If you’re a content creator in need of professional-grade storage drives, Western Digital’s newly unveiled SanDisk Professional line of premium storage solutions is just for you.
Professional photographers and creatives across a wide range of industries are always working with data that’s in a perpetual state of motion. Whether working with photos, high-resolution videos, or illustrations, creatives need to save, transfer, offload, share, and archive their data. The new SanDisk Professional family of purpose-built drives, launched at Western Digital’s Flash Perspective earlier this week, are designed to offer high performance and reliability for all of these things.
“As a professional photographer, one of my biggest concerns is being able to deliver assets as promised,” says adventure photographer and filmmaker Lucas Gilman. “When I am traveling the globe looking for the right shots, I heavily rely on the best equipment to help me get the job done.
“I’ve spent many years perfecting my workflow and am constantly looking for new ways to improve it, which is why I am so excited about the new SanDisk Professional brand. The new portfolio is all about managing content that is constantly in motion and I believe it’s going to be a real game-changer for all kinds of creative professionals around the world.”
The new SanDisk® Professional line combines the legacies of the world-renown SanDisk consumer brand as well as the pro-oriented G-Technology™ brand, which has been the storage choice of Hollywood professionals for decades. The SanDisk Professional lineup now comprises 16 modular workflow products. Here’s a rundown:
PRO-CINEMA CFExpress VPG400 Memory Card
