Panasonic Now Shipping 32 GB P2 Cards
December 7, 2007
Panasonic Broadcast & Television Systems has announced that the 32 GB version of the company’s P2 solid-state memory card is now available.
The increase in storage capacity will allow users to shoot up to 120 minutes of DVCPRO video and up to 32 minutes of AVC-Intra 100 or DVCPRO HD quality. When used with Panasonic’s AJ-HPX3000 HD camcorder and its five card capacity, the new card will provide up to 200 minutes of AVC-Intra 1080/24p video.
Panasonic said the new card has a transfer speed of four times that of a single SD card and can be used at temperatures up to 176 degrees F.
The 32 GB card is fully compatible with current Panasonic 16 GB P2 cards, allowing users who have upgraded to the 16 GB P2 to instantly use the higher capacity storage device. For users who have not converted to the 16 GB cards, an upgrade will be necessary.
