Nexto DI NVS2525 at Interbee.. Dual Drive Backups
Larry (hello Larry) from Nexto gave me a quick demo of the Nexto DI NVS2525 at Interbee in Tokyo.

The main external change compared to the NVS2500 is the removal of the CF and SD cards slots from the top. These have been replaced with a dedicated slot for P2 cards. As before SxS cards slot in to an express card slot in the side of the unit. For SD, CF, MS and all those other sticks that you might one day use, an adapter is supplied that slides in to the express card slot. This has improved the speed of offload for these cards and now CF cards can be backed up almost as fast as SxS cards. Once again the backup speed is impressive, 80MB/s, yes Mega Bytes! In Larry's demo he offloaded 2Gb of SxS data in 27 seconds, very impressive. But it doesn't end there. The Nexto uses a hard drive internally for storage. I've had my 2500 for about a year now and I have dropped it, banged it around, taken it to the arctic and storm chasing. Despite this it has been 100% reliable. However despite the built in crash protection, gravity sensor, sector checking and all the other safety features, it is at the end of the day a single hard drive. So what Nexto have added is the ability to write to an external drive. The NVS2500 can also write to an external drive, but the difference is that the NVS2525 can write to it's internal drive as well as an external drive...... in parallel. So backing up your valuable data takes exactly the same amount of time as before.. 27 seconds for 2Gb, but now you have two copies on two drives.

While I was talking to Larry I also spotted a Nexto DI box with red rubber buffers. This one it turns out has been developed specifically for backing up SxS cards from the Arri Alexa.

This looks fantastic.

I shoot with the PMW-500 in .mxf and the EX1 will it take both formats on the same drive?

Can't seem to find where they have it in stock in the US. I sent an email and will see if they respond.
