Jun 27, 2023 | WOODSTOCK, Ill., June 27, 2023

Other World Computing® www.OWC.com – The leading end-to-end ecosystem solution provider of computer hardware, accessories, and software for both consumers and professionals – today announced the expansion of the OWC Atlas Ecosystem with the release of 1TB and 2TB Atlas Ultra CFexpress memory cards.

The two new high-capacity memory cards provide incredible 1700MB/s write and 1850MB/s read real-world speeds and ultra-dependable 1500MB/s minimum sustained write speed. These high-performance Atlas Ultra CFexpress cards are designed to tackle today’s extreme data needs, enabling professional filmmakers to capture amazingly life-like 8K RAW video with cinema cameras like the RED V-Raptor/XL and Komodo-X and flagship professional mirrorless cameras like the Nikon Z8 and Z9 or Canon R5C.

“As image resolution and color depth increase, recording time decreases. These higher capacity cards are the perfect solution for longer recording times at the highest resolutions and bitrates. The larger capacity points are also incredibly performative, giving us best-in-class reading, writing and workflows optimization,” said Ian Stone, Category Manager for OWC memory cards. 

OWC’s extremely thorough quality control process allows users to shoot fearlessly knowing the Atlas Ultra CFexpress cards will flawlessly deliver the speed and data integrity needed when users only have one chance to capture the moment. The Atlas Ultra memory cards shrug off the toughest environmental challenges, including X-rays, UV rays, shocks, drops, and extreme temperatures. Shoot, store, and swap with peace of mind that each card has creatives’ work – and back – well protected.

The new capacity points complete a full ecosystem of cards, readers, and software. OWC does not look to make point solutions, but instead a suite of products that aim to make the creative professionals’ workflow move seamlessly and faster. Innergize works with all Atlas cards to keep them out-of-box fresh throughout the product lifecycle and is a free solution that comes with the new 1TB and 2TB Atlas Ultra cards.
