Sony’s new 16GB Memory Stick PRO Duo media

Memory Stick PRO Duo

Sony Europe’s Recording Media & Energy (RME) division today announced the expansion of its high-definition recording options with the introduction of 16GB Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media. This large-capacity flash storage device is ideal for Sony’s new Handycam® camcorders based on AVCHD™ technology as well as the latest high-resolution Sony cameras (Cyber-shotTM & α). Users can store up to 110 minutes of high-definition video recorded in 1920 mode, almost 6 hours of HD video when shooting in 1440 LP mode, and more than 4000 still pictures in 10 Megapixel resolution.

The 16GB Memory Stick® PRO Duo™ media, is the optimal recording media for HD content because of its ability to quickly and easily transfer large amounts of video content between devices. The 16GB Memory Stick PRO Duo media can be removed from the camcorder and inserted directly into the Memory Stick slot of a PC or laptop or in a compatible adaptor. In Europe, for the initial launch promotion, it will be bundled with a handy USB adaptor – making it even easier to transfer files from your devices onto your PC for editing and sharing content.

Memory Stick PRO Duo

The 16GB Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media will be available in March 2008.

Mark2 Certification

To designate AVCHD recording support, the Memory Stick PRO format has added the Mark2 certification. Memory Stick media products with the Mark2 logo meet the higher writing speed requirements and are certified to operate with AVCHD recording products.
