Panasonic has unveiled a new line of SD High Capacity (SDHC) class 10 UHS-1 (Ultra High Speed) solid-state memory cards with transfer rates of 90MB/s, or four-and-a-half times as fast as the previous generation of SDHC media. The new RP-SDB series of cards — available in storage capacities of 8GB, 16GB and 32GB — are optimized for Panasonic’s broad AVCCAM line of affordable HD camcorders.
The new UHS-1 media facilitate offload speeds of as low as 1.5 minutes from the 8GB card, to three minutes from the 16GB card, and six minutes from the 32GB card. To achieve the SBD Series UHS-1’s media’s high-speed transfer, a user must have a computer embedded with USB 3.0 technology and equipped with either a Panasonic UHS-1 USB adapter or with an SDHC card slot that supports the UHS-1’s chip.
