CES 2018: Back Up Like a BOSS with the LaCie DJI Copilot BOSS Hard Drive


Brand-new for CES 2018: photographers, videographers, and drone pilots who often lug around a ton of gear will welcome the arrival of LaCie's 2TB DJI Copilot BOSS USB 3.1 Type-C External Hard Drive. BOSS, which is short for Backup On-Set Solutions, will help those who need an in-field backup solution with direct file ingestion that does not require a computer, while also providing mobile-device charging and mobile file management. Files can be copied directly from drones, memory cards, action cameras, DSLRs, phones, USB hard drives, and USB flash drives to the DJI Copilot's 2TB internal drive. Using the DJI BOSS app and the included USB Type-C, USB Type-C to Type-A, Lightning, and micro-USB cables, as well as the integrated SD card reader and included microSD to SD adapter, files can be downloaded, and the integrated LCD screen also allows for the monitoring of file transfers, storage capacity, and battery power. If you need to review footage that has been transferred to the DJI Copilot, just hook up your device using a compatible cable and review away on your mobile device.

The DJI Copilot is compatible with mobile phones and tablets running iOS 10.3 or Android 4.4 or later, as well as systems running Windows 10 or higher and Mac OS X 10.10 or higher with an available USB 3.1 Type-C, Thunderbolt™ 3, USB 3.0, or USB 2.0 port. To allow users to edit and post content quickly, a 1-month membership to Adobe Creative Cloud is included, and overall protection is provided by a limited 3-year Rescue Data Services Recovery plan.

Do you have a preferred method for performing mobile backups while in the field? Feel free to comment below.
