, delivering over 2,000 MB/sec with low latency – a step up from the previous Pegasus solutions for high resolution film and video postproductions.

Compatible with Thunderbolt 3 and the latest Thunderbolt 4 host interface, the Pegasus M4 features dual Thunderbolt 40Gbps ports that enable faster and higher performance, with one port used for the upstream host connection, and the other for the downstream daisy chained, up to six Thunderbolt devices.

“With Pegasus M4, PROMISE continues to stay at the forefront of understanding and empowering the creative industry’s growing storage and performance needs. In line with this, the PROMISE Creative Lounge is a new and exciting format that provides personalized live, first-hand experiences for rich media product launches,” Chang said.
