Milpitas, CA—Lexar doubled the capacity for its Lexar Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 memory card line. The expanded capacity and speed thresholds of the Lexar 512GB card address the needs of cinematographers, filmmakers and content creators who capture high-quality 4K and ProRes video and RAW photos.
The Lexar Professional 3600x CFast 2.0 card line, specifically optimized for ARRI cameras, will double in capacity to 512GB in the first half of 2017.
“As professional imaging technology continues to advance, it’s crucial that memory storage formats keep pace with ever-evolving data needs,” said Jennifer Lee, product marketing director, Lexar. “When shooting 200 frames per sec on a
high-end, production-level camera, it’s easy to fill up an entire 256GB card with content in just 17 minutes.
“Comparatively, the new Professional 512GB 3500x CFast 2.0 card can capture up to more than twice that time. It’s essential that professional content creators shooting in bandwidth-heavy applications such as RAW, 4K, burst mode, time lapse and beyond have access to increasingly higher capacities and faster transfer speeds like those offered by the new 512GB Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 card.”
The 512GB Professional 3500x CFast 2.0 card provides write speeds up to 445MB/s. The speed allows professionals to capture footage and keep shooting. Lee added that content innovators will have the speed and space needed to capture cinema-quality video and quickly power through postproduction with read transfer speeds of up to 525MB/s.
