Pioneer Japan recently sent out a press today, announcing its new portable, clamshell type Blu-ray Disc writer, the BDR-XD06J-UHD. This USB 3.0 equipped drive measures only 133 × 14.8 x 133 mm and weighs in at a mere 230g. The BDR-XD06J-UHD is capable of 6x BD-R, 6x BD-R DL, 4x BD-R LTH, 2x BD-RE and 2x BD-RE DL writing speeds and a maximum BD-ROM read speed of 6x. It also writes to triple- (100GB) and quad-layer (128GB) BD-R media at 4x and triple-layer (100GB) BD-RE media at 2x.
What makes the BDR-XD06J-UHD truly special is its ability to play back Ultra HD Blu-ray content. When installed in a Windows 10 PC with the included WinDVD software and an i7 or i5 Kaby Lake processor, users can play back movies at 4K resolutions. The drive also ships with authoring software from CyberLink and is equipped with Pioneer's PureRead3+ technology, which greatly improves the reading performance of scratched and dirty discs. The BDR-XD06J-UHD is expected to hit stores in late March for about 15,000 Yen ($134US).Add a comment

Sony is increasing the speed and efficiency of their SD card lineup with the new SF-G Series. As performance demands and file sizes continue to increase, the SF-G Series of SD cards offer enhanced features optimized for professional photographers, DSLR and mirrorless camera users and videographers.
With a write speed of up to 299 MB/s, enabled by Sony’s unique firmware, the SF-G Series will be the world’s fastest SD cards. The quick write speed supports maximum performance of digital imaging devices, contributing to longer continuous shooting of high-resolution images with UHS-II supporting cameras. It also contributes to a shorter buffer clearing time so users never miss a critical moment.
Using Sony’s algorithm, the cards prevent the decrease of data-writing speeds and contribute to the camera’s ability of successive high speed shooting.
The cards also feature a read speed of up to 300MB/s. Paired with a memory card reader, the cards can transfer large volumes and file sizes to a computer very quickly, contributing to a more efficient workflow for professionals.Add a comment
The SD Association announced today UHS-III, doubling the fastest SD memory card transfer rate up to 624 megabytes per second (MB/s). UHS-III faster speeds help move large amounts of data generated by data-intense Gbps wireless communication, 360-degree cameras, drones, 3D, 4K and 8K videos recorded on SDXC and SDHC memory cards.
Immense storage capacities introduced with SDXC memory cards give users the ability to take more pictures and make unique video features on the latest imaging devices. Fast UHS bus interfaces help users manage that content more quickly. Since it is fully backwards compatible, devices offering UHS-III bus interface will accept the billions of existing SD memory cards in the market today.
“SD memory card capabilities continue to expand, paving the way for new and highly anticipated imaging and video features, from virtual reality to 8K video,” said Brian Kumagai, SDA president. “The SDA remains committed to supporting innovation by consumer electronics manufacturers and to delivering the same performance and interoperability consumers and professional users love about SD memory cards.”Add a comment
