PROMISE Technology Upgrades Pegasus R6 Capacity to 18TB – Reduces Cost of Acquiring 12TB Units

New Capacity Provides Creative Professionals Advanced Performance and Enterprise Level Data Protection – Lower Total Cost of Acquisition Improves Affordability of Thunderbolt Enabled Storage Devices

MILPITAS, Calif./HSINCHU, Taiwan – August 22, 2012– PROMISE Technology Inc., a leader in providing high-performance storage solutions for the rich media market and the leader in designing cutting-edge Thunderbolt™ enabled devices today announced the introduction of 3TB drives for the Pegasus R6 – expanding capacity to 18TBs. The expanded capacity addresses the performance and storage needs demanded by video editors and creative professionals who want to dramatically increase the amount of digital assets they can ingest, edit or playback including multiple streams of uncompressed HD (10-bit and 12-bit) video.

In conjunction with this increased capacity, PROMISE also announces a price reduction for their internationally award winning Pegasus R6 12TB units. The increased availability of HDDs due to the stabilization in the recently volatile market has resulted in dramatically lower costs for drives and PROMISE has seized on this unique opportunity to pass along these savings directly to their customers.

This newly expanded capacity affords greater protection of valuable workflows, audio sessions and other media content on-location or in the edit suite while leveraging the dynamic increase in flexibility and performance. The complete Pegasus family of storage offerings is fully compatible with the recently announced OS X® Mountain Lion, the world’s most advanced operating system.
