The new Storage Bridge NSB-25 from Nexto DI allows users to backup HD or UHD memory cards on location, without a laptop. It takes interchangeable memory card modules and, with one touch, can generate up to three true back-up copies simultaneously on two removable drives and an external USB 3.0 drive.
It has bays for two USB 3.0 hard drives, plus CF/SD (SDHC/SDXC) memory card slots and a further slot for an interchangeable memory card module, which can be: SxS, XQD, P2 & ExpressP2, Red, Pak Media, AXSM, 2.5-inch SSD (or HDD), or CFast cards. It ships with a user’s choice of two memory modules.
For reviewing footage as thumbnails, or to playback 2K and preview 4K video, the NSB-25 has a 5-inch 800×400 touchscreen, where it can show XAVC 2K/4K or other formats, such as MPEG2, AVC-intra, AVCHD, H.264, ProRes, DNxHD and DVCPRO HD. The NSB-25 will also transcode 4K files to H.264 or playback Raw 4K via an upgrade pack available soon. It has an internal speaker and headphone jack, and can connect to a larger monitor via HDMI.
It can also generate a CRC-protected Log file to keep track of usage, and when copying a 4GB or larger file it supports exFAT/FAT/UDF and HFS+ file formats.
A Sync function allows users to quickly offload all backed up files to another drive by touching the screen, and only those files that have changed since the last sync will be copied.
