The card reader also handles both AXS-A and SxS memory cards.

Features

High speed transfer by Thunderbolt 2 interface
The AXS-AR1 AXS media reader offers an incredible maximum data read speed of up to 9.6 Gbps (1200MB/s) from AXS memory via Thunderbolt 2.
Daisy chain
The unit supports a daisy chain function whereby more than one reader can be connected via Thunderbolt 2 to a Mac.
Compatible slot for AXS Memory and SxS Memory
The AXS-AR1 is the best transfer reader for using PMW-F55/F5 and AXS-R7/R5 because it supports not only AXS-A Memory but also SxS Memory. This can be particularly convenient after a shoot when using simultaneous recording with both media types.
macOS support
The AXS-AR1 is compatible with Mac computers with macOS 10.6 or later that support Thunderbolt 2. Operation is not guaranteed on all computers.
