Toshiba to Release microSDHC Memory Cards for HD Content Viewing


Irvine, CA—Toshiba Corporation and Toshiba America Electronic Components (TAEC) launched a new microSDHC memory card based on SeeQVault technology. The new cards provide a platform for storing and distributing high-definition content.

SeeQVault is a content protection technology developed by Toshiba Corporation, Panasonic Corporation, Samsung Electronics Co. and Sony Corporation that is licensed through NSM Initiatives. The technology applies bidirectional authentication with a unique identifier and public key infrastructure to give consumers a secure environment for storing and distributing their high-definition images, videos and other content.

The technology gives consumers access to their latest digital content and the freedom to enjoy it across platforms. The SeeQVault card can be used for playback of content from a smartphone, tablet or TV with a high level of security.

The initial product lineup includes 16 gigabyte (GB) and 32GB capacities compatible with the Ultra High Speed Bus I and the U1 UHS speed class. Both cards will offer 40MB/sec read and 20MB/sec write speeds. Toshiba began sampling the cards in March and will move to commercialization by the end of 2013.
