NEXTO DI Storage Bridge

The Nexto Storage Bridge is a versatile rushes back up and playback device. Traditionally you would need to take a bulky laptop with a multitude of external drives to wrangle rushes. With the Bridge everything is centralised into one compact unit. The unit can house 2 hard drives internally using the specially designed cases and a third via an external usb slot.


The unit also comes with an inbuilt SD and CF card slot. But with the reader slot you are able to mount a multitude of readers to fit any scenario and a range of codecs through the use of an interchangeable memory card module. Once setup, simply insert your card and select the copy and verify, which will then copy and verify a full SXS to two drives within 15 Mins.

With an internal battery that will last 2 hours of backing up to two drives. The D-tap power adaptor meaning you can power from a v-lock, you never need to worry about being in the field and wrangling again. Once the shoot ends you are able to use the 5 inch screen to playback the day’s rushes.


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

Multi Format
The NEXTO can take a range of formats including SXS, AJA Pak Media, C-Fast, CF, SD, Red Mag, Express P2, XQD, and P2
