Western Digital Corporation (NASDAQ: WDC), a global data storage technology and solutions leader, today launched My Cloud™ Home, a new personal cloud storage solution that empowers consumers to take control of their often-scattered digital content. With the My Cloud Home solution, consumers can easily aggregate all of their photos, videos and files from their smart phones, computers, USB storage, cloud and social media accounts in one central placei. Using their smart phone, tablet or computer from anywhere with an internet connection, consumers then are free to experience and share that content with family and friends.
With their data spread across 14 different devices on average1, consumers are faced with growing, disparate collections of data and no way to easily access it all. Those collections are expanding to an approximately 4.5TB of data per U.S. household in 20172and are expected to grow further with increasing popularity of capacity-intensive applications such as virtual reality, 4K, 8K and 360 video.
“Consumers seek a way to effortlessly consoildate their growing mounds of photos, videos and other files with a solution flexible enough to accommodate content from all of today’s devices – from smart phones to computers and from drones to social sites,” said Jim Welsh, senior vice president, Client Solutions, Western Digital. “Enabling consumers and professionals to master their digital lives from anywhere in the world is a priority for Western Digital.”
Centralize and Enjoy Content
Users can set the My Cloud Home solution to be set to automatically and continuously copy all user content from their smart phone and computer devices. Files from USB flash drives, external hard drives and memory cards (via a USB adapter) can be quickly imported via its USB port. Additionally, users can connect to and transfer content from their social media platforms and favorite cloud services such as Dropbox, Box, Google Drive and Facebooki. Television shows, movies, home videos and music saved on the My Cloud Home can be enjoyed on a smart TV or media player using the Plex™ app. This content can also be enjoyed on a smart phone or tablet device using the My Cloud Home app.
All Your Content at Your Fingertips
From set up to everyday usage, the mobile phone is the control center of the My Cloud Home experience. With the My Cloud Home mobile app users are empowered to share, access and enjoy all of their content from anywhere in the world with internet access. The My Cloud Home mobile app is also capable of managing the My Cloud Home solution to add services, users or even make sure the system is updated with the latest software.
Additionally, for creative content warriors who may need more storage to house their digital library, there is a dual-drive personal cloud option. The My Cloud Home Duo solution provides all the functionality of the My Cloud Home solution plus a dual-drive configuration set to Mirror Mode (RAID 1) to automatically duplicate content onto a second drive for extra peace of mind.

WOLFCOM® Introduces VENTURE – The World’s Most Versatile, Wearable and
Clippable 4-in-1 HD Camera
Featuring a Rotatable Camera Head and a Multi-Functional, Clippable Design, VENTURE can be Used as a Body Cam, a Car Cam, a Flashlight Cam and a Livestream Camera; Indiegogo Campaign Launches Today to Fund Product’s Final Development
(Los Angeles, CA) – August 30, 2017 – WOLFCOM, an industry leader in Law Enforcement body cams, today introduced VENTURE, the world’s most versatile, wearable 4-in-1 HD camera. VENTURE features a rotatable camera head and a multi-functional, clippable design so it can be used as a body cam, a mountable car cam, a flashlight cam with four bright LEDs and a livestream camera. With 2.5 hours of battery life (up to 23 hours with optional battery pack), it’s perfect for live streaming to Facebook Live and YouTube Live from anywhere, anytime. An Indiegogo campaign (https://igg.me/at/venturecamera), which has a funding goal of $25,000 USD, features limited Super Early Bird specials of $149 USD (60% off retail) and several other rewards for early backers.
With VENTURE and all of its accessories, the options for photo and video capturing (120-degree Wide Angle lens with no fisheye effect) and sharing are endless. VENTURE, which is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and lightweight at 2.2 ounces, can be combined with additional Point of View (POV) cameras (Eye Vision, Covert Pinhole Button, Night Vision and Headset), allowing the audience to have the same perspective of the user, which is key in recording either sensitive material or exciting “in-the-moment” activities such as motorcycle riding, mountain biking, snowboarding, etc. When one of the secondary POV cameras is connected to the VENTURE, the unit’s proprietary Critical Reconnect Technology™ prevents any missed footage if the 2nd camera’s connection to the VENTURE is lost – recording will continue, never missing a beat.
By using VENTURE’s intuitive mobile app, which also acts as a wireless remote control to record video and take photos, users can record and livestream video directly via a Wi-Fi connection to their smartphone. Live video is then streamed using the phone’s 4G/LTE connection (access to a 4G/LTE connection is necessary for live streaming). They can also grant friends private access to their stream. Additionally, VENTURE users can use the Remote Access feature from the app and program VENTURE as a Wireless Security camera to remotely monitor their home, property, kids or pets.
“With Facebook and YouTube Live becoming very popular across all generations, we designed VENTURE to be the world’s first wearable Live Stream camera designed for everyone,” said Peter Austin Onruang, founder and president, WOLFCOM. “With VENTURE, anyone can be a Star. It’s like having your very own broadcasting studio wherever you go. Just clip the camera where you want, then capture and stream from your point of view – it’s that easy.”
