Three-Slot P2 Solid-State Memory Drive with USB 3.0 Interface

With a super-speed USB 3.0 interface; the PCD30 provides the industry's fastest offloads from a P2 card1. For example; when using a Windows PC with a USB 3.0 connection * and simple RAID configuration; you can offload three fully loaded 64GB E-Series P2 Cards in under 15 minutes2. This means you can quickly offload AVC-Intra 100 or DVCPRO-HD content at more than 12X real-time; making the PCD30 especially well-suited for use in Reality TV and long-form video production.

And even P2 offloads to computers without RAID drives can be up to 4X real-time. This allows you to offload a single 64GB E-Series P2 Card in about 14 minutes.

The PCD30 can transfer data from up to three P2 cards simultaneously; making content immediately available to nonlinear editing systems and servers. With three 64GB P2 cards inserted; the device can offer immediate access to more than three hours of AVC-Intra 100 or DVCPRO HD; or more than six hours of AVC-Intra 50 or DVCPRO50 content.

The PCD30 can be used externally; or can be installed in the five-inch bay of a Windows-based desktop for use as a built-in reader. It is compatible with Windows and Macintosh operating systems.
