Press Release:

LaCie 2big Dock Thunderbolt 3 Bridges the Port Gap and Delivers Massive Capacity to Streamline Creative Workflows

Today LaCie announced the next evolution of its popular 2big professional 2-bay RAID storage solution. Now with Thunderbolt™ 3 technology, the LaCie® 2big Dock delivers fast speeds and massive capacity, making it a powerhouse tool for photographers and videographers. Designed by Neil Poulton, the LaCie 2big Dock is also a sleek yet powerful docking station that provides ports for connecting other devices, a feature that many laptops have sacrificed in recent years. Through a single cable, the LaCie 2big Dock simplifies and centralizes the desktop by directly connecting to a laptop, SD Cards, Compact Flash Cards and other devices. The result is a simplified, more efficient creative workflow.

Creative professionals juggle massive amounts of data and tight timelines, so capacity and speed are critical. With up to 20TB of storage—a twenty five percent increase over the previous version—the LaCie 2big Dock offers professionals enough space for large video and photo libraries including up to 650 hours of 4K 30fps footage* or 200,000 raw images**. With speeds of up to 440MB/s, users can transfer one hour of 4K footage in one minute***. It also means almost zero lag time when browsing photo libraries in Adobe® Lightroom. Working with compressed 4K or HD footage, videographers can edit quickly and smoothly in Adobe Premiere®Pro.

More than storage, the LaCie 2big Dock is a powerful docking station that helps photographers and videographers simplify their workflows. Front-facing SD and CF Card slots allow the pro to directly ingest files off memory cards from a drone, DSLR, GoPro® and other devices into Adobe Lightroom or Premiere Pro. The USB 3.0 hub charges a phone or connects a shuttle drive or digital camera to offload footage or files. Via DisplayPort, professionals can connect the LaCie 2big Dock to high-resolution 720-1080p or even 4K displays. Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports can also power a compatible laptop while simultaneously daisy-chaining up to five additional Thunderbolt or one USB-C drive. Plus, the USB 3.1 port enables universal compatibility with USB-C and USB 3.0 computers via the included adapter cable. Thunderbolt 2 compatibility is also possible with an adapter (sold separately).

Other key features of the new LaCie 2big Dock include:

  • Seagate® IronWolf Pro enterprise-class drives and RAID optimization for superior power management and reliability
  • LaCie RAID Manager that easily monitors system’s health with audible alarm and email alerts
  • Efficient cooling with aluminum enclosure and thermoregulated fan for professional reliability
  • A five-year limited warranty

The new LaCie 2big Dock will be available in 12TB, 16TB or 20TB capacities through LaCie Resellers this summer. It will be showcased for the first time at the NAB Show in Las Vegas next week. Attendees can stop by the LaCie booth (SL4527) to see the LaCie 2big Dock in action. For more information, visit www.lacie.com.

* On average, 1 hour of 4K 30fps compressed footage creates 30GB of data.
** 20TB can store approximately 200K raw photos.

Drobo announces ‘easiest and fastest ever’ 5-bay NAS storage with 5N2

23 Mar

Digital storage solutions company Drobo has updated its 5N desktop network attached device with a new version that it claims is easier to use and faster than any previous NAS it has produced. An upgraded processor makes the Drobo 5N2 twice as fast as the previous model, and it comes equipped with a pair of Gigabit Ethernet ports so two units can be connected for additional capacity and safety via what Drobo calls Adaptive Link Bonding.

The 5-bay device can accept up to 64TB total capacity and allows users to add and switch drives at any time. The 5N2 is happy to accept spinning and solid state storage, and can accommodate both varieties at the same time. One of the benefits of the company’s BeyondRaid system is that disk capacities don’t have to match and users can top-up the system using empty bays and can upgrade existing individual disks to higher capacities when needed. As the unit doesn’t use trays or carriers new disks simply slot in.

Drobo says the 5N2 is aimed at home networks, media professionals and small businesses and that up to 250 user accounts can be created. The device takes only ten minutes to set up and account holders can use a range of Apps to access data remotely and via smartphones and tablets. Read and write speeds are said to average around 190-197MB/s.

The Drobo 5N2 is available now and costs $ 499/€599/£518 with a pair of Ethernet cables. For more information see the Drobo website.

