LaCie Demonstrates the Ultimate Thunderbolt™ Configuration for Video Professionals

PARIS, FRANCE – Today LaCie announced the unveiling of a significant Thunderbolt technology demonstration at the Intel® booth (#M0410) during Computex 2011, from June 1-4, in Taipei, Taiwan. The demonstration will showcase multiple LaCie Little Big Disks Thunderbolt Series in a daisy chain, delivering speeds up to 835MB/s – the fastest performance achieved by any mobile storage solution.

A perfect configuration for video professionals and demanding users, the LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series is the first peripheral to showcase daisy chain capability between a high-end display and multiple storage devices, with no compromise in performance. For example, a professional display such as LaCie’s 324i, together with up to five additional hard drives can deliver enough bandwidth to support several 1080p uncompressed streams of HD video in Final Cut Pro. Even better, professionals can connect to the entire configuration with a single Thunderbolt cable.

This kind of speed development is unheard of in mobile storage devices. Now, with the Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series, professionals can handle projects that were previously tied to server rooms, in the palm of their hands. With the Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series, high-end studio editing is now possible on the go.

“We are thrilled to meet this significant speed milestone, not just for mobile storage, but for the entire industry,” said Erwan Girard, Professional Business Unit Manager, LaCie. “The availability of LaCie’s Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series will dramatically change the storage footprint of our professional customers that are using the latest MacBook® Pro or iMac®. And it’s not only achieved with solid-state drives. LaCie’s Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series pushes the performance limitations of hard drive technology, resulting in a high-capacity, fast-performing solution that’s also extremely cost effective.”

LaCie showcased the remarkable performance of LaCie’s Little Big Disks Thunderbolt Series hard drive model, at the recent NAB conference, in Las Vegas, April 2010.

The Little Big Disk Thunderbolt Series will be available this summer. LaCie’s 324i high-end display is fully compatible with Thunderbolt Technology and can be purchased at
