Western Digital Debuts SanDisk Professional Line of Premium, Pro-Grade Storage Solutions

Western Digital® has just launched the SanDisk Professional™ line of premium storage solutions, cards, card readers and a professional-quality reader docking station offering an unsurpassed combination of quality, reliability, speed and performance. The new premium line was created by combining the company’s professional-grade G-Technology™ products with the trust and awareness of the popular SanDisk® consumer brand.

According to Jim Welsh, Senior VP at Western Digital, “Expanding our brand family with SanDisk Professional allows us to offer advanced solutions to people around the world who rely on the best technology available for their inspiring work.”

The new SanDisk Professional series features 16 modular workflow solutions that include the PRO-CINEMA CFexpress VPG400 card—an extremely rugged CFexpress card for those who need unsurpassed performance with a minimum video recording rate of 400MB/s.* Great for both amateurs and serious photographers shooting videos, the new card is also a top choice for the broadcast and cinema industries and will be available this summer.

The new SanDisk Professional line includes four PRO-READER devices featuring a USB-C interface supporting SuperSpeed USB transfer at 10Gbps. Also targeted for summer availability, the PRO-READERs are compatible with the latest camera media, including CFast, CFexpress, RED MINI-MAG®, CF, microSD, and SD cards.

There’s also the revolutionary SanDisk Professional PRO-DOCK 4—a four bay reader docking station with a Thunderbolt 3 interface designed to save critical time on multi-camera productions. It works seamlessly with the new PRO-READERs to enable up to four simultaneous card offloads and is targeted for summer delivery.

In terms of storage options, the SanDisk Professional lineup includes a new 4TB** G-DRIVE™ ArmorLock™ Encrypted NVMe™ SSD along with the trusted line up of G-DRIVE™ ultra-rugged portable drives, desktop devices featuring enterprise-grade Ultrastar® drives, and G-RAID™ and G-RAID SHUTTLE transportable, enterprise-class RAID solutions (now featuring both Thunderbolt 3 and USB-C support) that offer an exceptional range of reliable, high-performance, high-capacity drives for everything from transfer to 100TB+** backup and archive for all types of mission-critical content. The broad range of new drives are expected to begin rolling out by early June.

Adventure photographer and Filmmaker Lucas Gilman says there’s no room for error in his work, noting, “For years I’ve relied on SanDisk and G-Technology solutions because they enable me to focus on the moment with confidence that my creativity won’t be interrupted.”
