UHS-I SDHC and SDXC Cards are ideal for capturing and transferring high-definition video and digital photography
Eschborn, Germany – August 23, 2012 – Meeting the increasing demand for high-performance memory cards, Verbatim introduces a range of SDHC and SDXC Cards with UHS-I specification – the fastest category of high-performance SD cards available today with bus interface speeds up to 104MB/s.
Conforming to standards set by the SD Association, the UHS-I SDHC and SDXC Cards from Verbatim offer extremely fast read speeds of up to 600x (90MB/sec) and very quick write speeds of 166x (25MB/sec).
With a write protect feature to prevent accidental erasure of data and generous data storage capacities of up to 64GB available to capture and transfer high-definition (HD) movies and high-resolution digital photos, the memory cards from Verbatim enable professional photographers and videographers to use SDHC or SDXC-based cameras and camcorders rather than relying solely on CompactFlash or SSD. The increasing use of mobile applications also demands higher storage capacities and faster data transfer rates.
“The new Ultra High Speed designation UHS-I has been announced recently by the SD Association”, explains Chris Chalder, Business Development Manager for Verbatim EUMEA. “Our new SDHC and SDXC Cards meet this specification, set the standards for next-level performance and are designed to store hours of high definition video.”
Verbatim’s UHS-I SDHC Cards are available to buy now and cost €29.99 for a 16GB card and €49.99 for a 32GB, while the UHS-I SDXC Card will be released in 64GB later this year.
