Nexto DI: Faster backups with wireless editing13 September 2014
The new Nexto Video Storage Air NVS2825 SSD now backs up video faster, more securely and from a wider variety of camera card formats than its previous hard drive model and can also be accessed via Wi-Fi for remote editing.
The solid-state drive offers users speeds of up to 170MBps from an SxS Pro+ card and has been designed for location backup from a wide variety of cameras, such as Sony’s PMW-F5/55 or PXW-Z100, Canon’s C300/500 and Blackmagic Design’s new cameras, or external recorders, such as AJA Video System’s Ki Pro.
It can copy from Sony’s SxS Pro+, SxS Pro and SxS-1 cards, Panasonic’s P2 and P2E cards, external 2.5-inch SSD, and CF or SD/SDHC/SDXC UHS-I memory cards. It also accepts XQD cards (via a Sony QDA-EX1 adapter) and CFast for the Amira (via a new upgrade pack).
It backs up a 64GB SxS Pro+ card in under seven minutes, then performs verification, comparing the file on the card to the file on the SSD to make
sure the data is copied accurately, which takes a further six minutes.
Users can plug in a second USB3.0 hard drive to simultaneously write onto both internal and external drives at the same speed, to generate two identical true copies without needing a laptop.
