Panasonic Unveils Portable P2 Media Storage Unit

Panasonic Solutions Company announced its new AG-MSU10 P2 Media Storage Unit, a portable workflow tool that simplifies the process of backing-up or aggregating P2 content to a larger removable solid-state drive.

According to the statement, delivering fast, stable transfer of data, the compact P2 Media Storage Unit removes the need for computers or larger, more expensive appliances in the field and can quickly free up P2 cards for additional shooting.

The MSU10 boasts a small form factor with two slots: one for a P2 card, and the second for the AG-MBX10 removable housing that encloses a standard 2.5” SATA solid-state drive (SSD). Equipped with USB 2.0 and eSATA connectors, the drive can be connected to PCs and Macs, including laptops.

“A highly portable device like the P2 Media Storage Unit becomes even more convenient with the inclusion of the removable MBX10,” said Steve Cooperman, Product Line Business Manager, Media & Production Services, Panasonic Solutions Company. “The operator can quickly download P2 content, and then walk away with a featherweight SSD unit that can be powered by virtually any computer.”

The P2 Media Storage Unit features a 3.2” LCD screen and simple one-touch operation. It provides P2 thumbnail display and supports master-quality 10-bit AVC-Intra (100/50) and DVCPRO HD, DVCPRO50, DVCPRO and DV recording formats. Content is transferred from a P2 card to the solid-state drive at four times real-time when recording in AVC-Intra 100 or DVCPRO HD. The MSU10 is battery-operated.

The AG-MSU10 will be available in October for $2,500.
