Seagate Launches LaCie Rugged RAID Pro Drive at NAB

Seagate Technology introduced the LaCie Rugged RAID Pro, a robust, travel-ready hard drive with RAID and SD card capability.

Seagate also announced a new creative professional community, Collective, to support the workflows of creative professionals that allow digital content to be created, stored, utilized and shared in the most effective ways.

“From shooting on set through to post-production, the transferring, storing and accessing of data is a pivotal part of the creative workflow. At Seagate, we’re constantly looking to deliver storage solutions that allow people to unlock their full creative potential, and create truly memorable content,” said Tim Bucher, a senior vice president of Seagate.

At the NAB show, Seagate's  LaCie launched the Rugged RAID Pro 4TB, design by Neil Poulton, the next generation of its Rugged RAID solution. Encased in an orange rubber shell, the Rugged RAID Pro offers up to 240 MB/s in RAID 0 and RAID 1 for peace-of-mind in having a second copy in the field, as well as when transporting content back to the editing studios. With the integrated SD Card Reader, users can offload content with the quick import toolkit.

The Rugged RAID Pro is designed with the latest USB-C connector and compatible with next-generation Thunderbolt 3 computers but also backward compatible with USB 3.0. While the drive is also shock, dust, crush and water resistant, LaCie includes three-year limited warranty with Rescue Data Recovery Services and a one-month Adobe All-Apps Plan (a $79.49 value).

LaCie Rugged RAID Pro will be shipping this quarter at a price of $349.
