Akitio, http://www.akitio.com, a storage solutions company dedicated to providing forward-thinking technology to the consumer, has partnered with CalDigit, http://www.caldigit.com, one of the leading storage suppliers to the content creation industry, to bring high speed data and storage solutions to MAC consumers including independent contractors–freelance video editors and digital artists.
As the new economy continues to drive digital innovation and new ways of working, Apple continues to lead the way through the expansion of its user-friendly, content- rich software capabilities for savvy independent content creators who rely on the MAC for their livelihoods.
As a result, there is an increasing demand for additional MAC storage and file transfer systems that are flexible and scalable, allowing users to quickly and efficiently share and store multiple and large files.
Akitio, an affiliate of Inxtron– with headquarters and R&D in Taiwan, has inherited eighteen years of experience in the field of IT innovation. Recognizing the explosive trend to provide high speed MAC file transfer capabilities, Akitio has recently partnered with CalDigit to provide MAC users with USB 3.0 technology that incorporates speeds up to ten times faster than most of today’s popular interfaces.
Ideal for the self-sufficient, quiet working environment of the independent digital artist or consumer, the device is compact and simple to use. The stylish portable aluminum enclosure is designed to enhance and simplify file transfer and storage capabilities. Coupled with the sleek and compact design of CalDigit cards, the package offers awesome performance and is easy to install.
CalDigit is the leader in storage solutions for the content creation industry. With years of experience and proven industry acclaim, CalDigit has paved the way for the future of storage. While windows users have had access to USB 3.0 drivers for some time, there was never a driver for the Mac. CalDigit’s engineers saw this demonstrated need and developed the first USB 3.0 driver for Mac OS X. In addition, CalDigit made sure that the USB 3.0 is also “backwards compatible” with USB 2.0, so users can continue to use it with existing devices.
“We pride ourselves in bringing sophisticated technology to the consumer that was otherwise not available due to the simple fact that it was not cost-effective. Our relationship with CalDigit is significant and timely. They’ve worked with major content creators in the video industry for over ten years. Now we are bringing that same quality and speed to the consumer,” comments Jason Chen, Akitio’s Vice President of Marketing.
