Transcend Launches 256GB SDXC UHS-I Speed Class 3 Cards for 3D and 4K Video Recording


Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a worldwide leader in storage and multimedia products, is proud to announce the launch of 256GB large capacity SDXC UHS-I cards. Featuring the full support for the Ultra High

Speed Class 3 (U3) specification, Transcend’s SDXC UHS-I U3 cards are capable of reaching incredible read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 60MB/s. The cards also provide the immense storage capacity more than enough to save all the high-resolution 3D, 4K and Full HD recordings.

Unmatched Storage Space up to 256GB for 4K Recording
With a wide range of capacities from 64GB to an enormous 256GB, Transcend’s UHS-I U3 memory cards are fully equipped to handle the increased capacity requirements of professional photography and filmmaking. For instance, the 256GB SDXC UHS-I U3 card can store more than 40,000 high-resolution JPEG images (12 megapixel camera, 6MB file size), over 16,000 RAW images (based on 14MB file size), or a full 16 hours of 4K Ultra High-Definition footage (4096×2160 35Mb/s H.264 AVC compression). Moreover, Transcend’s SDXC UHS-I U3 cards make extended video recording sessions possible thanks to the use of the exFAT file system that allows users to exceed the 4GB size per file limit of FAT32.

95MB/s Transfer Rate with Top-Quality MLC Flash Chips
The Ultra High Speed Class 3 specification guarantees a minimum constant write speed of 30MB/s to facilitate cinema-quality video recording. Transcend’s SDXC UHS-I U3 cards, however, can achieve at least double this performance with top-quality MLC flash chips, offering blazing-fast read and write speeds of up to 95MB/s and 60MB/s. Such performance ensures continuous lag-free smooth 4K and 3D video capture in stunning real-world color and clarity. In devices that do not support the UHS-I specification, Transcend’s SDXC UHS-I U3 cards still offer constant write speeds of at least 10MB/s (SD Speed Class 10 performance), which makes them perfect for Full HD video recording as well as fast-action consecutive shooting.

Transcend’s Free RecoveRx Software
For added value, Transcend’s exclusive RecoveRx software features a user-friendly interface that allows users to search deep within a storage device for traces of erased files that can be rescued; the files include digital photos, documents, music and videos. With just a few mouse clicks, users can easily recover virtually any type of digital files. Moreover, RecoveRx supports SD Card Formatting and Data Protection functions, providing the ultimate convenience to manage any memory card.

All Transcend memory cards are fully tested for compatibility and reliability, and carry Transcend’s renowned Lifetime Warranty. The SDXC UHS-I U3 cards are available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities.
