To make file based workflows even faster we have purchased the Sony PDW-U2 XDCAM card readers
-The PDW-U2 handles files in all formats: XDCAM HD422, XDCAM HD and XDCAM SD. The unit also allows data file recording using a User Data folder
-The PDW-U2 supports quad-layer write-once (PFD128QLW), dual-layer (PFD50DLA) and single layer (PFD23A) Professional Discs, offering high capacity and new workflow capabilities, with over four hours of recording at HD422 50 Mbps.
-The PDW-U2 offers speeds 2.6 times (read) / 1.5 times (write) faster than the PDW-U1 with the newly developed 2-channel 1-head DCHS drive.
-The PDW-U2 offers the ability to directly access files on Professional Disc from a PC connected via a USB cable. The system supports the Super Speed USB (USB3.0) interface and the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface.
