  VALHALLA, NY, Apr 20 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
NAB Show 2009 Booth #C7116 (www.fujifilmusa.com/proav) -- FUJIFILM
Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. (NASDAQ: FUJI) today announced that it will
introduce the Fujifilm E-Series P2 memory cards for the Panasonic P2
professional video system at NAB 2009 in Las Vegas, NV. The E-Series
includes 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB P2 memory cards, and offer users a high
capacity, lower cost media option for use in compatible P2 system
hardware.

    "The new E-Series extends Fujifilm's P2 offering with an affordable card
line that is perfect for a wide range of users," said Tom Volpicella, vice
president of business development, Professional Products, FUJIFILM
Recording Media U.S.A. "The E-Series cards are ideal for broadcasters,
professional and freelance videographers, and also offer distributors and
rental facilities an opportunity to extend their product offerings to
their clients."

    Fujifilm's E-Series P2 memory cards offer an impressive maximum transfer
rate of 1.2 Gbps when used with compatible hardware, made possible by a
newly developed high-speed memory controller. The lifespan of Fujifilm's
E-Series P2 memory cards is rated for 5 years of use when recorded once
daily at full capacity (100%) and up to 10 years when used at half
capacity (50%). Offering the high reliability and durability that
professionals require, each card is also designed to stand up to
challenging conditions in any environment and is shock, vibration and
temperature resistant. As a card approaches the end of its life cycle, a
notification is automatically displayed in the LCD/viewfinder or the card
reader's display.

    Compliant with the Cardbus Type II specification, Fujifilm's E-Series P2
memory cards are adaptable to laptop and desktop PCs equipped with a PC
Card slot. Additionally, the memory cards can store content in a complete
range of P2-supported frame rates and formats, from high definition to
standard definition and from DVCPRO to AVC-Intra 100. As with all Fujifilm
P2 cards, each E-Series P2 memory card comes with an individual serial
number and is equipped with a write-protect switch to eliminate the
possibility of accidental loss of material.

    Fujifilm's E-Series P2 memory cards will be available in early summer 2009
in 16GB and 32GB capacities, with a 64GB card to follow in the autumn.
MSRP for the P2 memory cards is: 16GB - $440; 32GB - $640; 64GB - $1,000.
