Maxell has introduced the “E” series of P2 cards for use with P2 cameras and solid-state P2 memory recording systems. The “E” Series provides users with an improved price/performance ratio and faster transfer speeds that allow for rapid, file-based workflow in camera recording, non-linear editing and data transmission applications. “E” Series cards have a transfer speed of 1.2 Gbps and reliability under extreme environmental conditions.
They are available in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB, and feature AVC-Intra 100 compression, resulting in 16, 32 and 64 minutes of High-Def recording capability, respectively.
The “E” series performs in harsh environments, as its design is resistant to vibration, impact, extreme temperatures and humidity. It is reusable for up to five years, and its life is doubled when daily usage is 50% of capacity.
The new card notifies the user when it approaches the end of its life cycle, shown either in the viewfinder/LCD display of the camera or on the card reader, which can be tracked on a computer via P2 formatting software.
Data can be recorded as MXF files and large data can be saved into multiple cards with the card identification system. The P2 card, which meets Type-II PC card standards, can be easily connected to PC card slots for copying and editing, and can be used by either Mac or PC.
