Electronics firms announce new SD partnership20 December 2011 14:20:43
The next major advancement in SD card technology has been announced.
SanDisk will collaborate with Sony, Toshiba, Panasonic and Samsung to produce a system of new content protection for digital media that is stored on flash memory devices.
The Next Generation Secure Memory Initiative will mean that the five organisations will develop high-definition-capable solutions and licensing agreements for SD cards and other internal memory cards which are incorporated into future smartphones and tablet devices.
It is hoped this will further enable the enjoyment of high-definition footage on mobile gadgets, with the first developments being ready for market at some stage next year.
"Consumers are ready for a solution that enables the effortless consumption of online and offline content across multiple device platforms," said Sumit Sadana, senior vice-president of SanDisk.
Earlier this year, SanDisk announced that it was working to produce memory solutions which reduced the amount of power used by mobile computing devices.
