Tired of having to use a computer or larger, more expensive appliance in the field for backup? The new, handheld AG-MSU10 P2 Media Storage Unit simplifies backing-up P2 content, and eliminates the need for a PC or larger device. The MSU10 will quickly free up P2 cards so users can continue shooting.

The easily-transportable MSU10 boasts a small form factor with two slots: one for a P2 card, and the second for the AG-MBX10 tray, which supports a 2.5″ solid-state or hard drive (see pre-configured packages ) for back-up. To work in multiple workflows, the MSU10 includes USB 2.0 and eSATA interfaces for easy connection to NLEs, including PCs and Macs, to expedite editing.

It provides P2 thumbnail display and supports master-quality 10-bit AVC-Intra (100/50) and DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV recording formats. Content is transferred from a P2 card to the solid-state drive at four times real-time when recording in AVC-Intra 100 or DVCPRO HD.
