轉換器的形狀與 SxS 內存卡相同，因此適合於 XDCAM EX 攝錄一體機上的介質插槽，無突出部分，在拍攝期間可將介質蓋放到位。
轉換器具有和 ExpressCard/34 相同的形狀，因此可插入 XDCAM EX 設備的 ExpressCard 插槽以及其他與 ExpressCard 兼容的硬體，例如 Windows PC 或 Mac。 與 PC 兼容
使用 XDCAM EX 硬體的 MEAD-SD02 錄制的 SD 卡介質可在 PC 上使用，且無需驅動程序。NLE 操作窗口或剪輯瀏覽器中顯示 XDCAM EX 的文件夾和文件，其顯示方式與 SxS 介質相同。 與 PXU-MS240 兼容
SxS 介質用 PXU-MS240 240GB HDD 備份單元與 MEAD-SD02 轉換器完全兼容，只需將帶有 SD 卡的轉換器插入 PXU-MS240 單元，即可將內容記錄到 MS240 的硬碟光碟機上。
Sony's innovative XDCAM EX professional product range is specifically designed
to exploit the ultimate high speed performance and reliability of SxS PRO and
SxS-1 media. However, SxS media is a professional format and not available from
retail outlets, so in situations in the field where additional media is required
or for cost-conscious users, where this ultimate performance is less important,
Sony have developed the MEAD-MS01 adaptor to enable the use of consumer Memory
The MEAD-MS01 adaptor is the same shape as SxS memory cards so as to fit within the media slots on XDCAM EX camcorders, with no protrusions, allowing the media cover to be in place during shooting. The adaptor can accept one high speed Memory Stick which simply slots inside.
At the time of writing (October 2009), Sony Professional recommends only the Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX Series - specifically the MS-HX8G (8-GB), MS-HX16G (16-GB), and MS-HX32G (32-GB) are recommended.
Using 8-, 16-, or 32-GB media, approximately 35, 70, or 140 minutes of recording (in SP mode) can be achieved.
Please note, it is not recommended to utilise the Slow Motion recording function due to speed limitations of Memory Stick media. The nature of the adaptor and Memory Stick media will also mean slightly less reliability than SxS media - caution should be exercised when turning off XDCAM EX hardware during recording. XDCAM EX hardware may need firmware upgrade to use MEAD-MS01 - please see specifications for more information.
