The AU-XPD3 Memory Card Drive "expressP2 drive" uses the Thunderbolt™ 3 interface to achieve high speed data transfer. The expressP2 card B series are developed as recording media for the Panasonic VariCam series camera, due to record 4K/highframe-rate video. The AU-XPD3 takes full advantage of the high data transfer performance (maximum 10 Gbps*1) of this media, thus achieving about four times*1 faster transfer speed than its predecessor, the AU-XPD1/USB 3.0. When two AU-XPD3 units are daisy-chained, data can be transferred at an increased speed of 17.6 Gbps.*1
The card slot accommodates an expressP2 card, P2 card or microP2 card (adaptor required). The AU-XPD3 contributes to speedier 4K/high-frame-rate video production workflows using VariCam.
