The MXM EX-SSD recorder is designed to bring longer recording time without the need for an external power source! It is a versatile, cost effective and highly portable solution for Sony's XDCAM series. The MXM enclosure supports USB 2.0 and eSATA input and output allowing up to 150MB/s transfer rate.  

History and development

The EX-SSD Recorder has been thoroughly tested and developed over the past 12 months. We have accomplished over 500 hours of recording with various SSDs (Solid State Drives) which included short and long clips. 1.8” and 2.5” SSDs have been tested, and eventually it was settled upon 2.5” SSD as it slowly becomes the most cost effectivesolution for alternative media recording. We were testing and developing various EX-SSD Recorder enclosures and chose this MXM EX-SSD Recorder enclosure, as it gives the best reliability, speed and is the most compatibility.

Usage and advantages

The EX-SSD Recorder has been designed to complement the MXML flash memory adapter and not to replace them.  This enclosure is to be used only with SSD (Solid State Drive) as it provides the best reliability. No noise is generated due to the lack of moving parts and rotation, thus is shockproof. Additionally, no heat is generated and can be operated in virtually any environment.

An excellent choice for corporate productions which allows fast transfer rates of up to 150 MB/sec via eSATA only.

The EX-EX-SSD Recorder has a quick and simple assembly.  It is light and shockproof.  It represents an excellent choice for continuous
recording above 32GB. The hot-swap capability allows a USB SSD recorder to be plugged in or unplugged without turning the system off. In additional the eSATA port allows up to 6 times faster transfer speed.

Please note, maximum recording time on the EX1 and EX3 is 281 mins. (80GB). On the EX1R recording time is limited only to the size of the SSD used.  The minimum firmware versions on EX series cameras required are:



Firmware V. 1.20 or higher
