Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory
products, today announced it is adding a 16GB Class 4 SDHC Flash memory card to
give consumers greater storage flexibility and faster speed to optimize use of
today’s higher resolution imaging equipment. The new 16GB card 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 maximize overall performance of the recording device,” said Dave Lee, Flash
Memory Product Manager, APAC Region, Kingston. “Our new 16GB Class 4 memory card
answers the performance needs 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 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.

Kingston’s line of SDHC memory cards are backed by a lifetime warranty and
free technical support.
