LaCie d2 External Blu-ray Professional BD-R And BD-RE Drive, Model 301856U

Engineered for professional video authoring houses, the LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drive records, rewrites, and plays back high-definition (HD) video. Store up to four hours of HD video on a 50GB** disc—about 10 times as much as a DVD. Shoot HD videos from your camcorder, author the videos, and burn them without any quality loss using multiple video codecs (MPEG2, AVC, VC-1). Now you can store large amounts of valuable administrative documents, audio asset libraries, raw video shoots and multiple image files on a single disc with complete peace of mind. The LaCie d2 Blu-ray Drive’s writing process ensures record authenticity and longevity on sturdy write-once discs with an enhanced scratch-resistant hard coating surface. It also offers a packet writing option. By choosing Blu-ray technology, you get safe storage with a low cost-per-gigabyte.
