Top 5 Reasons Pro Content Creators Trust LaCie Storage

LaCie storage solutions are great for post production workflows of all sizes, from working on the go to full on desktop solution.  On this week's Videoguys Live Webinar, host, Gary Bettan, is running through the top five reasons we love LaCie drives, and which workflows each drive fits the best in.  

Check out the webinar below:

Top 5 Reasons to Love LaCie:

1. Capture and Edit on Set:

Using a SmallRig Mount, attach the LaCie Rugged SSD or Rugged SSD Pro or even the Rugged BOSS SSD, to your Blackmagic, Z-Cam E2, or Sigma fp and enjoy seamless video capture. Then, plug the drive into your iPad Pro and let the editing begin.

2. Centralized Workflows for your 4K, 6K and Beyond:

LaCie also has desktop and portable solutions for larger workflows beyond standard high definition or 1080p.  These are drives that can support 4K, 6K and beyond and have the transfer speeds to handle editing right off the drive.  

For a pocket sized solution, the Rugged SSD Pro is an excellent choice.  Users can also look to the 1big Dock SSD Pro, 2big Dock Thunderbolt 3 or 2big Raid for a solution that fits in a  backpack and can be easily transported. Lastly, for a permanent desktop solution, there's the 6big Dock with Thunderbolt 3.  

3. Take your Files on the Go and Trust LaCie's History of Rugged Readiness

LaCie's Rugged drives have provided the industry with a go to for those who want to access and create data on the go.  Check out this timeline of LaCie's development of their Rugged Drives. 

4. Works with iPad Pro

Want to jump into post-production using your iPad but finding yourself limited by storage capacity and internet availability?

On the go or in the studio, now you can do things your way—simply connect your LaCie desktop or portable drive to your iPad Air or iPad Pro’s USB-C port for a powerful boost of space and fast, easy access to your stored photo, video, and audio files.

Connect to Your Docking Station

For a powerful desktop setup, connect your iPad to the 1big Dock or 2big Dock. You'll gain access to extra high-capacity enterprise-class storage, an array of docking benefits—USB 3.0 port, SD card reader, CF card reader, the ability to connect a secondary monitor—and, it’ll keep your iPad powered as you work.

Take Your Files on the Go

Adding extra storage to your iPad so you can edit high-res photos and video on the go is easy. With Rugged USB-C, you can keep a massive medi

a library by your side, connect it to your iPad, and work from anywhere.
