Message Text: HGST's G-Technology announced at NAB the first products in its new Studio line - the G-RAID Studio and G-SPEED Studio. The company also added the G-DRIVE ev SSD and the 500GB G-DRIVE external drive modules in its Evolution Series family.

The Studio family comes in new black enclosure and features multiple RAID options, removable enterprise-class 7,200 RPM drives, 20 gigabits per second (Gbps) Thunderbolt 2 interfaces, and 6TB hard disk drives (HDDs).

The G-SPEED Studio with hardware RAID is a four-bay Thunderbolt 2 storage solution that supports user selectable RAID 0, 1, 5 and 10. With its built-in RAID controller, the G-SPEED Studio is not tied to a single workstation and can be transported and used on a Maclaptop or desktop in the studio, edit bay or on the road. The G-SPEED Studio boasts sustained transfer rates of up to 660MB/sec in RAID 0 and can be daisy-chained via dual Thunderbolt 2 ports. This G-SPEED Studio solution ships with four removable enterprise-class hard drives, designed to support multi-stream compressed 4K and 2K workflows.

The G-SPEED Studio with enterprise-class hardware RAID will be available in May for an MSRP of $3,599.95 for 24TB, $2,699.95 for 16TB and $2,199.95 for 12TB.

The G-RAID Studio is a storage system with hardware RAID, enabling digital content-creation workflow. User-selectable in RAID 0, RAID 1 or JBOD, the G-RAID Studio features Thunderbolt 2 technology and has transfer rates up to 360MB/sec. The G-RAID Studio ships with two removable enterprise-class 7,200 RPM hard drives for total capacities up to 12TB, complete in a sleek black enclosure.

The G-RAID Studio will be available in May for a MSRP of $1,299.95 for 12TB, $849.95 for 8TB and $699.95 for 6TB.

The Evolution Series is a flexible ecosystem of G-DOCK ev docking stations and interchangeable and expandable G-DRIVE ev external drive modules with USB 3.0. As capacity or performance needs grow, simply expand and scale by using more high-capacity, high-performance external hard drive modules with the G-DOCK ev docking station to store separate projects.  For more flexibility, the new G-DRIVE ev SSD as well as the 1TB and 500GB G-DRIVE ev modules can be used with the currently shipping G-DOCK ev with Thunderbolt.
