Fujifilm showcases new P2 Memory Cards AT NAB 2009

Fujifilm’s E-Series P2 memory cards offer an impressive maximum transfer rate of 1.2 Gbps when used with compatible hardware, made possible by a newly developed high-speed memory controller. The lifespan of Fujifilm’s E-Series P2 memory cards is rated for 5 years of use when recorded once daily at full capacity (100%) and up to 10 years when used at half capacity (50%). Offering the high reliability and durability that professionals require, each card is also designed to stand up to challenging conditions in any environment and is shock, vibration and temperature resistant. As a card approaches the end of its life cycle, a notification is automatically displayed in the LCD/viewfinder or the card reader’s display.

Compliant with the Cardbus Type II specification, Fujifilm’s E-Series P2 memory cards are adaptable to laptop and desktop PCs equipped with a PC Card slot. Additionally, the memory cards can store content in a complete range of P2-supported frame rates and formats, from high definition to standard definition and from DVCPRO to AVC-Intra 100. As with all Fujifilm P2 cards, each E-Series P2 memory card comes with an individual serial number and is equipped with a write-protect switch to eliminate the possibility of accidental loss of material.

Fujifilm’s E-Series P2 memory cards will be available in early summer 2009 in 16GB and 32GB capacities, with a 64GB card to follow in the autumn. MSRP for the P2 memory cards is: 16GB – $440; 32GB – $640; 64GB – $1,000.
