An interview from the 2015 Cine Gear LA Expo at Paramount Studios with Mark Anderson of G-Technology. From storing, transferring, editing and distributing content, G-Technology makes the workflow simpler, better and faster. G-Technology's high-performance portable and desktop drives, flexible transfer/edit solutions and fast RAID systems are all built for professional content creation environments where performance and reliability are paramount. In this interview Mark talks with us about their new G-DRIVE ev ATC with Thunderbolt and the G-DRIVE ev ATC with USB 3.0, which are enclosures for the G-DRIVE ev RaW drive. Mark also showcases the newly announced G-SPEED Studio XL & updated G-RAID with Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0.
The G-DRIVE ev RaW is designed to go with you everywhere. Fitting easily into your backpack, briefcase or purse, it’s lightweight and when coupled with the bumper, can withstand a 1.5m drop. As part of the Evolution Series, it can be, used as a standalone device, inside the ev All Terrain Case or with the G-DOCK ev with Thunderbolt for ultra-fast transfers and editing.
Made from a durable, lightweight compound making the G-DRIVE ev RaW shock-resistant and 35% lighter than the G-DRIVE ev. G-DRIVE ev RaW with Rugged Bumper is ideal for anyone requiring on-the-go access to their personal and/or professional files, photos, videos, music and more.
These travel-tough external storage solutions feature an all-terrain case (ATC) with a tethered Thunderbolt or USB 3.0 cable that shields a high-quality, lightweight removable G-DRIVE ev RaW USB hard drive. Featuring a watertight drive compartment, which floats when dropped in water, and the ability to withstand a two meter drop, data is protected from pressure, shock, water and dust. For added flexibility, the removable case is compatible with the Evolution Series, easily fitting the G-DRIVE ev or G-DRIVE ev SSD. Perfect for in-the-field-backup, edit, transfer and storage, this durable enclosure leverages a 7,200 RPM-based external hard drive to maximize transfer speed using Thunderbolt or USB 3.0. Formatted for Mac, the external drive can be easily reformatted for Windows.
