Hi

Is it possible to set up 10 Gigabit Ethernet for TC1 with this setup?

I have understood in another forum that it should be an overkill.
But I would like to be on the safe side and have enough bandwidth, why I do want a 10 Gb connection, if it can be done at all on a TC1?

Hi Bo,

The Sonnet unit connects to Thunderbolt 3 port, which you do NOT have on your machine. Thunderbolt 3 uses the same USB-C style connector, but what you have on your TC1 is actually USB-C (USB 3.1) and not Thunderbolt 3 so the Sonnet would not connect.


Also - curious why you even have the USB-C port? I have an early-model TC1 without that port, so either the newer shipping units use a different motherboard now, or the European units have different hardware. Interesting.

Thanks

Jeff

New TC1 unit have a motherboard with USB-C connector but no eSATA connector.

As for 10Gb, there is no need for this on a TC1 unit. However, you can connect both 1GbE interfaces to the switch and NDI will automatically take advantage of it to give you 2 gigabits of bandwidth.

Hi Kane, thanks for your reply!
But how shall I relate to this scenario:

1 Tricaster TC1, transmits 4 outputs in 1080.50p
16 NDI camera (Not NDI HX) at 1080.50p
8-10 Bird Dog Mini (Used as a Reciver) NDI to HDMI 1080,50p
1 Bird Dog Central (Routing various signals for 8-10 screens / Bird dog Mini)

Do you think i do not have to worry about bandwidth?

Best regards
Bo 😊
