Lexar media clocks 2.4MB Per second with new 16X professional series CompactFlash -
Lexar Media, have announced their 16X Professional Series CompactFlash Digital Film will begin shipping November 1. Lexar say the 16X speed rated Professional Series memory cards, capable of a minimum sustained write speed of 2.4MB per second, will significantly reduce the time it takes for many digital cameras to read and write high-resolution image files. Lexar Media pioneered the adoption of the 'x' speed rating for solid state storage, where x equals 150 kb per second, as used by other digital storage devices such as CD ROMs.
'Improvements in camera resolution and image quality have increased the importance of our speed-rated CompactFlash cards,' said Eric Stang, president and CEO, Lexar Media. 'Lexar Media has long been the performance leader in memory cards and the only company to individually speed-rate its products so that our customers know exactly what performance they are buying.'
Lexar Media Professional Series CompactFlash digital film has become the choice of professional photographers shooting world-renowned events including the Superbowl and Grammy Awards. Pro Series customers receive free 24-hour technical support and free data recovery services. Lexar Media CompactFlash has upgradeable firmware to allow it to be optimised for specific cameras models, is guaranteed to be compatible with CompactFlash digital cameras, is USB-enabled for quick and easy image transfer and is covered by a lifetime warranty.
