Meeting the needs of today’s
4K professionals
Sony is introducing the new high speed and high capacity PSZ-RA-Series HDD Raid Drive that provides flexible and efficient storing of data not only in the studio, but also while on location.

The rise of 4K video production comes with an increasing demand for fast and high capacity data transfer solutions.

Ideal for reliable outdoor use, the portable and rugged RAID drive is highly durable due to its unique construction. The internal and external dumpers protect the bare drive against vibrations and shocks as high as MIL50G/11ms (in nonoperating mode). The drive is also delivered with a built-in carrying handle with a tough, easy-to-carry carton box to protect the product against damage during transportation.
Available in two capacities
4TB PSZ-RA4T and 6TB PSZ-RA6T – the new PSZ-RA-Series HDD RAID drive includes USB 3.0 and dual Thunderbolt2 ports that are 25 times faster than FireWire 800. Furthermore, the dual Thunderbolt ports support daisy chain up to 6 units. Flexibility is further enhanced with a choice of Hardware RAID 0, RAID 1 or JBOD modes.

Memory Media Utility software is supplied for easy media management. Users can use this software to format their drive, check the remaining capacity, the file system or the RAID mode. This software also alerts them when the drive needs to be replaced. For more details, please visit www.sony.net/mmu/
