Milpitas, Calif. — SanDisk and Sony will team up to offer a faster Memory Stick (MS) card for high-definition video applications next year.

The new MS PRO HG format will offer data transfer speeds up to three times as fast as existing MS PRO media for a maximum theoretical value of 60MBps. It will also feature a minimum write speed of 15MBps.

The performance gains will enable the recording and viewing of high-definition video off of MS cards. The new cards will also offer capacities up to a maximum of 32GB.

The new MS PRO-HG format will work in existing MS PRO devices, but without the speed enhancements. New HG-compatible host devices will debut next year, as will the new memory cards, the companies said.
