The Lexar Professional Workflow Reader Solution allows users to mix and match

photographer's workflow process,' said Lexar Elite Photographer Scott Kelby, a
leading voice in photo editing and processing. 'In today's digital imaging
industry, speed is the major factor that impacts all photographers and
videographers. This product has been cleverly designed with a wonderful fit and
finish, and once again demonstrates how Lexar is listening to its customers and
delivering the kind of innovative products photographers need to stay on top in
this highly competitive business.' 

The Lexar Professional Workflow Reader Solution transfers RAW images, high-res
photos, and HD, 3D, and 4K video files at USB 3.0 speeds when using a USB 3.0
port. The modular design of the Professional Workflow Reader Solution makes it
adaptable to changing technologies for future use, including new and emerging
memory card formats. 

'Photographers and videographers constantly struggle with improving and
adjusting the efficiency of their personal workflows, and the growing number of
memory card formats make this even more challenging,' said Adam Kaufman,
product marketing manager, Lexar. 'We designed the Lexar Professional Workflow
Reader Solution to allow users to build a completely unique system that suits
their needs so they can get to editing and shooting sooner. Whether
photographers or videographers are shooting on four cards of the same format,
or four different types of cards, the Lexar Professional Workflow Reader
Solution lets them offload work faster, greatly reducing the time spent moving
content from a card to a computer.'
