San Jose, CA – Oct 16, 2020, 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 PG09 card reader, a dual-slot card reader for CFexpress Type A and SD cards. The PG09 reader is capable of transferring data at speeds of up to 1.25 GB/second from both card slots simultaneously, allowing users of CFexpress Type A devices to utilize the maximum resolution settings on their devices. The PG09 is equipped with a USB 3.2 Gen 2 interface, and just like the rest of the ProGrade Digital card reader line, the PG09 comes with a patented magnetic base and adhesive metal plate that allows users to mount the reader to any work surface, such as the back of a laptop.

“We have created our newest PG09 USB 3.2, Gen 2 card reader to support the quickly emerging standard of CFexpress Type A” said Wes Brewer, founder and CEO of ProGrade Digital. “We are excited to introduce yet another industry-leading dual-slot reader that provides greatly improved levels of performance to the workflow of creative professionals. Being able to download content from both a CFexpress Type A and an SD UHS-II memory card simultaneously, utilizing the multi-in capability inherent in newer USB 3.2, Gen 2 enabled computers, allows a perfect matching of capability for owners of newer cameras like the Sony a7S III – which supports both card types.”
