The flexible AJ-PCD20 also serves as a stand-alone external drive when connected with laptops for in-the-field use. The unit is equipped with an IEEE 1394b (800Mbps) interface in addition to the USB2.0 interface provided on the previous model (AJ-PCD10), enabling it to support both Mac and Windows PC.
The five PC card slots let you mount up to five P2 cards at the same time. This is especially convenient for editing a continuous clip recorded by a P2 camera in sequence onto multiple cards.
Install the AJ-PCD20 into a 5-inch bay on a desktop PC 1 and use it as an internal drive in a PC. Or, with the AC adaptor and USB or IEEE1394b 2 cable, you can use it as a stand-alone external drive. You can also use the AJ-PCD20 as an external drive with a laptop PC that’s not equipped with a 5-inch bay.
