NEXTO DI NVS2801 overview

  • 1Description

The NEXTO NVS2801 VIDEO STORAGE Doc from NEXTO DI is a mobile and expandable data backup device that features USB 3.0 connectivity and is designed for videographers, photographers, and those who are working in the field with large amounts of imaging data. Using this device, users will be able to natively create a backup of SxS Pro/Pro+/-1, CFast 1.1 & 2.0, and SD/SDHC/SDXC cards. Using separately sold adapters, P2/P2E, XQD, and CF cards can be backed up using the SxS slot. There is also a built-in USB card reader port that enables compatibility with other types of memory cards. Supported memory card file systems include FAT16, FAT32, exFAT, UDF, and HFS+. So that data may be easily copied on-the-fly, an internal 1TB 2.5" SATA SSD is included. This storage may also be upgraded by the user, so long as 2.5" SATA drives are used that are 9.5mm or less in height.

Using its MCopy function, the VIDEO STORAGE Doc supports the creation of two simultaneous backups—one to its internal drive, and a second to an external USB drive that is formatted as exFAT. Using its 2.4" color LCD display and an audio jack, it is also possible to preview backed up content on-the-fly. While the fps support for 2K and 4K video is limited, you will be able to check and make sure that your content backup was successful. Also supported is Sync, meaning that when copying files to an external USB drive, only files that have changed since the last backup will be copied. This will help backups to be completed quicker and consume a minimum amount of storage space.

The NEXTO NVS2801 VIDEO STORAGE Doc is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux, operates using an included AC adapter, and also contains a built-in lithium-ion polymer battery that lasts for up to two hours. Once depleted, the battery can be recharged in five hours using the power adapter, or twelve hours using the included USB 3.0 cable. Also included is a shock protective rubber jacket.

General Features

Light, Compact, Fast
Weighing 0.95 lb and compact in size, the NVS2801 is well-suited as a portable memory card backup storage device. It can use HDDs and SSDs, the latter of which enables transfer speeds of up to 300 MB/s. Maximum data transfer rates per minute are as follows:
  • CFast: 15.8GB SSD, 6.4GB HDD
  • SxS: 10.5GB SSD, 6.4GB HDD
  • SDXC: 3.5GB SSD & HDD
  • USB Reader: 9.4GB SSD, 6.4GB HDD
  • Support
    The NVS 2801 natively supports SxS, XQD, CFast, and files 4GB and larger. Supported memory card file systems include FAT16/32, exFAT, UDF, and HFS+
    Internal Storage
    While the NVS2801 has 1TB of internal SSD storage, this can be switched out for a larger capacity drive, so long as it is a 2.5" SATA drive that is 9.5mm or less in height. It is also important to note that even if this device is mounted to a camera or tripod, there is nothing interfering with the removal of the backplate so the hard drive may be swapped out mid-shoot. This means that you can leave your camera setup as-is, swap out the hard drive, and get right back to shooting
    Preview 2K/4K
    The NVS2801 has a 2.4" color LCD display and an audio jack which allows Full HD and 4K video backups to be monitored on the fly. In other words, you can immediately check that your content was successfully backed up. The frames per second that may be previewed for selected codecs are as follows:
  • AVC Intro 100: 0.4 fps
  • AVC Intra 50: 0.6 fps
  • AVCHD: 0.3 fps
  • H.264 2K: 0.4 fps
  • H.264 4K: 0.1 fps
  • XAVC 2K: 0.4 fps
  • XAVC 4K: 0.3 fps
  • DNxHD: 3.96 fps
  • DV: 30 fps
  • MPEG-2 4:2:0 2K: 2 fps
  • MPEG-2 4:2:2 2K: 2 fps
  • ProRes 2K: 10 fps
  • ProRes 4K: 6 fps
  • ARRI RAW & RED RAW: Thumbnail only
  • No External Power Required for Memory Card Readers
    As the internal battery in NVS2801 supplies power to the card reader port, you can connect memory card readers without needing an external power source
    Simultaneous Backup Feature (MCopy)
    The NVS2801 can back up to two drives at once, allowing you to deliver one copy to the cutting room and store the other copy as a backup. This helps guarantee safety by minimizing any mistakes/discrepancies that may occur between the editor and the cameraman
    Detect Corrupted Source Video Files
    Source video may become corrupted from a slow memory card or drained battery. In such cases, the computer will not be able to recognize the corrupted file on the memory card. The NVS2801 can help detect these corrupted files on the memory card before copying so that you can be aware of possible problems and react on location
    Minimize Data Loss from Carelessness
    In cases where power is automatically turned off after backup/verification, or the power has turned off due to an error while backing up, users can often not tell whether the backup was successful. The NVS2801 has a built-in feature that shows the success/failure of the previous backup on the next power up
    Edit Immediately by Connecting to the Computer
    Backed up folders are organized by date in the NVS2801. The NVS2801 can be connected as an external drive to the computer, allowing the editor to edit immediately or Drag and Drop multiple backup folders at once
    Free Fall & Motion Detection
    If you have installed a hard drive in the NVS2801, failure can occur from external shock or shaking. The NVS2801 will show a warning message should shaking occur during usage. In addition, a built-in sensor can help detect freefall and shut the power down to protect the internal system before impact
    Simple Button Controls
    All features can be accessed using the power and control buttons. You can see the memory card copying progress and backup information via the 2.4" color LCD
    Copy All Files to Another Drive (Sync)
    You can sync all data stored in the NVS2801's internal drive at once to an external USB drive. It analyzes the data on both drives and copies only new data to the USB drive
    Checking Usage History (Log File)
    Usage records such as XCopy, MCopy, Sync, computer connection, and more is stored under the "NVSLog" folder of the drive (internal drive or external USB drive) as a LOG file. You can resolve problems that may occur between cameraman and the editor using this log file
