The Briefcase X2 by NEBTEK is the most portable QTAKE HDx2 system on the market today. When we built the Briefcase X2, we set out to make a system that would be lightweight for on-location work, but with the computing power of an NX2 system.

The Briefcase X2 operates on a 15” retina MacBook Pro with 1TB SSD storage. The case includes an AJA Io XT Thunderbolt for up to 2 HD-SDI signals** and QOD+. Furthermore, the system is built with a USB audio solution for analog audio in and out of your MacBook Pro and includes fans for cooling.

*QTAKE HD software cost additional and is sold separately. The license is avail- able for Full License purchase, Module purchase or Rent-to-own.
**Both signals must be same format, format converter included
