COMPUTEX 2014 - TAIPEI, Taiwan - June 2, 2014 - Corsair®, a worldwide leader in high-performance components to the PC hardware market, today announced the Voyager Air 2, a palm-sized, wireless hard drive that adds 1TB of storage to your iPad, iPhone, Android device, PC, or Mac®. The rechargeable battery-powered storage drive serves up your entire movie and music library at home or on the go, all without need for wires or internet access.

The latest second-gen drive uses new Voyager Air 2.0 software, which adds new features to the Voyager Air product family, including: simplified media browsing, cloud synchronization with Dropbox and Google Drive, and Airplay streaming to Apple TV.

Wirelessly add 1TB of storage to iOS, Android, Windows, and Mac OS X devices

The Voyager Air 2 adds 1TB of storage to Apple and Android tablets and phones without a tangle of wires. The spacious drive can store up to 800 full-length HD movies or 380,000 MP3s with extra room for photos and office documents. This frees users from obsessing over managing precious space on their mobile devices, and leaves plenty of space for future needs.

Wireless mobile storage for media streaming on the go

With Voyager Air 2, multiple people can enjoy their stored movies, TV shows, music and photos at the office, on a road trip, or while on vacation. The drive is a self-contained streaming media server with a wireless hub built-in, so it can wirelessly stream digital content to other playback devices directly with no Internet connection required. Media can be played with the free Voyager Air app for Android, Apple iOS, and Amazon Kindle Fire devices, or through a web browser. Voyager Air 2 provides solid, fast, and secure 802.11n/b/g Wi-Fi connections for multiple users at ranges up to 90 feet, and can stream 720p high-definition video to up to five devices at once. For ultimate mobility, the high-capacity rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides up to seven hours of video streaming between recharges.

New version 2.0 software adds simplified media browsing, Airplay, DLNA, and cloud syncing

Voyager Air 2's onboard media server automatically organizes media files, making it easy to browse your whole media library. Browse TV shows by name, season, and episode or music by song title, artist, album, and genre. The drive can also be connected wirelessly to a home network for easy access to media from DLNA-compatible smart TVs, Blu-ray players, game consoles, DVRs, and streaming media boxes. Plus full Airplay compatibility allows convenient streaming to big screen TVs via an Apple TV.

Voyager Air 2 is also cloud friendly. The drive synchronizes with your Dropbox or Google Drive folders, making the content available offline anywhere you go. Once reconnected to the internet, Voyager Air 2 will automatically re-sync to ensure all changes are saved in both the cloud and the drive.

Portable USB 3.0 drive, up to 2x faster

Voyager Air 2 also functions as a super-fast USB 3.0 drive. Copy a two-hour HD movie in under 30 seconds or 1000 iPhone photos in under 45 seconds. It's compatible with USB 2.0 connections as well.

Voyager Air 2 comes ready to use in Windows format (NTFS), but Mac users can easily reformat to HFS+ for Time Machine® compatibility. The Voyager Air 2 drive may be partitioned for easier organization of media and user files.

Mobile wireless hub for sharing Internet access

Everyone gets online at the same time. Use the Voyager Air 2 as a wireless hub to share Internet access by connecting Voyager Air 2 to a Wi-Fi hotspot and enabling wireless passthrough.
