SanDisk has announced a 4GB SD High Capacity (SDHC) card.
The manufacturer is claiming the cards can store more than 2000 high resolution images, over 1000 digital songs or up to eight hours of MPEG4 video content.
The card will be released in a bundle with SanDisk’s MicroMate USB 2.0 reader and is expected to be available locally in the last quarter of this year. These readers will work with both SDHC and SD cards, however SDHC cards require an SDHC-compatible reader.
SDHC is the designation for SD cards larger than 2GB that support 4GB to 32GB capacities. The new standard was developed as more consumers begin to use products such as digital video cameras.
“Demand for high capacity cards continues to increase as storage-intensive applications such as digital cameras and digital video camcorders capable of taking high-resolution pictures and recording high quality video clips come into the mainstream,” says SanDisk’s retail product marketing manager Susan Park.
