Posted by Wayne Clark on


SanDisk Professional has introduced cutting-edge storage devices, specifically tailored for the broadcasting, media, and entertainment industries. These pro-grade storage solutions (SanDisk Professional G-DRIVE PROJECT, Professional G-RAID MIRROR, and PRO-CINEMA CFexpress Type B Card) feature high speeds and a variety of features to optimize the video production process.


SanDisk Professional G-RAID MIRROR

In the realm of data storage, the importance of redundancy cannot be overstated. Aimed at professionals who cannot afford to lose any data, the G-RAID MIRROR addresses this concern head-on as it comes with two 7200 RPM Ultrastar Enterprise-class HDDs that can be configured in RAID 1 (Mirroring) mode. This configuration automatically duplicates your data onto the second drive. The G-RAID MIRROR offers up to 44TB of maximum capacity in its most expansive model, which provides substantial room for projects and backups alike.


The device also offers an option to switch to JBOD or RAID 0 configurations by flipping a switch, eliminating the need for additional software. This versatility makes it adaptable to different workflow requirements.


For those who use iPads in their creative process, the G-RAID MIRROR is compatible with tablets having a USB Type-C port. This feature can be especially beneficial for professionals using mobile devices for content creation or management.

SanDisk Professional G-DRIVE PROJECT

The G-DRIVE PROJECT is a portable hard drive designed as a content creator’s reliable companion. Built with a rugged exterior, this drive targets professionals who require both portability and durability. Inside its robust chassis lies a 7200 RPM Ultrastar Enterprise-class hard drive, known for its reliability and speed, with read/write speeds of up to 260MB/s in its 22TB model.

What sets the G-DRIVE PROJECT apart is its Mag slot, a feature aimed at facilitating high-speed offloading and editing directly from a modular component. Essentially, you can capture content on a Mag from your camera and then effortlessly move it to the G-DRIVE PROJECT. This seamless transition can be valuable in time-sensitive project environments.

The G-DRIVE PROJECT also features a Thunderbolt 3 interface, which ensures quick data transfers and allows for daisy-chaining up to five other devices. This capability provides a flexible approach to constructing a digital content creation workflow. It also maintains backward compatibility with USB 3.2 Gen 2 for those working in Windows environments.


For those who struggle with cable management, the G-DRIVE PROJECT comes with color-coded cable indicators, taking the guesswork out of optimizing device performance. Coupling this minor detail with everything else helps make the PROJECT a comprehensive solution for storage needs.
