Sonnet to feature Qio universal media reader/writer
At IBC2009, Sonnet will showcase its Qio universal media reader/writer designed for in-studio or on-location applications.
The Qio offers an alternative to stand-alone card readers, controllers and adapters. It features dual P2, SxS and CompactFlash slots and the ability to transfer data from two cards concurrently, which lets users offload files more quickly and efficiently.
For almost any other memory card type, including Memory Stick, MMC, SD and xD-Picture, the Sonnet 21-in-1 multimedia memory card reader and writer is included. For quick migration of data, the Qio integrates a complete SATA controller based on Sonnet's Tempo SATA E4P SATA card, which through four eSATA ports enables users to connect two Sonnet Fusion F2 portable storage systems or four drive enclosures with port multipliers for access to up to 20 SATA drives.
