Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the expansion of its flash card product line with the introduction of high-capacity 600X CompactFlash cards with capacities now ranging up to 64GB. The new 64GB 600X CF card also features ultra-fast transfer rates of up to 90MB/s and supports the VPG-20 specification, ensuring professional photographers and enthusiasts benefit from the full high-resolution recording capabilities of today’s modern digital equipment.
Capturing fast-action images in enhanced detail, often during high-speed consecutive shooting or extended Full HD video recording sessions, requires a massive amount of storage space. Transcend`s 600X CF cards target users who demand vast capacity, superior speed, and long-term reliability without the inconvenience of switching cards. The 64GB 600X CF card can capture more than 13,000 still images (with a 10 megapixel camera) and record over three hours of Full HD video (1920x1080 at 38.6Mbps), allowing users to take full advantage of their high-end digital single lens reflex cameras (DSLR) and HD video camcorders.
For fast transfers between card and camera, the 64GB 600X CF card operates in quad-channel mode using Ultra DMA (UDMA) mode 7, and offers staggering read and write transfer speeds of up to 90MB/s. Recently released by the CompactFlash Association (CFA), the VPG-20 specification guarantees that compliant CF cards, including Trancend’s 16GB-64GB 600X and 32GB-64GB 400X CF cards, are capable of sustained video capture at up to 20 MB/s without dropping frames. As a result, Transcend`s Ultimate 600X CompactFlash cards are the definitive storage media choice to meet the requirements of professional video capture.
To assure robust durability and guaranteed performance, Transcend`s 600X CF cards contain built-in Error Correction Code (ECC) that automatically detects and corrects errors during data transfer, and also utilize a sophisticated wear-leveling algorithm for consistent long-life operation. For further peace of mind, all Transcend CF cards are comprehensively tested for compatibility, speed and reliability, and backed by Transcend`s Limited Lifetime Warranty.
Aside from the new extra-large 64GB version, Transcend`s 600X CF cards are also available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities.
