CompactFlash Association drafts CFAST 2

The CompactFlash Association is drafting a new specification for image storage cards: CFast2.0’s performance capability of up to 600MB/sec, and enable CFA to serve new professional video markets such as high definition TV production and cinema video production environments, the association says.

“The higher performance provided by CFast2.0 will further increase the capabilities and value for photographers, videographers, and cinematographers,” the CFA adds.

The CFast2.0 draft specification  will be generally available in Q4 of 2012.
