San Diego, CA—Sony Electronics introduced two CEA-M series CFexpress Type A memory cards. Moreover, both the Sony CEA-M1920T and CEA-M960T cards conform to the CFexpress 2.0 and VPG200 standards. Further, the new cards offer ultrahigh 1920GB and 960GB capacities, respectively.
Both cards conform to the VPG200 rating. As a result, the new M series cards guarantee fast, stable video recording without dropped frames. In addition, they are resistant to bending and drop impact. Furthermore, true to their Tough designation, they feature dust and moisture sealing for operability in any environment.

The compact, high-performance memory cards are for professional users who need high capacities and reliable operation. “The CEA-M1920T and CEA-M960T reliably shoot longer on location and have some of the highest available capacities in CFexpress Type A memory cards that comply to VPG standard anywhere in the world. So, running out of media space is not a concern,” Sony announced.
The CFexpress cards provide plenty of capacity for extended video recording or when shooting stills. What’s more, for videographers, the VPG200 Video Performance Guarantee rating enables stable recording at 200 MB/s with no dropped frames for an extended period. This is possible even when recording XAVC S-I 4K footage and high bitrates.
Additionally, despite their large capacities, the CFexpress Type A cards are very compact. Indeed, they are about half the size of Type B cards and even shorter and narrower than SD memory cards.
Sony used an original alloy with superior heat transmission characteristics to conduct heat out of the cards and maintain performance. According to Sony, this results in “long-term stability and reliable operation when internally recording the large volume of data required for 4K 120p video.”
What’s more, the CEA-M1920T and CEA-M960T offer the same dust and moisture resistance, resistance to water, as well as the bending and drop impact of Sony’s CEA-G series CFexpress Type A memory cards.
In addition, Sony’s free desktop applications support protecting important data in the CFexpress Type A cards. Its Media Scan Utility diagnoses the state of the flash memory in memory cards. And Memory Card File Rescue will recover accidentally deleted image data on memory cards. RAW images as well as 4K movie data are supported.
Sony’s CEA-M1920T and CEA-M960T have suggested retail prices of $1,400 and $760, respectively.