Press Release

offsite copy of data. DroboDR is simple to setup and manage and replicates data to another 5N2, ensuring availability in case of disaster. Furthermore, the remote 5N2 stores all user account information, resulting in a quick and painless recovery with a single click in the Drobo Dashboard. The Drobo 5N2 also comes with an internal battery that protects against data loss during a power outage.

Customer Driven Focus

The 5N2 is the 7th new product introduced after the company underwent an acquisition and management change in 2015. Drobo is committed to introducing innovative products that preserve simplicity and customer confidence. The 5N2 includes a two-year warranty to extend peace of mind for users.

The 5N2 is the easiest to use NAS on the market today with automation usually reserved for more expensive solutions. This ease of use is what customers expect from Drobo’s award-winning focus on simplicity. This is evident in Drobo’s unique features such as:

Internal battery back-up for zero data loss during a power outage
Expandability with any size disk
Award winning ease of use setup and management dashboard
mSATA cache for speedy access to frequently used data
Ability to mix and match any size HDD’s and SSD’s

Price and Customer Loyalty Program

Boom To Busted: Abandoned British Bomb Storage Depots

13 Mar

[ By Steve in Abandoned Places & Architecture. ]

bomb-store-1a

War is over so can we give peace a chance? These abandoned British bomb stores and ammo bunkers are looking peaceful indeed now that the explosives are gone.

bomb-store-1b

bomb-store-1f

The Brits built up their military infrastructure explosively, pardon the pun, before and during the World Wars. Peacetime saw a corresponding deflation with hardened assets such as bomb stores typically abandoned instead of being dismantled.

bomb-store-1c

bomb-store-1d

One such quieted bomb store can be found at RAF Wittering near Peterborough in Cambridgeshire, England. Established in 1916 as an base for zeppelin-fighting BE2C and BE12 aircraft, the base was used by the USAAF in World War II and became the “Home of the Harrier” in the 1970s.

bomb-store-1e

After the war, the base’s bomb stores were expanded and toughened to accommodate nuclear weapons. Flickr user Graeme Hutton (graemehutton) visited the disused and derelict bomb stores at the Wittering Ammo Dump in late July of 2014 and snapped dozens of evocative photos.

RAF Chilmark

bomb-store-2a

bomb-store-2b

bomb-store-2f

RAF Chilmark in Wiltshire was built in 1936 and by 1965 it was the RAF’s only remaining ammunition supply depot. The base was shut down entirely in 1995 but it took the better part of two years to clear live ammunition from the site. Flickr user Newage2 visited the base’s bomb store in early February of 2016.

bomb-store-2c

bomb-store-2d

bomb-store-2e

RAF Chilmark also houses a civil defense bunker built in 1985 and sold to private interests in 1997. In February of 2017, a police raid revealed the bunker had been converted to a large-scale marijuana grow-op. “There are approximately 20 rooms in the building, split over two floors, each 200 feet long and 70 feet wide,” stated Detective Inspector Paul Franklin of the Wiltshire Police Dedicated Crime Team. “Almost every single room had been converted for the wholesale production of cannabis plants, and there was a large amount of evidence of previous crops. This was an enormous set up.” Up in smoke, as they say.

RAF Newton

bomb-store-3c

bomb-store-3a

bomb-store-3b

RAF Newton in Nottinghamshire was built in 1939 and closed in the year 2000. The site is gradually being converted into an industrial estate but not without controversy: radioactive contamination from Radium used to paint luminescent dials in the 1940’s has been detected. Flickr user Goldie87 visited disused parts of RAF Newton in late February of 2008.

LaCie unveils Thunderbolt 3 desktop storage devices

01 Nov

LaCie has launched three new Thunderbolt 3 desktop storage devices, the 12big, 6big and Bolt3. All three devices are, according to LaCie, the fastest desktop storage solutions currently on the market, making them suitable for storing and editing 4K and 6K video content, among other things. The Bolt3 offers 2TB of storage, the 6big offers up to 60TB, and the 12big offers up to 120TB.

The Bolt is the smallest of the three products, offering speeds up to 2800MB/s. According to LaCie, this model can handle raw video from a Blackmagic or RED camera, and can be used to transcode up to 6K footage using Adobe Premiere Pro or something similar. It only takes about 5 minutes to transfer a terabyte of 4K ProRes 4444 XQ video from the Bolt3 to the 12big.

