Sony has launched its first 5GB CompactFlash TypeII media, under the new CompactVault brand.

The new COMPACTVAULT provides the latest addition to Sony’s removable media range, enabling storage of up to 1600 images or four hours of MPEG 4 recording. The one-inch hard disk drive boasts a native transfer rate of up to 96.7Mbps, which is further maximized when the COMPACTVAULT is used in conjunction with future Cybercapture enabled products, providing even faster recording of images and higher quality of videos, in what is termed AV mode.

The new COMPACTVAULT media is compatible with all products with a CF Type II slot. Once the images have been recorded onto the COMPACTVAULT media, they can easily be transferred onto computers running Windows ME, Windows 2000 and Windows XP, either directly through a PC’s CompactFlash Type II slot or in the case of many laptops via a PCMCIA adapter.

The 5GB COMPACTVAULT will be available from November 2005.
