Toshiba has announced that it will be launching the first in a series of high-capacity SD memory cards this November. The new 4GB SDHC card and subsequent 8GB and 16GB SDHC planned for 2007 are designed to address the memory-hungry requirements of audio, video and telecommunications devices.

Featuring a maximum data transfer rate of 5MB per second, the first cards in Toshiba?s new SDHC range will be fully compliant with the SDA Speed Class 4 classification that supports a minimum data transfer rate of 4MB per second. The combination of capacity and high-speed operation means that the Toshiba cards will be well suited to the recording and playback of MPEG2 and MPEG4 video in both standard and high-definition formats.

All of Toshiba?s SDHC cards and associated packaging will be clearly marked with the SDHC logo and the SD Speed Class, allowing consumers to easily confirm that the cards are fully compatible with their SDHC-enabled equipment.
