Kingston CompactFlash Ultimate Named Official Memory Card for 86th Annual Miss America Competition.

Bruce Vartan Boyajian Celebrates 30 Years Capturing the Crowning; Photographer is Profiled in "Look Who's Using Kingston"

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, announced that its line of CompactFlash[R] Ultimate cards took to the stage last night at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas when the new Miss America 2007, Miss Oklahoma Lauren Nelson, was crowned. Official event photographer Bruce Vartan Boyajian selected Kingston[R] 133X CompactFlash Ultimate cards to record his 30thconsecutive year photographing the crowning of the new Miss America and every moment of the four day competition.

"Covering the Miss America competition is an exhaustive and all-consuming process. There are the expected moments, the candids, and of course that all important shot - nabbing the expression of the new Miss America at the exact time she realizes she's the winner," said Boyajian. "There's no more important moment in the competition than when the new Miss America is crowned. I need to be right there with camera and memory card ready to shoot. Kingston is my choice for memory cards because performance must be flawless, and I need to have total faith that my memory cards will do their job, so I can do my job. Kingston provides one of the fastest write speeds on the market, and the higher capacity format means less time changing cards and more time shooting."

Kingston's line of CompactFlash Ultimate cards boast a write speed of 133X and have been specifically engineered to meet the performance needs of professional and advanced amateur photographers. Each card is loaded with Ontrack([R])EasyRecovery([TM])Professional 6.1 software. EasyRecovery helps photographers quickly retrieve lost photos in the unlikely event that a file becomes corrupted or accidentally deleted.

"More and more top professional photographers around the globe are using Kingston Ultimate cards to snare those 'can't miss' moments," said Joe Teng, Flash memory product manager, Kingston. "Whether for personal or professional use, when the stakes are high these cards are the hands down choice. We're proud to work with the Miss America Organization and photographers like Bruce Boyajian. He's essentially put his reputation in our hands and we are excited to be part of this wonderful event."

In addition to providing CompactFlash cards, Kingston is giving each of the 52 contestants a custom co-logo 2 GB DataTraveler[R] USB drive and personalized t-shirt. Art McMaster, president and CEO, Miss America Organization, says, "Kingston is the perfect partner for an event such as the Miss America scholarship competition -- where photos are an indispensable part of recording memories. The contestants love the USB drive and I've been watching them save and share photos and memories using this handy storage device. We're creating history and Kingston is the media card recording the moments."

To honor the work of the Miss America Organization, Boyajian, and future photographers, Kingston has created a new online profile page titled "Look Who's Using Kingston." Visit to learn more.
