Now with Thunderbolt™ 3 technology, the LaCie® 2big Dock delivers fast speeds and massive capacity, making it a powerhouse tool for photographers and videographers.
The 2big Dock is the next evolution of LaCie’s popular 2big professional 2-bay RAID storage solution. Designed by Neil Poulton, the LaCie 2big Dock is also a sleek yet powerful docking station that provides ports for connecting other devices, a feature that many laptops have sacrificed in recent years. Through a single cable, the LaCie 2big Dock simplifies and centralizes the desktop by directly connecting to a laptop, SD Cards, Compact Flash Cards and other devices. The result is a simplified, more efficient creative workflow.
With up to 20TB of storage—a twenty five percent increase over the previous version—the LaCie 2big Dock offers professionals enough space for large video and photo libraries including up to 650 hours of 4K 30fps footage* or 200,000 raw images**.
With speeds of up to 440MB/s, users can transfer one hour of 4K footage in one minute***. It also means almost zero lag time when browsing photo libraries in Adobe® Lightroom. Working with compressed 4K or HD footage, videographers can edit quickly and smoothly in Adobe Premiere® Pro.
- Front-facing SD and CF Card slots: allow users to directly ingest files off memory cards from a drone, DSLR, GoPro® and other devices into Adobe Lightroom or Premiere Pro.
- USB 3.0 hub: charges a phone or connects a shuttle drive or digital camera to offload footage or files.
- DisplayPort: users can connect the LaCie 2big Dock to high-resolution 720-1080p or even 4K displays.
- Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports: can power a compatible laptop while simultaneously daisy-chaining up to five additional Thunderbolt or one USB-C drive.
- USB 3.1 port: enables universal compatibility with USB-C and USB 3.0 computers via the included adapter cable.
Thunderbolt 2 compatibility is also possible with an adapter (sold separately).
