FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sling Media today announced the availability of its SlingStudio™ multi-camera production and live video broadcasting system in-store and online at B&H Photo Video, as well as MySlingStudio.com. Sling Media L.L.C. is a subsidiary of DISH Network Corp. Starting at $999, SlingStudio is the industry’s first affordable, wireless, portable multi-camera production solution that lets users of all skill levels record, monitor and edit four HD video inputs from up to 10 connected cameras and smartphones. SlingStudio can output live video to streaming services like Facebook Live and YouTube, and simultaneously record to a USB hard drive, USB SSD or SD card for post-production. “SlingStudio makes professional-quality multi-camera production and livestreaming a reality for anyone – it’s easier to use and costs thousands of dollars less than existing solutions,” said Vivek Khemka, DISH chief technology officer. The SlingStudio system requires the $999 SlingStudio hub and free Console app for iPad. Optional accessories are listed below. CameraLink for $349: CameraLink wireless adapter plugs into the HDMI port available on most DSLR and video cameras. It wirelessly transmits up to 1080p60 video to the SlingStudio hub from up to 300 feet away. Its internal battery provides up to two hours of power. Battery for $149: The SlingStudio Battery provides up to three hours of power for portability. USB-C Expander for $49: The USB-C Expander supports wired Gigabit Ethernet connectivity for live broadcasting, and connects to USB 3.0 hard drives or SSDs for recording content. Seagate is SlingStudio’s preferred storage supplier. From setup to the shoot to post-production, SlingStudio simplifies all aspects of multi-camera video. Learn more about how SlingStudio works: Setup: Capture video from different angles by wirelessly connecting up to 10 video sources (DSLR cameras, video cameras, smartphones, personal computers, etc.) to a single SlingStudio using its private, video-grade Wi-Fi network; Internet connectivity is not required. Elimination of cables dramatically reduces setup time, and allows for cameras to be placed anywhere (within 300 feet of the SlingStudio hub) and easily moved. HDMI-enabled DSLR and video cameras connect via SlingStudio’s CameraLink wireless adapter (sold separately) or to SlingStudio’s HDMI input port. Smartphones using iOS and Android operating systems directly connect to SlingStudio wirelessly using the Capture app available for free download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store; no CameraLink needed. Production: The iPad Console app (available for free download in the Apple App Store) is required to manage video production with SlingStudio. It allows directors to monitor and create live-to-tape video from up to four (out of a maximum of 10 connected) input sources simultaneously, and drag and drop video into a composition window. Here directors can create dynamic video compositions like picture-in-picture, split and quad views; edit in popular transitions like cut, dissolve and wipe; add text overlays and lower thirds; and mix audio. All of this can be done in real time as live video is streamed to platforms like Facebook Live or YouTube, and simultaneously recorded to a USB hard drive, USB SSD or SD card for post-production. External audio sources, audio mixers and output monitors can also connect to SlingStudio for advanced production needs. Post-production: Individual recordings from each camera feed, plus the live-switched video and audio line-in, are saved in a single storage location, eliminating the need to wrangle and import multiple storage drives from each camera. With just a couple clicks of the mouse, the entire project file can then be easily imported into editing applications like Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC and Apple Final Cut Pro® X. The SlingStudio integration for Adobe Premiere Pro further simplifies and speeds up post-production. Adobe Premiere Pro users who download the SlingStudio extension can import all recordings into a project timeline with all clips and editing decisions preserved and aligned. This includes the video and audio from each source camera, as well as the live-switched program and quad-view feeds. For more information, or to sign up for news alerts, visit www.MySlingStudio.com.

Looking for high-quality portable SSDs is quite a challenge, especially with differing prices on the market. Luckily, lauded brand Western Digital has run up to the SSD trend. Western Digital just announced its first portable SSD storage called "My Passport SSD," available in three storage configurations, complete with a USB-C port which replaces the USB 3.0 Micro B port of yesteryear. The My Passport SSD is tiny, almost palm-sized. It's also currently the fastest My Passport drive from Western Digital's lineup of storage devices, offering users the ability to move files at 515 MB/s. This is the first time for Western Digital to actually release a portable SSD drive, since the company is mostly recognized for its inexpensive solutions for HDD backups. As you can see, the My Passport SSD borrows the look of the recently redesigned My Passport drives, obviously shrunken down because of the absence of a magnetic drive. The move to finally release its own portable SSD is wise — and also unsurprising. The company acquired SanDisk last year to make inroads in the SSD department, which is something it's already doing with its internal SSDs. Its new My Passport SSD also signals its willingness to compete with Seagate and LaCie in the increasingly emerging market of SSDs, especially with the latter two companies already offering their own SSDs. But instead of just releasing a run-of-the-mill portable SSD, Western Digital was meticulous enough to also jump into the USB Type-C trend, which is slowly replacing previous-gen ports. But the company isn't leaving out those who don't have USB Type-C laptops: it's throwing in a USB Type-A adaptor in the box for anyone who might need it. "My Passport SSD is the perfect storage solution to rapidly manage large photo and video libraries, quickly back up files and important documents, run virtual machines from, or expand your SSD-laptop storage anywhere you take your computer," said Western Digital in an announcement. Western Digital's My Passport SSD, as previously mentioned, will come in three storage configurations: 256 GB, 512 GB, and 1 TB. Like all SSDs, however, don't expect these to come cheap. The lowest storage size will cost $99.99; 512 GB will cost $199.99; and 1 TB will cost $399.99. These are pretty fair prices considering other, more steep offers out there, but they're still pretty high, although this is mostly because SSDs are far more expensive the HDDs at present. By contrast, a My Passport 2 TB hard drive is just $79.99, much lower than the lowest My Passport SSD storage option. The drives are protected by 256-bit AES hardware encryption and password protection, and users will get a three-year warranty period for every purchase. The drives are shock resistant up to 1500 G of force and can withstand a 6.5 foot drop. They will be available "this quarter," according to the company.

Abod, Carahsoft president. “With Seagate in our portfolio, we are now able to offer our government customers and reseller partners the widest selection of FIPS 140-2 certified SEDs to prevent the loss and theft of sensitive data and achieve regulatory compliance.” Seagate is the pioneer and leader in Data at Rest (DAR) protection and strong media disposal with SEDs. Secure and compliant SEDs offer significant performance and TCO advantages over CPU and full disk encryption methods while being streamlined enough for a one-person IT department to manage and maintain. “We are excited to work with Carahsoft to bring these new, certified drives to the government market, as we know they can solve the critical challenges around data security that concern IT teams and government employees alike,” said Deb Oliver, president, Seagate Government Solutions.
