Think bigger—we've got you covered. Large HD capacity on your desktop, up to 2600MB/s speeds, and RAID 5/6, the LaCie 12big and 6big Thunderbolt 3 lets you rein in the stampede of data from ultra-hi–res cameras.

The absolute fastest I/O.
For the 6big and 12big, LaCie harnessed the breakthrough performance potential of the Thunderbolt 3 I/O and squeezed the absolute best speeds out of the hard drives. We added a hardware RAID controller and 7200RPM drives, and the result is astonishing 12big speeds of up to 2600MB/s—and 2400MB/s in RAID 5.

For lightning-fast video workflows
That kind of speed can slash time off nearly every task in your post-production workflow. Ingest hours of RAW footage from a Blackmagic cinema camera into Adobe Premiere Pro in a fraction of the time. Then edit multiple streams of ProRes 422 (HQ), ProRes 4444 XQ, as well as uncompressed HD 10-bit and 12-bit video. For big projects packed with high-def clips, thumbnail and preview rendering becomes much more responsive.

And for your smartest workspace.
With double the video bandwidth of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 lets you daisy chain dual 4K displays or a single 5K display to the LaCie 12big or 6big. With two 4K displays, you can spread out your workspace by dedicating one display to your timeline and the other to previewing 4K footage, for example. It's even possible to power a compatible laptop through the Thunderbolt 3 connection***.

Compatible with Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 it’s possible to connect the 6big and 12big to devices with previous generations of Thunderbolt. Just use a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 adapter (sold separately).

Instead of buying a new storage device every time you need more capacity, invest up front in a future-proof, RAID-protected solution. Improve data access and security, which can save money in the long term.

Divide your storage into multiple volumes according to your workflow. Create one volume for ingesting transcoded clips and current projects and another for archiving final footage.

Thunderbolt 3 lets you daisy chain up to six devices to a computer via a single cable. So you could connect up to six LaCie 12big together, bringing a jaw-dropping 720TB to your computer.

Tough. Ready. Scalable.
Both LaCie 12big and 6big feature Seagate IronWolf Pro to handle multi-drive environments with a wide range of capacities. Designed with the creative professional in mind, IronWolf Pro features RAID optimization and superior power management to enable user workloads of up to 300TB/year. Capture, edit and deliver projects with optimal reliability and system agility. A 5-year limited warranty is included on IronWolf Pro drives to give you extra peace of mind.

Our biggest design for the most exacting video pros.
