Faster transfer aboard the AU-XPD3 expressP2
Panasonic’s new expressP2 card reader, AU-XPD3, has been designed to cater for applications in which superfast workflow is necessary. As such, it can support high-definition data transfer and editing including 4K. Making use of Thunderbolt 3 technology, the AU-XPD3 can reportedly achieve data transfer speeds of up to 10Gbps.
Deemed a ‘significant upgrade to meet the demands of super-high definition recording’, the device is designed for the recording of high-quality and high-frame-rate content including 4K/120fps and HD/240fps. The manufacturer states that its new card drive offers a solution to those who wish to transition towards a 4K workflow, but have hesitated due to slow down caused previously by data sizes.
‘The Panasonic AU-XPD3 for expressP2 highlights how Thunderbolt 3 delivers the bandwidth and speed needs of the broadcast industry,’ explained Jason Ziller, director of Thunderbolt marketing at Intel.
