Details

The Sony PDW-U2 USB 3.0 XDCAM Disc Drive is an external drive for conveying media to and from all XDCAM Professional Discs, whether SD or HD, single-, dual- or even quad-layer. The drive sits on your desk either horizontally or vertically and connects to your computer via USB 3.0, for extremely high data transfer speeds. (USB 3.0 is also backwards-compatible with USB 2.0, for compatibility with older systems.)

The PDW-U2 features a dual-channel head system that puts two optics on one head to achieve much faster read and write speeds compared to previous-generation technology: reading is 2.6x faster, and write speed is 1.5x higher. For its speed, media compatibility, compact size, and convenient connection interface, the drive is well-suited for any edit suite or logging/transfer station.

Handles files in all formats: XDCAM HD422, XDCAM HD, and XDCAM SD
Direct access to files on Sony XDCAM Professional Disc media from a USB-connected PC

High capacity and a new workflow via quad-layer, write-once media support. The quad-layer disc offers over four hours of recording of HD422 (50 Mb/s) material, which means you can reduce your facility's cost-per-media-capacity and even use memory media material as storage media
