Angelbird and ARRI Create CFast Memory card for high-end productivity and Camera Work
ARRI has worked closely with Angelbird Technologies GmbH, a hi-tech company based in Vorarlberg, Austria. Angelbird is no stranger to film production, and some of their gear can be found at ARRI Rental European locations. The company's young yet experienced team has a passion for quality and great attention to detail.
"Many of the CFast cards we tested delivered good results, but it usually takes the manufacturers a few attempts to stabilize their performance for high data-rate write patterns, Angelbird really stood out-they listened to us closely and quickly determined which parameters they had to tweak."
Oliver Temmler - Product Manager for Storage Media at the ARRI headquarters in Munich, Germany.
For the ARRI Edition CFast card, the Angelbird team did not want to settle for "good enough" but went straight for "the very best." They developed an ARRI-specific card that uses a combination of thermally conductive material and so-called underfill, to provide superior heat dissipation from the chips, and to secure the electronic components against mechanical damage.
The result is a rock-solid 256 GB CFast 2.0 card, with super-stable recording performance all the way across the storage space, making it the perfect addition to an ALEXA Mini or AMIRA camera setup.
