Phase One Improves Efficiency And Storage Security For Professional PhotographersPhase One A/S, Photo Plus East, New York, US (October 20, 2005):
Phase One®, the world leader in digital imaging solutions, is constantly improving their Pseries digital backs to satisfy professional digital photographers’ desire for faster captures and a more efficient workflow. Phase One today announces that its P-series digital camera backs, including the new P 45, P 30 and P 21 products, are now bundled with the award winning professional SanDisk Extreme III Compact Flash storage cards and accommodating USB readers. Phase One is the only photographic hardware manufacturer in the world that can use the full bandwidth of SanDisk Extreme III cards.
The Phase One 3S technology – “Secure Storage System” has recently been introduced in the latest Phase One P-series firmware. The 3S technology improves the storage security level by checking the validity on every Compact Flash card inserted in the P-back. This technology eliminates the risk of accidentally writing to a damaged storage media. Phase One was the first digital back vendor to provide storage on memory cards and is naturally now also the first in this field to implement enhanced storage efficiency and security Professional photographers are constantly on a quest for an ever more efficient workflow, especially when creating very high quality images. They also require confidence that when on a shoot — especially when working untethered — their storage devices are robust, secure and work well with their other components.
Providing SanDisk Extreme III cards with the Phase One digital camera backs will enable faster capturing of large image files, faster viewing of the files and faster data transfer rates. Most cards from other vendors only have write speeds of 9 megabytes (MB) per second. The SanDisk Extreme III cards more than double the standard write speed by performing at an impressive 20 MB per second. The range of cards can store 1, 2, 4 or 8 gigabytes of images.
Espen Beck, Product Manager for Phase One digital backs says, “Phase One constantly strives to enable professional photographers to work with the best components, both through our own product innovations and by bundling with other best of breed products. By coupling SanDisk’s technology with the quality, portability, efficiency and security of Phase One’s Pback range, professional photographers can confidently realize the optimum workflow achievable from their photographic components. He concluded, “The robustness of SanDisk Extreme III cards perfectly complements Phase One’s recent launch of the Secure Storage System, “3S” which is included with its P-series of camera backs.”
