This B&H Kit includes the NEXTO DI Storage Bridge NSB-25 Modular Memory Card Backup System, the NEXTO DI Bridge Pellet Module for Storage Bridge NSB-25, the NEXTO DI SxS Bridge Memory Module for Storage Bridge NSB-25, and the NEXTO DI REDMAG Bridge Memory Module for Storage Bridge NSB-25. The Modular Memory Card Backup System found in this kit is a mobile expandable data backup device featuring USB 3.0 connectivity designed for videographers, photographers, and those working in the field with large amounts of imaging data. The storage bridge comes equipped with a 5" TFT-LCD 800 x 400 touchscreen display allowing you to manage files along with the ability to playback 2K content and preview 4K content. Additionally, you can backup your valuable imaging data to up to three different drives simultaneously.

Included with this kit you will find the Bridge Pallet Module. This component is an empty 2.5" HDD or SSD bay that connects to the NSB-25 using the SATA II 3 Gb/s interface. This module makes it easy to expand the unit's storage capabilities and swap out one module for another. Also included in this kit are the SxS and REDMAG Memory Bridge Modules. These modules are designed to accept SxS and REDMAG media for use with the Storage Bridge NSB-25. Once the designated media is inserted into the memory module, the memory module may be inserted into the Storage Bridge NSB-25 where data may be reviewed, downloaded, or backed up.

NEXTO DI NESV-NSB25REDK reviews

NEXTO DI Storage Bridge NSB-25 Modular Memory Card Backup Kit with SxS & REDMAG Media is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Device I've Been Waiting For For years I've been wishing someone would make this device. Operation is incredibly simple. I insert a REDMAG, click Copy and Verify and about 100MB/s later (40 minutes for a 128GB magazine) it both copies it to 2 internal backups and one external client drive and verifies at a bit level that all 4 are identical. I dare say it's so simple that even a PA could do it. This certainly doesn't replace a Digital Loader or DIT for jobs since you still want someone to open the footage, look at it and visually ensure that the camera is running smoothly nor does it replace a DIT's job of helping the camera department with camera specific expertise like onscreen guide configuration and LUTs it does replace the DIT who simply runs a magazine to their laptop and hits Copy/Paste. And it's a dream sent for projects out in the field where there isn't time or space for a laptop and a hydra of attached readers and RAIDs. I am terribly disappointed this wasn't released before my project in Costa Rica where I had no DIT and no room for a laptop setup in a 4x4 bouncing through the jungle. The good: It's very easy to use and so far has been 100% reliable. Great for quickly offloading cards to multiple copies and even having a backup that you can split off and keep separate in case of a car crash or fire. The Bad: Unfortunately this is very much a version 1.0 product. The processor is presumably an ARM processor so there is no RED SDK to preview clips. If you are recording pro-res or DNxHD you can review clips on the 5 display but for RED shooters you have to take it on faith that the clips look good. Another problem is its power situation. The 3hr battery is good enough for comfortably about 384GB - 500GB of REDMags both copied and bit checked. With Dragon 6k that means you can run out of power after only shooting about 75 minutes of footage. With a multi-cam shoot you can easily run out of battery before the end of the day. Unfortunately the battery cannot be charged and run off of AC power at the same time. Thankfully there is a P-Tap power solution supposedly coming next month which will mean that you could run theoretically indefinitely off of bricks while away from civilization and in a car or other situation where a highly portable backup solution is most useful. The charge times are also pretty extreme at 6 hours to charge a 3 hour battery. This is somewhat inverted from what people have come to expect out of laptops which run for 8 hours and often will charge in 2-3. A higher energy density lithium ion battery that doubled its battery life would do wonders for my opinion of this device. Another couple quibbles I would have are relegated to the REDMag reader and storage pellets. Neither of them are particularly impressive in their build quality. It feels like corners were cut particularly on the REDMAG reader which does not very tightly guide the REDMags and can result in you stubbing the card into the reader slot instead of consistently mating smoothly.
