    Panasonic pre-NAB press release: P2 card price drops


    Cost of Popular 64GB P2 Card Falls More than 30%

    SECAUCUS, NJ (February 22, 2011) Panasonic Solutions Company has announced major price reductions in its entire line-up of high-capacity, high-speed P2 cards. Effective today, the company’s E-Series of 64GB, 32GB and 16GB P2 cards will carry suggested list prices of $695, $480 and $380, respectively. The new pricing reflects a 30% reduction in the company’s popular 64GB P2 card.

    E Series P2 cards offer fast transfer speeds (up to 1.2Gbps), which is substantially faster than most professional solid-state memory cards offered by other manufacturers. All P2 cards use high-quality solid-state memory, extremely durable, die-cast aluminum construction and impact-proof connectors. This is in direct contrast to other solid-state memory card products, which often feature breakable, plastic casing with less reliable connectors. Additionally, P2 cards offer dependable performance during recording in all types of environments, as well as instant access and complete data compatibility in all P2 camcorders and workflow tools.

    Panasonic’s P2 solid-state memory cards ensure highly reliable video, audio, and metadata recording, especially in challenging conditions of extreme temperature range, shock, and vibration. P2 cards allow professional users to benefit from a fast, easy, file-based workflow and exceptional reliability, and work in all current P2 products.
