Kingston Introduces Secure Digital
High-Capacity (SDHC) 4GB Card
Fountain Valley, Calif., Sept. 26, 2006 – Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it will begin producing the new Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Class 2 card and enhance the function of its existing 15-in-1 Reader to support the growing storage demands of high performance digital still cameras, digital video cameras and other high resolution image recording devices. The new SDHC memory cards are available now in 4GB* capacities with a retail price of $199.00 USD through Kingston’s global network of resellers.
“Although identical in size to today’s standard SD card, SDHC cards can handle the tremendous levels of data that today’s digital cameras and MP3 players are capable of delivering,” said Keyla Velazquez, product manager Digital Media / Flash Memory, Kingston Technology Company. “SDHC cards are a perfect match for today’s digital SDHC compatible devices that support MPEG-4 and high quality video compression commonly found in consumer HD and DVD videos, super VCD, box top DVRs and digital television.”
The SDHC memory card is a new standard set by the SD Card Association that redefines performance classifications and capacity. Based on this standard, SDHC cards can deliver capacities beyond the 2GB threshold of present day SD cards and offer three speed classes (Class 2, 4, & 6) that guarantee minimum sustained transfer rates to support large digital video recordings for optimum performance. SDHC cards will only be recognized by SDHC host devices; manufacturers currently offering SDHC host cameras include: Canon, Pentax, Sanyo, Casio and Nikon. Kingston will add SDHC compatibility for its popular 15-in-1 Reader at the time of this launch. The retail price for the reader will remain $19.00.
“The growth in sales for consumer devices that require higher levels of storage continues to rise,” said Ed Lee, Director Consumer Research for InfoTrends. “Based on the sales performance of SD cards over the last few years coupled with the increase in high-capacity, high quality consumer electronics devices, we anticipate the SDHC growth will be very significant through the holiday season and beyond.”
Kingston’s SDHC cards are 100 percent tested and are backed by a lifetime warranty and 24/7 live technical support.
