GoFlex Cinema™ Multimedia Drive for Large Screen Enjoyment of Digital Video and Pictures
PARIS, France — 12 October 2011— Seagate (NASDAQ:STX) today unveiled the latest way to bring digital entertainment to the television with the GoFlex Cinema™ multimedia drive. This new high-capacity drive is designed to transform the television into a digital media center. The drive comes equipped with all of the port connections and support for popular file formats that make it easy to start enjoying movies, music and photos away from the computer environment. The long time challenge of migrating digital video and pictures from the personal computer to the entertainment center has now been resolved with the GoFlex Cinema multimedia drive. The streamlined industrial design is modeled after the new GoFlex Desk high-capacity drives announced earlier this month. The GoFlex Cinema drive is now available in 1TB, 2TB and 3TB capacities from consumer electronics retailers and online resellers across Europe.
With support for MKV, H.264 and MP4, the GoFlex Cinema multimedia drive will allow you to play back the majority of video formats in 1080 HD quality. This high-capacity drive can be used as a home for all your media needs. Load it up with content and then connect it to your home theater for hours of entertainment. Additionally, digital photos and video can be moved to the drive without the use of a computer. Simply connect a digital camera to GoFlex Cinema multimedia drive and transfer the files directly from the camera. Then, with the included remote control, simply sit back and enjoy the slide show. The intuitive graphical interface makes it a breeze to find the files you wish to enjoy and all this is done from the comfort of your sofa.
First debuted in May of 2010, the award-winning GoFlex® Family of hard drives provide an alternative approach to external storage solutions by allowing users to change interface adapters to stay current with the latest in interface technology. With USB 3.0 still undergoing adoption and the emergence of Thunderbolt™ technology in the coming months, the GoFlex adapter concept has been proven as an idea that works and Seagate will continue with this design for future iterations of the company’s external hard drives . The GoFlex drives are also Windows and Mac OSX compatible and have the flexibility to go between both operating systems. The GoFlex Cinema multimedia drive as part of this GoFlex storage system is designed to grow with your needs. As your media library grows, upgrade the built-in storage with a higher capacity GoFlex Desk drive.
