Video editing
RAW images from a Blackmagic® Cinema Camera can be quickly imported to Adobe® Premiere® Pro. Then edit multiple streams of ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 4444 XQ, as well as uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video. For big projects packed with high-def clips, thumbnail and preview rendering becomes much more responsive.
With the large bandwidth, the Thunderbolt 3 lets you daisy chain dual 4K displays or a single 5K display to the LaCie 6big or 6big. With two 4K displays, you can spread out your workspace by dedicating one display to your timeline and the other to previewing 4K footage, for example. It's even possible to power a compatible laptop through the Thunderbolt 3 connection.
*Actual user capacity may be less, depending on operating environment. For RAID products, storage capacity is based on RAID 0 mode.
