NEXTO DI NVS1501 overview

  • 1Description

The Nexto DI 500 GB NVS1501 Photo and Video Storage for Pro DSLR / Canon Cinema EOS Camcorders provides your Pro DSLR camera or Canon Cinema EOS camcorder with 500 GB of instant data storage - ideal for on location work. The NVS1501 features SD/SDHC/MMC/SDXC, CF/MD, and Memory Stick/MS Pro-HG/MS Pro MagicGate slots for direct transfer from your card.

In addition to storing important files, which frees up your memory cards for more shooting; the NVS1501 also allows you to copy your files onto other devices, such as USB drives or memory cards, using an external card reader or the optional Ikegami GFPAK. Data can be copied to external hard drives as well using the appropriate connection. Data can additionally be burned to Blu-ray Disc using the NVS1501.

Nexto DI gave this device safety features as well; such as shock protection, in the form of a built-in free-fall sensor and rubber bumpers. Bad sector recovery is another feature that will ensure your peace of mind, by recovering data from bad sectors and moving it to a safe sector. When it comes to powering the NVS1501 various methods can be employed. The internal battery can be recharged via the FireWire 800 cable, USB cable, or AC adapter, or the 'AA' battery holder can provide power, among other options.

Back Up from Various Memory Cards
Offload data from various memory cards (CF, Microdrive, SDHC, SDXC, MS) up to 500 GB
Supports SDXC
The NVS1501 supports the exFAT file system used in SDXC. (Support for file sizes larger than 4GB will be available in the future via a free firmware upgrade)
Copy Mode and Performance
Fast Copy: Make a new folder and copy all the memory card data into the folder
Copy and Verify: Same as Fast Copy, but after copying, the data on the memory card is compared with the copied data on the NVS1501 hard drive. Each bit is verified
Safe Copy: Before copying data, the NVS1501 verifies that its hard drive area is safe. If a bad sector is detected, a new, safe area is found - then copying (Fast Copy) will begin
CF: 80 MB/s - 6 minutes, 40 seconds to transfer 32 GB
SDHC/SDXC: 22 MB/s - 24 minutes, 14 seconds to transfer 32 GB
SDHC/SDXC, UHS-1: 60 MB/s - 8 minutes, 53 seconds to transfer 32 GB
MS: 12 MB/s - 44 minutes, 26 seconds to transfer 32 GB
Preview Video and Photo Clip
User can preview video and photo clips with the built-in color LCD. A preview of both files on internal HDD and external device (CF, SDHC, SDXC, MS, USB external HDD) is supported
Making a Secondary Copy to USB Hard Drive
User can generate (sync) a second copy onto an external USB HDD. Export internal data to an external USB hard drive without needing a laptop. Each time you plug in an external USB hard drive to the NVS1501, any files recorded since the last sync will be transferred. Automatically compare the video folders by file names and sizes

The wall power adapter should be connected to both the NVS1501 and the USB external hard drive. Supports copy from USB card reader or GFPAK using USB host connectivity through eSATA/USB combo port

Multi-Copy Onto Two Separate HDD at the Same Time
MCopy (Multi-Copy) enables mirrored data to be copied onto the NVS1501 and an external USB HDD at the same time, to achieve maximum data safety
Designed for Data Safety Shock Protection
Featuring advanced data management capabilities including Recover folder from bad sector, shock protection and success (or failure) feedback of previous backup operation

Shock protection:
1. Built-in free-fall sensor
The NVS1501 senses when it's being dropped - it will be triggered to move the read/write head of the HDD away from platter, parking at its original position. The main power will be automatically switched-off
2. Supplied with Rubber Bumpers
A pair of rubber bumper supplied for an additional protection

Bad Sector Recovery
If a video folder contains a bad sector the NVS1501 recovers the video folder. It copies data onto good sectors and replaces unusable sectors with a format dependent on dummy sectors. The frames that contain dummy sectors block noises but the rest of frames become usable

Success (or Failure) Feedback
Next time you switch on the NVS1501, it will display the previous backup result, in order to help the user to determine the deletion of data stored on the memory card
