“ProGrade Digital is pleased to announce the expansion of our professional line to include a range of V60, UHS II microSDXC cards. With this announcement, ProGrade Digital becomes one of the only companies to offer a microSDXC with a certified video speed class rating of V60–which is critical for uninterrupted video capture by many professional and mirrorless cameras from companies such as Sony™, Canon™, and Panasonic™,” said Wes Brewer, founder and CEO of ProGrade Digital. “As more and more professionals add drones plus smaller action and point-of-view cams to their workflows to produce broadcast, sport, travel and documentary footage, the need for high performance, high-quality microSD cards is increasing. The ProGrade Digital microSDXC memory cards bring extra versatility, when paired with the included SD UHS-II adapter, by also allowing professionals to record footage created by DSLR and mirrorless cameras with full-size SD card slots.”

The company also introduced two workflow readers. Mark Lewis, VP of Marketing for ProGrade Digital, said, “Our new dual-slot readers support the USB 3.1, Gen. 2 protocol. This protocol renders a data transfer rate of up to 10Gb/s. At that speed, envision the time to be saved when transferring files, especially from today’s data-intensive cameras. Insert a memory card into each slot and get a concurrent maximum speed of transfer.”
