Icy news: Sony Speeds Up 64GB SxS PRO Memory Card

R/W at 1.2Gb/s through ExpressCard slot, without adapter

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-64 model, can read and write data at up to 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 8 minutes, which will improve the global workflow.
In addition to its data transfer speed the SBP-64A also features 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 data reliability and durability and to be 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.
