Press release   •   Jan 08, 2009 00:30 GMT

Sony has doubled the capacity of its new high speed Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo™ HX, giving customers a massive 16GB of storage. Fast read/write speeds and a free USB adapter make the latest Memory Stick ideal for transferring pictures to a PC from HD camcorders or continuous-shooting DSLRs.

“The rise of compact Full HD camcorders like the forthcoming Sony Handycam® range will drive demand for high-capacity Memory Sticks. “Likewise the Sony α DSLR camera with its five frames per second continuous shooting capability. That said, really large memory reserves are great to have for conventional compact digital cameras too: imagine going on holiday and just never bothering about running out of space. However you look at it, the age of high capacity flash memory is here – and the Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX is leading the charge.”

The inclusion of a free USB adaptor makes it very simple to transfer data onto a PC or notebook, and ensures optimum performance. With 20MB/s read and 15MB/s write1, data transfer times are more than three times faster than the current PRO-Duo can achieve. Another extremely useful bonus comes in the form of the free, downloadable Memory Stick Data Rescue Service which can quickly recover deleted photographs and files.

The Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX uses an 8-bit parallel interface to achieve its superior level of performance and with its full 10 year warranty, represents excellent value for customers who demand the best.
