The Storage Bridge NSB-25 Modular Memory Card Backup System from NEXTO DI is a mobile and expandable data backup device that features USB 3.0 connectivity and is designed for videographers, photographers, and those who are working in the field with large amounts of imaging data. The NSB-25 will allow users to create a backup from almost every type of memory card through the use of an interchangeable memory card module. The optional memory card modules support SxS, XQD, AXSM, P2, express P2, AJA QUAD, CFast, REDMAG, and 2.5" HDD/SSDs. The NSB-25 supports exFAT, FAT32, UDF, and HFS+, allowing it to work with files 4GB and larger and also has two fixed memory card slots for CompactFlash and SD cards.

The NSB-25 supports several backup options through its MCopy function, allowing users to simultaneously back up on up to three drives. After you have finished shooting footage, remove the memory card from your camera and insert it into a card slot on the NSB-25. You can then securely create up to three backups (two hard drive modules and one external drive) simultaneously. This backup process will allow you to create a copy for archiving, a copy for editing, and a master backup. For example, your data can be archived to HDD 1 on the NSB-25, which has the same data that was copied and verified bit-by-bit from the cards. Data backed up to HDD 2 can be delivered for editing and the NSB-25 can also be synched with a RAID drive to create a master backup while on location. The NSB-25 also supports incremental backup, meaning that only files that have changed since the last backup will be copied. This will help backups to be completed more quickly and consume a minimum amount of storage space.

The NSB-25 is also able to playback 2K footage or preview 4K footage on its 5" TFT-LCD 800 x 480 touchscreen monitor, which also includes an internal speaker, a stereo audio out jack, and an HDMI out to an external monitor. 2K Playback supports MPEG2 up to 50 Mb/s as well as AVCHD, H.264, ProRes, and DNxHD. 2K Preview supports AVC-Intra and XAVC, while 4K Preview supports Cinema DNG through a firmware upgrade.

The NSB-25 includes an AC power adapter, a USB 3.0 cable, a car charger cable, a hand strap, and rubber bumpers.

USB 3.0 Connectivity

The NSB-25 attaches to your computer via the USB 3.0 interface. Once connected, you can browse, edit, or transfer contents of internal hard drive modules to your computer. The removable internal hard drive modules also feature USB 3.0 connectivity.

Copy All Files to Another Drive (Sync)

You can quickly and easily copy all files from an internal hard drive module of the NSB-25 to another drive. Only those files that have changed since the last sync will be copied, to perform faster and save space.

Export Folders

You can select multiple folders and move them from an internal hard drive module to another drive. The selected folders must be located on the same drive.

Display Previous Backup Status

The NSB-25 automatically shuts down if it detects inactivity after the XCopy, MCopy, or Verify process. When the device is switched back on again, it displays the previous backup status; either "Success" or "Failed". You can check details in the LOG file for that drive when the Success message is displayed.

Naming A Drive and Folder

When you backup from the card, a folder is automatically created. The folder is named according to the file's most recent date (ex. 20140401.000). Folders are numbered in the order they are copied. For multiple users, the NSB-25 does not change the drive name during the hard drive format. Set your preferred drive name at the computer to differentiate your drives.

Log File

The NSB-25 generates a LOG file (CRC-protected) to keep track of usage by the user and then saves it on each drive attached to it. The Log file provides information about XCopy, Sync, computer connectivity etc.
