Thunderbolt technology

Intel has introduced Thunderbolt – a technology designed to give 10Gbps transfer speed between your computer and peripheral devices. To put that in context, Thunderbolt will transfer a full-length HD movie in less than 30 seconds.

Apple has already incorporated the technology in its latest Macbook Pro computers. Now Canon has indicated that it is interested. "We are excited about Thunderbolt technology and feel it will bring new levels of performance and simplicity to the video creation market", said Hiroo Edakubo, Group Executive, Video Products Group, Canon Inc.

Canon has not yet indicated which of their products might be the first with Thunderbolt.
