Description Technical Specs

Sony PDW-U2 - USB 3.0 XDCAM Professional Disc Drive Unit

The Sony PDW-U2 USB 3.0 XDCAM Disc Drive is an external drive for conveying media to and from all XDCAM Professional Discs, whether SD or HD, single-, dual- or even quad-layer. The drive sits on your desk either horizontally or vertically and connects to your computer via USB 3.0, for extremely high data transfer speeds. (USB 3.0 is also backwards-compatible with USB 2.0, for compatibility with older systems.)

The PDW-U2 features a dual-channel head system that puts two optics on one head to achieve much faster read and write speeds compared to previous-generation technology: reading is 2.6x faster, and write speed is 1.5x higher. For its speed, media compatibility, compact size, and convenient connection interface, the drive is well-suited for any edit suite or logging/transfer station.
