Milpitas, CA—Lexar enhanced its Professional Workflow line with the Lexar Professional Workflow UR1—a three-slot microSDHC/microSDXC UHS-I, USB 3.0 reader. The new reader is engineered to quickly transfer 4K video and other large media files from three cards at once.
Geared for professional photographers, videographers and adventure seekers, the reader is an option for those who need to offload video from sports camcorders and cameras that require multiple memory cards for extended shooting. When populating all four bays of the customizable Lexar Professional Workflow hub, users can move files from 12 cards at once.
“The video files that sports camcorders and aerial cameras capture are typically extremely large, and it can take a significant amount of time for users to offload content once shooting is complete,” said Adam Kaufman, director, Card Product Marketing, Lexar. “This new three-slot reader cuts down the waiting time, letting users automate the process of transferring files through concurrent downloads and ultimately view, edit and share their content much faster.”
The Lexar Professional Workflow UR1 reader is compatible with the company’s Professional Workflow HR2 (Thunderbolt 2/UBS 3.0 reader and storage drive hub) and Professional Workflow HR1 (USB 3.0 reader and storage drive hub).
The Lexar Professional Workflow line also consists of a selection of other memory card readers, including SDHC/SDXC UHS-I, CompactFlash, XQD and CFast 2.0, as well as two storage drives in 512GB and 256GB capacities.
The new Lexar Professional Workflow UR1 reader has an SRP of $39.99 and will be available in October 2014. lexar.com
