"In early 2007, LaCie was the first vendor to ship worldwide an external solution for professional Hi-Def video recording for both Mac and Windows. Since that time, Blu-ray technology has proven to be the dominant source for video recording and playback," said Patrick Salin, LaCie Business Development Manager. "Burning up to 50GB of data can take a reasonable amount of time, so doubling burn speeds not only increases work performance, but provides a cost-effective, long-term archival process for storing data to sturdy scratch-resistant media.
LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drives come with full-featured Roxio software including Easy Media Creator® for Windows, and Toast® Titanium for Mac. Easy Media Creator and Toast Titanium products are easy-to-use burning applications that provide a timesaving solution for regularly backing up important files at an impressive data transfer rate.
Blu-ray 50GB discs offer 10x more capacity than a single layer DVD. This increased capacity gives professionals the freedom to choose much higher bit rate codecs when mastering content, ultimately improving picture quality. For increased audio quality, Blu-ray technology allows for up to eight channels of 192kHz/32 audio streams.
LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drives are available now and widely available via LaCie's specialized dealer network at the suggested retail price of $649.99. For more product information, visit www.lacie.com.
