Capturing the images: LaCie rugged external hard drive

Posted by Suzanne on 22 September 2009

Our cyclers don’t just cycle half the globe, they also film it. When we sent our four adventurers into the unknown, we made sure they went on their way well packed. With camping equipment, cameras, laptops and the all important external hard drives to keep their stories safe and sound.

These external hard drives provided by LaCie form an essential part of Going South. Almost every day, despite of torrential rains and rocky mountain paths, the two teams keep video diaries and film their experiences. All this footage needs to be stored somewhere, even when they are in the middle of nowhere with no electricity in sight.

The LaCie rugged external hard drive is made to work and survive in these harsh conditions and surroundings. It has a scratch-protected aluminum shell and shock-resistant rubber bumper. On top of that, it’s rated shock-proof up to 2.2 meters. The LaCie drive plugs into almost any computer anywhere for instant storage and backup and offers high speed of up to 800 Mbits/s.

Each time our film crew goes out to meet the cyclers, we transfer the footage and empty the drives. This continuous cycle will eventually provide us with all the beautiful images, which will make up an essential part of this 13 episode documentary.
