Recognizing that the most fragile time in your filmwork is between capture and workstation production, OWC (Other World Computing) has introduced three mobile storage solutions to save and protect your video in the field (even in the most rugged environments) and get it home safely for production.

The pocket-sized Envoy Pro mini may look like a standard thumb drive but it provides full-sized, desktop-class SSD performance with 120 and 240GB capacities (480GB available late this summer). Your on-the-go storage companion uses advanced controller technologies to provide sustained transfer speeds up to 433MB/s over USB 3.0. The sleek, tapered design connects easily to a MacBook Air without lifting the computer to ensure the device and system's connections are not disturbed.

For style and capacity, OWC upgraded the Envoy Pro EX to provide 1TB of storage for the ultimate in portable, USB 3.0 bus-powered performance. And because it's USB 3.0 bus-powered, the Envoy Pro EX requires no AC power adapter, making it the ideal Plug and Play external storage solution. The anodized aluminum body protects the 1TB enterprise-proven Aura 6G SSD that delivers high capacity and ultra-reliable data storage.

For safe, rugged high-capacity, high-performance storage; OWC introduced the new ThunderBay 4 mini with SoftRAID 5. Whether you choose enterprise-class SSDs (4TB capacity) or the 8TB HD solution, you get Thunderbolt 2 performance (sustained speeds up to 1,284MB/s and flexible SoftRAID 5 Mac-supported data protection. You can quickly change the RAID configuration to optimize workflow performance and data redundancy to meet specific project requirements--all in a rugged case that will protect your drives and content in the field and throughout the production process.

These mobile video storage solutions are just three of a complete family of OWC storage products that include Blackmagic-certified, high-performance external SSDs with capacities of up to 32TB--SoftRAID- enabled ThunderBay 4 storage for large, 4K video production/post production.
