I love this! The NEXTO DI NVS 2825 Video Storage Air is a location media backup device. I first came across the predecessor the unit back in 2009 and I loved it then. In fact I made a video about it back then for CVP. Anyway they have a new device which is awesome...well 2 models actually. The NVS 2501 and the NVS 2825 The unit I have to review is the NVS 2825
But what's very cool is that the device is wifi enabled allowing you can download their NVS Player app and stream your backed up rushes on your iPad, iPhone or Android.
Ultra Fast Copy
The SSD is a 512 GB drive but you can simultaneously backup onto an external USB 3.0 device and therefore create a dual backup on location. You could then give one drive to a producer and keep the SSD yourself- Also you can use the USB 3.0 to edit straight off the internal SSD drive. It will copy 32GB of data in only 6 minutes and copy and verify 32GB in 12 minutes.
You can backup for P2/SxS, CF, SD/SDHC/SDXC and file formats (FAT32/exFAT/UDF) So it will work across f5 and F55 footage as well as dslr and 4K.
WIFI & NVS Player
The NVS 2825 will stream over it's own wifi network and so you can preview rushes make pre edit decisions.
The NEXTO comes with an internal battery that will last 2 hours and an external rechargeable battery pack also. In addition it ships with a mains unit and a 12v car adaptor.
I like this device a lot- it's especially good if you don't want to drag your laptop with you on location as it can verify and playback your media giving you complete confidence. It will be especially useful if you are shooting Canon 1DC or C500 or Sony F5 or F55 because of the amount of data those formats create and the price of proprietary media.
It's rugged and easy to use - I Love it!
here's my original review of the NVS2500 in 2009
