<p><b>Sydney, May 3, 2007</b> - Lexar Media, Inc., a world leader in advanced digital media technologies, is demonstrating Professional UDMA (Ultra Direct Memory Access) memory cards, the latest addition to the company's award-winning Professional line of high-performance cards at PMA 2007 in Melbourne.</p>
<p>Speed-rated at 300x, or capable of a minimum sustained write speed of 45MB per second, Lexar Professional UDMA cards deliver a 125 per cent performance improvement over Lexar's previous generation 133x CompactFlash® product line when the card is used with a UDMA-enabled device.</p>
<p>Professional photographers today capture a large volume of high-resolution images. Working in conjunction with one of Lexar UDMA-enabled CompactFlash card readers, Lexar Professional UDMA 300x speed-rated cards dramatically improve the professional photographer's digital imaging experience by reducing the time needed to download images captured images to a destination computer.</p>
<p>In addition, the benefits of Lexar Professional UDMA memory cards extend well beyond card-to-computer transfer rates, to improved in-camera performance in several UDMA-enabled digital camera backs and digital SLR cameras expected to be announced later this year.</p>
<p>Like all products in the Lexar Professional line, the 300x speed-rated cards come with a limited lifetime warranty, free dedicated technical support, and a comprehensive suite of software that includes a full version of Corel® Paint Shop Pro® X, Lexar Image Rescue™ 3 and Lexar Backup n Sync™.
