LaCie 6big & 12big

For professionals working with raw uncompressed HiRes footage, the LaCie 6big / 12big is a no-brainer. With the ability to daisy chain 4K displays and multiple RAID Arrays, these systems can take on any project of any size, in a fraction of the time its predecessors and competitors can do. In addition, the preloaded Seagate Enterprise NAS 7200-rpm drives (4-10TB Capacity) can take on extensive usage.

Through the onboard hardware RAID controller, users can choose between 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, or 50 RAID configuration. LaCie RAID array is thus able to deliver up to 1400 MB/s read and write speeds. Plus new Thunderbolt 3 technology allows transfer rates of up to 40 Gb/s, including daisy chaining up to 6 devices from a single host port.

Work with hours of raw footage from a camera into any video editing program in a fraction of the time, letting you edit multiple streams of ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 4444 XQ, including uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit videos. This impressive video workflow using Thunderbolt 3 also lets you daisy chain dual 4K displays or a single 5K display to the LaCie 6big. With two 4K displays, you’ll be an editing machine, able to take on any task during a tight deadline. It's even possible to power a compatible laptop through the Thunderbolt 3 connection.

These modern design aluminum enclosures keep your drives cooler longer. And with hardware designed for redundancy, even if one of the fans fail, you’re still up and running. LaCie hits the mark on every target, making their Arrays one of the best choices for your projects.
