Kingston Introduces Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) 4GB Card

Kingston Technology
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
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 Scott Chen, Vice President, APAC Business Development,
Kingston. “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.”

commonly found in consumer HD and DVD videos, super VCD, box top DVRs and

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 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.”
