Sony announces new memory card
Sony has announced the new SxS PRO memory card designed for professional videographers.
The new card, available in 8GB (model SBP-8) and 16GB (model SBP-16) capacities, is designed to offer fast transfer speeds and is compliant with the ExpressCard industry standard.
Sony will adopt the high-speed SxS PRO card in its XDCAM EX series professional camcorders, which are planned to be launched this fall.
The SxS PRO card is based on the SxS memory card specification, which enables high-speed data transfer. The SxS PRO card offers a more efficient workflow by reducing transfer times of large data files, such as high-definition video with speeds of 800 Mb/s. The card’s compact size is well suited to the lighter and smaller camcorders needed for mobile videography and gives users more opportunities to shoot in a wider range of conditions.
