NAB 2012 news: A closer look at the AOC Thunderbolt display

It made its first appearance at CES, but NAB 2012 was many people’s first chance to get a closer look at AOC’s Thunderbolt display.

As our intrepid reporter/storage solutions architect’s pictures show, the display comes with dual Thunderbolt ports, so you can daisy chain up to six Thunderbolt devices off the back of it – in this case a ThinkPad and a LaCie Little Big Disk.

This setup is running via Sumimoto’s optical Thunderbolt cables, which will work with your PC and should be available soon – sample stock is already available in Japan. Thunderbolt on PC works natively with the OS, so you won’t need any additional drivers to enable Thunderbolt bus, but you’ll still need the appropriate drivers on your end point devices.

The display is due out later this year, with no word yet on the cables – we’ll keep you posted. Click on the thumbnails below for a closer look.
