Lexar Media Announces 80X Professional CompactFlash Cards with
12MB/s Minimum Sustained Write Speed
Professional Memory Cards Include New Write Acceleration with Optimized Firmware for Increased In-Camera Performance
Las Vegas, February 12, 2004 (PMA Booth H100) -- Lexar Media, Inc. (Nasdaq: LEXR), a leading manufacturer and marketer of high-performance digital media and accessories, today doubled the minimum sustained write speed capability of its Professional Series CompactFlash (CF) product line to 80X, or 12MB per second. With this introduction, Lexar Media is providing the fastest CompactFlash with guaranteed write speeds available, serving the needs of professional photographers and all digital camera users requiring faster image write times. Lexar is offering its 80X Professional Series CompactFlash cards in five different capacities, including 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2GB and 4GB. Lexar Media today also announced a 8GB 40X Professional Series CompactFlash card, extending the companys CF line with the highest capacity CompactFlash card on the market.
Lexars new 80X CF cards include an enhanced version of Write Acceleration technology, which optimizes the cards firmware to reduce overhead associated with transferring data from the camera to the memory card, and improves in-camera performance in high-resolution CompactFlash based cameras. In addition, Lexars new Write Acceleration provides a larger controller buffer to accommodate transferring up to 32 sectors of data to the card in one command, in cameras supporting this feature. CompactFlash cards without Write Acceleration typically transfer only one sector of data at a time.
Our new 80X speed-rated cards will satisfy the needs of professional photographers who crave speed, said John Omvik, Director of Professional Products Marketing, Lexar Media. Professional photographers cant afford to miss important images because their memory cards cant keep up. With Lexars new 80X cards, they wont.
The new cards include a free copy of Lexars award-winning Image Rescue 2.0 software to recover seemingly lost or deleted images from memory cards. Image Rescue 2.0 now recovers images from any memory card format or brand, and for added convenience, can be used with all mass storage compliant card readers including USB 2.0, USB 1.1 and FireWire readers.
Lexar Media does more for serious photographers than any other memory card manufacturer, said Jeffrey Aaronson, internationally recognized photojournalist. These new cards are exceptionally fast and with dedicated support for professionals, plus their image recovery software, Lexars Pro CF cards are professional photographers ideal choice.
