Kinefinity KineMAG SSD:
Certified Compatibility: KineMAG™ is born to match KineRAW cameras: it can handle high bandwidth True RAW recording and also both RAW recording. It has different capacities as 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. Bandwidth of 2K True RAW at 24fps is around 90MB/s, so the responding record time would be around 12, 24 and 48 minutes. As of GoPro-Cineform ™ RAW, responding record time might be around 70, 140, 280 minutes.
Reliability and Long life: KineRAW cameras need to write data sequentially to KineMAG™ SSD, and zero tolerable to data error/missing frame over various situation, so it demands KineMAG™ SSD working reliably and long-life. KineMAG™ is built based SLC flash which endures much longer than SSD with MLC flash which often used in cheap SSD.
Industry Standard: KineMAG™ SSD has a standard SATA II interface and so can be downloaded directly using one of your MAC or PC SATA II ports, or with a USB or FireWire to SATA II HDD dock adapter, or other external HDD/SSD case or adapter (You may use Macdrive ™ or freeware HFSexplorer if your workstation run Windows™, since KineMAG™ SSD file system is MAC HFS). This industry standard interface makes working with our cameras quick and easy and saves you the cost of needing special adapters to access the RAW data recorded by camera.
