Sony has announced the launch of the SR-D1, a compact, affordable and easy to use Memory Drive Unit which opens up the power of F65RAW and SStP workflow to a much wider audience. The SR-D1 is the latest addition to Sonys SRMASTER family and has been designed for drag and drop ingest of content from SRMemory media recorded using cameras such as the revolutionary F65/SR-R4 and the PMW-F3 with SR-R1.
The SR-D1 is equipped with a USB3.0 and eSATA interface for direct connection to a computer. Installation of SR-Driver software onto the computer brings the ability to drag and drop files from SRMemory media using Explorer or Finder. Clips can also be browsed before transfer using Sonys F65RAW Viewer or SR Viewer applications.
Peter Sykes, Strategic Marketing Manager, Sony Europe commented; By expanding the SRMASTER line up were making the power of SRMemory operation more accessible across applications such as on-set dailies or post production. The launch of the SR-D1 re-emphasises Sonys commitment to develop cutting-edge technology for professionals who are looking to create their best ever images in HD, 3D or True 4K.
First deliveries are scheduled for July 2012.
