Other World Computing (OWC), a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced today that it will debut a range of new cutting-edge products at its NAB booth, #SL13905 in Las Vegas, NV, April 13-16.

Continuing a long-standing commitment to innovation, OWC is unveiling these new products:

  • OWC Drive Dock
  • Mercury Accelsior Pro Q high performance PCIe SSD
  • Mercury Accelsior S PCIe SSD.

These new products deliver higher speeds and increased storage capacity to meet the high performance requirements for professionals in content creation.

OWC Drive Dock
The OWC Drive Dock combines the convenience of immediate plug and play access to 1x3.5" or 2x2.5" bare SATA drives with the amazing speed of Thunderbolt 2 connectivity in a sleek, rugged aluminum enclosure. The dock comes with a USB 3.0 port and two Thunderbolt 2 ports for daisy-chain support. It is perfect for professionals who need to frequently swap drives between projects.

The OWC Drive Dock will be available in the summer of 2015. Pricing will be released at that time.

Accelsior Pro Q High Performance PCIe SSD
At up to 4TB capacity and capable of speeds up to 1345MB/s, Accelsior Pro Q is the next generation of high-performance PCIe SSD technology — more than double the speed of SATA 6Gb/s. Content creation professionals can now enjoy the speed and capacity they need for demanding production workflows.

The Mercury Accelsior Pro Q high performance SSD will be available in May 2015. Pricing will be released at that time.

Accelsior S PCIe SSD
With up to 500 MB/s of throughput, the Accelsior S dual-lane PCIe 2.0 card delivers flexible storage expansion — with a speed boost — to Mac and PC towers, and Thunderbolt expansion chassis. Accelsior S is the perfect complement to OWC's Mercury family of high-performance SSDs, delivering up to 1TB of fast storage expansion, and bringing SATA 6Gb/s speed, via PCIe, to machines previously limited by SATA 3Gb/s architecture.

The Mercury Accelsior S PCIe SSD will be available in late April 2015. Pricing will be released at that time.

"We're committed to constant innovation, to find new ways to meet the ever changing needs of professionals in content creation," said Larry O'Connor, OWC Founder and CEO. "With a focus on speed and connectivity, we're excited to showcase some fantastic new products this year at NAB. OWC workflow solutions help professionals focus on their masterpiece, rather than their production tools."
