According to the CFA association, Video Performance Guarantee (VPG) is a minimum guaranteed speed specification for writing continuous data streams from applications. The VPG specification is designed for stable high-res video recording (in Pro DSLR and Pro video cameras). This can ensure that the video stream will be saved without interruptions or dropping frames.
