Iomega ScreenPlay HD Multimedia Drive Brings High-Def Web Video To Your Home Theater
The new Iomega ScreenPlay HD Multimedia Drive is a 500 GB portable external hard drive that delivers high-definition content from your PC straight to your HDTV. Capable of storing 2 million photos, 9,250 hours of music, or 750 hours of video (MPEG-2), the Iomega ScreenPlay is a perfect example of how companies are leveraging the popularity of LCD and plasma TV's to bring peripheral devices to the forefront.
About the size of a typical paperback book, the ScreenPlay has a 3.5-inch, 7200 RPM NTFS file-formatted hard drive, and is easily connected to most newer model TV's through HDMI, composite, component, or SCART (RGB) connections. The drive gives you the ability to choose video settings from a standard-def 480i to an upscaled 720p/1080i, and supports a variety of codecs including MP3, AC3 (Dolby(R) Digital Encoding), WAV, WMA, MPEG-1, MPEG-2 (AVI/VOB), MPEG-4 (AVI/DiVX 3.11, 4.x, 5.x/XViD) and JPEG. All Windows PC transfers use the USB 2.0 interface and a remote control is included.
Priced at $209.95, the Iomega ScreenPlay is now available in North America and will see an international release in May, priced at 180 Euros.
