SanDisk's V-Mate video memory card recorder will hit the Taiwan market next month at a price of NT$4,599 (US$140), according to sources with the company.
The V-Mate captures video content from an analog source directly onto a flash memory card, allowing playback of recorded video content by simply inserting the flash memory card into a compatible mobile device.
Card formats that the device supports include SD, MMC, and Memory Stick/PRO/Duo/PRO Duo.
The sources said SanDisk is aiming to eventually have video memory card recorders replace DVD recorders as the market mainstream.
SanDisk expects its memory card shipments to the Taiwan market to grow 40% on-year in December, the sources added.
