Angelbird Technologies, the premier developer of camera-specific media for professional creatives, announces the addition of CFexpress Type B memory cards to their high-performance lineup of AV PRO media solutions. The call for quick adoption of advanced digital video production standards to 6k, 8k and beyond, is being driven by high-profile international broadcasting as well as an increased need for industrial data processing and performance requirements. CFexpress memory media meets the high-speed demands of new technology (media that can write data at a minimum of 400 MB/sec).
It also mirrors the XQD form factor– allowing select cameras that currently utilize XQD to now also accept CFexpress with a firmware update. But different from XQD, is that the CFexpress adopts the PCIe® Gen 3 interface standards promoted by the CompactFlash Association.
SUPER SPEED FOR THE FUTURE OF CREATIVE PRODUCTION
Angelbird’s AV PRO CFX and AV PRO CFX XT offer read/write speeds up to 1700 MB/s and 1400 MB/s. CFexpress memory cards perform at speeds 3.5x faster than CFast technology- the current memory card leader for high-bitrate video production.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced semiconductor technology, today announced development of the first standards-based prototype of a new type of SSD that features extensive scalability, unmatched durability and CPU-relieving functionality. Samsung’s advanced KV SSD prototype moves the storage workload from today’s server CPUs into the SSD without the need for any supportive device, which will lead to greater storage-related software and hardware efficiency.
“Our KV SSD prototype is leading the industry into a new realm of standardized next-generation SSDs, one that we anticipate will go a long way in optimizing the efficiency of network storage and extending the processing power of the server CPUs to which they’re connected,” said Hangu Sohn, Vice President of NAND Product Planning, Samsung Electronics.
Samsung’s KV SSD prototype is based on a new open standard for a Key Value Application Programming Interface (KV API) that was recently approved by SNIA. Last month, the SNIA’s KV API standard was selected as a Best of Show Industry Standards winner in the Most Innovative Flash Memory Technology Awards, at the 2019 Flash Memory Summit.Add a comment
