OWC Showcases Innovation, Technology and Performance Solutions at NAMM Show 2020

OWC has solidified its plans for The NAMM Show, taking place January 16-19 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Attendees can visit OWC in Hall A, Booth #11902, to see the best in creative workflow solutions, as well as meet and greet a number of musicians, DJs and photographers.

Inspired by Artists. Engineered to be the Best.

OWC continues its 30+-year tradition of providing unrestrained storage and connectivity solutions for professionals across creative fields, including musicians, producers and photographers. A few of the newest releases available in the booth will be: 

  • ThunderBay 4 mini – With four 2.5-inch drive bays, ThunderBay 4 mini transforms SSDs and HDDs into a pro-grade, Thunderbolt 3 storage solution in a compact design. The rugged heat-dissipating aluminum enclosure features two Thunderbolt 3 ports for up to 1556MB/s speeds, so you can breeze through personal and business backups all the way up to today’s highest resolution audio, photo, and video formats. Also available with Thunderbolt 2!

  • Accelsior 4M2 – OWC’s fastest SSD ever with over 6,000MB/s speed for high bandwidth needs, including large format video editing, VR/AR/MR environments, and extreme gaming. Available in capacities up to 8.0TB, Accelsior 4M2 is the ultimate performance drive for Mac Pro 2019, Mac Pro 2012 and 2010, and PC towers, offering silent cooling via a finned heat sink cover and installation versatility with a half-length x8/x16 design. 

  • OWC Memory – the new Mac Pro tower means more power, and OWC is here to help users make the most of their new machine. New Mac Pro owners can save up to 65% on memory upgrades through OWC’s Memory trade-in rebate program. Purchasing the base model Mac Pro and upgrading with memory from OWC allows users to max out their new machines to boost performance levels, work with larger files, speed up render times and more, at incredible cost savings. OWC Memory is also available for almost every other Mac and PC, for users across the board.
