Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the arrival of 1000x CompactFlash cards as part of its expanding flash card product line. Aimed at professional photographers, the new 1000x CF cards feature high-speed transfer rates up to 160MB/s read and 120MB/s write, ensuring maximum performance when used with today's cutting-edge digital camera equipment.
Fully compliant with CompactFlash revision 6.0, Transcend's "Ultimate" series 1000x CompactFlash cards operate in Ultra DMA (UDMA) transfer mode 7, the fastest interface speed available for CF cards. As a result, a top-end DSLR camera equipped with a 1000x CF card responds more quickly - especially important during fast-action burst mode shooting - and stores large images in RAW format faster than ever before. When back at the studio, 1000x CF cards help increase post-production efficiency with incredible read speeds of up to 160MB/s, which allows transferring images from card to computer in a matter of seconds.
To satisfy the needs of serious videographers, Transcend's 1000x CompactFlash cards implement the Video Performance Guarantee (VPG-20), which enables professional-quality video capture at sustained write speeds of at least 20MB/s without dropping frames. Available in up to 128GB capacity, these cards are the ultimate class-leading storage for ultra-high resolution Full-HD, 3D, and even 4K UHDTV (2160p) video recording.
To assure robust, long-life durability and guaranteed performance, Transcend's 1000x CF cards are manufactured using premium quality toggle mode NAND Flash memory chips. In addition, each card contains built-in BCH ECC (Error Correction Code) technology with read-retry for detecting and correcting errors during data transfer. Backed by Transcend's renowned Limited Lifetime Warranty, Transcend's 1000x CompactFlash cards are now available in 16GB (US$109.99), 32GB (US$229.99), 64GB (US$459.99) and 128GB (US$749.99) capacities.
