The PDW-U1 is a compact, mobile and highly cost-effective drive, usable in the field or at the desktop.
It can handle professional disc media (PFD23/PFD23A) recorded in SD or HD formats, as well as the new “dual-layer” discs (PFD50DLA). The PDW-U1 serves as an external drive via a standard USB connection.
The drive allows direct access to recorded material from either a PC or Mac based platform – and provides all the necessary drivers/utilities to enable this. XDCAM is already widely supported by many industry leading vendors and the PDW-U1 will be no exception. For example - it will be an ideal and affordable system for fast transfer of material into non-linear editors.
