SD Card read speed increased to 300MB/s and Write speed increased to 250MB/s on V90 cards plus the ability to monitor card health and refresh cards to factory-fresh condition.

San Jose, CA August 20, 2019, 8:00 am —ProGrade Digital™, founded with a mission to provide the highest quality professional grade digital memory cards and workflow solutions, announces its new line of SD memory cards—a step up in performance to sustained read speed of up to 300MB/second and sustained write speed of up to 250MB/second on V90 cards. The V60 SD cards have a step up in performance to a sustained read speed of up to 250MB/second and sustained write speed of up to 130MB/second. There is no increase in price with these new speeds, offering photographers and videographers a great value for their money. ProGrade Digital SDXC UHS-II, U3, Class 10, V60 and V90 cards bring peak performance to upper-end DSLR, mirrorless, camcorder and digital cinema cameras—cameras that produce incredibly rich data streams and require more from a memory card. This elevated performance ensures faster capture during data-intensive processing, most notably for the Panasonic GH5S, Panasonic AUEVA1, Canon Cinema EOS line, Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Sony a7 line. ProGrade Digital SDXC UHS-II memory cards in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities are available in August.

“Today’s creative pioneers are producing more video than ever before,” said Wes Brewer, founder and CEO of ProGrade Digital. “There are a range of recording options in today’s highend professional camera market–6K, 4K, Full HD at varying frames per second (fps)–many of which require write speed performance from memory cards not commonly seen in the past. To serve these needs, we increased the performance across our SDXC product line. Additionally, we’ve incorporated our unique Refresh Pro™ capability into all capacities allowing professionals to refresh cards back to factory-fresh condition as well as monitor the health of their cards before an important shoot.”
