Superior Performance
For years, pro digital video camera pioneers Sony and ARRI have used SxS professional memory cards for capturing footage on select cameras, relying on the cards for their durability and speed. With the move to shooting in 4K and higher frame rates, cards fill up faster than ever, and the need for a truly high-speed card reader with the fastest interface available is undeniable.

Sonnet's SF3 Series - SxS Pro Card Reader fills the bill. Featuring a 40Gbps Thunderbolt 3 interface, this device quickly ingests footage from SxS memory cards to any Mac or Windows computer with Thunderbolt 3 ports—on location, in the studio, or in the edit suite—at the fastest speeds the cards will support.

Productivity Enhancer
The SF3 Series - SxS Pro Card Reader is the industry's first SxS card reader for Thunderbolt 3. This dual-slot reader takes advantage of Thunderbolt 3's 40Gbps bandwidth to ingest files simultaneously from two cards at maximum speed—more than double the average ingest speed of USB 3.0 card readers. Using the Sonnet SxS reader enables you to ingest footage from multiple cards in much less time for a significantly more efficient workflow.

Thunderbolt 3 – The USB 3 that does all
The SF3 Series - SxS Pro Card Reader includes two Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports; the first connects it to your computer, while the second supports daisy chaining of up to five additional Thunderbolt peripheral devices to a single port on your computer. The reader includes 10Gbps USB 3.1 Gen 2 support, meaning you can connect a USB device to the second port using the proper cable or adapter. The SxS reader also provides full support for connecting up to two 4K displays @ 60Hz or one 5K display @ 60Hz. For connected devices requiring extra power, 15 watts is provided to bus-powered other devices, such as the SF3 Series – CFast 2.0 Pro Card Reader.

 

Broad card support – including XQD and SDXC
The SF3 Series - SxS Pro Card Reader supports all generations of SxS media, up to the latest E Series cards. When used with proper adapters (sold separately), you can even use XQD and SDXC cards with this reader.
