Lexar Media, a provider of memory products for digital media, has launched the new Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader, a card reader that enables videographers to maximise their workflow with high transfer speeds.
The Dual-Slot reader leverages SuperSpeed USB (USB 3.0) technology to deliver high-speed performance that supports the new CompactFlash (CF) UDMA, Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC), and SD Ultra High Speed-I (UHS-I) memory cards, the company said.
In addition, the reader is backwards compatible with standard CF, SD, and Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) memory cards and USB 2.0 host devices.
The USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader features a pop-up mechanism that lets users close the reader when not in use, protecting it from dirt.
Lexar Media product marketing for cards director Manisha Sharma said USB is the popular connectivity option for PCs, and it’s critical that professional photographers and videographers have convenient and versatile tools to maximise their workflow and fully leverage the performance of their high-speed memory cards.
"The Lexar Professional USB 3.0 Dual-Slot Reader combines fast performance with a versatile, innovative design to provide pro and hobbyist shooters with a reader that dramatically reduces image transfer time," Sharma said.
"The speed offered by the reader enables users to move large volumes of high-resolution images and HD video faster than ever, allowing them to spend less time at the PC and more time on other activities."
