Inglewood, CA (March 3, 2009) -- The last thing you want to do when you are on the road, living in the moment, is to pull out your laptop so you can back up the video or photos you just took. But, with NEXTO DIís latest product, you can finally ditch the laptop. At the 2009 PMA Show, International Supplies, a leading distributor of imaging supplies chosen by NEXTO DI to launch its product here in the U.S., will give a sneak peak at a new portable storage device that allows you to backup on-the-go. It is called NEXTO eXtreme.
NEXTO eXtreme enables users to backup any camcorder or camera without a laptop--by using the built-in memory card reader or direct connect USB-OTG (On-The-Go) feature. The NEXTO eXtreme is perfect when you are in the field, shooting on location, or traveling. All you have to do is insert the memory card or connect the USB port to the eXtreme, and at the touch of a single button, you can copy, delete, browse, and backup your video or photos.
"In today's digital world, backing up is critical," explains Henry Moon, NEXTO DI's Marketing Director. "But when you're mobile and pressed for time, you need a device that's fast, reliable and easy to use. NEXTO eXtreme is a perfect solution for that."
The innovative eXtreme not only confirms that the backup was complete, but it also checks the integrity of your video clips and photos so if for any reason, it did not backup properly, you would know immediately. It also detects faults and possible future hard drive errors.
Using Nexto's patented technology, X-Copy, to enhance backup speed, eXtreme is eight times faster than most comparable products on the market. Not only can it back up 1 GB of data within 40 seconds, but users can back up to 60 GB of images with a single battery charge, or up to 140 GB with an auxiliary battery. Plus, it only backs up any files that have changed since the previous backup, thus saving you even more time. The hard drive is available in 160 GB, 250 GB, 320 GB, 500 GB, and can be expanded all the way up to 2 TB (terabytes) of storage so buyers can choose the capacity that best fits their specific storage needs.
NEXTO eXtreme supports all standard memory cards. Because it can store all types of files (video footage, photos, data, music, movies and games), eXtreme, with its eSATA interface, can easily serve as a fast, reliable external hard drive for backup at home or work. It is compatible with PC, MAC and UNIX. NEXTO eXtreme is also so compact and lightweight that it fits in the palm of your hand so you can conveniently take your video and photos with you wherever you go.
The suggested retail price for a 160 GB NEXTO eXtreme is $429.99 and it comes with a one year warranty, a carrying case, long and short USB cords, a USB extension cord, and an AC adaptor. Auxiliary batteries and car chargers are sold separately.
