Lexar Announces New Professional 1800x microSD UHS-II Cards
New Cards Provide High-Speed Capture and Transfer of Video and Photo for Sports Cameras, Aerial Cameras, Tablets, and Smartphones
Milpitas, CA, January 6, 2016 – Lexar, a leading global brand of flash memory products, today announced the new Lexar® Professional 1800x microSDHC™ and microSDXC™ UHS-II cards with read transfer speeds up to 270MB per second. Designed for sports camcorders, aerial camera, tablets, and smartphones, the new microSD™ cards leverage Ultra High Speed II (U3 technology) to provide faster capture, play back, and transfer of high-quality videos and photos.
“Today’s professional videographers, photographers, and mobile power users require a microSD card that delivers the speeds that the latest sophisticated devices require,” said Steffi Ho, product marketing manager, Lexar. “Whether using a smartphone, tablet, or aerial camera, the Lexar Professional 1800x microSD UHS-II cards let users manage their large media files and maximise workflow from start to finish.”
Based on internal testing, Lexar Professional 1800x microSD UHS-II card users can offload data up to nine times faster with the microSD UHS-II USB 3.0 reader than when transferring content using traditional sports camcorders and accompanying USB cable. Available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities, Professional 1800x microSD UHS-II cards can quickly capture, play back, and transfer extended lengths of the highest quality 4K, 3D, and 1080p full-HD video, making it easy to preserve more than 15 hours of your favourite moments and then relive the action. As with all Lexar Professional cards, a lifetime copy of Image Rescue® software is included to recover any lost or deleted files, and each card is backed by a limited lifetime warranty.
The Professional 1800x microSDHC and microSDXC UHS-II cards are backwards compatible with UHS-I devices, performing up to the maximum threshold of UHS-I speed capabilities (SDR104), as well as non-UHS-1 devices, performing at Class 10 speeds. Lexar Professional 1800x microSD UHS-II cards are currently available with an MSRP of £65.99 (32GB), £109.99 (64GB), and £219.99 (128GB).
