Sony speeds up SxS PRO memory card range

Sony Corporation has expanded its SxS PRO memory card range with a new generation which offers twice as fast writing speed than previous models. The new SxS PRO 64GB, SBP-64A model, can read and write data at up to an astonishing 1.2Gbps* through an ExpressCard slot, without the need for an adapter.

With this evolution of increased writing speed, professional users will be able to capture video of higher bit-rate. They will also be able to capture 120 minutes of recording in HD 422 50Mbps MXF mode, which is widely used in the broadcast area, and transfer content directly to a laptop in just 8 minutes*, which will highly improve the global workflow.

In addition to its distinguished data transfer speed the SBP-64A also features high durability, reliability and useful functions with XDCAM/XDCAM EX, included in the full SxS memory card range, which is achieved through “Intelligent Technology by SxS”.

“Intelligent Technology by SxS” has been developed to reach impressive data reliability & durability and to be completely compatible with Sony XDCAM/XDCAM EX equipment.

Data reliability is achieved through the “Power failure management” function which enables the card to read the data again by re-creating data management table** in the event of sudden loss of power supply or if the card is accidentally picked out, as well as through the data-error correction or the data-defects minimizing function. Also, like its SxS predecessors, SBP-64A offers salvage function and slow-motion recording function as a result of being co-engineered with XDCAM/XDCAM EX.

The new SxS PRO 64GB will be available in October 2011.