The LaCie 6big offers speeds up to 1400MB/s and the 12big has speeds up to 2600MB/s. These models can be used to edit uncompressed 10-bit and 12-bit HD videos or multiple streams of ProRes 422 HQ and ProRes 4444XQ footage. The company also says raw photos can be accessed and edited in Lightroom without lag. A custom Pelican Storm case will be available for these two models.

The storage devices will be available this quarter starting at the following prices:

  • LaCie Bolt3: $ 1,999
  • LaCie 6big: $ 3,199
  • LaCie 12big: $ 6,399
  • Pelican Case: $ 349

Press release:

LaCie Announces World’s Fastest Desktop Storage and Complete Thunderbolt 3 Portfolio for Creative Professionals

CUPERTINO, CALIF. – Today, LaCie, the premium brand from Seagate Technology plc (NASDAQ: STX), announced its Thunderbolt™ 3 portfolio of storage solutions aimed at helping video professionals excel with ultra high-resolution footage. First, the LaCie® Bolt3 combines Thunderbolt 3 speed with the latest M.2 PCIe SSDs to create the world’s fastest desktop drive. In addition, the LaCie 12big Thunderbolt 3 and 6big Thunderbolt 3 are ready to handle massive amounts of content thanks to fast transfer speeds, RAID 5/6 security and enterprise-class drives. These storage solutions, design by Neil Poulton, are ideal companions to the all-new MacBook Pro.

For the Bolt3, LaCie harnessed the breakthrough performance potential of Thunderbolt 3 and paired it with two M.2 PCIe SSDs striped into a 2TB volume. Bolt3 delivers record speeds of up to 2800MB/s and cuts valuable time off of post-production workflows, such as ingesting RAW footage from RED® or Blackmagic® cinema cameras or transcoding 4/5/6K footage using Adobe® Premiere® Pro or DaVinci Resolve. What’s more, videographers can transfer a terabyte of 4K ProRes 4444 XQ footage from the LaCie Bolt3 to RAID storage—such as the LaCie 12big Thunderbolt 3—in only 5 minutes and 11 seconds*.

The LaCie Bolt3 is engineered for long term reliability—from the enclosure to the internal components—to endure intensive storage tasks. Each product is individually Computer Numerical Control machined from solid aluminum blocks for rigid durability and heat dissipation. Effective cooling helps to ensure long-term component health. The stand securely docks the product with powerful neodymium magnets—and detaches for easy transport.

With up to 120TB of massive capacity, the breakthrough performance of Thunderbolt 3 and RAID 5/6, the LaCie 12big, and the new LaCie 6big help video professionals meet the data demands of 4/5/6K cameras. Both feature Seagate enterprise-class drives with 256MB cache and 7200RPM for superb accessibility, reliability and robust performance.

“From ultra high-resolution cameras to virtual reality to drones, the new experiences that content creators can bring to life are truly exciting,” said Tim Bucher, Senior Vice President of Seagate and LaCie Branded Solutions. “Creating these experiences generates unprecedented amounts of data while requiring extreme performance, and today we’re thrilled to help our customers by offering best-in-class storage solutions that excel in even the most demanding video workflows.”

Thunderbolt 3 speeds of up to 2600MB/s for LaCie 12big and 1400MB/s for LaCie 6big slash time off nearly every post-production workflow task. Users can then edit multiple streams of ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 4444 XQ, as well as uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video. What’s more, photographers can transfer RAW photos quickly and edit in Adobe Lightroom without lag. Plus, with up to 120TB of capacity, the LaCie 12big can store 100 hours of 4K ProRes 4444 XQ footage in RAID 5*.

With double the video bandwidth of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 lets a user daisy chain dual 4K displays or a single 5K display to the LaCie 12big or LaCie 6big. With two 4K displays, users can spread out their workspace by dedicating one display to the timeline and the other to previewing 4K footage, for example. It’s even possible to power a compatible laptop through the USB-C cable**. Additionally, the user can connect to USB 3.0 computers via the included USB-C to USB-A cable.

The LaCie 12big and LaCie 6big are engineered to handle demanding video workflows. Front-accessible drives offer convenient and quick drive replacement and front-facing drive status LEDs help the user keep track of drive health and RAID build status. The aluminum enclosure dissipates heat far better than plastic, while two thermoregulated fans pull heat away from internal components. Both the LaCie 12big and LaCie 6big are protected by a five-year limited warranty that covers drives, enclosure and spare parts.

