Kingston launches 16GB card
Dubai, February 11, 2008
Kingston Technology Company, a leader in memory products, has launched a 16GB Class 4 SDHC Flash memory card.
The new card will be available to the Mena region and is the largest capacity in Kingston’s line of SDHC cards, which include 4- and 8GB SDHC Class 2/4/6 versions.
“Higher resolution digital cameras and increasingly popular HD video camcorders require high capacity memory cards with faster data transfer rates (DTRs) to maximise overall performance of the recording device,” said Antoine Harb, business development manager for Kingston Technology Middle East and Africa. “Our new 16GB Class 4 memory card answers the performance needs of consumers or professionals in the Mena region and expands Kingston’s product line to provide a memory solution for every application.”
Even with today’s high resolution recording devices, a 16GB memory card can store literally thousands of photos and hours of high definition video. For example, the new 16GB SDHC card can capture more than 7,500 images (with a 6MP camera) and more than four hours of video (for 6Mbps HD Extended recording).
Kingston Technology SDHC memory cards are offered in three different speed classes (2, 4 and 6) with each speed class designation reflecting the minimum sustained DTR. For example, a Class 2 SDHC card has a minimum DTR of 2 megabytes per second, while a Class 6 SDHC card has a minimum DTR of 6 megabytes per second. These cards are the perfect solution for today’s SDHC-compatible devices that run MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and other high quality video compression used by consumer HD and DVD video. –TradeArabia News Service
