More reasons to create, more ways to reach audiences
Today, a range of innovative technologies, including broadcasting / TV / film, OTT TV, HD cameras, VR, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), allow professionals more opportunities and possibilities, and space for creation. With massive data being generated in this process, the LaCie portfolio of Thunderbolt 3 storage solutions helps professionals efficiently handle these huge amounts of ultra high-resolution video content.
“Creative and video professionals are helping forge a brand new digital lifestyle, where huge amounts of data are being generated, resulting in storage pain points in terms of both capacity and speed,” said Sandy Sun, Seagate’s vice-president and general manager for Asia-Pacific and China Sales. “I am delighted to announce LaCie’s storage solutions, which feature combined design, performance and capacities, providing the ability to address these demanding requirements.”
On the sidelines of the event, LaCie also organized a product experience meeting for the new storage solutions at Jumeirah Himalayas Hotel Shanghai, where videographers and photographers were invited to experience these new LaCie products. Mr. Nong Tianshi, senior manager of technical support for cloud business at Seagate China, participated in the meeting and shared the LaCie updates.
Neil Poulton designs, Thunderbolt 3 and up to 120TB
The new solutions, styled by Neil Poulton, are ideal companions to the all-new MacBook Pro laptops which incorporate the latest Thunderbolt 3 ports. With double the video bandwidth of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 lets a user daisy chain dual 4K displays or a single 5K display to the LaCie 12big or LaCie 6big, allowing for a powerful platform together with MacBook Pro.
With the fast transfer speeds of Thunderbolt 3, LaCie Bolt3 paired with two M.2 PCIe SSDs striped into a 2TB volume, making it a fast desktop drive for record speeds of up to 2800MB/s, cuts valuable time off of post-production workflows. LaCie Bolt3 is engineered for long term reliability—from the enclosure to the internal components—to endure intensive storage tasks.
Computer Numerical Control-machined solid aluminum casing
The LaCie Bolt 3 is individually Computer Numerical Control-machined from solid aluminum external casing for rigid durability and heat dissipation. Effective cooling helps to ensure long-term component health. The stand securely docks the product with powerful neodymium magnets—and detaches for easy transport.
With up to 120TB of capacity, the breakthrough performance of Thunderbolt 3 and RAID 5/6, the LaCie 12big and the new LaCie 6big help video professionals meet the data demands of 4/5/6K cameras. Both feature Seagate enterprise-class drives with 256MB cache and 7200RPM for superb accessibility, reliability and robust performance.
