Product Description

LaCie 12Big Thunderbolt 3 - 48TB

With up to 120TB of capacity on your desktop, up to 2600MB/s speeds, and RAID 5/6, the LaCie 12big Thunderbolt 3 lets you rein in the stampede of data from 4/5/6K cameras.

The very fastest I/O.

LaCie harnessed the breakthrough performance potential of the Thunderbolt 3 I/O and squeezed out speeds of up to 2600MB/s-and 2400MB/s in RAID 5-to help slash time off nearly every task in your post-production workflow. Ingest RAW footage from a Blackmagic cinema camera into Adobe Premiere Pro, edit uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video, and fly through thumbnail and preview rendering on your biggest projects.

For your smartest workspace.

With double the video bandwidth of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 lets you daisy chain dual 4K displays or a single 5K display to the LaCie 12big. It's even possible to power a compatible laptop through the Thunderbolt 3 connection.

Bigger in every way. Except in footprint.

Get up to 120TB on your desktop-in the same footprint as an iPad Air. Invest up front in a future-proof, RAID-protected solution to improve data access and security, which can help you save money in the long term.
