Western Digital intros WD Pro Series mobile storage

Western Digital has introduced a new company product – the so-called WD Pro Series: My Passport Wireless Pro Wi-Fi mobile storage and My Cloud Pro Series network attached storage (NAS). Designed specifically for the creative community, the WD Pro Series enables seamless transfer of content between devices, with classic WD reliability and speed, regardless of whether users are on a remote shoot, in the studio or editing at home.

“Portability, reliability, capacity, speed and interoperability are crucial for creative professionals, whose very livelihoods rely on the strength of the technology they use to store their life’s work,” said Sven Rathjen, vice president of marketing for content solutions at WD. “We created the WD Pro Series as a comprehensive, feature-rich storage solution designed to fit seamlessly into their workflow, regardless of where the work actually happens, so storage, transfer, back-up, editing and even streaming options are readily available.”

The My Passport Wireless Pro Wi-Fi mobile storage allows creative professionals and enthusiasts to automatically backup files from compatible cameras, as well as save, edit and transfer work seamlessly from up to eight other devices connected to the drive. Tethered connections are also available for faster transfers and include a built-in SD card reader as well as a USB 2.0 port. Available in capacities up to 3TB, the My Passport Wireless Pro device also features up to 10 hours of battery life* and a built-in battery pack that can even be used to charge phones and other devices like digital or video cameras.

The My Cloud Pro Series NAS devices offer up to 32 GB of storage memory and are optimized to import from cameras/memory card readers and other USB storage with a simple one touch backup button. The devices also feature a hardware accelerated video processor that is powerful enough to take, edit, store and stream content to and from popular formats, including 4K video. These capabilities compliment a robust, integrated application suite, which includes compatibility with Plex Media Server for storing and optimizing media libraries and compatibility with Adobe’s Creative Cloud for editing and finalizing them.

The My Passport Wireless Pro Wi-Fi mobile storage is now available for a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of USD 229.99 – USD 249.99, depending on capacity. The My Cloud Pro Series NAS devices sell for now USD 399.99 – USD 1649.99, again depending on capacity and price. The My Cloud Pro Series also offers a 2-year limited warranty for diskless models and 3-year limited warranty for populated models.
