Seagate And Lacie To Showcase Latest Storage Solutions At Photoplus Expo In New York

Media members attending the PDN PhotoPlus International Conference and Expo at Javits Convention Center in New York, Oct. 30 – Nov. 1, 2014, are invited to visit Seagate and LaCie at booth 155 for a look at the newest digital storage solutions geared toward creative professionals. In addition, Seagate and LaCie will also participate in the PhotoPlus New Product Preview & Networking event the evening of Oct. 29.


Visitors to the PhotoPlus booth can learn about the latest professional photography use cases and hear from technical experts how to speed up and streamline their workflows with the latest solutions, including:


Seagate’s premium brand, LaCie, has made significant expansions to its top-of-the-line offerings that combine smart industrial design with exceptional Thunderbolt speeds. For example:

LaCie d2 features a high-end all-aluminum unibody enclosure, dual Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0, and has been designed to be upgradable to the fastest SSD on the market (up to 1150 MB/s) – faster than the performance of the internal SSD on a late-model PC or Mac computer. The D2 enables users to reduce the time spent on backing up or transferring files, or storing and browsing through RAW Adobe™ Lightroom™ files.

LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt is one of the fastest bus-powered products on the market (speeds of up to 387 MB/s) and is built to withstand virtually any environment. The iconic hard drive is MIL-compliant (protected against accidental drops of up to 2 meters) with improved shock, dust and water resistance, making it the leading portable storage solution for action and outdoor photographers.

LaCie 2big, also featuring Thunderbolt 2, is the market’s fastest, highest-capacity dual-bay external storage solution. Delivering zero lag for Adobe Lightroom or Final Cut Pro professionals, the 2big enables users to store large photo/video libraries while editing filters – and also export libraries in half the time of single hard-disk solutions.

The LaCie 5big, geared toward video professionals looking to improve 4K post-production right on the desktop, as well as the LaCie Little Big Disk


Seagate’s new NAS portfolio helps creative professionals – regardless of IT experience – easily centralize, back up and access their business-critical files from anywhere. For example:

Seagate NAS Pro 2-bay, 4-bay and 6-bay are complete network storage and private cloud solutions for power users who require more reliability than standard desktop hard drives typically provide. The NAS Pro line features capacities of up to 30TB, along with an Intel dual-core processor and advanced vibration tolerance and management capabilities. In addition, the built-in Seagate NAS OS 4 and Sdrive™ for private cloud access make it simple to manage files from desktop or mobile devices.
