August 16, 2007 LaCie has boosted the capacity of its Ethernet Big Disk to a massive 2TB in a compact 2x7x11” solution. When connected to a home network, the LaCie Ethernet Big Disk can stream multimedia content to UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) compatible AV adapters. The new LaCie comes with a MediaServer option which you can turn on during installation to automatically organize music, photos and video files for use with Apple iTunes or other media players. This enables families to simultaneously listen to stored music and play movies on a networked theater system in the living room.
A second USB port can be used to expand capacity over the network by connecting an additional hard drive. The LaCie’s Ethernet Big Disk high-speed processor and optional jumbo frame support, offers fast data transfer rates on the network.
The Big Disks ship with LaCie’s IP Configurator and 1-Click Backup Software for Mac/Windows, as well as all cables needed for immediate use.
