flash memory cards, today announced the arrival of its newest memory
card series –SDHC HD Video Cards, designed specifically for recording,

latest camcorders record digital video at extremely high resolutions
without compromising image quality. However, the improved clarity of HD
video requires a significantly greater amount of storage space when
recording. Transcend’s SDHC HD Video Cards are fully equipped to handle
the increased capacity, speed, and reliability requirements of HD
video. When recording in high quality 1920x1080 AVCHD format at 13Mbps
compression rate, a 16GB Transcend SDHC HD Video Card can store 2 hours
and 40 minutes of video content. Moreover, if slightly lower quality
settings are used, the same 16GB card can record up to six full hours
of high definition video! For added convenience, the front of each
Transcend SDHC HD Video card features a useful space for labeling and
organizing recorded video content.

SDHC HD Video Cards are also fully Class 6 compliant, which means they
provide extremely fast data transfer speeds (guaranteed minimum write
speed of 6MB/s) to assure quick reaction time when used in digital
cameras and camcorders. Modern 10 megapixel digital cameras and HD
camcorders continuously save large amounts of high-resolution image
data to the memory card during use, and the speed at which cameras can
save this information directly affects its performance. Transcend’s
high-speed Class 6 SDHC HD Video Cards cater directly to digital camera
and HD camcorder users by allowing faster image and video saving for
improved overall camera response. Now available in 4GB, 8GB, and 16GB
capacities, Transcend’s SDHC HD Video Cards are fully backed by
Transcend’s comprehensive Lifetime Warranty.
