The Sony MEAD-SD02 SDHC/SDXC Card Adapter enables the use of a Class 10 SDHC/SDXC memory card, including UHS-1, in the ExpressCard slot of xDCAM Ex equipment, such as camcorders and recording decks. It will also work with other ExpressCard compatible hardware, such as Windows and Mac computers and storage drives. Although the SXS PRO and SXS-1 cards intended for the memory slots in XDCAM models offer higher performance, SDHC and SDXC cards are more readily available in a pinch when additional memory is required. This adapter, which is the same size as an SXS memory card, provides a viable solution in this type of situation.
Designed for XDCAM EX: The MEAD-SD02 has been specifically developed by Sony to operate with XDCAM EX hardware and recommended Class 10 SDHC SD Cards like Sony SD cards of the UX series (SF-16UX, SF-32UX), or SDXC Cards of UHS speed class 1
ExpressCard form factor: The MEAD-SD02 adaptor has the shape of ExpressCard/34 so it can be slotted into the ExpressCard slot of XDCAM EX equipment and other ExpressCard compatible hardware, such as a Windows PC or Mac
PC Compatible: SD Card media recorded with MEAD-SD02 by XDCAM EX hardware works on a PC without any need for drivers. Folders and files of XDCAM EX are shown in the NLE operation window or in Clip Browser in the same way as with SxS media
PXU-MS240 Compatible: The PXU-MS240 240GB HDD back up unit for SxS media is fully compatible with the MEAD-SD02 adaptor - simply slot the adaptor with SD Card into the PXU-MS240 unit to record content onto the MS240's hard drive
