Xpander Elite is a 4U, 19″ rackmount PCIe slot expansion solution designed for the broadcast industry digital cinema production environments, and visualization projects which require plenty of additional power and PCIe slots, while maintaining a small physical footprint and whisper-quiet operations.
Using only one PCIe x16 slot in a host PC or Mac Pro, Xpander Rackmount Elite provides you with six additional full-length, full-height PCIe slots for use with multiple NVIDIA graphics cards, SDI capture cards from Blackmagic Design, AJA, Bluefish444, NVIDIA, and others. Add multiple RED Rocket cards, high-performance NVIDIA Quadro graphics by PNY, as well as fiber optic HBAs, RAID controllers, PCIe-based memory cache cards – all of the above using only 1 slot in the host workstation or server!
