Panasonic delivers AJ-PCD20
Panasonic has announced the availability of its new five-slot P2 solid-state memory drive — the AJ-PCD20.
The AJ-PCD20 is a flexible internal/external drive that eliminates the digitizing process and offers a faster, more convenient file transfer workflow. This enhanced five-slot P2 memory drive gives users the flexibility of using either the USB 2.0 or the IEEE 1394b (S800) interface for high-speed file transfer of 25Mb/s DVCPRO, 50Mb/s DVCPRO50 or 100Mb/s DVCPRO HD into nonlinear editing systems and servers.
The AJ-PCD20 can mount five 8GB P2 cards simultaneously (containing up to 160 minutes of recordings in DVCPRO, 80 minutes in DVCPRO50 and 40 minutes in DVCPRO HD), giving users instant access to all recorded content on each card. A user can view all cards’ content in sequence for continuous editing and a smoother workflow.
