The blazing fast new ThunderBlade Gen 2 SSD plus expandable shared storage solutions take center stage, alongside OWC RADiO live at NAB hosted by guest filmmaker and Sundance Film Festival founder Cirina Catania.
OWC today announced its itinerary for the 2019 National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) show, taking place April 6-11 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Media, entertainment and creative professionals are encouraged to visit OWC in Central Hall booth #C3647 throughout the show.
On the heels of OWC’s three recent acquisitions and its March 19 growth and expansion announcement, the company is thrilled to showcase two brilliant new storage system upgrades that deliver blazing transfer speeds and unparalleled reliability for creative professionals with storage-intensive workflows. Both the newly upgraded ThunderBlade and Jupiter mini 5-bay will be on display at NAB, along with OWC’s latest lineup of innovative Mac and PC products and solutions. OWC will also showcase an array of industry-leading storage solutions from recently-acquired industry pioneer Akitio.
ThunderBlade Gen 2: The new ThunderBlade Gen 2 is the fastest external drive OWC has ever made, capable of completing a 1TB content transfer in under four-and-a-half minutes.

And with SoftRAID, two ThunderBlades can reach dizzying heights up to 3800MB/s.
