Due to the growing demand for high resolution contents, the leader in global storage technology has developed the 1 TB SDXC card for photographers and videographers globally. It'll be great if you are shooting 4K and 8K contents that consumes a lot of space.
“Showcasing the most advanced imaging technologies is truly exciting for us,” said Dinesh Bahal, vice president, product management, Content Solutions Business Unit, Western Digital. “Sixteen years ago we introduced the first SanDisk 64MB SD™ card and today we are enabling capacities of 1TB. Over the years our goal has remained the same; continue to innovate and set the pace for the imaging industry. The SanDisk 1TB SD card prototype represents another significant achievement as growth of high-resolution content and capacity-intensive applications such as virtual reality, video surveillance and 360 video, are progressing at astounding rates.”
As a result, the SanDisk 1 TB SDXC card is expected to expand the possibilities for professional photographers and videographers where they can create their high-quality content without worrying that much about your storage or the interruption of changing cards.
“Just a few short years ago the idea of a 1TB capacity point in an SD card seemed so futuristic – it’s amazing that we’re now at the point where it’s becoming a reality. With the growing demand for applications like VR, we can certainly use 1TB when we’re out shooting continuous high-quality video. High-capacity cards allow us to capture more without interruption, streamlining our workflow, and eliminating the worry that we may miss a moment because we have to stop to swap out cards,” said Sam Nicholson, CEO of Stargate Studios and member of the American Society of Cinematographers.
Given that Western Digital showcased the SanDisk 1 TB SDXC card, it means that its official launch is just around the corner. There's no word yet on its technical specifications, features, international availability, and pricing.
