LV, Nevada – April 10, 2015 – Other World Computing (OWC), a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced today that it will feature its award-winning OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G Solid State Drives at its NAB 2015 Booth #SL13905 in LV, Nevada April 13-16.  Officially certified by Blackmagic Design, one of the world’s leading innovators of creative video capture and post production editing products, Mercury EXTREME Pro drives are certified for use with Blackmagic’s HyperDeck Studio, HyperDeck Shuttle, and MultiDock, as well as its Production Camera 4K and Cinema Cameras.