LaCie has also partnered with Pelican Products to offer custom cases to safely transport the LaCie 12big or 6big to and from set. The Pelican™ Storm Case™ is an injection-molded case made of HPX® high-performance resin that is virtually unbreakable and resistant to dents and shatter. The custom, durable foam configuration houses a LaCie 12big or 6big, multiple LaCie Rugged® drives and accessories such as cords or a power supply. The cases are lightweight, airtight, watertight and backed by Pelican’s lifetime warranty***.

AVAILABILITY
The LaCie Bolt3 will come in a 2TB SSD capacity for $ 1999.00. The LaCie 6big will come in 24TB, 36TB, 48TB and 60TB capacities starting at $ 3199.00. The LaCie 12big will come in 48TB, 72TB, 96TB and 120TB capacities starting at $ 6399.00. The custom Pelican Storm cases start at $ 349.00.

** Delivers up to 15W to power compatible laptops.

Facebook Moments app adds support for full-resolution photo storage

13 Sep

Facebook Moments, a private photo-sharing mobile app, has been updated with support for full-resolution images. Previously, Facebook Moments didn’t store the full-res version of users’ images, and makes it possible now when a user ‘favorites’ an image within 30 days of it being uploaded or shared.

In addition to adding full-res image support, Facebook also now makes it possible to share a Moments photo album with others (regardless of whether they’re on the platform) using a web link. Those who receive the link to the private album can then join it and, if they’d like, add their own images to the collection. The web link can be accessed via the album’s menu by choosing ‘Share link.’

Facebook Moments is available for both iOS and Android.

ZTE nubia 11 features optical image stabilization and plenty of storage

30 Jun

Chinese manufacturer ZTE has launched its latest flagship-level device, the nubia Z11. Looking at its specifications the new model has the potential to be a serious alternative for mobile photographers for several reasons. On paper, the camera module looks very similar to the one on the recently unveiled OnePlus 3 and comes with a 16MP Sony IMX298 1/2.8″ sensor that offers on-chip phase detection and a pixel size of 1.12 micron. The lens is protected by a sapphire glass element and  comes with a fast F2.0 aperture and an optical image stabilization system. The front camera captures 8MP images on a sensor with a 1.4 micron pixel size. The lens on the front module covers a wide angle view of 80 degrees and features a F2.4 aperture.

Photographers and frequent video shooters will also like the generous on-board memory. The Z11 comes in two versions, either with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, or 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. On both models storage can be further expanded via a microSD-slot.

Photos can be viewed and edited on a 5.5-inch Full-HD display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 3, and inside the Android 6.0 OS is powered by Qualcomm’s current top-end chipset Snapdragon 820. A fingerprint reader increases security and the 3,000 mAh battery supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 standard. The high-end components are built into an elegant looking all-metal case with extremely thin display bezels. In China the nubia Z11 will be available from July 6 at approximately $ 375 for the model with 4GB RAM and $ 525 for the higher-end version. No information on availability in other markets is available yet.

Behind the Scenes: Hidden Collections Storage at the Smithsonian

22 Apr

[ By WebUrbanist in Art & Photography & Video. ]

smithsonian behind the scenes

It is hard to imagine just how extensive, colorful and generally amazing the plant, animal, fossil and rock archives at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History (NMNH) in Washington, D.C. really are … at least until you see the shelves slide out, as shown in this stunning photo series (by Chip Clark).

museum paleobiology

museum rocks minerals

The museum staff has meticulously collected and cataloged plant and animal species as well as rock, fossils and other organic wonders from around the world. Some are on display, but many more live behind the scenes, shelved for reference and study.

museum botany collection

museum zoology collection

Examining these artifacts helps give researchers and scientists insights into biological diversity and evolutionary relationships, but also assist environmentalists studying conservation and climate change.

museum botany algae

smithsonian butterfly collection

There is something particularly humanizing about these images, shot over the decades by a single staff photographer, which feature not on the each collection but in many cases his colleagues as well.

museum mammals

museum anthropology

Departments shown here include botany and algae, invertebrate zoology, mammals, mineral sciences, paleobiology and anthropology.
