Lexar has expanded its Professional Workflow line to include 512GB and 256GB USB 3.0 storage drives, and the new Lexar Professional Workflow HR2, a four-bay Thunderbolt 2 reader hub, as well as the new Lexar Professional Workflow CR2, a CFast 2.0 Thunderbolt 2 reader.
The new Professional Workflow DD512 and DD256 storage drives give photographers and videographers the power to back up images and video files from multiple memory cards at once.
The Professional Workflow DD512 and DD256 offer read transfer speeds up to 450MB per second and write speeds up to 245MB per second.* Additionally, the drives include an LED capacity meter that allows users to see available storage space at a glance. Designed to enable fast transfer and back up of RAW images, high-res photos, and HD, 3D, and 4K video, the drives can also be removed from the hub and used individually.
The Lexar Professional Workflow HR2 and CR2 give professional photographers and videographers the ability to quickly transfer 4K video and other large media files at speeds up to 20Gb per second, four times the performance of the current USB 3.0 HR1 hub.
The Professional Workflow HR2 provides dual Thunderbolt 2 ports for daisy-chaining and one USB 3.0 port, giving users total freedom to choose which interface they want to connect with. The Professional Workflow CR2 can be used in the reader hub alongside other readers or removed and used individually when in the field. Both the reader hub and reader are fully backwards compatible with the first generation of Thunderbolt and USB 2.0.
The Lexar Professional Workflow DD512 and Lexar Professional Workflow DD256 are available now with MSRPs of £99.99 and £144.99, respectively, and each include a two-year limited warranty. The new Lexar Professional Workflow HR2 reader hub has a MSRP of £144.99 and the new Lexar Professional CR2 CFast 2.0 reader has a MSRP of £71.99.
