“We are extremely happy to release our new Refresh Pro™ software which provides our customers with a cost-effective tool to ensure ProGrade Digital memory cards are always operating at peak performance,” said Wes Brewer, founder, and CEO of ProGrade Digital. “This unique product is something that many professionals have indicated is something they would value as part of their workflow since performance and reliability are always top concerns in the field. With Refresh Pro™, we have eliminated these concerns by allowing them to know the present state of health in simple green, yellow and red status indicators before going out on an important shoot. Additionally, all memory cards begin to slow down over time after they have gone through multiple writes and erase cycles which makes them “dirty”. Refresh Pro™ also enables customers to quickly “refresh” their cards and return them to an original out-of-the-box performance level.” Learn more about how flash memory works and how Refresh Pro™ brings a revolutionary tool to the photographer and videographer’s arsenal” in the Refresh Pro™ White Paper
