Silicon Power Announces Cinema Series CF Cards for 4K and 8K Video Recording

For professional photographers, videographers, and cinematographers, a reliable memory card is just as important as using high-end cameras and recorders. In addition, since the advent of 5G, the demand for high quality has become even more prevalent.

Angelbird Announces CFexpress 2.0 Type B Media Cards

Angelbird Technologies, the premier developer of camera-specific media solutions for professional creatives, announces the addition of two CFexpress 2.0 Type B memory cards to their high-performance lineup of AV PRO media solutions. The introduction of this new media format required us taking a step back and first asking questions that assessed the real-world challenges of content creation. "I know first-hand that you don't get a second shot at a true creative moment. With CFexpress we saw an opportunity to improve the technology, not just offer an amped-up, hot new form factor," says Angelbird co-founder and CEO, Roman Rabitsch.

"We start with an understanding of the increased demands of recording at ultra-high fps in resolutions up to 12K and beyond. We needed a powerful processor, a way to manage heat by-product, and a card that wouldn't drain battery life." From the beginning, we focused on sustained performance which led us to the Y1 controller - a super-processor that wasn't readily compatible with CFexpress technology. After long engineering trials at our media lab in Austria, we succeeded. We are now proud to offer unique CFexpress media solutions with the highest sustained speed and precision performance extended throughout the entire capacity of the card.

Seagate Reveals Lyve Drive Mobile System

Seagate had plenty of things to show off at their CES booth, however, some things specially stuck out, like the Lyve Drive Mobile system. Developed to address the need for data movement between different endpoints, the Lyve Drive system comes in a few flavors. First in the line is a Lyve Drive Cards and Card Reader solution, which offers 1 TB CFexpress cards on the go, and a portable reader for them to read the data on the spot. Next up is the Lyve Drive Shutte which resembles an autonomous data storage and data transport solution that offers capacities of up to 16 TB of HDD or SSD storage.

Another Part of the Lyve Drive ecosystem is a Lyve Drive Mobile Array, which offers a sealed and ruggedized solution for carrying up to 6 of Seagate's 18 TB Exos HAMR (heat-assisted magnetic recording) hard drives for a total capacity of 108 TB. Next in the lineup is the Lyve Drive Modular Array - a 4-bay flexible solution that offers various configurations for business, so their deployment strategy of these devices varies. It uses Seagate's MACH.2 multi-actuator technology that transfers the data concurrently. Last but not least is a Lyve Drive Rackmount Reciver which is a 4U rackmount hub that allows for direct connection of Lyve Drive arrays into the data center, without a need to reconnect any of the data center networking specially for storage transfer.

Angelbird Announces CFexpress Cards

Angelbird Technologies, the premier developer of camera-specific media for professional creatives, announces the addition of CFexpress Type B memory cards to their high-performance lineup of AV PRO media solutions.The call for quick adoption of advanced digital video production standards to 6K, 8K and beyond, is being driven by high-profile international broadcasting as well as an increased need for industrial data processing and performance requirements. CFexpress memory media meets the high-speed demands of new technology (media that can write data at a minimum of 400 MB/sec).

It also mirrors the XQD form factor-- allowing select cameras that currently utilize XQD to now also accept CFexpress with a firmware update. But different from XQD, is that the CFexpress adopts the PCIe Gen 3 interface standards promoted by the CompactFlash Association. Angelbird's AV PRO CFX and AV PRO CFX XT offer read/write speeds up to 1700 MB/s and 1400 MB/s. CFexpress memory cards perform at speeds 3.5x faster than CFast technology- the current memory card leader for high-bitrate video production.

ProGrade Digital Shows Off 1TB CFexpress 1.0 Card Exceeding 1400 MB/s Read Speed

ProGrade Digital, founded with a mission to provide the highest quality professional grade digital memory cards and workflow solutions, has become the first company to publicly demonstrate the CFexpress 1.0 technology with 1TB of capacity. Debut of this important next generation digital memory card form factor, presented by CEO Wes Brewer and VP of Marketing Mark Lewis at NAB in Las Vegas, provides solid proof that the industry is moving toward productization of this new standard.

"The CFexpress standard has been evolving for several years within the CompactFlash Association as a successor to both CFast and XQD formats. We are pleased to be working within the CFA and aside device manufacturers to bring to market this next generation removable storage standard," said Brewer. "Industry adoption of CFexpress will allow for much higher resolution and higher bit rate image capture than ever before in many still image and video capture devices. Faster offload speeds will also greatly benefit the post-capture workflow through the extremely high read speeds it provides. With our demonstration today, we've also been able to show compatibility for the CFexpress Type B form factor with XQD memory cards-showing operation of both card standards in a common Thunderbolt 3 reader."
