The Panasonic AG-MSU10 Mobile Storage Unit has a P2 card slot and an interface box (AG-MBX10) with a 512 GB SSD (Solid State Drive). In addition, this interface box supports SSDs to up to 2 TB.
In addition to its compact, lightweight, rugged design, the storage box features battery-powered operation for versatile field use. Files recorded onto a P2 card can be copied onto an SSD at about 4x the normal speed for AVC-Intra 100 codecs. It has both eSATA and USB 2.0 connectors, so files can be easily transferred by connecting the AG-MSU10 unit to an external HDD or PC / Mac. Uploading to a backup or nonlinear editing system is fast and easy as well. The removable SSD interface box is also equipped with eSATA and USB 2.0 connectors, so it can be removed from the AG-MSU10 unit and connected directly to a PC / Mac. Special attention to field-based operation is further seen in features like one-button copying, a clip thumbnail display on the built-in LCD, and clip-by-clip copying. The AG-MSU10 storage unit contributes to comfortable file-based P2HD production by increasing speed, efficiency, and reliability.
Note: File transfer speed varies depending on the SSD and external HDD writing speed, transferred files, P2 card version, and other conditions. Without verification.
