(24 December 2013) Transcend Information, Inc., a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the launch of its Premium Series 800x CompactFlash cards. A worthy addition to Transcend’s expanding line of CompactFlash memory cards, the 800X CF cards feature incredibly fast transfer rates for capturing professional-quality images and Full HD 1080p video. Equally impressive are the huge 64GB to 256GB capacity options on offer, which enable photographers to store many more high-resolution images and enjoy extended recording sessions.
Professional photographers faced with the challenges of a difficult assignment must be able to depend on a high quality card that can deliver the speed and capacity necessary to complete the job. With this in mind, Transcend’s new 800x CompactFlash cards boast outstanding transfer rates of up to 120MB/s read and 60MB/s write and extra large storage capacity of up to 256GB. When used with advanced camcorders and DSLR cameras, these cards come in particularly handy during continuous burst mode shooting and Full HD and 3D video recording. Back at the studio, the 120MB/s read speed of Transcend’s 800x CF cards ensures less time spent transferring card content to the computer and more time spent on photo retouching and video editing.
The latest 800x CF cards join Transcend’s popular memory card lineup which includes the award-winning 1000x CompactFlash cards. Featuring staggering transfer speeds of up to 160MB/s, Transcend’s Ultimate Series 1000x CompactFlash cards represent Transcend’s highest performance professional card solution. The 1000x CF cards are the ideal upgrade for professional photographers and videographers looking for faster card read and write speed to complement their cutting-edge digital camera equipment.
Transcend’s Ultimate and Premium Series CompactFlash cards have been optimized to capture smooth Full HD footage with full support for the Video Performance Guarantee (VPG-20). VPG-20 guarantees enhanced video recording at a minimum write speed of 20MB/s without dropping frames. Moreover, the 1000x and 800x CF cards assure robust, long-life durability and guaranteed performance thanks to their top quality toggle mode MLC NAND Flash memory chips and built-in BCH ECC (Error Correction Code) technology with read-retry, which detects and corrects errors during data transfer.
Backed by Transcend’s renowned Limited Lifetime Warranty, Transcend’s 800x CompactFlash cards are now available in 64GB (US$179), 128GB (US$349) and 256GB (US$699) capacities.
