What we think:
Tapeless production with multiple SxS-based camcorders can mean a deluge of media cards. Ingesting them all fast into an edit programme or into archive is key for a professional workflow. Nothing is faster or safer than the Qio. And witha built-in SATA controller, transferring directly into a RAID drive is the ultimate workflow.
