Verbatim bietet mit seiner neuen PRO Series die schnellsten CompactFlash-Karten bis 8 GB an


With the new high performance Memory Cards, Verbatim is fulfilling the need to meet the growing global need for Memory Cards with large capacities and short transfer times for various applications.

The new PRO Series CompactFlash Memory Card range is designed to stand up to the tough demands of the everyday life of high-end professional photographers, who work under in extreme conditions and place high demands on their Flash Cards.  The read and write speeds of up to 45MB per second allows users to capture large amounts of picture data using rapid continuous shooting, as well as offering fast file saving and immediate access to saved pictures. The 8GB CompactFlash Memory Card from Verbatim also has space for 2000 photos in JPEG format at an extremely high resolution of 12,000 megapixels, or for up to 200 pictures in file space intensive RAW formats (raw data). The Cards thus offer enough room even for fast picture sequences of up to six pictures per second, and make longer continuous shootings possible without having to change Memory Card.

“The Verbatim PRO Series is designed with high-end photographers in mind and meets the file capacity needs of high resolution digital cameras and high definition camcorders. With a file transfer rate of up to 45MB per second, which is equal to a DVD writing speed of 300x, it meets the highest speed requirements and is among the fastest cards on the market at the moment”, says Hans Christoph Kaiser, Business Development Manager Flash and USB Memory for Verbatim EUMEA.

New Verbatim SDHC and Micro SDHC Cards
The Verbatim SDHC Memory Cards with 8GB memory capacity are also available from now in specialist shops. The SDHC Memory Cards are in the highest speed class 6. They are thus particularly suitable for professional digital photography, including continuous photography, and for videography. The 8GB SDHC Memory Card costs €79 (RRP), the 4GB version €39.99 (RRP). The 16GB SDHC Memory Card and the 8GB microSDHC Memory Card Class 4 and 6 will be available in shops from January 2008.

Verbatim Hi-Speed Universal Memory Card Reader

For the rapid reading of and writing onto Flash Memory media, Verbatim has the solution: the Hi-Speed Universal Memory Card Reader. “The unique feature is that our Card Reader is not only fast, but also fully compatible with SDHC, which is not yet a standard feature in other card readers”, says Kaiser. The light, handy gadget makes it possible for the user to read and transfer data from his/her PC onto the card or between various Memory Cards which are inserted into the Card Reader. The Verbatim Card Reader has five card ports and supports all conventional formats such as SecureDigital, miniSD, MultiMedia, Reduced Sized MultiMedia, SmartMedia, CompactFlash, Memory Stick and Microdrive.
