Sony proudly introduces the HXR-FMU128, an optional 128-GB flash memory unit exclusively designed for the HXR-NX5U camcorder. This enables hybrid recording of video footage – another world first for an AVCHD professional camcorder. Other capabilities include simultaneous recording of HD and HD video footage, and even the combination of HD and SD, realizing an instant backup in the desired format. The 128-GB storage capacity provides continuous recording for almost half a day at the highest bit-rate – incredible in a unit of such compact size. This is an ideal option for recording music festivals, seminars, and weddings, and for making documentaries, all of which require extended recording times.

Simple Direct Attachment
The HXR-FMU128 is designed exclusively for this camcorder, so it attaches directly to the back of the HXR-NX5U.

Long, High-quality Recording
The memory unit enables approximately 11 hours of continuous recording in the highest FX 24-Mbps* mode.
* FX 24-Mbps mode comprises 21-Mbps of video data and 3-Mbps of audio and other data.

Recording Time on HXR-FMU128

Hybrid Recording with HXR-NX5U and HXR-FMU128

SD for today, HD for tomorrow, both acquired by one shot

Memory Card + Flash Memory Unit
Identical clips on different media provides instant backup

HYBRID Workflow
Media for Editing + Media for Archiving
Simultaneous ingesting to two computers will allow editing and archiving at the same time

Simple Data Transfer and Input

Simple connection to a computer via a USB slot means there’s no need for an external power supply. Once the HXR-NX5U is linked to a PC via a USB2.0 cable, files can be uploaded directly. This allows fast file transfer to popular NLE systems, and saves valuable time.

- HXR-FMU128 formatted by a 60i (50i) camcorder cannot be used by a 50i (60i) camcorder.
- Rebooting of the camcorder is needed when HXR-FMU128 is attached while the camcorder power is ON
