Thunderbolt™ Technology

Cory Popp | Cinematographer

Forward thinking.
Backward compatible.

If you want to upgrade your editing workflow, you shouldn't have to replace everything you own. After all, technology is supposed to support the way you work, not demand that you reinvent it.

That's why we've designed LaCie big RAID storage to be universally compatible with just about every USB and Thunderbolt™ connection. No matter the way you work or the hardware you use, LaCie big will bring large-scale, high-redundancy storage to your editing applications.

Compatible now.
Capable tomorrow.

LaCie big supports ultrafast Thunderbolt™ 3 connections, but doesn't insist on them. You can use Thunderbolt™ 3 to connect to any display, Thunderbolt™ or USB device via a compatible cable or adapter.

Thunderbolt™ 3 (USB-C) is fully compatible with your existing devices and displays. Use the drop-down and find out which adapter or cable you'll need to connect to the ports on all your favorite devices.

Unleash peak performance.
With Thunderbolt™ 3.

Thunderbolt™ 3 isn't just ultrafast – it's ultra-versatile.

Transferring data and power in both directions, you can connect your 4K display, backup your high-resolution videos, and charge your notebook. Daisy-chain up to six devices to the same port. Digitize from a video source while simultaneously playing back high-resolution footage.

All without compromising on performance or compatibility with your older Thunderbolt™ and USB devices.
