New memory stick from Sony - Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX from Sony gets even faster.
HD videos and high resolution still images can be transferred significantly faster to your PC with the latest Memory Stick HX technology that increases the speed of transferring data by 50% compared to existing products - from 20MB/s to 30MB/s.
For anyone routinely dealing with large files this soon adds up to a major improvement in convenience as it reduces the wait for copying, backing up or getting ready to view or edit your work.
HD video transferred to your PC – fast!
Handycam® users who wish to edit HD video on a PC, such as a VAIO, will readily appreciate the speed advantage of the new HX technology. A 30GB Full HD video file can transfer onto a PC in just 17 minutes. This is in the order of fourtimes faster than a Memory Stick PRO Duo Mark2 card and significantly faster than SD/SDHC cards.
You don’t have to be a Handycam owner to benefit either. It could just as easily be HD video taken with a Cyber-shot or huge volumes of high resolution still images captured with the burst shooting mode on a Sony DSLR. The wait still goes away.
Benefit of burst shooting with a DSLR
Thank to its high performance, Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo can cope with the advanced continuous shooting mode with DSLR from Sony witout missing any key shots. Other cards cannot keep up with the camera and the shooting speed slows down while burst shooting. HX is the ideal choice for burst shooting.
Like all Sony Memory Cards, the new Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX range offers more than the obvious benefits of quality and reliability. Customers are entitled to a free download of two essential applications: File Rescue and x-Pict Story™ for memory card. File Rescue gives you peace of mind, and x-Pict Story is a fun, creative tool for making and sharing slideshows of your favorite pictures.
Memory Card File Rescue
Sometimes things go wrong and photos, music or video clips get lost. File Rescue is a powerful tool for recovering lost data that is simple enough for anyone to use. Available as a free download to Memory Card customers, File Rescue scans the card and restores* lost files with an impressive 90% success rate.
x-Pict Story for memory card
Great photos deserve to be seen and shared. x-Pict Story gives you the means to create striking, original slide shows, complete with your choice of music. The three-step process is very easy, and an upload option (through Picture Motion Browser) makes it simple to use video sharing sites like YouTube.
