LaCie introduces 12big Thunderbolt3 Drives – the worldâ€™s largest desktop DAS drive with speeds up to 2600MB/s, RAID 5/6, and capacities up to 96 TERABYTES!
If the theme at this year’s NAB Show is “Go Big or Go Home”, LaCie may be sticking around Vegas for a long time…
For the 12big, LaCie harnessed the breakthrough performance potential of the Thunderbolt 3 I/O and squeezed the absolute best speeds out of the hard drives. We added a hardware RAID controller and 7200RPM drives, and the result is astonishing speeds of up to 2600MB/sâ€”and 2400MB/s in RAID 5.
That kind of speed can slash time off nearly every task in your post-production workflow. Ingest hours of RAW footage from a Blackmagic cinema camera into Adobe Premiere Pro in a fraction of the time. Then edit multiple streams of ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 444 XQ, as well as uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video. For big projects packed with high-def clips, thumbnail and preview rendering becomes much more responsive.
With double the video bandwidth of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 lets you daisy chain dual 4K displays or a single 5K display to the LaCie 12big. With two 4K displays, you can spread out your workspace by dedicating one display to your timeline and the other to previewing 4K footage, for example. It’s even possible to power a compatible laptop through the Thunderbolt 3 connection.
Designed to operate 24Ã—7 on 16-bay racks (instead of 8Ã—5 operations for traditional hard drives), these HDD are rated for 8760 hours of operation per year for extraordinary availability. The LaCie 12big with enterprise-class drives also comes with a five-year limited warranty that covers drives, enclosure, and spare partsâ€”ensuring a solid, long-term investment.
