Camera - - WHAT’S NEW -

West­ern Dig­i­tal (WD), SanDisk has re­leased de­tails of the first 1.0 TB (ter­abytes) ca­pac­ity SDXC mem­ory card. The new card will be part of SanDisk’s Ex­treme Pro se­ries and is de­signed to meet the de­mands of both 4K and 8K video, as well as ultra-high res­o­lu­tion stills cap­ture.

Di­nesh Ba­hal – who is vice pres­i­dent of prod­uct man­age­ment in WD’s Con­tent So­lu­tions Busi­ness Unit – com­mented, “Six­teen years ago we in­tro­duced the first SanDisk 64 MB SD card and to­day we are en­abling ca­pac­i­ties of 1.0 TB. The SanDisk 1.0 TB SD card pro­to­type rep­re­sents an­other sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ment as growth of high-res­o­lu­tion con­tent and ca­pac­ity-in­ten­sive ap­pli­ca­tions such as vir­tual re­al­ity, video sur­veil­lance and 360 video, are pro­gress­ing at as­tound­ing rates”.

The prod­uct is still only at pro­to­type stage so a launch date has yet to be set, but the last time SanDisk showed a pro­to­type mem­ory card at Pho­tok­ina – the 512 GB SDXC card in 2014 – it didn’t take all that long for it to be­come avail­able. For more in­for­ma­tion visit
