Targeting the digital video and higher performance digital camera markets, SanDisk Corp. unveiled a 4-Gigabyte SD High Capacity (SDHC) card on Monday.

SanDisk said the $199 card will be bundled with a MicroMate USB 2.0 reader and is capable of storing more than 2,000 high-resolution pictures, more than 1,000 digital songs and up to 8 hours of MPEG 4 video.

SanDisk said that few manufacturers currently support the SDHC standard, but predicted that will change in the future. SanDisk said that because the latest SD 2.00 specification was developed by the SD Association, the specification will become more popular.

"Demand for high capacity cards continues to increase as storage-intensive applications such as digital cameras and digital video camcorders capable of taking high-resolution pictures and recording high-quality video clips come into the mainstream," Susan Park, SanDisk's retail product marketing manager, said in a statement.
