SanDisk Unveils Lineup of Retail Products and More
SanDisk today unveiled a broad lineup of new retail products and introduced a new preservation solutions category. SanDisk’s product portfolio addresses all market segments - from mobile phones and cameras to notebooks and tablets - and use cases ranging from entry level to professional.
SanDisk Memory Vault: Preserve the Memories
SanDisk introduced a new product that is tested to preserve images in their original quality for up to 100 years. The SanDisk Memory Vault provides consumers with a convenient, reliable way to pass down their images for generations to come - a photo album for the digital age.
SanDisk released the results from an online survey conducted on its behalf by Harris Interactive from July 28-August 1, 2011 among 2,294 U.S. adults aged 18 and older. The survey found that 79 percent of U.S. adults who have digital photos plan on passing them down to future generations. Photos are so precious that 64 percent of U.S. adults would not consider destroying their family photo collection for any amount of money, not even for one million dollars.
Valuable photos deserve reliable storage solutions. SanDisk developed the SanDisk Memory Vault using Chronolock technology, which incorporates the key elements of advanced solid-state storage to create a proprietary memory management solution. This allows the device to provide consumers with peace of mind that their precious photos and videos will be preserved for up to 100 years.
