The AG-MSU10 has a P2 card slot and an interface box for housing a commercially available 2.5-inch solid state drive (SSD)*1. Copying from a P2 card to the SSD can be done. The SSD has a maximum capacity of 2 TB (terabytes). HD files recorded with an AVC-Intra 100 codec (video bit rate: approximately 100 Mbps) can be copied at about four times*2 normal speed, and about eight times*2 normal speed for files recorded with an AVC-Intra 50 (video bit rate: approximately 50 Mbps).
The AG-MSU10 is equipped with eSATA and USB 2.0 interfaces (both Host and Device). In Host mode, files in the internal P2 card can be copied onto an external HDD at high speed without a PC /Mac. In Device mode, the AG-MSU10 can be used as an external drive for reading and writing data between a PC, Mac or nonlinear editing system and a P2 card or SSD.
The removable SSD interface box is equipped with both eSATA and USB 2.0 connectors. It can be removed from the AG-MSU10 and connected directly to a PC, Mac or nonlinear editing system for use in Device mode. This enables flexible operation as a removable media.
Copying from a P2 card to a built-in SSD can be done swiftly with singlebutton operation. A clip thumbnail can also be displayed onto the built-in 3.2-inch LCD panel and images can be copied clip by clip. The condition and status displays enable easy-to-understand operation.
The AG-MSU10, which has superb portability features and a compact, lightweight and robust design, can also be battery driven. The P2 card and SSD ensure reliable use even in extremely harsh shooting conditions.
